Default Re: Phase Change project start to finish


Very nice job. What temp is your dischage line (3" from outlet) and your compressor sump running? Also what is your superheat?

I read in your thread that you are using 95/5 solder which is not a good thing. The solder is not an issue but the acid flux is death to refrigeration systems. You should use "Silfos" rods or if you can 45% silver solder. I also wood bleed nitrogen through your system while soldering to eliminate oxidation inside of the system. You have done a commendable job on your project.

I would really like to see your evaporator block design if possible.
