    Thank you for the welcome.

    I'm on my third year of apprenticeship, refrigeration mechanic.

    Work for a very good company.

    We do mostly industrial/commercial refrigeration, as well as marine refrigeration (converting open drive to semi-hermetic compound systems).

    Have had the privelage of working on some pretty fancy cascade test chamber systems, ultralow temp blood work freezers, r-717 ice plants, as well as some commercial/industrial and residential a/c.

    Have rebuilt several, f-line and h-line carriers including the 5H-126.

    Hope to add to my learning regime thru these forums and become a pro member..

    Thanx again Bob.

    You know, we should get the Canuckleheads their own little flag icon with the maple leaf on it. Just an idea.

    Marine refrigeration sounds like a real tough job. I see the shows on Discovery Channel where they are freezing and packing the fish right after they are caught, and it looks like a failure could be a real handful.

    Working on fish boats, requires some body elasticity, as space is tough to come by when piping.

    These types of challenges sure makes it more rewarding when finished, but I don't think I'll ever get used to the SMELL in the holds when setting TXVs.

    Oops, I never checked the rules about company names..
    Anyway.. Marine refrigeration is defanitly a different game!
    Im not sure whats worse, the smell of the fish holds, or nasty bilge water when you gotta go fishing for that wrench you dropped
