    That's how it works with me too. If your oncall and get a service call on Sunday it's 1-1/2, but if it is a construction project or scheduled shutdown it's DT.

    Most posts on here have a question mark in them somewhere, so what's your point?

    I'm sure that they can be made to work satisfactorily, but maybe not by anyone who you work with. :eek:

    What do you need help with? The suction pressure seems fine for a refrigeration application, and I think the condenser pressure setup is probably ok too. Do these things work ok, or are you having...

    As for the fan being more powerful in this unit, I'm not sure. Often times in places like Texas you need to oversize the furnace to get a big enough blower to power the air conditioner. For just a...

    I believe the voltage that you will see across a run capacitor is the back EMF that the motor produces when it runs. It's sometimes higher and sometimes lower than the voltage that is powering the...

    This can also be caused by the RPM of the replacement motor being too high, or the RPM rating of fan blade being too low. As an experiment to get them by until the right parts can be obtained, try...

    I don't know what a ptat is or what specific application you are dealing with, but for a condenser fan cycling control on a R22 unit used in low ambient conditions, 300psi isn't too terrible for a...

    While we're at it, how about cast iron fittings, can they be used on gas? I have a couple of old cast iron 90's rolling around in my truck meant for steam condensate lines that I will probably never...

    Was it actually wood gas piping in the walls of a house? Was it threaded? I have seen piping for gas lights before, but it was black steel pipe.

    By the way, Here's a link to a story I just found...

    I have been told that they actually used wood for gas piping a long time ago. I believe there still might be some buried wood gas lines scattered around that are still in use in some parts of this...

    I would say that for the pressure required for an air test in most parts of the country, those crappy couplings would probably pass the test most of the time. For gas piping where I am though, the...

    The "thread protectors" that come on the pipe are threaded all of the way through and aren't tapered.

    The tapered couplings that you are supposed to use get shallower towards the end of the...

    I think there may be some problems with R410A's performance dropping off as the compression ratios get higher.

    Personally, I would much rather see R404a used for everything. It's way too late...

    Come on man! Getting water to drain through a pipe isn't rocket science. Could it be that the pipe is plugged up with something? If so, figure out a way to clear the blockage. Is the pipe...

    This brings up an interesting question. I know that on a propeller fan if you go up in rpm, your motor will over-amp and live a short life. If you need to increase the rpm on a prop fan motor, you...

    I am pretty sure that most ice machines that have remote condensers still use pre-charged linesets. It's just a discharge and liquid line on those, though.

    Pre-charged linesets have special fittings on them so they can only be used on equipment that is designed for their use. To be honest, I don't even know if they make mini splits that can use them. ...

    I am guessing that this is a ductless mini-split unit. If so, it sounds like you don't have much left to do except to hook up the pre-charged lineset, open up the valves, and turn the thing on. ...

    What I came up with are Airedale and EMI. Airedale's website says their ceiling mounted units are...
