    Looks cool keep us posted.
    Arguing with your Boss is like wrestling with a pig in
    mud.
    After a while you realize that while you are getting
    dirty, the pig is actually enjoying it.

    It is not exactly cheating, I prefer to consider it
    creative problem solving.

    This is our first conversion, another YR is sitting next to it. We have learned a lot for ex. Suction and discharge piping will be steel all way to compressor, bypass will go directly to suction header, platform will be smaller. I'm putting it all in power point presentation and will send to any of you by email. We having lot fun with it and generating lots of local interest.

    Project looks great. I would certainly like a copy of your powerpoint. What a great project to get involved with. You have some great salesmen to be able to land a project like this.

    I like that fire engine red barrel if it runs as good as it looks you have a winner. Just curious did you guys do all the engineering for this or somebody else.

    photo65.jpgVP of sales, myself and our engineer settled on layout and engineer drew up piping, compressor layout and panel layout. Multi-stack sized compressors, reviewed our design, advised on pipe sizing and provided some of the specialty items. We could not have asked for better support than what Mult-stack has given us! We will make improvements on design on next machine. We will be able to fab headers, and compressor piping in shop on next one, saving lots of time and material. Team will set panel and start wiring, add charge, and make ready for start-up.

    Nice work! Looks real sharp.
