    Well; who likes water chillers? :eek:
    So I was sitting in the workshop, I'm cranking out on ECI 33+ the big 3 stager and decided I might as well work on some other projects too. I mean I've got a 3 stager to work on, and almost done with two single stage units, but who doesn't still have some free time? :kookoo:

    I'll simply point out that this has no owner and could be yours ;)

    So a liquid unit.

    Specifications:

    1/5hp high displacement compressor; 4.5cc low temp low back pressure.
    CPEV; for adjustability
    Cube condenser, with Drewmeister shroud, and 24-48V sunon fan and Meanwell powersupply
    Dual H-50 Refrigeration Research Heat exchangers
    Filter drier and misc electronics

    Parts pictures:

    For anyone watching the time; planning out something like this can be complex.
    Or it can be drawn on a napkin. And then immediately done.
    For everyone that has ever met me at an OC event; they'll know diagramming on napkins is rather the norm at the after party.

    Measured out piping and brazed up the heat exchangers.

    Looks like it is going to be a beautifully compact little unit. Have you got a layout you could show us? Even if it is just a napkin drawing?
