Plasticizer Problems / Discussion / Gallery - Page 173

post #1721 of 3087
Distilled water + engine coolant + Primochill Utopia (all 3ml), 8 months old PrimoFlex LRT Pro tubing compared with brand new tubing.

As can be seen, no discolouration or plasticizing, etc:

^^^ Probably cause the Anti-Freeze eats the plasticizer. It's in there it's just been absorbed by the Anti-Freeze would be my guess. I would never put that stuff in a loop. 2cents.gif

Its cheaper than you might think.
Im glad my guide helped you,Good luck with your build,if you want any specific help then please PM or post in the pipebending thread

The prices on the benders, cutter, and tubing is fine... and in the long run the fittings are fine too... but considering I just purchased and installed about $200 worth of Bitspower compressions in my system... I'd like to go ahead and use them for awhile. biggrin.gif

Well, if she can get past the fact that you apparently don't ever use your furnace (or at least not enough for her it appears) then I'm sure she's forgiving enough to let a 3-4 day build slide by unnoticed. biggrin.gif

Hahaha actually she's out there and it was 43* (46* here) out in the morning. If she's not running her heat I don't think we got anything ta worry about y'know? Might pack up my rig and take it to her place to give me something to do while she's at work. When she's not at work I think we'll be okay. without the furnace. tongue.gif lol

Besides I doubt it would hurt my tubing anymore to be in a non heated environment. But yeah no I'm not gonna cart a $2500 rig onto the plane and have Homeland flip me guff about it. smile.gif Wish I could though. How cool would that be. thumb.gif lol

First time I've used Durelene. The loop was thoroughly flushed. I just filled the loop up with coolant (distilled+corrosion inhibitor) and let it run for a couple of days at varying speed. Then, drained and filled with coolant. No other chemicals; baking soda, vinegar, etc. If that's what you're asking.

Also, the little section which I cut earlier (seen in previous photo) has now become cloudy in just 24 hours. It's sorta like a white haze, no gunk or thick slimy stuff. All fine by me if it doesn't get worse or leave any nasty residue.

Alright so here's my question i want to ask, with monsoon's newly released angled light port fittings how can i get some durelen tubing to get that fogged tubing look. I dont want to deal with any pasticizer problems so that's why im aiming to use the durelen, which seems promising. Any ideas peeps thanks in advance thumb.gif

Are you sure it's not causing anything to junk up?

And clogging up the blocks? No idea as I have not opened them up, but the temps stay nice and cool like when I first installed them. The only visible residue besides in the tubing itself is the white stain in the reservoir. BTW, I had a look in the 200mm Phobya and it seems fine, nothing out of usual.
post #1727 of 3087

So I ran the "SYS SCRUBBER" for 3 days and all the white film was gone but the res looked like it had nonfat milk in it, I took everything apart even the block and rinsed everything off and put it all back together.  I didn't see any sediment or gunk and its working great.

 

I am curious to see if the white film returns though.

Engine coolant probably wouldn't do anything. Engine coolant is just a corrosion inhibitor.

I have no idea if it would do anything adverse to the blocks though. I'm not sure it would play nice with copper.
post #1730 of 3087
I've used engine coolant+distilled 50/50. It doesn't have any problems at all, except you need some kind of growth inhibitor used with it, and it should be changed once a year, because it gets very corrosive over time.
