Plasticizer Problems / Discussion / Gallery - Page 146

post #1451 of 3087
Ive spoken to primochill rep tonight and hes said that the pastel hasn't changed in colour on there tubes. so im gonna ask if we could maybe get a sample some time and check for our self. I know we did see the same on the older tubing how ever its pretty hard to track down who has the latests versions and who has old stock. The problem with all of this is there is so many different types of equipment from loads of different rads, lots of different blocks all of them incorporating different techniques in manufacturing. Then you have users on top of that, did they rise there systems properly, have they used some corrosive substance and not cleaned it out afterwards ect Its one total minefield.

It got to a point were i just stopped testing tubing as there are just to many variables to take into account that is was a total micky take and would be impossible to really find out what is causing the issues.

I also suspected that silver kill coil screwed up my primochill tubing much faster than normally it would go bad on its own ... anyways now running feser uv blue tubing with distilled water and a coil and so far it's been crystal clear for 3 weeks.

Am I wrong in assuming this is the point at where the plasticizer starts to leach from the tubing? mellowsmiley.gif

Whilst i MAY admit to silver causing galvanizing in certain loops when mixed with different metals-the only variable, inc usage/temps etc in my system was the tubing-the old feser tubing i had in a box (ordered but never used) was meant to be used as an interim solution till my Durelene arrived-as i said before, Durelene arrived, Feser still crystal clear after 2 months +. Durelene takes Feser's place in storage until needed biggrin.gif

So the Primochill tubing was the weak link-as i said, the only change was the tubing, and the Feser has remained clear, whilst two different types of Primochill that i previously used clouded etc, in less than 2 months.

That having been said, when the new Primochill tubing comes out, i will get some and test it-if its substandard, i shall shoot it down, if it works well, i will sing its praises-no witch hunts here, just after good quality products.

I shall also order that cheap tubing that mick suggested and use it with his X1 or Pastel coolant(haven't decided which one as yet)-just to see whats what.

My Primochill PrimoFlex Pro LRT don't look like a week link to me smile.gif still looks the same after months also:

I did have Problems once with many different brand tubing including Primochill till i realized it was user error on my own part.I was using distilled with biocide containing copper sulphate. Since i stopped never another issue and i only use PrimoFlex Pro LRT™ Tubing in all my builds past to present. So 1 time i made a mistake and besides that the stuff has been the best i found.You will aslo it see the same tubing used in my future 2 builds that will be completed shorty.

My suggestion is if your having problems go over your whole loop and find the cause because i don't care what tubing you use you can have the same issue or get lucky and have the right combination and have no issues at all. Out of many many builds i have done i have only had 1 issue with tubing and it had nothing to do with a brand tubing.

I know this thread will just keep lopping over and over with just blame thrown here and there at different manufacturer of the month but honestly its time to find the problem in your own specific loops and ignore all this. I did and finally success after wasting months reading this thread and getting no where.

Just my opinion wish you guys the best of luck. But if you have an issue with your loop don't just keep buying every brand tubing to try and mask the problem. Its not going to go away that way .You have to find the specific issue with your own loop because they are all different and anything can cause it.

just because you have a fancy build doesn't make your observation legitimate. tubing is obviously the issue on many of these builds, especially some that i have seen that have all-copper components.

here is a pic of my Cpu loop res. cleaned the tubing 1 month ago. Primochill black. This loop is Distilled and 1 kill coil.




Here is my Gpu loop res with one month of use. Distilled only. Primochill black. has not been cleaned. So by this, Using a killcoil or not had no affect either way.. its still Leaching.

Just picked up the ingredients that Ceadderman suggested so i can clean the Plasticizer out of my Swift maelstrom res -

I flushed the res a few times but unless i open the res which i can't there is no way to get this crap out. I emailed Swifttech about replacing the plexi housing so hopefully they can make that happen.
