Rebuilt my fridge and have been very pleased with performance. We went with an Air cooled frigoboat system for mechanicals and may add a keel cooler
at some point. I set up the compressor
with a duct to take the hot air up to a vent that dumps into the cockpit
. All seems to be working well but Im a little concerned about the fan on the compressor
being strong enough to move the hot air up the duct and out the cockpit
vent. The duct run is about 6' in total length and takes a smooth 90* turn out of the compressor, up 4', then a smooth 90* turn and out the cockpit vent.
I have an IR temp gun and was going to see what sort of temps the compressor is getting up to but wanted to first see if there were some guidlines? How hot is too hot? What is ideal compressor temp? Where is best place to measure temp at on compressor?
Maybe add another computer fan or something inline to assist the heat removal
but only if I really need to. Got enough other work to do...
