Air conditioning filter driers, receiver driers, accumulators are basically canisters used to filter debris and remove moisture to protect the air conditioning system. AC Delco, Motorcraft and MEI Airsource offer various inlet and outlet fitting types and sizes of air conditioning driers are used in today's vehicles. Many air conditioning driers also have air conditioning system protection devices, moisture indicators, charge ports, sight-glass, fuse plugs, high pressure relief valves and assorted mounting brackets depending on the requirements from the original air conditioning driers equipment manufacturer.
Air conditioning Accumulators are similar to that of the receiver drier. It is usually mounted on the low side, at the outlet of the evaporator. The air conditioning accumulator "accumulates" or stores excess air conditioning refrigerant, filters moisture and dries the refrigerant. Air conditioning accumulators are used on CCOT (Cycling Clutch Orifice Tube) or FFOT (Ford Fixed Orifice Tube) air conditioning systems. These air conditioning systems use a orifice tube instead of an air conditioning expansion valve to control refrigerant flow. AC Delco, Motorcraft and MEI Airsource offer the best air conditioning driers and accumulators that money can buy.
