    Could it work?

    A small fan coil unit. Believed to have a chilled water coil, 3 row, no manifold. Put a txv on the inlet of the coil with no distributer. Could this possibly work, I don't think so.

    It would do something other then explode if it has a high enough pressure rating!

    Best case senario is: meh. The flow through it probably wouldn’t be very turbulent (depending on how much refrigerant you are trying to push through it) so you wouldn’t get the heat transfer you would like. Make sure you evacuate it really well!
    Don't step on my favorite part of the Constitution just to point out your favorite part.

    Political Correctness is forced on you because you have forgotten decency.

    Technically speaking, they are all heat pumps.

    Yes it might work, i converted a chilled.water coil to dx years ago to 22. After blowing al the water out, r11 flush, vacuum, it worked 5 ton unit. Today don't know if it would take 410 but it should since a water coil would or should have the same thickness of tubing running through it.
