Service to Chiller Evaporator

Service to Water Chiller Shell of Evaporator

Not often does this kind of chiller service fault occur. Usually the water chiller evaporator has frozen up and burst the tubes inside the shell. This fault involved the shell of the chilled water system itself bursting. On close inspection- the shell was made out of thin steel- not the usual heavy rolled steel. It looked like the near end on the photo had sagged down, causing the evaporator shell to buckle

Replacement of Evaporator

This option would be expensive due to the cost of the evaporator. It would be a difficult chiller service visit because of access issues. The builders decided to site the water chillers round the back of the building. This makes glycol chiller service very difficult. A dedicated lift and shift company would be needed to get the old chiller evaporator out and the new on in. There is a difficult corner to get round where the evaporator would have to be tilted up to get it round. Also, a fence wound have to be taken down around the chillers. Of course security is an issue but so is chilled water system service to glycol chillers and air cooled chillers

Water Chiller Service with Silver Solder

Because of the above it was decided by the customer to attempt chiller service using silver solder. The Risk Assessment Method Statement allowed for the chilled water system service to be carried out with a half hour fire watch. The oxy-acetylene lines were leak tested prior to the chiller service. Both leaks were soldered up but despite the evaporator being drained down, there was still water and steam trying to get out. Not the best water chiller service soldering resulted- but it held

Air Cooled Chiller Paintwork

Because air cooled chillers are usually outside- the service of the chiller paintwork is essential. Poor water system service of paintwork will reduce the chiller's life. After preparing the surface, direct to rust paint was applied so as to protect it for the future

Lagging Service for Glycol Chiller

The main purpose of Armour Flex lagging is to reduce heat gain from the environment to the chilled water system being serviced. This provides service protection from the elements for the glycol water chiller as well

 


Chiller Service Bodgers and Fan Speed Controllers

Chiller Service Bodger Watch

The chiller service industry is a good industry, but this is bodger watch!

A new chiller service customer of ours was telling me about this little guy that used to come: running around like the apprentice- ringing everybody up! Then when help came, it came in the form of this huge big fat man who proceeded to get stuck in the chiller! You couldn't make it up! This is bodger watch! The customer needed some professional chilling plant service from Maximus Chillers

Repeated Leaks on Chilling Plant

Our engineer found the head pressure control was bringing the fans thumping on and off forwards and backwards. During a water chiller service visit the fans were found to be rattling the frame and juddering the chiller into leaks

Learning How to Think

Instead of just swapping like for like parts. Our engineers have the capability to think outside the box and make changes to chiller design. Our ex-services engineers attend the Maximus School of Chillers at Head Office in Droylsden, Manchester. Read More on the About Us page

Fan Speed Controller

Maximus Chillers fitted off the shelf, Carel fan speed controllers from our stores, on a chilling plant service visit. We fitted one for each refrigeration system. These fan speed controllers are stand alone- they do not need to be integrated into existing chiller service controls. When the pressure builds up- the fan speed controller speeds the fans up from the minimum (cut in) to the maximum (same volts as the incoming supply)

Seamless Operation

Now the fan speed controllers are fitted- there are no more leaks. Any chiller can be made to settle down into seamless operation. This is done through chiller service and chiller upgrade
