It's true.It's a costly venture , but the payoff is tenfold ,just from a "I like to build stuff and play" standpoint , not to mention all the cool stuff I'm learning..I certainly could not have done it without the help of a lotta awesome people.

It is an 'experimental cooling system' , built for purely research , so the cost is really irrelevant....It may not even work....who knows, but lets find out !!
---------

Update time.

The solvent recovery tank is essentially finished.

Input lines siliconed into place :



--------

Output line siliconed , Inner tank shown , de-stickered and cleaned :



-------

Inner tank installed , silicone seals 99% done :



------

I am crossing the solvent recovery tank offa the list.The only things left to do are purely aesthetic.......I need to get the Wildrose lable back on , and I am considering a plastic/rubber 'lip' on the top to cover the tank-to-tank seal at the top.

Functionally , it's done !

------

The main tank has had it's cure time so I'll be working on the next stage of the sealing between the glass.....as well as the insulation work.

I went looking back through this thread to see where your psu and hard drive are gonna live, and I think I found a wee bit of evidence as to what fuels your madness!

Thx man !

I've got the final pic sans lable for yah at the end of this post.

-------

Heh.......calibrated spacers indeed....... ..those two tanks were not square to each other at all......I've removed all the shims , it looks good , close as I could get probably.

-------

@ death hawk :

Yea , all these kegs etc. carry a lable like that....The one yer looking at I bought from Wildrose breweries here in Calgary......the inner tank I got from a metal recycler...pepsi has the lable on that one , the big keg I have ( also from the recycler) is from 'Interbrew' (aka Heineken ) .......

--------

@ 3 of 7 ;

Hehe.

I would have thought the construction of all the resevoirs from keg's or half kegs , would have clued you in , but good eye man ! that's a 'Big Rock Grasshopper' beer cap.hehehhe.



---------

I have finished the solvent recovery tank , AKA : 'Dry Ice cooled , fast flow solvent condenser'..........



-----------

Sure !

I'm about 3/4 done the tank to tank seal.....

--------

I really hav'nt done too much recently.....I've spent the last 11 days or so going through the computers I got from a salvage job , seeing what works/building working servers, etc......Buy the time I'm done , i'll have taken a full truckload of crap outta my garage to the recyclers.....I still have 5 rigs to checkout.

-------

I spent the day cleaning my 2 workshops , so I can forget about recycling and get back to fabrication.I've been doing the tank-to-tank seals for the last 2 weeks , I'm almost on coat 2.I'll have pics right away of this.

I'm also sizing/cutting the foam spacers for installation , I should be doing some work on those right away too.

Every time I see an update, I can't help but think about the fuel mileage that the battleship Missouri used to get on a good day. Don't ask me why I'm always reminded of it, after all who wouldn't be happy with getting 6 feet to the gallon. lol

Keep up the good work BrainEater!
