In this new part of our tutorial we will add new elements to the basic circuit. (If you do not know we talked stop by here). We want to emphasize that this is a very basic tutorial, if you want further information do not hesitate to contact us. Let’s start by presenting the oil separator. As the name suggests, its function is to separate the oil mixed with the refrigerant. Once separated oil returns to the compressor. If an oil separator, the compressor can sometimes go without if oil is not used, which would lead to a breakdown. separador-de-aceite-253x300The position of this element is just after the compressor:
circuito2We continue with the liquid receiver. This element is used to quickly remove condensate and thus have the entire floor space in the condenser coil.
recipienteIn the liquid receiver is installed a safety valve, which is used to define the maximum pressure in the circuit. If the pressure gets too high, it opens and releases excess gas to the outside.
