    I think 1,080 lbs/hr is pretty good?
    just sayin?

    i have used two g5's at a time push pull or pull pull and have no problem getting 3-400lbs/hr liquid!

    vapor is vapor!

    whatever you use you gotta heat it up and let er run all night if it is a big machine!

    either way!
    g5 is good!

    we have the HUGE trane high speed recovery machine at work!

    it is heavy and bulky!

    still use it on 1,000 tr or more!

    Too bad the EPA doesn't like the idea of home made recovery units I believe something like that is illegal unless its registered or you get caught.

    I use a 5 ton water cooled condenser on mine at times, tanks never get hot.

    are you push pull or just liquid?
    Just pulling liquid. It had been a long time since it ran last which didn't help me. Those long recovery times are great for van organization projects!

    I got a small refrigeration unit condenser with 3/8" tubing in the coil. I hook up that coil in between the outlet of the G5 and the inlet of the tank and put the coil in front of the G5. The unit blows enough air through the coil to keep the pressures down.

    I've used it during the summer with good results.

    Not too bad, I dont use it all the time. What was heavy was the Carrier pump out from a 19EA.

    I have a coaxial rig also. A ton and a half. Don't need much water flow either. Major subcooling and recovery speed increase. Goes between recovery outlet and cylinder inlet.

    That is nice Dallas, if you had a lot of rooftop recovery, it would be a good choice.

    Mine was salvaged with no expense though

    Dallas how did you attach the fittings to that plate? I didn't see any threads etc.

    I would like to see the Appion in action. I have only used YJ Machines, I like the older ones more then the newer ones that cut out before its done..
