Keg Cooler with Resi Straight AC condenser
friend of mine just bought a restaurant ( real friggin dump ) kind of in a "shady" part of town if you know what i mean ....
Cooler not getting below 45
Check evap coil , clean , and plenty of air , and I've never seen this before , but the sight glass and drier beside it , but the good news its clear
Look outdoors , Oh great , theres the bad news , its got a residential OD unit , maybe a goodman 2 ton , tags are gone
it appears to have been this way for a while , year maybe , but i dont see how it made it through winters , im sure the head press sunk big time.
I think its got a piston rigged up as well , just glanced at it , but remember seeing 4 cap tube pipes coming out of drier
I didnt have any tools with me , so no numbers yet
What stinks is ..... hes already in debt pretty good trying to make the place hospitable , and now i find this.
How could this have ever worked ?? Or did they just serve 45 deg beer
What cond am i going to use without killin his wallet
Need some figures. If you get that 2 ton running & feeding that 5x5 box, Moe could be serving beer popsicles.
Don't assume that it doesn't work.
Wonder if they have a fan-cycling head control ? Don't know your winter ambients.
Those "gut feelings" of a business drawing its' last breath & looking for another tech to shaft... are usually true.
winters , oh it gets 20 degrees in january at night , 35 during day
Hell maybe they turned the cooler off and set the kegs outside ....
Anyhow , I think the line sets about 10 feet long , compressor above unit , but outdoors
Maybe thats how its getting away with such low suction , and getting oil return
Well if its a panel box, 8' tall and normal usage, 4000 Btu's but I would go 6000.
6 foot tall ceiling , kegs and few boxes of food on the shelves
made out of 3/8 plywood and 1 inch blue board
so ... yes , it has condensation problems , theres water on the floor around it ..... but he said dont worry about it now
alrighty , you're the boss
