    I can't find anything like that number on Emerson's (Alco) site.

    But why not just pick a different TEV to suit your application, conditions and capacity?

    That sounds like it's a constant pressure expansion valve I found the A series valves in the johnstone catalog # 198 pg 1286. Or here's a link http://www.johnstonesupply.com/corp/...t_Code=B12-512 I'll bet they could help ya out.

    LOL yes they will do that sometimes. But I've had good luck with them for the most part. BTW ya cant use to much heat when ya burn one in or it will leak every time.
