Description for White Rodgers 96-TD053S


This filter-drier is designed to offer complete protection for your refrigerant system. The 96-TD series removes moisture, acid and foreign materials in order to protect the compressor, solenoid valves, expansion valves, capillary tubes and other close tolerance parts of your refrigeration system.


  • Solid block desiccant core: a composite of molecular sieve and activated alumina
  • Provides high moisture, organic and inorganic acid removal
  • For use with HCFCs, CFCs and the lubricants that go with them
  • Nickel plated SAE flare and solid copper ODF fittings
  • Corrosion resistant paint

The 96-TD liquid line filter-drier may be installed in any position. Best results are achieved when located as close as possible to the inlet of the expansion device. If using a liquid line solenoid or moisture indicator, locate the filter-drier upstream. This will provide protection to the solenoid valve and allow the moisture indicator to measure the drier effectiveness. Install the drier in as cold a location as possible in the direction of the flow arrow on the unit.

Given the proper liquid line size and connection type, the correct drier may be selected using the chart in the "Product Information/Specifications" document below. Choosing a unit size with sufficient water capacity to reduce moisture content of the system to a safe level should be considered.

    what is the flow capacity
    Asked on 2/14/2014 by floyd from United States

    1 answer



      the flow capacity depends on the type of refrigerant: Flow Capacity in Tons Refrigerant
      @ psi
      R134a= 4.1
      R-404A/R50 =2.9

      Tons @ 1 psi ▲P

      R-34a=4.4, R-22=4.8, R-404A/R507 =3.2

      Answered on 6/20/2013 by PexSupply Staff from NY


      I am not HVAC professional, but I DIY professional. I do not believe the
      filters are rated on a per ton basis like the air handler and compressor
      units. Instead they are rated by pressure flow. For example I have used a
      filter like this on a 4 ton heat pump system. The bi-flow filter I am
      using (not the one here) is rated at 680 psi (yes, that's like psi in your
      tires... ) ... The filter you choose will depend on the type of refrigerant
      in your system. The tons is a measurement of the volume of air that the
      system can process in a certain time frame.
      So to sum up some of that technical info ask yourself these questions when
      selecting your filter:
      What type of refrigerent are you using? (If it is R-22 compatible or R-410
      compatible are most common in residential. You probably will not find
      other refrigerents. R-22 is a low pressure gas <300psi and R-410 is a
      higher pressure gas <550psi).
      The second most important question I believe would be: are you using a heat
      pump system? If you are like I am you need your filter to be BI
      DIRECTIONAL or BI FLOW. This means that when the compressor pump reverses
      in the winter time the gases will be pushed through in the opposite
      direction of air conditioning mode.
      I hope this can help you in your selection. Remember I am not an HVAC
      professional but have installed my own system successfully over a two year
      period through research and DIY instruction.
