i have a R22 rack system with 5 compressors , the problem i am facing is there is a lot of liquid coming back in the compressor and there is a huge ball of ice getting on the compressor winding and in the front , we have almost around 50 evaporators with TXV and i checked the superheat of the evaporators and it is between 11 to 16F , no ice on evaporator , and they are open freezers ISLAND TYPE FREEZERS with no box covers over them , but around a year back we did not had this problem of liquid coming back to the compressors, but started since 4 or 5 month , the freezers are of minus temperature and in every freezer the temperature is -18 to -25 , and i want to ask do you check subcooling on such a big system with so many expansions valves ?

have worked on alot of these little dipping freezers a local ice cream vendors. a few have been a real pain because theyre old hussmans with newer compressors that have AB oil.you figure the previous had mineral oil cause of age. what happens is the high side creeps up and low will head to 0(psi). thinking the two oils arent getting along. so ive replaced the refrigerants withb ones compatible with both oils and success is limited at best. whats a cost effective way to treat this?
