Chil-Con optimizes oil separation from refrigeration system discharge gas. In the system from Henry Technologies Inc., oil charge is decreased because most of the oil returns to the compressor crankcase at a steady rate. Oil carryover is reduced to 3 to 10 ppm. Single-stage and booster models are suited for use with reciprocating compressors. Unit has 2 to 5" connections for common halocarbon, ammonia and hydrocarbon systems.
