    Automotive Air Conditioning Operating and Maintenance Tips

    As a review, lets put it all together in one place, and once more trace the path of the refrigerant starting at the evaporator outlet. For our example, we'll use an expansion valve type system equipped with a receiver/drier. (The process is similar in an orifice tube/accumulator system.)

    Orifice Tubes and Interior Air Distribution Componentry

    Orifice tubes are used in systems that don't use expansion valves. Like an expansion valve, the orifice tube is used to control the amount of refrigerant entering the evaporator. The diameter of the orifice tube is similarly small to that of the passage inside the expansion valve, but there is one big difference between orifice tubes and expansion valves.

    Automotive Air Conditioning System Components and Operation

    While in years past there were some differences, today, most automotive A/C systems contain 5 major components. These are the evaporator, compressor and condenser, and two other items, either a receiver/drier and expansion valve (also called a thermal, or thermostatic expansion valve, or TXV for short), or an accumulator and orifice tube; which two of these four last items depends on the type of A/C system.
