Orifice tubes are used in systems that don't use expansion valves. Like an expansion valve, the orifice tube is used to meter or control the amount of refrigerant entering the evaporator. The diameter of the orifice tube is similarly small to that of the passage inside the expansion valve, but there is one big difference between orifice tubes and expansion valves. An orifice tube is a simple fixed device with no moving parts. It cannot vary the amount of refrigerant flowing into the evaporator the way an expansion valve can. So in systems that use orifice tubes, some additional method of refrigerant flow control must be employed. Two of the most popular methods used to do this are turning the compressor on and off at appropriate times, or cycling it, or installing a valve inside the compressor that can actually cause an adjustment to the pumping capacity of the compressor. This, of course, regulates the amount of refrigerant leaving the compressor.

In the systems that use them, the orifice tube servers as a dividing line between the high and low pressure sections of the sytem.
