Liquid Slugs and high liquid holding in pads
Occasional liquid short time slugs and high liquid loading in pads causing liquid carryover are inevitable. So is the consequent liquid carryover into the compressors. Figs 3, 4 and 5 show what happens when liquid slugs occur. The end result is massive liquid carryover into the compressor and its potential destruction. Hence, spe-
cial care has to be taken to prevent liquid slugs’ entry into the compressors.
