    What is the purpose of having the capillary tube soldered to the suction line.



    Does it subcool the liquid refergerant, prevent slugging or it to relieve stress on the cap tube. Ive wanted to know for a while

    Capillary tubes either run inside the suction or are brazed
    to the suction for a few reasons, some of which you mentioned.

    The capillary is quite fragile so by attaching it to the suction
    it gives it extra strength and support it also helps with the heat
    exchange as you said, between the two pipes. It does not
    subcool the liquid because the restriction of the capillary is already
    reducing the pressure throughout its length but the heat exchange
    is helping increase the temperature of the vapour in the suction pipe.

    Regards
