Re: 1987 jeep Cherokee ac, what is this valve in the suction tube

It looks like a check valve. Ironically, I also have an '87 that I have to have all new hoses made. I do not recall that being part of the original hose. The expansion valve is the only metering device that is necessary that I am aware of. Most systems' liquid and vapor sides of the compressor equalize after the system is off, so I can't think of any reason.
