SoG's Custom Power House
 
Hey only water and air now so figured I'd post it here.
Recently just finished up a build for SoG, or Shade of Grey on OCF forums, the unit is tuned for a high loading quad, and features a 1/3hp Embraco FFI12HBX, 120mm condenser, set of panaflos, and chilly1 evaporator with a home made suction accumulator for increased volume and subcooling.

Onto the pics!
More pics when the braids on (waiting for more black to arrive), and bolted up in the case :) Temps are at 250W of load as shown, and is running with a new Zeotropic blend of refrigerants.

Looks good adam, how does this home made suction accumulator work?

Its a simple area of extra volume, the increase in volume according to basic gas flow laws results in a slowdown at a continuous mass flow. Therefore the speed drops and its less likely to make it up against gravity. Failing to make it up it expands easier in this larger volume and results in less chance of liquid getting to the compressor. Instead you get cold gas flow, which helps compressor actually :)
