Has anyone any input as to why most of the packs designed and built by Linde do not contain oil seperators. This applies to LT & HT applications.

Linde packs use an oil return method inside the suction accumulator.

A nominal amount of oil sits in the bottom of the accumulator & is carried down the suction of any running compressor through an 'oil return screw' (protruding from the underside of the accumulator).

By setting these screws, you can adjust the flow rate.

Although many question the effectiveness of this gravity system as opposed to the traditional pressurised system, Linde have utilised this design for many years and it works, so long as you have the screws set correctly.

Linde have a couple of commissioning engineers who are experts with the Linde oil system (namely: **** Early & Alan Barker), if you can get to speak to them.

Hope this helps.
