    I took these pictures after turning bypass valve off. Flow switch was still closing with no flow through evap.

    Replaced a 99 RTAA 100 ton barrel in Aug. 40k$ job and done in a day. No rupture though the plastic baffles were warped due to hot water damage.

    They are not busted yet. I was just thinking that bypassing evap in winter could cause it to freeze if ambient gets cold enough. Then I wondered what a chiller barrel costs. I have never replaced/retubed one.

    I don't know if refrigerant or h20 is in the tubes. I would think h20 in tubes.

    oh I am sure you could freeze a dx chiller!
    but since it is a tube bundle full of refrigerant surrounded or placed in a barrell of water, it would be hard! I think?
