    New York Stasis Glycol Chiller

    I'm wanting to make a glycol chiller and I've got two air conditioning units at my disposal for that purpose. My goal is to make the compressor reach the lowest temperature so I plan on bypassing the temperature sensor. But I'm curious which unit would work better for this. I know that r410a...

    DIY Tri-Clamp Cooling Coils For Glycol Setup?

    Has anyone ever rigged up a DIY set of cooling coils for use with a glycol chiller? If so, what did you do? I had a couple of different ideas, but as someone decidedly lacking in skills or experience, I'd rather hear about what actually worked before initiating hack and slash operations. I...

    A/C Unit Glycol Chiller Tripping GFCI

    Hello, I built a glycol chiller from an old 5000 BTU window A/C unit a few months ago. It works great, except that every 2 or 3 chilling cycles (on average) it trips the GFCI outlet I have it plugged into. I've tried different circuits and removed every other load from the circuit and it still...

    Another stab at building a cheap Window-AC based Chiller. I snagged the Frigidaire Analog unit from the clearance section at Sears for 25.00 out the door... Add a 35 dollar cooler, a trusty STC-1000, and a aquarium wave generator and here it is. First, build the cart, to keep the whole unit...
