An inquiry about A/C compressors failure

Postby lolo55 » Sat May 23, 2020 2:25 pm

I have a question. When A/C compressor fails, it often spreads dangerous metal particles through the system and this leads to a more expensive repair bill. I wonder if installing a filter right after the compressor to catch these solid particles would be a good idea. Making it possible to only replace the failed compressor without the need for replacing other compnents in the system. And does A/C circuits that use drier receiver are more reliable, since a drier receiver will catch solid contaminatns and prevent them from reaching and damaging the compressor.
