What happened TGA Subcool?

What happened TGA Subcool?

Dave Bowman, known to the cannabis world as Subcool, died on Feb. 1. He had been ill for quite some time, battling Alpha-1 antitrypsin deficiency and emphysema, as well as the fallout from a divorce and a California wildfire that took nearly everything he’d worked to create in cannabis.

What strains did Subcool make?

Remembering Subcool and paying it forward He also surrendered the rights to the strains Ace of Spades, Agent Orange, Black Dahlia, Brian Berry Cough, Jillybean, Orange Velvet, Plushberry, and Timewreck.

What happened to Subcool and Miss Jill?

Sub and Jill were lucky to escape with their lives, but they lost everything, including almost four million seeds and all of the male and female breeding plants they had saved over many years. Devastated, the pair went their separate ways, and Subcool tried to pick up the pieces and move on.

Who owns TGA Genetics?

On February 20, 2019, Subcool and MzJill met in mediation to officially separate. Subcool surrendered TGA Genetics IP to her and officially became the Dank, the same name of his two books.

How do I calculate subcooling?

Refrigerant liquid is considered subcooled when its temperature is lower than the saturation temperature corresponding to its pressure. The degree of subcooling equals the degrees of temperature decrease below the saturation temperature at the existing pressure. Subcooling Formula = Sat. Liquid Temp.

What is normal subcooling temp?

Generally speaking, 10-12° of subcooling at the outlet of the condenser coil is most common. However, you must look for the proper design subcooling for the particular system you are working on. Some systems will require subcooling readings of up to 16° for maximum efficiency and capacity.

What is the best superheat?

Most heating and cooling systems should operate at a superheat of 10F at the evaporator and between 20F to 25F at the compressor.

What is a good target superheat?

The minimum recommended target superheat for most charts is between 4F to 5F for the environments with low indoor wet bulb and high outdoor dry bulb.

Does adding refrigerant lower subcooling?

The difference between the measured liquid line temperature and the saturated condensing temperature is the liquid subcooling. Add refrigerant to increase subcooling. Recover refrigerant to reduce subcooling.

What is the ideal superheat?

20 degrees to 30 degrees
Total superheats from 20 degrees to 30 degrees are recommended to ensure adequate compressor cooling and preventive liquid control to the compressor. The TXV, however, should be set to maintain proper superheat for the evaporator.

What should superheat be with a TXV?

The typical TXV comes factory set for 8-12 degrees of evaporator superheat, which in most cases should be fine. What is the correct setting for evaporator superheat? While it is true lower superheat will make the evaporator more efficient, we need to be more concerned with the compressor or total superheat.

How can I increase my superheat?

Turning the adjusting screw clockwise will increase the static superheat. Conversely, turning the adjusting screw counterclockwise will decrease the superheat.

What is the rule of thumb for subcooling?

The 10 degrees subcooling rule of thumb is just a rule of thumb. Many machines out there were designed to operate at 15 degrees subcooling. In addition, many variables besides refrigerant charge affect subcooling, like airflow, coil matching, metering device type, and sizing, as well as coil cleanliness.

What is proper subcooling for 410a?

Most heating and cooling systems should operate at a superheat of 10F at the evaporator and between 20F to 25F at the compressor. if your HVAC system has a thermostatic expansion valve (TXV), the subcooling should be between 10F and 18F.

Does a dirty filter raise or lower superheat?

Dirty Evaporator Coil- A dirty air filter, evaporator coil or lack of air flow will cause superheat to measure low. Suction pressure will be low.

Does adding refrigerant increase superheat?

Add refrigerant to lower the suction superheat. Recover refrigerant to increase the suction superheat. Note that you should never add refrigerant if the superheat is already 5F or less, even if the charging chart shows 0°F. You don’t want to overcharge the system if your thermometer or gages are not perfectly accurate.
