There is no one correct answer. The receiver can be located at the same level or at a different level. When it is at a different level it is more often above the compressor(s) but it can be at a lower level. The condenser piping, the system feed and compressor oil cooling will all be factors in determining the best location for the receiver in a particular installation.

Mean thing you do and work right designing and piping

- Check valve after compressor and pipe Slop to condenser and from condenser to receiver

With equalizing pipe (between receiver and condenser)
oil drain valve + sight glass+ safety valve for receiver
oil cooler should be close as much as you can to compressor
