    @Tjita1 yeh it would be for commercial cool rooms or large AC plants

    @Aussie50 I could have used that for my freezer. Three seconds to get from room temperature to -50 or something.. ๐Ÿ˜€ Amazing piece of equipment. I would assume that it’s normally used for cooling industries or big shops?

    @Aussie50 Ok. Is it possible to have an outlet setup to power that at home, though?

  4. |

    @Tjita1 lol nah, it was dropped in transit and written off, I ended up cutting it open and dissecting it for youtube.

  5. |

    @KompulsaOfficial nah I wasn’t actually running it, I had it pulling power off a 25A breaker just to show a friend what would happen.

    How do you power a 95,000 watt compressor in your home?

    It can’t be 240 volts. What did you do to provide it with a power source?

    That there is one big ass compressor. Are you building a heat pump to heat an entire apartment block in Antarctica?

    Yesterday at my workplace the water chillers were stopped and opened for regular maintenance. Two of this monster copressor was sitting inside each unit. These are 120kW cooling capacity Liebert-Hiross units.

    @Aussie50 Are you sure its fully compatible with mineral residue?
    I thought a retrofit had to be undertaken to ensure that no mineral was left due to coagulation at low temps, eg evaporator blockages?

    Nice video !

    what is that 460 volt 3 phase ? and you know how many tons ?

  12. |

    holy shit thats big it can cool a building lol

  13. |

    wow, that sounds about right too, considering the little black ones I have are 700 – $800

  14. |

    i checked their website recently and saw that one like this was being sold for 20-30 grand

  15. |

    that’s a big compressor, I’d never seen one that big before.

  16. |

    its a synthetic replacement for mineral oil in refrigeration systems. fully compatible with mineral oil residue too.
    but it is very hygroscopic so its not much good on open air applications I don’t think.

  17. |

    what is polyester oil ?

  18. |

    V8jagnut has a old compressor built from one of those and it runs well with a small motor!

  19. |

    brand spankin new!.
    I hate to think how much its worth off the shelf at a supplier!

  20. |

    Is that a new compressor?

  21. |

    lol its all fun ๐Ÿ˜€

  22. |

    That was a few years ago, i dont have it anymore, it was left @ summerhouse when we sold it, i had taken it apart and screwed it up so it was useless anyways, and it was too big to be driven w my little 2.2kW vfd. But yeh iยดd liked to still have it tho.

  23. |

    those little 2cyl ones make great air compressors! if you’ve still got it, or can get another one you’ll have a damn good compressor!

    The oil should be fine mineral oil, like for sewing machines. wouldn’t hurt the mower in cold climates!

  24. |

    thats cool. yer blame me for taking the breaker

  25. |

    HOLY SHIT ๐Ÿ˜ฎ That is one HUUUUGE compressor!!! @ the summerhouse we used to have i played alittle w a big semihermetric two cylinder commercial refrigeration/ac compressor w 3phase motor, tho it was only around 50 kilos or less since i was able to carry it, well just barely able. The oil from it ended up in a lawnmower engine justg for fun to see what would happen.
