SMART VOV - High Performance Orifice Tubes

Now your customers can have:

  • 5° - 12°F colder air (at hot idle)
  • Reduced compressor load and extended compressor life
  • Improved performance when converting from R-12 to R-134a
  • Improved city fuel economy & emissions
  • Improved performance in factory R134a systems


How it works


The Smart VOV (variable orifice valve) uses system pressure and refrigerant flow to move a metering piston relative to a fixed opening in the sleeve. The piston movement is resisted by an attached spring.

When idling at high ambient temperatures, the piston shifts to a smaller metering area similar to a TXV. This compensates for the reduced compressor output and increases the cooling performance. The Smart VOV also has a unique re-open feature which reduces compressor pressure for severe idle conditions.

At highway speeds, the Smart VOV operates on a large orifice. The net result is better performance than a TXV without the complexity or reliability concerns.

Unlike a TXV, which has constantly moving parts and small internal clearances, the Smart VOV is stationary during most operating conditions and has large internal clearances. Its low friction floating design insures smooth operation and extremely long life.
