Default Adjustable Liquid Chiller by NoL



Hey all, felt like posting up something I'll be tuning in later this week or weekend, some of you might like the idea, and feel free to work with it :)

Specs:
Hitachi 8,400 btu Compresor
One of my Condensers
Two 120mm Fans
CPEV (0 to 55 psi)
Homemade receiver
10 Plate Heat exchanger
Sightglass
Filter/drier

So you guessed it, I have a box of ten CPEV's, at least 10 condensers, and about 10 plate hx, seeing that they aren't moving very far I want to make a bunch of adjustable chillers.
Pics are at this point, already now cleaned it up today (not as in pics, all shiney now), and insulated (now a bit darker).

Whatcha think?

Nice stuff!

What do you mean by adjustable? I'm thinking you can adjust temperatures on the fly, but I just want to be sure.

Also, I wouldn't mind you posting my unit with all the specs.

The CPEV allows me or the user to adjust the low side pressure, thus changing the boiling point of the refrigerant and unit capacity. So yes, can adjust temperatures on the fly :) Your unit log will be up this week dun worry ;)
