Generally suction driers are installed after a burnout which is when a compressor motor winding shorts resulting in system contamination with a particularly nasty cocktail of contaminates and acids.

I have noticed lots of liquid line driers in the field. If I remember correctly, the liquid line is AFTER the compressor, so what is the point if the goal is to protect the equipment?
Wouldn't it be better to install a suction line drier? Those cost more, though, right?
Aren't these things supposed to be checked for pressure drop after install? I've never seen anyone go back....
