    Sporlan's Y1155 valve is specifically designed for subcooler applications:

    Are you talking about, a expansion valve that is controlled by the liquid temp (a very rare valve), or a expansion used for liquid subcooling

    An excellent choice.

    Really, a TEV is a TEV, the problem is that, in most areas, the load on a subcooler can very pretty widely so unless you're using something like the Y-1155 or an EEV to control the subcooler's superheat, you need to use multiple stages to control it properly.
