Fridgecompressor.

Unread postAuthor: Jack_Hogg » Mon Oct 19, 2009 1:57 pm

Ok, well Saturday I got my fridgecompressor. It works fine. I have added a power cable with a flip-switch. Everything works well and its clean and calm. I know how to add the compression fittings withe a tee for a gauge and a bleed valve, but the only question I have is what kind of tubing I should use for the compression fittings (instead of compression rings) The OD if the output is 4.8mm. And another question is, Do you have the parts I needed BTB? I need a Pressure gauge 40/60 BAR, a tee, a piece of tubing for the fittings, and a airhose for connecting the compressor to the quick connect.

Do you mean a normal compression fitting or a homemade compression fitting?

It's a kind of normal compression fitting, but instead of a normal nut, it's a endcap with a hole in it. And the normal compression fittings have those copper rings, they should be replaced with a piece of hose that fit's around the output and in the compression fitting, and then tighten it up really tight. That should hold up the 30-60 bars of pressure.
