Doh! OK how's this?

35' 3/4" ID tube for TIH
(2- 10'/ 15' in 2-3 pieces)

6' 3/4"+3/8" for TOH
Both need a little wiggle room to install

4- 5 1/2" squares

1- FPHE cover (custom, like everything we make)

And 1 HydroCover

Do you need the OD of the 3/4" hose or do you have it? I will be using Dayco brand standard heater hose.

Is -30 cold enough?

Postby John Galt » Wed Jul 30, 2008 10:44 pm

It gets to minus 30 here during the winter, and occasionally to minus 40.
I was considering options for insulation on a 16plate KAORI 7.5"x3"
with an 85W silicone pad preheater mounted on the back of the FPHE.
Do you want to try your insulation in the cold North Cdn winter?
I was thinking maybe a double layer.

FPHE cover

Postby leftcoastjeff » Thu Jul 31, 2008 11:27 am

Sure we can call it the "arctic class"

Is that FPHE Kaori, 7 3/4", 2 7/8", 1 3/4" ?

Good name.
It's a KAORI 16 with these dimensions.
7 9/16 x 3 1/8 x 1 3/4
193mm x 80mm x 44mm
close enough to the dimensions you've got.

Perhaps double layer insulation with the blue to the outside for the Arctic Model.

You are looking at my first prototype which was 6.5mm thickness.

That's double thick compaired to later mods, I think that 6.5mm is overkill for any other situations (other than Arctic class).

Blue= Arctic class, that's a great idea!

How about your filter element? HOH and valves?

FPHE cover

Postby leftcoastjeff » Fri Aug 01, 2008 7:19 pm

OK, Will ship soon, Blue? Some reengineering.....the stuff I was using has the fuzzy side of the velcro laminated on the rubber (3mm), so I need to put that on with stitches.(6.5mm)
Do you have the FPHE in your hands? If yes I could use a couple more measurements for the placement of the fittings.

I thought it was black on one side and blue on the other.
Black is good, two layers I think is the Arctic advantage.
I plan to put a layer of aluminum foil between the foam layers.

This file, 2nd page, shows the dimensions for the KO30 FPHE most are using.

Neoprene.. Isn't that the stuff they make the space shuttle out of?
If you would like to have someone testing your insoles in Sunny, FL I am willing to help :)

I don't think tiles would be very flexible.

I've been testing insoals for years! Works nice for a while then becomes flat as a piece of paper from my massive weight (145Lb. wet)
OBTW Neoprene does NOT breath (sweaty feet)

By insole I meant insulator :/ I will have to be more specific from now on.

P.S. My FPHE is naked.
