Adam Chapman from Westermeyer Industries two main tips you need to watch out for are:

1. Verify your sizing! Any type of oil separator has a min/max discharge CFM rating (DCFM). Proper oil separation is all based on proper mass flow. To size an oil separator properly for basic refrigeration systems, you’ll need to know your refrigerant, saturated suction temperature (SST), saturated condensing temperature (SCT), and your BTU load.

2. Keep your oil management system clean. Monitor your pressure drop across your coalescing oil separators and/or inline oil filters. Make sure you are cleaning your oil floats if it is a low-pressure oil system. Properly maintained systems are going to provide long-term reliability. A clean oil management system is an effective system!
