Refrigerant Circuit with Restrictor and Reservoir
 

     
Component Aggregate state of refrigerant Pressure bar (psi) positive pressure Temperature in degrees Celsius (Fahrenheit)
-1- A/C compressor B-side Gas up to 20 (290 psi) up to 70 (158)
-2- Condenser From gas to vapor to fluid up to 20 (290 psi) up to 70 (158)
-3- Restrictor From fluid to vapor B-side to 20 (290 psi), A-side greater than 1.5 (21.8 psi) B-side up to 60 (140 psi), A-side warmer than -4 (25)
-4- Evaporator From vapor to gas Greater than 1.5 (21.8 psi) Warmer than -4 (25)
-5- Reservoir Gas    
-6- A/C compressor A-side Gas    
 
Pressures on A-side are maintained at approximately 2 bar (29 psi) by “regulating” A/C compressor also at various engine speeds. However, this applies only within the performance range of the A/C compressor; if the performance limits of the A/C compressor are exceeded. Refer to → Chapter „Pressures, Checking“.
  Note
In vehicles with A/C Compressor Regulator Valve -N280-, the pressure is modified on the low pressure side by the valve.

Wear Spots
Wear spots are caused by a hard stop with locked wheels whereby the rubber compound is abraded from the contact patch. When the tires slide across the road surface, frictional heat is generated which reduces the abrasion resistance on the ...
