The orifice tube allows refrigerant to flow to the evaporator in your car’s air conditioning system. Want to stay cool on hot days and prevent expensive repairs? Car Parts 4 Less sells cheap orifice tubes for all makes and models.
Orifice tubes have no moving parts and use a simple yet effective design. The plastic 7cm- long tube covers a brass inner orifice, through which refrigerant flows. An inlet screen is in place to stop the tube clogging up with dirt and debris. When you switch on your air conditioning system, refrigerant flows constantly through the orifice tube. This constant exposure to chemicals and pressure leads to wear and tear. When moisture gets in the system, the tube’s metal components can corrode. Dirt may also clog the tube, which in turn restricts the flow of refrigerant and refrigerant oil. This can lead to the compressor suffering catastrophic failure through a lack of lubrication.
