Hey Shipmates... My old Danfoss BD2.5 went bad and rather than buy parts
and reassemble and charge, I decided to get the latest middle tier to replace it. The CU95
Looked pretty similar but when it came, it's pretty tiny in comparison. The return line is the same size, but the line going to the evap is smaller than original install. The fittings certainly got smaller too.
I haven't measured my icebox
on the T37 but now I'm worried that the BD35 on this thing isn't going to do the job. I foolishly didn't convert the 250 liters when deciding. 8.8 cu. feet doesn't sound like much. But the BD50 systems are mostly water
cooled so I assumed that would be overkill.
Until I get to measure my icebox
, can anyone tell me I didn't just toss $660? Anyone running this in a standard size 35-40ft sailboat icebox?
And if there's any refrigeration
gurus, can I keep my big vertical evaporator from the old system despite the line size change on exit. That kind of worries me. I'd need to braze a union or braze on some connectors that match and then charge the system... so now I'm thinking I should have just purchased a BD50 and controller. Ugh!
It's not a yacht without a refer... hoping to upgrade from boat by the 4th.
