Usually connected to an expansion valve or thermostatic switch; a hollow tube filled with a refrigerant to gauge or measure a remote temperature. The changes in temperature cause the refrigerant to expand or contract. That helps regulate or operate the valve or switch.
a tube of small internal diameter; holds liquid by capillary action
