What is an AC evaporator?
The AC evaporator is one of the heat exchanger in your car.It resembles the condenser, but is much smaller and usually more difficult to access it inside the hvac case for repairs. They are generally of the tube and fin design.
What an AC evaporator does?
After the expansion valve or orifice tube ,inside the evaporator, the pressure of the refrigerant is allowed to decrease from the high pressure of the liquid refrigerant to a very low pressure. This pressure change inside the evaporator causes the refrigerant to boil, or evaporate. The latent heat of absorption from this state change makes the evaporator cold and allows it to pick up excess heat from the outside air or re-circulated air before it reaches the passenger compartment.
What are the main causes of an evaporator core failure?
-This often happens because leaves or other organic material enter the evaporator case through the exterior air intake vents and come in contact with the evaporator’s surface,this moisture surface and decomposition of organic materials,can form corrosive substances which could eventually damage the evaporator core.
-The evaporator fins are also susceptible to clogging from leaves or hair from pets and other outside road debris.
