    I dont think that "COOLER THAN NORMAL" Really means cold. For example a 404 system running without noncondensables say at 100 degrees sct (235psi) and an ambient of 80 degrees the liquid line may be...

    Thanks for the info on this topic guys. Ive just always been told that a balanced port txv should be used anytime you have fan cycling. I assumed that this was the reason.

    Balanced-Ported valves

    With a conventional TXV, the pressure differential across the valve results in a force that tends to “open” the valve. As operating conditions vary, this pressure...

    I dont believe the change will be drastic but there will be a change. In the spring and fall when utilizing fan cycling I think these valves would start to hunt due to the fluctuation in head. Hence...

    An ori and ord combo works the same as a headmaster so I would think you would just pull through the ord. Therefor still pulling the condenser.

    Actually tested this out today with a headmaster control and it does pull through the bypass portion of the valve which evacuates discharge line and condenser.

    evacuation

    If you pull from the king valve and suction service valve on a system that has a ori/ord or headmaster, are you still pulling from the condenser and discharge line? I thought it did. am I wrong?
