You would be right that the line temp would be higher.

this is what I am trying to say, that the gauges don't tell you the temperature, they give the given temp. of the refrigerant when it changes state,(from liquid to vapor or vise versa) at a given pressure. Am I correct in saying it is the boiling point of the refrigerant at a given temp.
It is the temp at which it will change state either from a lquid to vapor, or vise versa. Depending if your reading saturated vapor or liquid.
Example.. suction pressure on r22 at 55psi would mean about 30 or 32 temp the refrigerant will begin to boil. Which is not saying the refrigerant is 32 degrees. And this is my agrument with him, when I was charging a unit he said the refregerant in the suction line where my gauge is reading 55 the r22 in that line is 32 degrees. Which I believe is wrong. The actual temp. of the line say is 42 - 32 equal 10 degrees of superheat. It is 10 above the saturation point at this pressure. I believe this is a fundemental law of Physics. Now either I am wrong or he is..
