And if you strap on this container with ice blocks in it then add SALT. (Know hoe SALT makes ice COLDER) right before runningand it would all stay in your PVC mould for you to wach out for the next run... anyone following me?
I think I follow your basic set up but please elaborate.
OK, you asked for it..
HINT: Visualize and READ SLOW
Alright ill make up a situation with specific numbers,bbut keepin mind its flexable.
OK, say that you have a 3" CAI tube with a 12" straight section of the pipe.
-So you go find a peice of PVC (plastic plumbing) thats the same size OD (3" in this case).
-You then get another peice of PVC thats bigger, lets say 5" diameter.
-Cover the ends(glue a peice of plastic over them) of the big pipe.
-Cut a hole just big enough for the smaller pipe to fit inside in one side.
-Then cut both pipes in half.
-OK then strap the cut sections together with a peice of wax paper between them.
-Fill both sides with water (assuming you cut close enough and strapped tight enough) and then freeze them.
-Once frozen you should be able to strap the external sections around your CAI pipe (and it fits perfect because of the matching original mold)
-OPTIONAL- Put some salt on the inside before strapping it to your CAI cause it makes the ice colder
So basically you just made a mold for ice that fits perfectly around your CAI
WARNING- I thought this all up in an evening, it WILL not be perfect the first time, so suggestion are appreciated...
