Subject:
Making a vacuum pump from a compressor

Gary Evans Tallassee, TN
>Hi all,

I was hoping someone else would post a new message so that I wouldn't have two up in a row, but I have to go do other things now and I wanted to get this question out there.

I have access to a number of old refrigeration cases, some of which still operate. I plan to strip out one of the good compressors to use as a vacuum pump. Anything in particular that I need to look for in choosing my target? Anything I'll need to take out besides the compressor and the main contactor?

Has anybody seen instructions on line for this type conversion?

Thanks,
Gary
