Re: Who thought water and computers mixed?

We have a larger sized version of one of those to spot cool a piece of test equipment. During a recent hot spell, the technician asked for some help, as the tester was running out of spec. I discovered that someone had pointed the portable chiller at the tester (good) but had also routed the dryer vent style flexible tube from the back of the chiller into the side of the tester (very ungood).

If you're unfamiliar with this style of chiller, the flexible tube is used to discharge the hot air from the system. Normally this is discharged through a window, into a plenum, or just away from sensitive equipment.
