Ingersoll Rand OEM 39441944 170F Thermal Valve Cartridge
The Ingersoll Rand 39441944 thermal valve actuator opens to allow oil to flow through the cooler when the temperature is above 170F. This prevents the compressor from overheating. This valve was commonly used on the 20-30HP Ingersoll Rand rotary screw compressors that start with serial number JX and we're manufactured in late 1990s/early 2000s
Typically if your compressor is shutting down on a high temperature, the thermal valve needs to be replaced. It's common for this valve to be replaced every 2-3 years depending on run hours and operating conditions.
This is an OEM thermal valve made from Ingersoll Rand
