      [Webinar] Appliantology Workshop   11/09/2017

      Information is the name of the game in the appliance repair trade today. Appliantology is a powerful information tool for the professional appliance repair technician. But just like with any of the more capable tools in your tool bag, many of the more powerful features are hidden from you unless you "read the manual." Ugh! Who wants to do that? Well, this is one time when you don't have to! In this webinar, Team Samurai will personally walk you through the site and show you many of the useful and powerful features that even long-time users probably never knew existed.

Douggie, the way I got my figures goes way back to mid-70's when I was in school. As I recall,giving a figure of 1 to a tube not fan forced, a fan forced system gets a 3 and a water cooled system gets a 15. Dividing 15 by 3 equals 5. Probably not exactly right but it's a start.An aev keeps a constant pressure in the evaporator. A tev keeps a constant superheat. Aev's are usually used on equipment that has a relatively constant load.

Sit tight, it'll be worth the wait... I hope. :grunt:

That's what I'm asking RSES! I wanted to have access to their Service Application Manual (SAM) online, which has loads of info on all aspects of refrigeration systems in pdf file format. But you have to be a member to do that.

So, on Sunday, I filled out a membership application at the RSES website, www.rses.org, and paid the $101 membership fee with a credit card. Have not heard anything from them and have been completely unable to get a human on the phone despite calling at various times throughout the day. They accept credit card payment of membership but then they have to manually process it? Hang in there, as soon as I get it, you'll have all the goodies you want!

Yeah, ain't I special? No, I've been wanting to do it for a while now and your endeavor here provided the opportunity. Ain't no thang.

I got through to RSES this morning and a nice lady there got me all accessified into the SAM. Wading through it now.
