An accumulator is very comparable in purpose to a receiver/dryer. It serves similar, but slightly different functions. An accumulator is also a metal cylinder, but differs from a receiver/dryer in these three ways:

1. An accumulator is considerably larger than a receiver/dryer, usually around twice the volume.

2. The accumulator is connected to the evaporator outlet, in the low pressure section of the system.

3. The accumulator's primary function is to store any liquid refrigerant exiting the evaporator, to prevent it from reaching the compressor. If liquid refrigerant were to enter the compressor, it could cause damage, as the compressor is not designed to pump liquid, only vapor. Accumulators are only used on systems that contain orifice tubes. It is a characteristic of orifice tube systems to have, under certain operating conditions, large amounts of liquid refrigerant leaving the evaporator. In other words, not all of the refrigerant turned into a vapor while it was passing through the evaporator. The accumulator, like the receiver/dryer, also serves as a temporary storage countainer for oil when not needed by the system.

Like receiver/dryers, accumulators also contain the system desiccant, so the same "rules of replacement" apply.

Auto Windshield Repair using OEM vs Non-OEM Glass
There are two types of auto glass: OEM glass (Original Equipment Manufacturer) and non-OEM glass, or what many people refer to as aftermarket glass. There are significant quality differences between original equipment manufactured windshields and aftermarket auto glass. So why then, would anyone go to a shop that uses aftermarket glass when they need to replace their windshield (especially considering that a car’s windshield acts as one of its most important safety features during an accident, rollover or collision)?
