The expansion is an active control element that meters refrigerant according to the heat load in order to maintain a given superheat. Superheat is simply the amount of extra heat added to the refrigerant in the evaporator after it has boiled. The reason one wants superheat is that it is most desirable to have the entire refrigerant evaporate in the evaporator. Any liquid refrigerant that an escape the evaporator is wasted as far as cooling is concerned. The proportioning has a thermal bulb that measures the evaporator outlet temperature. The force generated by the thermal bulb is balanced across a diaphragm by the pressure in the evaporator and by a spring which supplies the superheat bias. The safety functions such that at a given temperature, the opens to admit more refrigerant as the pressure drops. The body closes to restrict the refrigerant as the temperature drops. The relationship between the temperature and the vapor pressure of the refrigerant is non-linear so the way to enable the to maintain the superheat constant over the whole temperature range of interest is to fill the thermal bulb with the refrigerant of interest. A safety is an automatic mechanism for the release of a gas from a boiler or other system when the pressure or temperature exceeds preset limits. They are often called by more specific names such as pressure relief s and temperature and pressure relief s. Safety s and the actuators were first used on steam boilers during the industrial revolution. Early boilers without them were prone to accidental explosion when the operator allowed the pressure to become too high, either deliberately or through incompetence. They are required on water heaters, where they prevent disaster in certain configurations in the event a thermostat should fail. There are still occasional, spectacular failures of older water heaters that lack this equipment. Houses can be leveled by the force of the blast.
