AC Water Chiller project (update)
So my last attempt at this using used parts was just not going to turn out...:so i picked up a new 5500 btu Air Con today and tore it down.
Tommorow i will get the cassings and the proper valves
I got the unit down to 16 deg F in about 5 mins without a bath.
More pics here
5500btu man holy crap.
What are you gonna do, loop around the evap on it? How does it exchange heat with the air btw to cool it.. thru a rad or heatsink or filter or what?
More picy's plz :D
I will be placing the evaporator coil into a liquid bath made up of Anti-freez and alcohol into an insulated container.
I will also be adding a 2nd coil that the WC lines run thru to chill the System
So today i managed to get it somewhat functional. I spent 4 hrs driving around the dam planet looking for a container to use...we don't have those nice 12 L Rubbermaid Coolers here that everyone in the USA uses...so i bought a dam acrylic fish tank !!
Also bought the TX Valve, Hot gas valve and new controls.
Got everything functional and down to -5 C
I think thats about as cool as i need to go and its nice and safe on the Compressor based on the type of refrigerant im using.
Here are a few pics...but more are located here
stealin' yo degreez
Sorry, I just had to :)
Nice project Sizer, it's looking really good.:cool:
And thanks for the laugh UNESCO.:D
w.o.w.!:eek: I wish I could see it in person. so many questions..
What's the propane tank for? Does the water tank use some sort of agitator to move the liquid through the cold coils? You say that you run a second coil through the tank which runs to your cooling system-- does this mean that you don't just use the cold solution in the tank to pump through the system?
