We'll be using 3 ton copeland cr38k6-pfv-525 single phase compressor,r22 refrigerant,220v...the evaporator is 10pieces of 9foot by 1 inch diameter copper tube,capillary tube is 5/32" by 10 meters split in two pieces,my technician says making the evaporator into two section would make it cold faster(i would like a comment on this pls)he is using a 5/32"capillary tube... i would like to know if this the right size for this type of setup... btw i'm in the process of learning more on refrigeration so please bear with me if my terms used are not the right way...thank you in advance.
