Sorry for the delay in response.I'm in werk season .....

---------

Polymer caps are rated -55c I believe.But that is the standard minimum temp for consumer products....I'm betting cold is no problem , they are all plastic after all.....:thumb:

------------

Update time.

I have re-thought a couple of things.I decided the dewar isnt big enough , based on the sizes of the pump I am making.

Therfore , I have purchased a fullsized keg , and 2 foot section of 12" stainless pipe to make a larger dewar.I'll have pics soon.

I feel this step is required based on safety design actually , and here's why ;

The way I am designing this , If the power fails , all the liquid in the main tank (the glass one) needs to drain out , by gravity .The bottom tank where the dry ice is , is safer than the main one from a fire standpoint ,based on the co2 output of the DI.

I am sizing the first piece of borosilicate glass for order.While I'm making it as thrifty as I can , the glass bill will exceed 700$ , after all is said and done I'm sure....so'k tho , the first 300$ of glass is paid for.
---

I am in contact with Dow Corning regarding silicone sealants.They suggest -80c is no problem.

---

I have done more thinking regarding the pump.we'll see ....:haha:

Ok....

wee update time.

I have officially placed the glass order.

I have 4 pieces of Borofloat33 5mm borosilicate glass on the way.

Total cost is $497.99 + shipping from T.O.....

------------

The top of the keg has been cut out with a plasma torch ;



----

I am also working on the main tank inner.

----

I will be going to my local RC/hobbyshop this week to talk about brass propellers for RC boats.They'll make a very nice pump impeller , and they are about 40 bux.

Thx Mang !!

-----------

I almost forgot ....i've also decided on the lighting , since it needs to be installed as the secondary tank is built.

I will be using 1 watt 'royal blue' cree x-lamps.Probably 3 or 4 of em.Under the bottom pane of borosilicate glass.....I doubt cooling will be an issue....heheheh
