How the reciever drier works
Air conditioning systems utilize a Receiver-Drier to extract moisture from the system. The Receiver-Drier is used on A/C systems which make use of an Expansion Valve to control refrigerant flow and is located on the high-pressure side of the system, between the A/C Compressor and the Condenser. The Receiver-Drier stores a portion of the system's refrigerant and contains a desiccant bag (moisture absorbing substance) to remove any moisture the system may become contaminated with. Sometimes the Receiver-Drier also has a pressure relief or pressure switch. An improperly performed service can allow moisture (or other contaminants) to enter what should normally be a closed moisture-free environment - reducing efficiency and causing accelerated wear-and-tear on A/C system components.
As is the case with all other AC Components, the Receiver Drier must be in operable condition for the AC System to function properly.
Regardless of where you reside in the North Bay area, ensure your vehicle's air conditioning system operates properly when you need it most by having air conditioning service performed by friendly ASE Certified technicians at Tristar Automotive.
