    If a car can run off water so can a Bitzer compressor

    How much more can there be, 40 ton chiller, water to refridgerant ratio

    Had a brazed evaporator plate fail.
    30 gallons of water from the receiver
    4 gallons of water from the compressor
    15 gallons from the condenser


    after all of that it still runs

    All safties failed, freeze stats not straped to the line, just held in place by the 3" i.d insulation over the 2" water line, secondary safties expoxied to the supply line in a well and the well no touching the supply line.

    Chiller circulating pump and building loop pump, piped together, chiller pump went down, loop pump back flowed through the chiller kept enough water flowing to make the flow switch, And the rest is water under the bridge.
