Introduction In the world of heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) systems, thermostatic expansion valves (TXVs) play a critical role in maintaining comfort and energy efficiency. As a key component in the refrigeration cycle, TXVs regulate the flow of refrigerant to the evaporator, ensuring optimal system performance. In this article, we will discuss the function of thermostatic expansion valves, their advantages, and important considerations for selecting and maintaining these valves. What is a Thermostatic Expansion Valve? A thermostatic expansion valve (TXV) is a precision refrigerant control valve designed to regulate the flow of refrigerant into the evaporator in response to the evaporator’s cooling load. By maintaining a constant superheat level […]
