some are installed by the factory. Scroll compressors typically dont need them where as recip compressors needed them when a txv was in the circuit.
What's the diff between scroll and recip. compressor??
Thanx for the help...
Scroll compressor on left, recip on right.

They cost quite a few dollaros $$ so they don't put them on anymore but have them as a add on option. If the unit is to be used in low ambient temp conditions around 50 deg F (usually in a commercial app) then the oil is thicker and one may be required.
