about 3 months ago we had a request from our costomer from an islamic institute here in south africa, he wanted the condensor upgraded for the ice-cream freezer room, that -20 wasn't cold enough, my boss left me there to finish the job and not with everything which i needed,

see the blue condensor, we took out the one which was black and put back everything which was on the old one, now the valve which was on the reciever tank was a 3/8's, and i didn't have a flair nut, so i din't want to wait so i just welded it on, and then 3 weeks later it started leaking on there, my boss fixed it up properly and added a shrada valve on to the pipe cause that valve on the reciever tank couldn't get gauges connected onto it,

we changed the system from R22 to R404a, it's running now at -25/28,

so it was a success :D
