This refrigerant reservoir called the receiver is found in units that are using a TEX (temperature expansion) valve. When the heat load demand diminishes, the valve throttles the refrigerant flow. The excess refrigerant is stored in the receiver until a load demand is made. In some newer units engineers have designed some of the condenser coils slightly larger than needed to act as a storage area for excess refrigerant. In most light commercial refrigeration systems, along with heat pumps, the receiver is commonly seen. Figure 12-1 shows a typical receiver. This component is installed in the liquid line close to the condenser coil.
