    Your wholesaler should also be helpful in helping you select the correct one if you provide them with the information. Don't be shy in asking for catalogs. The Internet is also helpful, sporlan has a good site that can help you. As you probably know, selecting the right one is extremely important.

    How did you arrive at the conclusion the TXV is too small? In my experience, TXV's are the most wrongly accused parts of a refrigeration system.

    that was my first thought!

    and what Pneuma said is true...add charge and d!ck with the TXV are the first thing that everybody does.

    good luck.

    g'day everyone....

    Actually this TXV problem is for control room at oil and gas platform.
    This A/C unit is custom made by manufacturer.

    Superfittertech: - sorry for that wrong info Room area (40ft x 50ft)
    - Control room

    Cool_tech :- the data is

    - Compressor type is Carlyle 06ET265660 (semi-hermetic)
    - R-22
    - Total capacity is 280789 Btu/hr
    - Sensible Capacity is 186931 Btu/hr
    - Cooling coil duty = 154 kW

    Somethings are not adding up.

    So this is a 2000 square foot room?

    Compressor is rated at 23 tons

    Cooiling coil is 154kW X 3414 (BTU per KW) = 525,756 BTU/h or 43 tons

    Do you know how much air you put through the evaporator? Is it 100% outside air or recirculated return air?
