1 minuteread

We all love the ultimate chill blasting from the car’s vents, especially after we need to survive In the hot and humid climate. When the car AC is turned on and it emits cool and refreshing air, the entire traveling becomes easy and relish. However, believe it or not, no car comes with a fridge that’s filled with multiple ice cubes. The cold air that we get from the AC vents is converted from the hot air. The hot air needs to undergo multiple steps to convert into cool and fresh air.

The Thermodynamic process is involved here and that’s what maintains the temperature inside your car room. Here, the pressure is involved and it causes changes inside temperature. You just should turn the AC on and also the compressor will do the further work. However, it’s not that straightforward as it looks.

Common forms of Car AC systems


1. Orifice Tube and Accumulator System:

The Orifice Tube and Accumulator system comes with the orifice tube. The Orifice Tube controls the refrigerant flow and controls the low-pressure mist before entering the evaporator. Whereas, accumulator holds the refrigerant and removes moisture from it to manage the damage.


2. Expansion Valve and Receiver-drier System:

The Expansion valve and receiver-drier system include an expansion valve before the evaporator core and receiver-drier between the condenser and in-line filter kit. The desiccant during this system absorbs the moisture. It works just like the accumulator, but it’s located on the high-pressure side instead of the low-pressure side. The expansion valve works identical in both systems and restricts refrigerant flow to convert the liquid into the low-pressure mist.
