    3 new guides

    Hi guys, I've just finished writing 3 new basic guides to phase-change that cover tools and building. I'm no guru so if there are some mistakes there, then let me know what to correct. But I think there's quite a bit of info there for the beginners

    On the flaring tools: What you are calling the wrench is the flaring block. The head installed on the flaring tool is a swaging head, and you are swaging the tube, not flaring it. The depth of the swag must be equal to the outside diameter of the tube. IOW, if the tubing is 1/4 inch OD, then it should be swagged 1/4 inch deep. The swag connection in the pics isn't deep enough for a strong connection.

    The guide on gassing a prommie I think It will lead to overcharging. Usually if you dump in only gas to 80 psi (R507 only) the system will be overcharged. If R404 (Liquid only) it would absolutley overcharged by gassing to 80 psi.

    that is one awesome guide mate, definate sticky material

    my question is, for some of the temporary connectors, what do u use to ensure it's seal proof? I assume there's teflon tape equivalent? or barb sealants?

    Thx guys, very happy they go down well with you
    Corrections have been done, thx to Chilly1 and Gary.
    EmineM I get most of the stuff from a refrigeration shop locally, with the xception of the flex hose.
    Ragnoarok, which temporary connections are you talking about? The flare connections or the charge hose? For the flare connections, you can just tighten them real tight and it wouldn't leak, at least I've not encountered yet. but I do know some guys use gaskets in between the joints and also some kind of "glue" on the threads.
    For the pressure hose, there are rubber gaskets, which will be pressed down like an "O"-ring when you tighten it onto the connection.
    I've not changed the cap tube of the Prommie before and do not know the stock length. So if anyone knows the length to add or its original length, then it would be nice to add that in.

    ah okay, with regard to the flare, so just do it up real tight? just wondering coz it's bare metal against metal

    and the charge hose with schrader already has an o ring inside from that i gather?

    yes, real tight like using the scissors will do fine as long as the flare you made is nice and round and suitably sized.
    The charge hose already has an "O-ring" inside but you should double check

    Very good articles!!
    Only 100 bucks for such an awesome cooling unit

    btw: What's the price of a vacuumpump, like yours? And is there a wide difference among pulling the vacuum with the vaccumpump, or one/two compressors?

    I bought mine for USD $70. You can pull a vacuum longer like overnight with a vacuum pump but not with some compressors which will get too hot and shut off. Which means better evac with a vacuum pump.
