What is an ac accumulator?
The a/c accumulator is an air conditioning system component located at the outlet of the evaporator inside the engine compartment in your car. It resembles a metallic can or a tank with some hoses or lines connected to it. Automotive air conditioning accumulators are similar in appearance to a receiver/dryer but are usually larger and they never contain a sight glass.
What an ac accumulator does?
Some ac systems instead of a receiver/dryer use an accumulator for temporarily storing any liquid refrigerant so it does not get into the ac compressor where it can cause damage and for trapping moisture inside the air conditioning system.
What are the main causes of an ac accumulator failure?
The ac accumulator houses a filter screen, a pick up tube a liquid bleed hole and desiccant. A desiccant bag may break and create restrictions on the ac system. The accumulator filters the refrigerant constantly from contamination and if excessive contamination enters the system could create an internal restriction.
