- The compressor for our -20 C walk-in freezer
in July of 2004.
Note the thick ice on the accumulator to the right of the compressor.
After the accumulator was insulated and other insulation was improved,
this picture was taken. Ice remained on the EPR,
elbows, along the side of the suction line and around the base of the
accumulator. Eventually the source of the water was found to be
a few pinholes in a 1/2" copper water line.
The copper corroded very slowly and finding the defect was difficult.
These pages originated in 2001, composed by the HTML module in
Oberon running on a 80486-DX PC.
Until ca. 2001 the Web server was Apache in Debian Woody running on a Sparcstation 2.
From then until the Fall of 2015 the server was a Toshiba 4000CDS.
During that time the EPROM in the Sparc was upgraded and Debian Woody was
replaced with NetBSD 6.
At 2015-01-27 the Sparc 2 with the Bozotic Web server was put on line again.
In April of 2015 Web pages were shifted to easthope.ca.
The Sparcstation 2 and Toshiba 4000CDS have negligible value in the marketplace.
These Web pages are for the benefit of the university
community and the population at large.
The information is intended to be accurate, helpful and inoffensive. Failure of any of
these criteria should be attributed entirely to the author.
