Title: VALVE FOR CONTROLLING A FLUID FLOW
Abstract:
The invention relates to a valve (1), in particular an expansion valve, for controlling a fluid flow, having a valve housing (10) with a first, a second, and a third opening (12, 14, 16) and having a valve means (20) with a first recess (30) which is rotatably arranged within the valve housing (10). Depending on the position of the recess (30), in particular the rotational position of the valve means (20), with respect to the openings (12, 14, 16), a fluid flow through the first, the second, and/or the third opening (12, 14, 16) can be released and modified by changing the position of the valve means (20). The valve means (20) has a bypass, wherein depending on the position of the bypass, in particular the rotational position of the valve means (20), with respect to the openings (12, 14, 16), a fluid flow between the openings (12, 14, 16) through the bypass (32) can be released and modified by changing the position of the valve means (20).
