Propane Chiller Maintenance

Zero Global Warming Potential

Propane or R290 is a natural refrigerant, with a zero global warming potential. It is a highly flammable refrigerant so repairs are carried out by our propane trained engineers


All propane service & maintenance is carried out in accordance with our site-specific Risk Assessment/ Method Statement. You can rest assured that you are in the safe hands of trained professionals in this specialist field of the industry!

Hydrocarbon Chiller Service

Propylene or Propane?

Propylene R1270

These hydrocarbon chillers are suitable for low and medium temperature applications

Propane R290

This refrigerant is often used for medium temperatures

Supermarket Hydrocarbon Chillers

The phase out of HFCs in supermarkets means there will be an increase in the use of hydrocarbons. The water cooled condenser is supplied by a water system going outside to another hydrocarbon chiller. The outside chiller is commissioned away from electrical sources of ignition. It has a leak detection system which shuts down the plant and turns the fans on to disperse the refrigerant. Studies show a significant saving in service and energy of this design as opposed to other natural refrigerants in the same application. That is not to say hydrocarbons are better than CO2 and ammonia- it all depends on the application

Case Study

We recently swapped out an electronic expansion valve on a chiller similar to the above. With a suitable pump out unit and the spark free procedure, we got the gas out. Purging with nitrogen then we cut off the EEV. More purging and time to light up, fitting the new one with no issues

Why Choose Us?

Reliable service... reasonable price. We at Maximus Chillers Know that your propane chillers are a big part of your budget. Too much money going on the chillers means less things fixed around the factory or the building. We aim to reduce call outs and breakdowns through regular service & maintenance. A chiller gets younger the more exposure it has to one of our engineers
