A refrigeration system is provided with a receiver and a plate attached to the mouth of the outlet tube of the receiver to prevent the formation of a liquid refrigerant vortex. The mouth of the receiver outlet tube has an enlarged cross-sectional area to decrease the velocity of the liquid entering the tube. A deflector for vertical receiver applications interrupts refrigerant downward flow from the receiver inlet to prevent bubble formation in the liquid.
[ What is claimed is:] [1.] A receiver to minimize the amount of refrigerant used in a refrigeration system, said receiver comprising:a container having an inlet for receiving refrigerant which is usually partially in liquid form and partially in vapor form;a liquid refrigerant outlet tube extending into the container with an inlet to the tube located adjacent a low point in the container to enable liquid refrigerant to be drawn out of the container; anda device positioned adjacent the tube inlet to prevent a vortex from being formed in the liquid refrig...
