  • Publication number: 20190136989
    Abstract: A flow path switching valve includes a rotatable portion, a packing portion and a valve main body. The valve main body includes: a valve chamber that receives the rotatable portion and the packing portion; an inflow hole; and an outflow hole. The packing portion is configured to be positioned at a predetermined position, at which the packing portion closes an outflow-hole opening end of the outflow hole, in response to rotation of the rotatable portion. When the packing portion is positioned at the predetermined position, the packing portion is urged against a main-body seal portion in a radial direction of a valve axis by a pressure of fluid in the valve chamber, which is higher than a pressure in the outflow hole.
