My first direct die

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Hey all

It's been a while since I've posted but I've been kind of lurking. School and work ate my soul and the holidays were spent working on this =]

It's not done yet but this is the second test run.















The writing was done pre mega icy..mega icy was too difficult for me to write on without feeling like I was scratching the evap (still brand new..babying it)

Heh the copper's a lot tougher than it looks

Nice one Bit of extra space there, but if it's not going into a case, no need to 'pack it in'.

Can't see the sticker so well, but that looks around 1/2hp?

Like that mount Is that one of Ron's?

You will probably need bigger condenor for some serious load.

@Gray Mole: That is my evap + suction kit and new ALU hold down.

I think its 1hp. Its some weird japanese R22 comp I dug out of a working AC unit. Couldn't find info on it anywhere I looked. It's only my third working setup so I took my time in trying to plan out the piping this time. Next time I will worry about space ^_^, this time I was worried about clean bends and efficient use of pipe.

Indeed, good quality and great communication, also nice shipping and even overseas it didn't take long. I've had worse experiences in the us lol.

I cant wait to finish this thing and get it running, but with overdue projects from last semester and the spring semester starting tomorrow I didn't have time. Hopefully sometime this week I can find time to bolt it all down etc.

Sorry LD

Nice though. Very nice hold down and mount attention to detail is very important and you've certainly got that down to a science!

Not sure if you'll need more condensor or not. I've been playing with high load on the vapo mods and a second condensor same as a Vapo/Mach2 one is giving 350w no problem.

Besides, Rotaries are a bit loud, so running powerful fans on those condensors will give a bit more. If you have ambient or 5c higher at the filter under load then the condensors are perfect.

I know what you mean about the chinese OEM compressors. Finding info is pretty much impossible but there's always 'something' there to give a hint.

I'm just judging by size but if you look at the sticker's numbers you might find something.

1. LRA - it'll have a number with it, and aroun 25 is usually in the 1/2hp range. 50ish is close to 3/4hp. 70 to 80, 1hp.

That's for 110v. 240v is usually half.

2. Part No. - If you're lucky, the part number will read with a number in the middle of it, like QFD125lksdjf or whatever, it's the 125 that means 12.5cc.

Could also be 075 or whatever, that's 7.5cc

Alternatively, sometimes it'll mean the the BTU rating. I have one that's got GTE52ljkl and the 52 means 5200BTU.

So you might get a hint off something on the sticker
