At Frick® by Johnson Controls, we offer surge drum options like single direction or dual direction vapor flow to help keep your system operating safely and smoothly. Our Horizontal Surge Drum is a flooded refrigerant surge drum that serves not only as a liquid reservoir, but also as a liquid vapor separator.
Like all of our pressure vessels at Frick®, we've designed and rated our surge drums specifically for the operating conditions and refrigerant being used in your facility. Features and Benefits
Designed and rated for the specified refrigerant and operating conditions.
May be single direction or dual direction vapor flow.
All nozzle connections are sized according to industry standard criteria based on the refrigerant and specified operating conditions.
Frick® Coolware software allows custom rating of the recirculator with various refrigerants, nozzle sizing based on maximum vessel capacity or specific capacity and modification of the nozzle locations (within limitations).
Vessel and components are abrasively cleaned prior to assembly assuring a clean interior and maximum adhesion of the final exterior paint system.
The finished vessel is pressure tested to assure the integrity of all welds. It is vacuum dehydrated and charged with a 15 psi nitrogen charge for shipment and storage. This procedure minimizes the potential for internal corrosion prior to being placed into service.
