    1/20th hp R134a compressor. What is this used for?

    http://www.grainger.com/product/PANA...mpressor-4MG94

    I was looking at some capillary charts and spotted 1/20 hp. I didn't think such a small compressor existed, but I found it. What kind of equipment uses a compressor that small? I think a small chest freezer is 1/4 to 1/5 range.

    Somebody on here, maybe ummsott, worked on a tiny compressor like that for a wine dispenser at a grocery store or something.

    What about little water coolers? What size would they use?

    omg , compressors that fit in the palm of your hand . I recently worked on a danfoss dc compressor 12 / 24 , but these super tiny compressors may be a game changer for designers lol

    Many wine chiller they sell with digital temperature setting uses thermoelectric. I heard sealed box electronics for use in extremely dust places use peltier as well.
