New 139A Coalescent Oil Separator for CO2 by Temprite

US-based Temprite Company announces, on, the launch of an addition to their 130 Series of coalescent oil separators for transcritical CO2 applications. The new 139A model ensures high efficiency for larger R744 refrigeration systems.

The Temprite 130 Series is optimised for CO2 transcritical refrigeration applications and builds on the previous success of Temprite’s 920 and 920R Series coalescent oil separators, both extensively used in subcritical applications for many years.

The 130 Series utilises the most efficient oil-refrigerant filtering/separation technology available. An efficient oil-gas separation technology becomes both more important and challenging when using CO2, as the refrigerant has a higher density than conventional refrigerants.

Ambient outdoor temperature can also be troublesome for CO2 systems. Now, the manufacturer has developed the new 139A separator to bring maximum thermal efficiency especially to large CO2 refrigeration systems. With twice the separation capacity of the Model 137A, large-rack refrigeration users may find that one 139A will replace two 137A oil separators.

Basic Specifications
  • Filters dirt out of the refrigerant and oil
  • Separates the oil from the refrigerant gas
  • Maximum operating pressure: 130 bar (1885 PSI)
  • Available in two connection size options: 1.5” npt and 2’’ npt (12,7 – 50,8 mm)
  • Minimum overhead clearance: 432 mm

“The 130 Series and particularly the 139A represent a big step forward for our customers in reducing emissions, lifting efficiency and generating major energy savings in a time of tight budgets,“ said Temprite President Thomas J. Schmidt.

“Using the 130 Series components our customers can ensure they have a stable, high-efficiency system. We have the only filter/drier shell designed and built just for transcritical CO2. The large-capacity 139A is perfect for larger refrigeration systems and we’ve made it more cost-effective: Because of its size, one 139A can replace two 137A’s and maintain maximum efficiency” explained James Nonnie, Temprite’s Vice President and lead developer of the 130 Series.
