    Capillary Tube,simple,easy

    My beginnings w/ Cap Tube systems. Good Ole' RSES to the rescue!

    RSES SAM# 620-43, "Servicing Cap-Tube Systems" by Philip Gervais, 17 pgs.
    RSES SAM# 620-42, "THE CAPILLARY TUBE AND ITS APPLICATION TO SMALL REFRIGERATION SYSTEMS,by Lloyd A Staebler,14 pgs.
    RSES SAM# 620-98, "CAPILLARY TUBES-THEORY AND PRACTICE" by Henry Ehrens, 13 pgs.

    Then Mr.Ehrens has a 2nd article that he wrote while being the President of SUPCO.
    It is "Theory and Field Problems of the Capillary Tube",,12 pgs.

    ALL a Good Read!

    CAPILLARY TUBES-THEORY AND PRACTICE" by Henry Ehrens is a very instructive read and I handed out copies to all my refrig students. Most of which were probably ignored..

    Explains how a "fixed orifice" in the form of a long tube has (some) capacity control unlike a flowrater.

    I have that and just now downloaded it again, thanks to pecmsg. I have many great downloads thanks to you, sir!
    And hey Techman! I have a list of books that you posted a yr or two ago but its lost on my phone flash card like everything else. I remember one of them goes back to the 19th century. I recently bought the Carl Geist book for $5 and am glad I did. Now, Wirz' Commercial Refrig is peerless but I pure-dee hated that "Modern" textbook I was required to buy used for $75 in 1997.
    I wouldnt mind having that list again, Techman when you have the time please, sir. You can can send me a pm if you want to.
    Thanks, Jimmy

    I knew from reading your posts Techman, you were too busy workin'!
    It was a list of old books bec I had talked about that in a post but they weren't on any one subject. Don't worry about it for now, anyways.
    Thanks, brother!
    I miss when you could still take time to charge by the frost line.

    Sounds good. Funny thing is how many of my peers arent even and wouldnt be interested in reading even though theyre in the field. I have an obsession for refrigeration related things whether its looking at old ice boxes or reading old literature. No matter how far we advance the basics are always still the same. Fascinating!

    Some of us just instinctively know that all.
