    i'm with you, this thing is friggin gorgeous. it is a thought crime to simplify what it does down to pulling a vaccum. it's like a sculpture crossed with a poem. the mystery of how it operates keeps me awake nights.
    Again, automatic purge systems on absorbers are far more than just a vacuum pump. To say anything less shows a lack of knowledge on the subject.

    (Don't get riled up - it causes heartburn..........)

    I'd accept the nomination for Secretary of Defense. I never have been a good enough liar or spindoctor to be POTUS. Of course, if we could actually get a couple of blue collar working guys into office, it would go a long way towards getting things on the right track. What do you want to be?

    I'll leave this one alone. It opens up way too much territory to shoot into. (I've opened gracious plenty HX's in my life - one more would just be one more.)

    1) No idea who he/she is
    2) One shouldn't give in depth troubleshooting and service info on an open forum
    3) Not a clue as to what he/she was doing that triggered the question
    4) Lots of one-shot wonders never return to comment on answers given to their questions
    5) #'s 2, 3, and 4 don't preclude us from giving a correct answer

    The original question was very concise. Simply a beginner asking what a purge does/how it works. Could be an apprentice or a building owner/manager that wants to know due to who-knows-what. You asked "why are you asking?". I simply made the statement that they probably wanted to know. No ulterior motives, no subversive plots. Just asking. Should have gone away right there.

    But no, it just wouldn't die. You insinuated that all purges use a small vacuum pump to get rid of the NC's out of the purge tank, and then used a Turboguard as your example of what the guy could be working on. See where this is going?

    It's not about you and me seeing who can pee the farthest - it's about getting correct info to those that ask for it (to the best of our ability). No one's perfect or knows everything. As RichardL says, "Ain't none of us as smart as all of us". I've been corrected on this forum a time or two myself.

    OK - my 2 minutes are up. I don't feel like debating anymore.

    EXACTLY! If anyone had taken the time to look at luno's profile one would have found he/she hasn't been on the forum since 1:19 PM on the day the question was posed. So luno saw exactly one answer to his question. The rest of the contest has been for the entertainment of regulars only.

    look, my friend.

    all absorption chiller purges *are* good sized vacuum pumps. you don't get to piss on me over that. it's a fact. i am *positive* that there are many things you know that i don't know, many jobs you've pulled that i've never had to deal with. i'm sure you're a world class mechanic. i'm sorry, i don't find absorber purges to be that complicated. i'm not going to start crying about the actuator, and the solenoid, and the tank, and the sensor, and the *sniff* software...does anyone know york's passcode to put this thing in manual?! what the hell is this, a gauge that reads in millimeters?! *ack* *weeping*.... oh lord, you've broken me. you win! how could i have been so arrogant! i know nothing of purges!

    as for whatever errors you're finding in my *general* statements about how low pressure chiller purges *generally* operate, i'm sorry that i didn't include everyone's favorite purge, the turboguard, or clearly define the various assortments, brands, sizes, and designs of pumps used to evacuate noncondensables. i hope Lumo comes back so you can undo the damage i did to his brain before it's too late.<- that's sarcasm.
