!

I just drove back into Calgary , I missed the purolator guy by an hour.

I do believe my 1 litre sample of 99% anhydrous ethanol/1% ethyl acetate is here.

If that is indeed what that package is , the future of this project will be decided in the next couple days.

----

assay as follows;

Ethyl alcohol content , v/v% : 99%
Ethyl Acetate content , v/v% : 0.99 %
Water content , v/v% : 0.021 %

-----

Oh yea baby !!

Test apparatus under construction.......It'll be the same p5k-se we used in the initial tests.

-

I have to thank Commercial Alcohols/Greenfield Ethanols (it's someone specific , waiting on publication of name permission.....)

Thanks a lot !


---- more right away

Great news! But before dumping the whole shabang in the sauce, I'd run the board with cpu with air cooling first to confirm it does boot...

Finished reading every post of this worklog early this morning. Definitely a very interesting project to watch evolve over time since you started the project. Looking forward to seeing the results you get with it.

=D

-------

Anywayz , yah better get drivin ! I'm running it in an hour !

Haha....j/k.

I've washed all the components in Isopropanol , they are clean and drying.

Can you make it this weekend ? , I can take sunday off mebbie saturday too...It's not a fancy test or anything , I'll just be putting the mobo into a baking pan or something and seeing if it'll run in that liquid.

Ok.

I have done the test.

Pure ethanol is a bust too :

--

Power goes to the board , the keyboard lights even go on powerup but it wont boot.

So we've learned something finally.Alcohols cannot be used for high frequency electronics submersion.

----

At this point , I have to redo the full materials compatibilty study on basically everything to run thin hydrocarbons(white gas , ether)....I probably have to redo the pump seals at least.....

Not to mention , to run something like diethyl ether , is the next level up on the danger scale.

--

I am examining options for this project.



Thanks a lot to Commercial Alcohols for the sample !!
