    Thanks Eng Dave for info

    It looks as though the float on the seperator is hanging up and not allowing the oil to go to the oil receiver. Quoted customer new float assembly,henry oil level control for compressors and oil safety that did not trip on low pressure. Confirmed safety is wired correctly but,is bad. Compressor that is still running tripped on low oil overnight. Not getting oil from receiver. BECAUSE THERE IS NONE!. Added oil to receiver to get unit running. Told and documented to customer that work needs done and unit will fail. They have not approved work. Anyone in need of previousley frozen food? Waiting for the Saturday /Sunday call of high temp.

    Is it a helical separator or a conventional "impingement" type separator?

    If it is a conventional type, you might want to look inside and see if the screen inside is ruptured.
