(1) You must make sure condensers are designed:
(a) For at least 250 psig; and
(b) To manually or automatically purge noncondensibles.
Condensers may be cooled by any of the following:
1. Air;
2. Water;
3. Air and water.
(2) You must make sure compressors used for refrigerating ammonia meet all of the following:

(c) Have an oil separator on the discharge side, where necessary to prevent contamination.
(d) Have a drainable liquid trap or other adequate method on the compressor suction to minimize the entry of liquids into the compressor.
