I don't know what to do, I really don't want to buy some clear tubing that will have plasticizer in short amount of time... I wish I could buy Durelene or Primochill Advanced LRT here in Europe.

Its just a matter of time til Primochill Advanced makes it way to Europe.... But how come you cannot order Durelene from the US? I thought Sidewinder Computers ships internationally. Just buy alot of it like I did so you don't have to order again for awhile.

Have you tried to contact Performance-PCs'? I know that they have it. In colors even. thumb.gif

Reason I don't want to buy it from the US is because they're charging me twice of what the actual tubing costs. doh.gif

If I were to do that, Durelene or Advanced LRT from Primochill? rolleyes.gif

Hold out for more info on Primochill's Primoflex Advanced LRT then and see how it turns out with the others trying it out.

As far as costs, are you talking about Total Cost after Shipping (and VAT) or did the sites raise the price on the tubing because you are on Europe?

15ft of Durelene would cost me $13.35 plus $48.50 shipping to Spain via Priority International Mail.

What I think I'll do is wait for stores to sell it in Europe, I've contacted a WC store in Spain which says they'll be in touch with Primochill to see if they can provide me the PrimoFlex Adv. LRT tubing, so meanwhile I'll just buy some Masterkleer PVC clear tubing until they sell the Adv. LRT tubing, I don't see my self paying close to $50 to ship tubing worth $13.

Here's hoping the native shop will get some thumb.gif

Me too, I'll just try out Masterkleer PVC clear tubing in the mean time. smile.gif

Should be OK for at least a month or two, I mean within a month there should be Adv. LRT in Europeans stores already, hopefully. biggrin.gif

Last night was draining my loop to add another GPU and had a chance to look into my 3 months old Feser Blue UV Active. I'm simply amazed, no sign of anything! no whitish residue, no clouding, no anything, it simply looks like new.
I cut out one piece of tubing (needed to shorten it) and looking at it after 24 hours it looks same as new pieces I still have. biggrin.gif

Received also the UV Blue Primochill Advanced LRT, but I will keep it as spare for now. Feser is doing all righty here! thumb.gif

Ok, so here is a photo of what i plan to be testing over the next few months, and a photo of the Feser that i had been testing in a rig:




Top left : (L->R) is Clearflex 60 clear tubing, next to it is Masteecleer clear tubing which is being used as we speak with Mayhem's UV white pastel (im nearly finished with my wifes rig so photos will be posted then-ive been using the Masteecleer for 3 days)


Top right: 17ft of Primochill Advanced-i just got it today, my personal thanks to Primochill for replacing the LRT tubing i had been using before, and for posting the replacement out here to me in Europe-kudos wink.gif .


Bottom left: 6 month+ used Feser UV Clear tubing-i had been running Mayhem's red dye, WFI water (water for injections-its purer than Distilled water, and NOT to be confused with saline solution), 2 drops of Mayhem's extreme (biocide)and a SKC.


There is obvious heavy staining(Red and Pink dyes are the worst for staining), but no heavy 'cream cheese' deposits. I run my rigs 24/7 (i am not exaggerating tongue.gif), and the average temp is between 27-30 celcius (this goes up to 42c max whilst gaming and under load etc).



One final note: the Feser tubing that i had been using was stiffer than the average tubing i had used in the past ie:the Primochill LRT, and now after 6 months it is even stiffer.

The more PVC in tubing the more pliable it is, and it is PVC leeching which is the 'cream cheese' plasticizer build up that we encounter.


Again please refer to this link for more info-you can also read the whole of the recently released study if you have a look on the page ive linked, but it will cost you-it makes things much clearer thumb.gif


http://www.materialsviews.com/barrier-coating-reduces-plasticizer-leaching-from-pvc/


So im taking an educated guess that the new Primochill Advanced tubing has less PVC in it because it is stiffer than the LRT, but i am not 100% sure so DONT quote me on that (Primochill feedback would be helpfull here smile.gif)

I will post photos of used tubing as and when it is available-i plan on running the Primochill in another rig i have running atm.

Hope this has helped a bit.

TO BE UPDATED SOON wink.gif
