Anyone familiar with tables for sizing
surge drums for 134a refrigerant, or supplier.
typical use of the surge drum is for flooding
the evaporator and protect the compressor from liquid carry over.
Ammonia and R22 are the most common refrigerant we typically design for in our industrial refrigeration company; but the consultant is insisting on 134a refrigerant.
I have my own spreadsheet to size the vessel, simply I would like to verify my calc. with with someone who had a similar experience
