  • Risk of environmental and property damage
  • Coil and secure excess capillary tubing away from contact with sharp or abrasive objects or surfaces. Vibration or sharp or abrasive objects in contact with capillary tubes can cause damage that may result in loss of element charge, which may result in damage to the environment or property.
  • Risk of environmental and property damage
  • Avoid sharp bends in the capillary tubes. Sharp bends can weaken or kink capillary tubes, which may result in refrigerant leaks or restrictions of flow.

Flush water lines to clear any foreign matter that may interfere with valve operation. Mount valves vertically on the inlet side of the condenser with the spring housing up. If it is necessary to keep the condenser flooded with coolant, you can mount the valve on the outlet side. When mounting the valve in a position other than vertical, follow the instructions of the equipment in which you plan to install the valve. Make the refrigerant head pressure connection to the bellows. If you need additional capillary tubing, use 1/4 in. O.D. tubing or larger.
