Which preassure destroyed your fridge compressor?

Unread postAuthor: Tobin » Fri May 20, 2011 12:26 pm

I did accidently raised the preassure in my compressor to high and the cylindertop gasket blew at maybe 60-65bar, i forget to open a ballvalve... I changed gasket and fixed it but it blew it again today at just 38 bar. :(

How high preassure did your fridgies handle before fail, and what part failed?

Fridge compressor, generaly can work at 40bar maxi or 580psi.

To up it to 70bar, or more, ou can dispose two compressors in series, but it's very dangerous and you must to be informed on the subject.
