Plasticizer Problems / Discussion / Gallery - Page 162

post #1611 of 3087
Already have compression fittings but I decided to run the primochill for 2 weeks before changing it to duralene. Hope I get lucky and it doesn't cake up too bad.

1 week now with Feser Acid Green UV tubing and Mayhems X1 UV Green concentrate with no signs of Plasticizer.

I will report back next week since i need to drain my tube res so i can add a fitting 2 it.

just got this tubing on PPC's Masterkleer PVC Black
Hopefully it wont build up gunk like the primochill stuff. At least I have some spare tubing to fill the loop up...
post #1614 of 3087
has onyone had a problem with build up running jusy coolant along and nothing else?
post #1615 of 3087
I Just got :


2m of Clearflex 60 3\8" ID - 1\2" OD (10-13mm) clear tubing,

2m of Masteekleer 7\16" ID - 5\8" OD (11-16mm) clear tubing

1 ltr of Mayhem's Pastel White UV

and a bunch of BP silver rotary fittings (very sweet deal c/o Hellfire toyz-great guy is Eric, i would recommend them unreservedly for watercooling gear)


In the photo , one can clearly see the yellowish tinge of the Masteekleer tubing, whilst the Clearflex 60 is much clearer.


I ordered both types of tubing because:

1) Mick over @ Mayhem's suggested they are good for use with pastel coolants,

2)Im currently running 13/10 tubing, and i may change up to 11/16 tubing.

Anyway, when i do swap out the Feser that im using atm without SKC-just 2 drops Mayhems Biocide-(my last photos were Feser tubing with a SKC & Biocide), ill post photos of the Feser and see how it fared up to life without a SKC.

(ive included 2 photos because the because the Masteekleer looks slightly different in each photo-you guys be the judge thumb.gif )

Much cheaper than tygon and primochill, but very stiff to work with. I`ll report in few weeks that how bad is plasticizer with these tubes, if there is any

After 3 weeks, there is no signs of plasticizer, so things are looking good so far, but its only 3 weeks, so i`ll check back in couple of weeks

I checked the database I haven't seen anyone report issues with Koolance's tube. It might just be the same stuff as others but I'm curious if anyone has any info or experience? I need to buy an o-ring from them (no one else has this one) so I wouldn't mind placing a small order for some clear tube.

I also thought about getting tube from the local hardware store but they don't have my size frown.gif.

I thought I updated for my loop... guess not.

Changed out 6 of my fittings a couple days ago and found that yes indeed that I have plasticizer issues with my new(6mo old) tubing.





I only changed the fittings not the tubing. Soon as I can this caca is out of my loop for good. mellowsmiley.gif

As most of you know I don't run Killcoil or Additives in my loop. It's a 24/7 system(Fold @ Home) so the likelihood my system having any growth is minimal at best considering that I do change my coolant every 3 months or so.

Well anyway here are some pics of the white stuff that I found on my Black Nickel Compression fittings. It wiped right off when I scratched at it and it hasn't harmed anything but PrimoChill indeed has a problem...




I woulda taken pics of the tubing but it's impossible to hold the section I replaced open and take a pic with my webcam. rolleyes.gif

So no I can confirm for everyone here that my theory is Invalid. PrimoChill is fail. thumbsdownsmileyanim.gif

Yeah, although it would be nice (for PrimoChill especially) if there were simply some magic combination of metals or additives that could be avoided - but I think it is obvious that platicizer will leech no matter what - and the more of it used, the worse it will be. I've been examining a few different lengths which I guess I will be using for some experiments (since I won't be using it in my rig) to see what effects heat has - but since people were already seeing it with just DI water after a couple of days... I don't see how there could ever be a magic formula for the current batches of Primo.

Any idea when their "advanced" tubing is coming out? I've been running blue primochill for just a few days and it's already starting to look a little hazy in some sections. I don't understand how PVC tubing is so hard to get right.
