View Full Version : How a rack works
11-26-2005, 12:42 AM
I know a lot of newbies on here like to know how a rack works. Well the boss gave me a website he uses. Its actually a description about mufflers, but below the pic illustrates a com refrig system. So check it out and take notes.

Hmm. I guess when that evaporator reaches temp, someone walks over and turns off the switch for that "rack".LOL.
Well, the picture includes all components that Henry valve sells.:rolleyes:

Speaking of Henry,
what the heck has happened to them?
Heard they were hitting some hard times....
good product line too.

AC&R sucked them up a long time ago. They're still around, just don't see them as much as the others.
Really, Henry valves tended to be inferior as far as durability goes.

Actually, I think that Henry sucked up AC&R, rather than the other way around...
So, when you see AC&R separators, floats, reservoirs, etc, you're seeing Henry.
The AC&R line is decent. The Henry ball valves were awful.

I dunno that there is a good ball valve
anymore- muellers old ballmaster series
(with that thin cap atop nrubber oring)
-when the stem leaks, "thar she blows!"
I am not too convinced that there is much
out there that can really last with the
new poe/ hfc usage.
thanks for the answer!

Is this as good as it gets for web savvy refrig. techs. :D
I am learning far too much here, please stop with the wide array of technical questions/answers supplied.
Don't seem to be much real refrigeration yapped about, maybe there should some type of apprenticeship to posting.
Maybe divide the topic to 1st,2nd,3rd,4th,Journeyman. Ex. 1st year can read all but only post question in level 1, 2nd year read all post to 2nd year, etc. etc. Questions about residential fridges can go somewhere else. :D
Maybe its just that most commercial refrig. techs either dont know about this site or dont have the time to contribute, lots of resi. topics though, or just too busy to get involved on other peoples problems........ maybe them resi. guys are all Maytag repairmen who have found a new way to keep awake between calls?

would you be referring to the Kenmore query,
or perhaps the "no action today" technical question
elsewhere on the list ;)
This is still kinda new- glad to help out the
newbies at work- want them to learn fast
before they burnout on "all that killer OT money!"
Hell I do it mainly coz I sadly ain't got time enuff
for a decent hobby (waaaaaaa!)-
if only there were more night golf around here....
