RE: Is it possible for refrigerant within a receiver to be subcooled?

Can refrigerant in a receiver be subcooled? If liquid and vapor is present in the receiver at the same time isn’t it at saturation by definition?

It most certainly CAN be subcooled.

 

It won’t be seriously subcooled in all likelihood and it isn’t a reliable subcooling, but it can exist in a subcooled state within the receiver.
