Looking for someone in SoCal with Phase Change experience

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
At the title says, I am looking for someone in SoCal who has experience building phase change units.

This is not for a PC, but rather I am looking for someone to help me converting a window or portable AC unit into a phase change unit with the evaporator coil being coiled copper similar to this: http://www.coppertubecoils.com/

I am looking to cool down the incoming air temps for an automotive forced induction application.

I will pay, not looking for anything for free.

Ummmm.... You want to chill your intercooler on a turbo car with a with a converted window ac unit chiller?

I am bad at math, but a turbo car ingest massive amounts of air. It don't know how much in terms of BTU, but way more then a 12k BTU ac unit, you would need an industrial sized chiller the size of the car.

This idea is a no go.

I would suggest putting a misting system if front of your car rad and intercooler, that just mists ice cold water from a small ice chest cooler on the front seat of your car or something. Evaporative cooling might give you a 20f temp drop in incoming air temp but I have no idea what that would translate in to actual intercooler temp drop.

I know big tour busses use misting systems to get over the hill in LA so the engine does not over heat.

I am not looking to cool all the air. I have a PD SC, so there is no traditional intercooler. I was thinking of using a flat evaporator or copper coils like I linked in the first post in the filter box. I am looking to reduce the heat soak of the filter box.

I thought about that one, but I do not want to be spraying C02 into the air intake tube. I want something specifically for keeping temps lower than normal in the filter box.

Bump.

I was also thinking about a flat evaporator on the ceiling of the filter box.
