    Discharge Superheat

    Discharge superheat is one of those measurements that does not get much attention at least in my neck of the woods. Can somebody explain what it means when it is high or low and why it is important and also is there a typical range that discharge superheat should be at.

    As the suction Super Heat goes up so does the discharge temperature.

    Keep the suctionSuper Heat between 20 - 40 and it should be fine!

    It's well over 100 pages long someone here will most likely dig it up for you.

    Googs has tons of info too.
    John Tomczak can explain it well.
    You should know about it and measure it. IMO.

    Reading through the end of that thread where bunny saves the day got me thinking. He’s mysteriously popped in on threads with excellent informative posts.

    We really should start a sticky “bunny archives”

    A little clarity here,ok. Are you talking "discharge line SuperHeat" or "discharge line Temperature"?
