  • Evaporating temperature part of two-stage cycle -30°C to -40°C
  • Condensing temperature one-stage cycle +30°C to +40°C
  • Condensing temperature part of two-stage cycle -10°C to +5°C

Accessories:

  • Integrated oil drain
  • Nozzles for preferred oil drain method
  • Predefined liquid level and charge
  • Check valve for start-up flow control
  • Multiple separation methods
  • Nozzles for regulation and control devices

Advantages

  • Reduced installation height eliminates the need to modify overhead cabling
  • Low ammonia charge requirement allows utilisation of existing system, thus reducing costs
  • Shorter height and length allowing installation onsite without dismantling
  • No additional support is needed, as the U-Turn separator is supported entirely by the plate heat exchanger
  • Easy maintenance, as both sides of the plate heat exchanger are fully accessible.
  • All ammonia connections access the same side which makes installation easy
  • Stainless steel ensuring corrosion resistance and no need of surface treatment

Application

  • Designed for use with plate heat exchangers in ammonia applications
