    Anyone seen CO2 in Supermarkets as A Refer Yet? I guess it was used many years ago. Just Reading as the Next Thing of the future. The Pressures alone are Frighting! :mrbill:

    A few of our techs have had some training but the rest of us it's all on the job training . The racks have no ports on the discharge line so you can't gauge up on that for safety reasons of course. But liquid and suction lines aren't too much higher then 410 systems

    Can't imagine the local Supply House having replacement parts. Compressors must be expensive!

    The local supply houses here don't even have parts for normal stuff.

    Even if you need a 120 volt mkc2 coil, or a kt83-sc powerhead they have to order it, lol

    Coca-Cola tried to hop on the CO2 train with their vending machines. According to the local bottling plant/distribution center/service dept, they were nothing but problems. One of the main problems being the lack of access to CO2. They also said the units were noisy as hell.
