Bi-Directional Filter-Drier

ref. Bi-Directional Filter-Drier

Bi-directional filter-driers are used in refrigeration systems with two-way flow to absorb moisture and acid in the system and to filter out the impurities.

Selection Formulas

Filter Driers for liquid line are manufactured in compliance with ARI Standard 710. Maximum flow rate of liquid refrigerant at a differential pressure of 0,07bar (1psi) is indicated by kW (ton) which is based on the temperature of liquid refrigerant 30°C (86°F) and the following mass flow:

  • 0,40 kg/min/kW (3.1 lb/min/ton) R134a
  • 0,53 kg/min/kW (4.1 lb/min/ton) R404A, R507
  • 0,39 kg/min/kW (3.0 lb/min/ton) R22, R407C
  • 0,36 kg/min/kW (2.8 lb/min/ton) R410A

Note: Data on water absorption is based on the following EPD (method: ASHRAE Standard 63.1):

  • 60ppm R22
  • 15ppm R12
  • 30ppm R502
  • 50ppm R134a, R404A, R507, R410A, R407C

Note: The above data is based on clean system at ideal conditions; with impurities accumulated in the filter, the flow may decrease.
