In typical refrigerating systems, an expansion valve is the device to meter the flow of refrigerant. The capillary tube possesses certain advantages over the expansion valve, resulting in a considerable saving in manufacturing cost. The capillary is not rated in conventional terms, however, and as a consequence a cut-and-try process of design has been used. The object of this thesis is a study of the flow process in the capillary tube, to permit a more straightforward approach to the design problem.
