    N2 would be horrible to use as you would need a very high gas flow through the N2 stage. Argon is on the edge requirering if i remember correctly 4x more flow than ethylene for example. Methane isnt harder than ethylene on paper. Dunno in real life.

    I once calculated that methane needs about twice the volumetric flow compared to that of ethylene to get the same suction pressures.

    Not yet, because I have to work on a lot of custom units. These must be finished first.

    lol, easier said then don, you can't just "hurry" it up, well you can but the unit will all ways be mostly crap when rushed past your natural working speed. This is why I refuse rush jobs, and pleased to see that most here do the same, it is the age old argument of quality over quantity.
    Bring back natural selection! No more warning lables!

    Well, then I'll be checking back at the end of July! So close, yet so far away.
    I had the fastest 32M Opteron time for about 1/2 day, and I'm damn proud of it

    I redid the third stage, using a CPEV instead of captube now. Maybe I will make a testrun tomorrow. I will take pics.

    I changed some parts in the last two stages. Instead of captube I use CPEVs now. And I also redid some pipe work in 4th stage.After I had problems with the R14 in the third stage the unit is running fine now.

    1.stage: R507 -20 to -25°
    2.stage: R23 -65°
    3.stage: R1150 -95
    4.stage: R14 -125 (w/o load)


    In 4th stage the R14 is running without problems, in third stage the HX always warmed up after some time (I think oil freezed in captube after CPEV), with R1150 I have no problems. In 4th stage I use bigger captube after CPEV, here it works fine.
    For a 4 stage cascade with R50 in last stage I think I need stronger compressors to hold about -80° in second stage. But I would be happy for load temps in the -120° area with the R14 in last stage. I will load test tomorrow, and I will finish the missing insulation too.

    like said before, awesome amount of work

    ... but have you adjusted the superheat screw on 2nd stage TXV, i really feel it would help temps on 2nd stage. Try closing it half a revolution at each time so you know how many turns you have closed

    The compressors are too small for condensing R14 in third stage and R50 in fourth stage, thats the feeling I have. I did a small load test today, with 200w it did -115°, I will try to get it down to -120° loaded.
