Default Re: Fairly Large Project: Oil+TEC Tank PC

I've been able to scrounge up a larger pump. I haven't any idea of the spec but it can shoot a column of water 0.5 inches wide about a foot up at full power. It was used in a medical device a relative needed that pumped ice water through a pad that strapped around the shoulder. I'm thinking it'll be much better suited to push the thicker oil through the many feet of tubing I have than the Swiftech MCP350 I'm testing now. I've since cut down all of it's useless mounting hardware so it will fit within the reservoir properly. I'm not exactly sure how long it will last either. It is "medical grade" but to me it looks like the dc motor from a power-wheels car in a pretty white case. I've got to figure out what I need to adapt it down to the sized of tubing I'm using. Maybe, with the higher flow rate it's got, I won't have to make new blocks for the TECs.
