A system includes a high side heat exchanger, a flash tank, a vessel, a load, and a compressor. The high side heat exchanger removes heat from a refrigerant. The flash tank stores the refrigerant from the high side heat exchanger. The vessel includes a chamber defined by an exterior housing and a tube positioned within the chamber. Heat is removed from the liquid refrigerant circulating through this tube and coming from the flash tank. The load uses the refrigerant from the tube to remove heat from a space proximate the load. The load sends the refrigerant into the chamber between the exterior housing and the tube. The compressor receives the refrigerant from the chamber between the exterior housing and the tube and compresses the refrigerant.
