Oil Reservoir


Oil reservoirs are storage tanks that receive oil from oil separator and provide its return to the compressor’s crankcase through oil level regulator. Amount of oil circulating in a system varies depending on operating conditions. Oil reservoir prevents compressor’s crankcase from staying without oil during potential ?uctuations by providing additional storage capacity. Oil reservoir prevents liquid refrigerant from flowing to the oil level regulators and therefore ?uctuations in the oil level caused by compressors are prevented.
