A/C Compressor Oil Separator Effectiveness Test Standard
This SAE Standard establishes the test conditions and reporting method for quantifying refrigerant circuit oil circulation rate (OCR) reduction effectiveness of mobile air conditioning compressors using R-134a and R-1234yf refrigerants that include oil separators and/or other design features for the purpose of reducing the OCR in the refrigerant circuit.
Rationale: It is well recognized that reducing the amount of oil circulating through the refrigerant circuit of a mobile air conditioning system will generally improve the system energy efficiency, as expressed by coefficient of performance (COP). This document establishes a standardized test procedure for quantifying oil circulation reduction effectiveness of compressors with oil separators and/or other means of reducing oil circulation through the refrigerant circuit of a mobile air conditioning system using R-134a or R-1234yf refrigerant.
