How does an expansion valve work?

Whenever the bulb senses an increase in suction line temperature, the liquid expands, increasing the pressure in the fixed volume, and pushes the diaphragm down, thereby opening the valve and allowing more liquid refrigerant into the evaporator.

The process leaves a low pressure liquid directly on the other side of the component. On the other side of the orifice the low pressure liquid flows into the evaporator core.

What is the orifice tube on an AC system?

The orifice tube is a tube with a given length and cross-section which expands the refrigerant but, unlike the expansion valve, it is unable to regulate flow rate and superheating. The orifice tube is always associated with an accumulator at the evaporator outlet.
