Re: Flowjet refrigeration pumps overhaul
On this issue.toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
Had a long conversation with Rob at Costal CLimate. As usual, a very knowledgeable guy.
His thoughts. Flojets are super reliable, AS long as they aren't drawing a lot of current, i.e. sucking hard against resistance, or pushing against resistance.
Often a change in pitch denotes strain, I’ve definitely been guilty of letting that go… and with in a short time, at least with my experience, the pump then fails, and off to either the junk yard, or later a take apart. So now I’ll check amp meter if >1.2 amps check the flow and make sure the water paths are unobstructed.
Also… they tell me the frigoboat pump controller is very unreliable, as we've noted on the forum.
So… I've ordered 4 (one extra) pump relays (https://www.coastalclimatecontrol.com/index.php/refrigeration/buy-refrigeration-products.html#!/Pump-relay-12v/p/95699277/category=25823698)
and 2 24 v pumps as it would have to wired to the 24v bus.
Just some thoughts…
