    Hi guys ...had to replaced a tev today, on a hussmann superplus2 rack.
    the purpose of the valve is for liquid subcooling on a R22 rack
    now here is the numbers readed on the valve..EGPE 1 V2

    P mean r507 ......I never saw V2 for thermostatic charge???

    valve is original from hussmann

    BTW didnt find the valve yet...I double check and it is V2 anyone know what does this V2 charge is equivalent for??
    why r507?

    went to sporlan.com didnt find anything

    broken capillary from power head to bulb (lots of vibration from a 06CC )

    lots of liquid refrigerant flow tru the valve without any pressure comming from the innoperative power head.

    BTW call sporlan today and they said to call hussmann and see what they can do for me ...next step is to remove the valve and bring it to the parts wholesaler, after discussion with hussmann rep.

    I would use a VC or VGA element. It's a subcooler......either of those will work.

    That V2 must be yet another of Hussmann's "innovations".

    Does the word: "OEM" tell you why you cannot locate your parts?



    I'd simply replace the valve withever would carry the load. And that should be determinable.


    Whose that parts guy in Chino? Zak, Tak ... Tak is his name. He's a genius!!!


    Contact Husman in Chino, CA and ask to speak with Tak, if he is still there.


    I'm sure you already know who I'm talking about. He's a fixture with Husman parts.

    In fact, he's the only guy with Husman corp who wasnt full of fertaliser.

    Something's not right here. I'm very familiar with Sporlan's TEV nomenclature (even some of the more exotic stuff), and have never heard or seen a powerhead with a V2 designation. Even a VZ makes little sense. Why put a low temp power head on a med temp application?

    Perhaps its time to envoke the name of Andy Schoen? Andy, are you out there? If Andy doesn't know or can't find out, then nobody can.

    EGPE 1 V2 isn't a valid model number for a Sporlan TEV.

    If you are reading this model number from the half moon label on top of the valve, then there is a problem...

    If you are reading the model number from the stamping near the valve outlet, then you probably have: "EGPE 1/2". To find out the thermostatic charge, you will need to look for it on top of the element. For an R-22 subcooler, I would expect you to find "VC" marked on the element. I suspect you have a valve with a replacement element on it, which will not have the TEV model number on the element.

    thank you Andy ....might be it

    Monday morning i will remove the valve.....will try to get clear picture of it.

    thanks again 1/2 and this 1V2 really look similar

    Something I just did on a valve was to replace the guts only. I did bring the entire valve with me, but only for the guts.
    Sounds like you need a new head, which is easy to do. And replace the guts inside. Also that little orofice screwed into the very end .... deep down inside the valve.

    You replace that and you wont need to subject the system to being so "open" and exposed to atmosphere.
    Plus this repair would consume less time & energy.



    ever since Dave railed so much about replacing TXV's needlessly ... especially in markets... I began to take notice.
    Now, whenever I run into a TX not functioning correctly, I make sure something in the valve itself is the real issue and then I simply replace the least amount of the valve in question.

    I even adjust one of them ... every once in awhile
    (to counter what the guy before me did to the poor system)



    I'm not there with you. I dont know your store. I am not you.
    Yo know what to do....
    Have fun. Markets are one of a kind. Wish I was there.

    Hmm

    Ding!
    Stupid bell and I can't remember what it was-
    ran across another Hussmann fixture (believe twas)
    and had a txv with an 11 ton rating...
    nope- that was some crummy Hussmann oem deal with sporlan
    which put valves out there that you would read as an 11 ton valve ( if you didnt know better). I contacted Sporlan Rep who was able to track down the actual tonnage by days end.
    Whew, disaster averted!
    I will see if I can find the no.s in one of mypocket bookies
    and post them- was a relatively new case, med temp RMN i think..
    Thanks sporlan (other than my local rep- hes not to be criticized here!) for nudging our world just a bit further into the darkness....Hussmann has been pulling for some time that way...another engineering coup.
