    I have dreamed of this, but with a ammonia loop. Only that pesky death thing to stop me and actually doing it.


    Try some Freeze 12 instead of R12 or R22 it has higher termal efficency and works at a lower operating pressure. Makes for longer compressor life.



    And not to disagree, but the capilairy (sp) tube carries liquid that expands, not the gas, the reciever dryer removes any water vapor left in the loop so it doesn't freeze in the expansion chamber. A overefficient cooling loop will actually destroy the pump sooner due to thermal variance in the incoming charge gas to the compressor, we have a few systems that some stuff uses that runs the (diesel engine) coolant through with the return charge (in a crude heat exchanger) to make sure it is at least above 50F.


    Awsome job on this.

    talking about death.....

    i went to evac the window AC yesturday to get started on removing the rotary, the pierce valve pierced the suction line(low side) and exploded. it's a good thing i had gloves on.

    Close call there! I love gloves. :) This is a trip though and I subscribed. The most experience I've had with HVAC was running hard copper lines for the guys who knew what they were doing at the unit end. I hope you get this to a science. I would love a phase change to fool with.

    Good luck!
