      Comments about ToughOne Expansion Valve:

      Completed air conditioner installation. Prevented freon leakage to cool passenger compartment. After a year of unable to use air conditioner. Needed for hot weather driving in the summertime for next vacation. Now seems to work normal and cools down more comfortable. Used with new tubes and condenser fan. Needed Chevrolet service department to install part while I was working daytime hours on another job. All was then completed the same day and the vehicle was completely inspected.

          Hi Debatsr, I'm glad to assist you! The valve fittings and exterior parts must be thoroughly cleaned before soldering or brazing in order to prevent debris from entering the refrigerant system or valve body. Protect the TEV (Thermostatic Expansion Valve) from heat during soldering or brazing by wrapping the valve body and head with a wet cloth to give 1/4" to 1/2" of thermal protection, and keep the soldering or brazing torch aimed away from the valve itself. As with any soldering or brazing job, don't use excessive solder or flux or the excess may flow into the valve or tubing to prevent proper operation. The thermostatic expansion valve sensing bulb that controls the thermostatic expansion valve is clamped to the refrigerant suction line where it monitors the system's temperature.
