    What temperature are you wanting your brine at?

    .

    We used subcooled R22 was years ago down to +2 degC and
    it was designed to give better quality liquid.

    The problems we had was when the system shut down.
    If you trap extremely subcooled liquid when it warms up it
    expands and split heat exchangers.

    Regards

    on average additional sub cooling of liquid supply to TX Valve will increase TXV capacity 1% for every 2 'C. Example 30 'C additional subcooling will increase TXV capacty by 15%.
