    This site is a very nice friendly site. Punches aren't pulled though. Ask anybody here.

    When you come here and give bad info, we jump on it.
    Ain't no one here that hasn't had it happen to them.
    And I use to use torres to measure vacuum. Nothin wrong with that either.

    Now try telling us your can't freeze water with a vacuum pump and see what happens.

    I won't say it can't happen, but under usual circumstances in mild or hot weather, the chances of freezing water in a system are pretty remote, regardless of the size pump used.

    If there is enough heat available to prevent the water from reaching 32º, no ice will be formed.
    If more government is the answer, then it's a really stupid question.

    if the pressure chart read 29.921 " hg = 759,999 microns


    please tell me why the statement of :

    "if you are at 30"hg you can be higher then 5,000 plus microns"

    Be a false statement?

    I dont understand what you are saying, do you care to explain?

    I am not picking a fight. I am just learning. I dont pretend to know everything. I am learning new things everyday and I know people who live in diffrent parts of the us are taught diffrently.
