For further information on the use of this dryer with ammonia systems. Maintain vapor-free liquid at the TXV inlet at all times THERMOSTATIC CHARGE 2. allowing for a quicker pull-down of the conditioned space temperature. IL 60155 . R/S has developed the Types D and A thermostatic expansion valves. The nominal 75 and 100 ton Type A valves do not employ a discharge tube since their valve outlets are designed to serve as a secondary orifice to reduce pressure drop across the valve port. and 502 are also incorporated in Parker Refrigerating Specialties (R/S) thermostatic expansion valves for ammonia. This filter dryer is an effective scale trap when used on ammonia systems. refer to page 15 of this bulletin. Refrigerant 717 (Ammonia) Applications Thermostatic expansion valves for ammonia applications require special design considerations due to the erosive effects of ammonia vapor. the Type L charge is recommended. Liquid line vapor is prevented by adequately sizing liquid lines and providing sufficient subcooling. Step 2 can be assured with the use of a Parker Replaceable Core Dryer. With ammonia systems. 3. The R/S type L charge responds more quickly to changes in bulb temperature. The discharge tube is the principle difference between ammonia TXVs and TXVs used 3 Parker Hannifin Corporation Refrigerating Specialties (R/S) Broadview. They have proven their value and acceptance in the industry for more than 65 years. The removable discharge tube is threaded into the outlet of the Type D valves. Cold storage plants often have large centralized ammonia systems consisting of many evaporators connected to one or more large compressors. For this type of application. Refer to page 8 for further information on ammonia distributors. the formation of flash vapor at the expansion valve port causes valve seat erosion or wire drawing to occur. Like other components of ammonia systems. Step 3 can be accomplished with the use of a removable discharge tube or the nozzle of a refrigerant distributor. Z. Therefore. and 50 ton Type A valves. 22. The same features and design principles found in thermostatic expansion valves (TXVs) for Refrigerants – 12. This effect is further aggravated by high velocity ammonia mixed with dirt or scale passing through the port of the expansion valve. If the discharge tube is not removed from the valve. seat erosion can be minimized and valve life extended if the following steps are taken: The Types C and Z thermostatic charges provide operating advantages for systems that cycle in response to a suction pressure switch or thermostat. This makes for fairly stable suction pressures. and the nominal 20. The Type L thermostatic charge is the only charge available for the Type A valve. 30. Thermostatic Charges for Ammonia Valves Thermostatic charges C. consult R/S. The discharge tube in the outlet passage must be removed when the TXV is combined with a R/S Ammonia Distributor and Nozzle. Reduce the velocity of the ammonia through the TXV port by reducing the pressure drop across the port charges are also recommended for systems using a small capacity compressor. for large ammonia systems consisting of multiple evaporators. These 1. Fortunately. The materials used in the manufacture of these valves are listed on pages 4-5. Step 1 can be accomplished through proper system design. Maintain clean ammonia through effective filtration EVAPORATOR TEMPERATURE ° F C 40° to 0° Z 0° to -20° For applications at evaporator temperature below -20°F. These components reduce the velocity and pressure drop at the expansion valve port by introducing a restriction or added pressure drop in the valve outlet passage. the combination of the discharge tube and distributor nozzle may create an excessive pressure drop resulting in a substantial loss of TXV capacity.Thermostatic Expansion Valves Catalog R/S 717 Thermostatic Expansion Valves with other refrigerants.

Figures 2 through 4 are piping schematics only to illustrate possible methods of applying the LMC valves. The bulb must be in contact with the refrigerant. see Figure 2. Installation – Electrical Connections The heater is provided with a two-wire neoprene covered cord two feet in length. the heater is wired in parallel (on the compressor side) with the control or power relay. The insert bulb is installed in the accumulator or surge drum at the point of the desired liquid level. This includes protection against overheating.

And if oil is allowed to concentrate at the insert bulb location of the R/S Level-Master Control. this is not characteristic of flooded systems. however. the drain leg or sump generally has to be warmed prior to attempting to draw off the oil since the trapped oil Insert Bulb of Level Master Element Liquid Line Strainer Oil Drain 18 Parker Hannifin Corporation Refrigerating Specialties (R/S) Broadview. overfeeding with possible floodback can occur. But. Here. a sump with a drain valve is usually provided at the bottom of the chiller shell. If a R/S Level-Master Control is used with the insert bulb installed in a remote chamber. a reduction in the evaporator heat transfer rate can occur due to an increase in the refrigerant film resistance. Mechanical oil separators are used extensively. Generally. The oil drain leg or sump must be located at the lowest point in the low side. This design criterion also prevents the return of any oil from the low side in the normal manner. The lower or liquid balance line must be free of traps and be free draining into the surge drum or chiller as shown in Figure 4.) becomes quite viscous at lower temperatures. Therefore.

The tendency to overfeed is due to the fact that the oil does not convey the heat from the low wattage heater element away from the bulb as rapidly as does pure liquid refrigerant. liquid line. The bulb pressure is higher than normal and the valve remains in the open or partially open position. If oil is not drained from a flooded ammonia system. if the mixture is relatively placid. Here. the liquid leg is extended downward below the point where the liquid is fed off to the evaporator and a drain valve is provided to allow periodic manual draining as shown in Figure 3. The untrapped oil passes through the condenser. we recommend that an externally equalized valve be used. on Shell and Tube Chiller systems equipped with a surge drum. oil concentration at the bulb can cause overfeeding with possible floodback.

Oil Return General – All reciprocating compressors will allow some oil to pass into the discharge line along with the discharge gas. In a properly designed direct expansion system. Difficulty in maintaining the proper liquid level with any type of flooded control can also be expected. the refrigerant velocity in the evaporator tubes and in the suction line is sufficiently high to ensure a continuous return of oil to the compressor crankcase. they are never completely effective.
