Thank you Scott. wink.gif

I'm getting ready to braze flex line to my accumulator and then compressor. It is good to get all you copper laid out and ready to braze all at once if possible. You can't leave a compressor with POE oil open very long without the oil absorbing moisture out of the air. That will ruin the oil. So you leave the compressor sealed until your ready to braze the suction line and service line on. Evap, flex line, cap tube, and accumulator all need to be brazed together and then you braze that assembly onto the compressor. You need to run an inert gas such as nitrogen through the lines as you braze so you don't get oxidation inside the copper lines. wink.gif

Ok I understand that phase change is for the cpu. I was wondering if anyone has made a multiple phase change to accommodate vide cards along witb the cpu? This may seem silly to ask but. Was just curious.

Btw rep plus one added, that looks sexy.

Tubing is all brazed with no leaks (I hope thumb.gif}



I'm adding a Temp display to the unit. It will be 120v and incorporate a K type probe which will be connected to the evaporator. This doesn't give you an accurate cpu temp, but you know where you evap stands. At the present time I am pressure testing for leaks at 250psi.



I still have a lot of work to do. Unit has to be vacuumed, charged, and put under a load so it can be tweaked. Tubing needs to be painted along with insulating and mesh for suction line. I also have to hook up the temp display.

thanks for looking. thumb.gif
