Building a chiller, MPC655 going to cut it?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I'm currently in the process of converting a portable aircon unit into a chiller and just wonder if an MCP655 is going to get the job done as a pump.

The idea will be to have the pump drawing from one side of the tank, and the loop to return to the other side in an effort to somewhat circulate the water around the evap.

Is this going to work or am I going to have to look at bigger pumps?

Thanks in advance.

EDIT: How about the MCP655 to feed the liquid to the block and a small submersible pump to circulate water in the tank?

Really depends on the size of the evap, any chance of some pics of what you're planning?


I don't really see an issue with using that pump unless it's huge, but I don't completely follow how you plan to get the loop set up, pics would help a lot lol.

I don't have any photos of it because it's all in the early building phase, but I do have a crude drawing that will hopefully shed some light on what I'm trying to do.

I have no doubt that the MCP655 will be able to pump the water into the block and back again with no problems, I'm just wondering if I should go a second submerged pump to keep the water in the tub circulating around the evap?

Haha, yes we are. The days of air and the hope of a cold night shall soon be gone.

Oh yea, that'll be fine.

biggest issue will be the height gain, just make sure you're not going from ground to first floor or something ^-^

For the 2nd question. I think you should evaluate the flow to see if the tub full of water has enough movement from the output. If not then a small sub pump would do the job well.

I will be following you to see some progress and maybe a few pics! I personally have a laboratory chiller sitting in my closet that I hope to do something with someday!
