Can the customer field modify the length of the Capillary Tube on a 9025 GXW-4?

No. Standard length is 6 Feet. Optional 12 foot for 16 foot lengths must be specified as factory modifications. The capillary and reservoir constitute a contained system filled with liquid. There are different liquids used, specifically related to operating range of the switch. As the temperature in the bulb (reservoir) rises, the liquid evaporates, increeasing the internal pressure on this sealed system. The temperature switch actually acts as a pressure switch, responding to pressure changes n the sealed system. For this reason, the capillary cannot be field modified, cut, or altered.
