In measurement of pressure, a common term is ?Bar? and is equal to 14.5 psig. Who or where did the term ?Bar? come from and why is it 14.5 psig instead of the standard atmosphere of 14.696 psig.

The term bar is introduced by William Napier Shaw, a British meteorologist, in 1909. He is the director of the Meteorological Office in London from 1907 to 1920.

One bar is 100,000 Pascals which is 14.5 psig while one atmospheric pressure is 101,325 Pascals which is 14.696 psig.

Hi,
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.
Best thing about this new service is that you are never placed on hold and get to talk to real repairmen in the US.
New users get to try the service completely Free afterwhich it costs \$6 per call and covers almost anything you can think of (from cars to computers, handyman, and even drones).
Goodluck!

How to convert 14 to linear inches

linear measure is a length measurement so if you have 14 inches ,that is linear measurement
if you have metric measure and you want to convert to inches,
14 " equals .355 meters or 335.0 millimeters
it is still linear measurement

My lifters are lose put new pump

Lifter dont get loose,they get worn. Do you have the proper oil filter and weight that is required? You need to measure oil pressure the pressure that is required 6psig at 1,000 engine RPM ,18 psig at 2,000 rpm, 24 psig at 4,000 rpm

Loss of pressure in boiler, no obvious leaks, water pressure switch changed plus pressure release valve

Check that your make up water is on.

Make sure your fill valve is working but it sounds like it is not. Your min pressure should be 15 psig. on the boiler. Fill valve will maintain a15 psig on the boiler. Water and pressure does get out of the boiler when radiators are bleed. When fill valve is not working people will keep bleeding the radiators trying to get heat but only lowering the boiler pressure with no water make up.

Make sure your boiler is getting water and has pressure when running.

If it isn't...SHUT DOWN and have a professional look at it.

Pressure relief valve is factory set ta 30 psig and opens when pressure is above 30 psig. This is a safety valve.

Need to adjust Sq D 9013 GHG2

9013GHG2
Fluids / Pressure controlled Water or Air
Cut-0ut PSIG (bar) 60-200
Cut-In PSIG (bar) 40-170
Weight lbs (kg) 2 lbs (0.91) 2 lbs (0.91)

First set the cut out pressure turning the nut on the spring. To raise the pressure turn nut clockwise depressing the spring. Adjust this so you device stops at 110 psi. Remember when you raise the cutoutpressure the cut in pressure will also raise. When you get the cut out pressure at 110, then your cut in presure will be approx 90 psi (current 60psi +30psi you raised the cut out pressure). Now you can lower the cut in pressure but backing out the differential nut, the smaller size. Until the device cuts out aht the 80psi you want.

Superheat Problem

Superheat is the dif. between suction temp on the gauge and temp on the suction line. Make sure you are measuring the right line/ Normal superheat is between 10 to 14 degrees depending on line length. Russ

I just installed a GSC140421 using a coil CAPF

hey there, the matching coil for your unit is a Model# CAPF4860C6A. The coil you have installed is a 13 seer where the condenser is a 14 seer. Myy guess at this point without being there is you have a hot house (80 psi suction) while eliminating more heat from the condenser (180 psi). I am also guessing you are using r-22? If you could post your super heat and subcool readings and if ou have a txv or fixed orifice (guessing txv?) I could help you pinpoint the problem.

Oil pressure

30 PSI hot idle is ok, 40-50 PSI at freeway speeds hot is good. this is based on using the correct weight of oil which is 10W-30W
