    Making a Cascade chiller

    Hi guys ^^

    Heres my single stage phase change chiller, runned it for few days just to make sure the whole thing works ^^

    Im currently rebuilding it to a cascade (that was its original purpouse when i bought it ;] wich will use R22/R744 (CO2) but heres some data on it, worth looking ;]

    First the cooling unit, its a 770W sanyo compressor, made as you can see for A/C ;]

    Heres the guy who built this and starts the cascade chiller ;]

    Notice the logo on my tshirt, its from the 52nd engenier squadron from a american base in rammsten, there are 3 sentences wich i love: CAN DO - WILL DO - HAVE DONE

    Temps are -38C full load, the system was uncalibrated, simply filled and fired up, might have went to -60C but who cares when its just temporary ;]

    15min ago ive mounted the TXV tomorrow ill finish my I stage from the cascade chiller, probably ill make some initial tests with R22 but i dont think that it will be able to put enough heat on this monster without CO2... maybe my dual 120W tecs will have some work

    got me a split... for only 500zl... (1$ US = 4zl), comparing it to american standarts its like you would get a new a/c and the "seller" gave you 500$ for just your smile...

    Got it from my friends friend ^^


    Today i didnt have any time for the cascade, tomorrow ill get a new 8rda3+ (my abit nf7s pissed me off, in one month it turned back on me twice) and one of those killer bartons...
