Scope:

This SAE Standard establishes the test conditions and reporting method for quantifying refrigerant circuit oil circulation rate (OCR) reduction effectiveness of mobile air conditioning compressors using R-134a and R-1234yf refrigerants that include oil separators and/or other design features for the purpose of reducing the OCR in the refrigerant circuit.

Rationale:

It is well recognized that reducing the amount of oil circulating through the refrigerant circuit of a mobile air conditioning system will generally improve the system energy efficiency, as expressed by coefficient of performance (COP). This document establishes a standardized test procedure for quantifying oil circulation reduction effectiveness of compressors with oil separators and/or other means of reducing oil circulation through the refrigerant circuit of a mobile air conditioning system using R-134a or R-1234yf refrigerant.
