Protection of all parts in AC loop
The receiver drier is a component that protects all the other parts of the A/C loop. It is located between the condenser outlet and the expansion valve inlet, on the high pressure side of the circuit.
The receiver drier has different roles:
- To retain moisture and contaminants from the system (during the receiver drier lifetime)
- To finalise and secure condensation of the fluid
- To compensate for the variations of fluid volume
- To ensure oil return to the compressor
Valeo proposes the receiver driers for Heavy duty, in it for example for MAN truck applications.
