RXB PLUS ROTARY SCREW COMPRESSOR UNITSS70-101 IOMPage 3
This manual has been prepared to acquaint the owner andserviceman with the INSTALLATION, OPERATION, andMAINTENANCE procedures as recommended by Frick forRXB PLUS Rotary Screw Compressor Units.It is most important that these units be properly applied toan adequately controlled refrigeration system. Your autho-rized Frick representative should be consulted for his ex-pert guidance in this determination.Proper performance and continued satisfaction with theseunits is dependent upon:
CORRECT INSTALLATIONPROPER OPERATIONREGULAR, SYSTEMATIC MAINTENANCE
To ensure correct installation and application, the equipmentmust be properly selected and connected to a properly de-signed and installed system. The Engineering plans, pipinglayouts, etc. must be detailed in accordance with the bestpractices and local codes, such as those outlined in ASHRAEliterature.A refrigeration compressor is a VAPOR PUMP. To be certainthat it is not being subjected to liquid refrigerant carryover, itis necessary that refrigerant controls are carefully selectedand in good operating condition; the piping is properly sizedand traps, if necessary, are correctly arranged; the suctionline has an accumulator or slugging protection; that loadsurges are known and provisions made for control; operat-ing cycles and defrosting periods are reasonable; and thathigh side condensers are sized within system and compres-sor design limits.It is recommended that the entering vapor temperature tothe compressor be superheated to 10
F above the refriger-ant saturation temperature. This ensures that all refrigerantat the compressor suction is in the vapor state.
The compressor units are designed for operation within thepressure and temperature limits as shown in Frick Pub.E70-100 SED.
Immediately upon arrival examine all crates, boxes and ex-posed compressor and component surfaces for damage.Unpack all items and check against shipping lists for anypossible shortage. Examine all items for damage in transit.
