Air Conditioning and Heating R-12 All Caterpillar Machines – General Information

The air conditioning system is a closed circuit that uses the refrigerant, which is under pressure, to cool the operator compartment.

  • The five components of the expansion valve system are the compressor, the condenser coil, the receiver-dryer, the expansion valve and the evaporator coil.

  • The six components of the manual orifice tube system are the compressor, the condenser coil, the accumulator, the dryer, the orifice tube and the evaporator coil.
