Air Cooled Chiller Maintenance Schedule Bodger Watch
A chiller maintenance schedule is usually very good, but this is bodger watch!
We maintain the air cooled chillers in an office building. The customer told me there had been this guy who used to come who spent most of his time in the canteen- reading manuals on his lap top! Not even the manuals for that site either! You couldn't make it up could you? What kind of a chiller maintenance schedule is that? They said he used to fix everyone's bathrooms in the evening to make up his pay! This is bodger watch!
Dosing Glycol Chillers
Our junior engineer rang me from a job the other week. Struggling to carry out glycol chiller maintenance. Get your refractometer out I said before you ring. We are teaching how to think for himself instead of just ringing everybody up. He came back with the result- too much glycol. The customer uses propylene even though the site is heavy industrial. This is because the price is narrowing between propylene and ethylene and propylene is not toxic

Customer Dosing of Glycol
The customer adding glycol is the usual course. It means their onsite chiller maintenance engineer can keep on top of things on site. This onsite engineer was a little too keen though: he had been putting too much in
The glycol chiller was performed by telling my engineer to get half of it out into the empty drums that were still on site. The glycol can be used again in the future maintenance of the chilling plant. He then topped up the water system with water

Last but not least all off our engineers give the machine a wipe down and the chiller location a sweep. Good house husbandry is a part of expert chiller maintenance
