    Morning all. The lead tech at my shop is going to reconfigure a walk in cooler today for a friend. He knew my training was more refrigeration based than HVAC based so he's taking me along. Hence why I'm up so early.

    FINALLY I actually get to work on a walk in. Haven't touched one since trade school!

    Story behind this one was it was designed for vegetables, but now the owner is storing NUTS in it. Wonder why they're going bad LOL. I wish I didn't lend my Copeland Manual to my friend who's challenging his red seal. Ah well. Have a good day everyone!

    The same reason you can't store nuts in a flower cooler. The humidity is wrong.

    Way to go Ray......dumped the cigarettes 23 years ago a year after I quit drinking....
    I smoked 3 decks of 25 a day and drank a 40 pounder of Lambs light amber rum with water a day.....
    It always takes an ugly event to get us to wake up. Pain is the touchstone of change in life.....when we are in enough pain, we make the changes. That's why I talk/teach my apprentices at least twice and if they don't get the message I 'make it uncomfortable' so the event is then deep rooted in their minds....forever. That way ALWAYS pulling a disconnect prior to shoving you hands in a unit will save their life.
    Great news on the license.......now you can take Andy out on some country roads and let him drive..... Don't let Karen read this!

    Out on Pender Island cranking 16 hour days with two red hot apprentices getting a 60 ton Ti Plate Hxer to throw in the ocean. Had a helluva time with the titanium couplings leaking.....could only get 3 thread interface on 2" couplings with a 24" spud and pipe wrench.....SOB we had to reef on them.....We threw away about $3000 worth of electrofusion weld fittings from having to cut the fittings off and re-do them every time we had a leaker and we had 12 fittings.....

    Sounds like a bachelor weekend to me Brett. Cook the unhealthy food and rock the just got out of bed look. At the cooler right now. Its being a pain. 2 fan keeprite 8600 btu coil box maybe 8 x 7 x 12 feet with a Copeland fjam-a125Cfv020 condensing unit suction 38 discharge 225 r404a. Won't get the right humidity. Tried adjusting TX and no dice. Seeing at least 20 to 30 degrees superheat. This is a brain tickler.

    Been doin good, just started with a new company. Old company just wasn't giving me enough hours and this opportunity presented itself so I am giving it a shot. So far so good, hope it works out.
    Congratulations.

    I've considered it from time to time, but I don't believe that I'm the right type of person to be in business for myself.

    At least not at this point in my life.

    In a hot box they'll run that high till they get down to close to 10 degF TD.....the compressor doesn't have the 'suck' to get you to 10 degF SH.
    Make sure you're using a good set of digital gauges.....

    Been busier than heck lately and haven't taken the time to keep up here.

    Ray, sucks about your uncle. I've been to too damned many funerals, and I'm sure I'll have to go to more. I HATE them.

    I quit smoking, what, about 7 years ago. 04, I think it was. The wife and I quit at the same time. She used patches, I milked one pack out for a week or so, smoking halves and what-not until there was only ONE left, then I tossed it on the dashboard of the van and went about life. I was done. Had a couple rough patches, the worst was when we were on a tough job and I saw the apprentice light up and snatched the GD cig right out of his mouth and smoked it myself....

    NOT a good idea. I'd been off smokes for a month and only smoked lights when I did smoke. This kid smoked full power smokes. 2 hits had me on my knees and had him in stitches laughing.....


    Bret, great news about your license. I'm with Doug, take Andy out on an empty road and let him drive. That's a great memory.


    Bob, good to hear your back with the good doc. Hope he fixes you up.

    WAAAAAAY low suction. 38#??? I don't have a PT chart handy, but that's cold as hell for a WI cooler. I'd have bet R-22 with those pressures.

    Are you SURE it's R-404a?

    Might could be your problem right there.....
