The Freon-114 recovery system compresses the air/Freon-114 mix from the output "chiminey" of the Cerenkov gas system at room temperature. The two components are phase separated on the output, the Freon-114 is liquid, the air is gas. A holding tank stores the liquid Freon-114 at 20 psia, and the compressed air bubbles through the liquid and is expelled through a back-pressure regulator on the output side of the holding tank.
A "Capsuhelic" pressure meter senses the pressure difference between the top of the tank and the bottom of the tank, thus providing information regarding how much Freon-114 is in the tank. When the tank is full, it can be emptied directly into a gas bottle. This bottle can be used directly if the purity is sufficiently high, or it can be sent back to some manufacturer to be purified.
