What is This?

09/11/2015 8:22 AM

This fell out of a package I purchased yesterday.

Is there anyone out there that can tell me what process it alludes to? What expansion valve attaches via straps?

its like a thermometer the bulb is filled with a gas that expands with temp so as it senses temp it makes the gas in a diaphragm perform work. it pushes against a spring so thre spring has less of an influence on a needle and seat....it throttles

I expect that it is referring to a refrigeration TXV/thermostatic expansion valve bulb.

The TX valve itself is installed in the liquid line, but the bulb that controls it is generally affixed to the outside of the suction line just before the evaporator.

I'm happy for you to elaborate on that rather unspecific statement.

After rather than before the evaporator.

Thank you..My mistake, I was still relating to the valve position.. A bit of elaboration rather than a simple "wrong" is a far more reasonable answer.

What else was in the package? Good chance it relates to that.

Interesting--I wonder if somebody accidentally dropped a CO2 regulator (or part) in there--maybe that's what you have.
