    Haven't seen one since about 2002. Was on the jobsite for something else, but did find it interesting.

    I saw one once, it was a sidewinder with cooling towers, air was circulated through the towers to cool the water so it's kinda air-cooled.....kinda.

    The unit I was referring to was an old R-11 air-cooled machine.

    Never seen an air coled Centra Vac.

    I'm sure there are a few out there someplace, though.

    I have seen this centra vac you speak of, it was owned by a rental company and was providing cooling for a DC college while we tore their main machine down.

    I cannot comment much, but i remember hearing a college girl describe to another how this was the new hydro-power supplement for the schools green initiative. She spoke with such authority that i myself was nearly compelled to believed her.
