Inlet flow deflector guides refrigerant toward accumulator wall for smooth flow and gradual expansion
Accumulators should normally be sized to be capable of holding 50% of the refrigerant charge in TXV systems, and 70% in fixed orifice systems; proper sizing ensures optimum liquid refrigerant and oil flow back to the compressor
Protective screen and orifice assembly protects against foreign particles and contaminants from affecting metering function
Solid copper connections
Powder paint coating exceeds ASTM 500 hour salt spray tests
Integral 430°F fuse plug is included as a safety feature for releasing internal system pressure in the event the accumulator is exposed to excessively high temperatures.
Suitable for R-22 and R-410A, 355 psig design pressure
