    Itsiceman style big ass evac hoses Worth it?

    Im just curious - 3 cfm pump at 2 cigarettes rate - back to back would be about 14 minutes from what I remember.

    So - what tank size seems pretty relevant to quantify pull down speed.

    Anyone ever try putting an RCW filter inline with the vacuum pump on a wet system?

    Wet is relative. Driers really don’t hold much water. I am not really sure how well a drier would hold the water versus a deep vacuum. The drier holds the moisture chemically but I am not sure who would win. I have always hoped that the vacuum would win.

    i am still drawing water out of that flooded 3000 ton chiller. It was going very quickly with over-full vacuum pumps every day for about a month. It changed all of a sudden and now it is going very slowly. I suspect that we might be pulling the water out of the old driers right now. It it has iced up with 80+F ambients.

    Technically speaking, they are all heat pumps.

    I weighed in some water into a drier. Got some out with vacuum but gave up on the rest. It's in some thread. Still got the drier. Was planning on baking it to see if it all came out.

    You're supposed to replace the driers whenever you open the system up.

    Do you even know what you're doing? Have you consulted Fieldpiece AT ALL for this project of yours?

    ROFL! Apparently I don’t know what I am doing and I didn’t call anyone. Doctor, heal thyself!
