The Service, Maintenance and Repair of Absorption Chillers

Maximus Chillers are experts in the field of absorption chillers. With a network of engineers around the country and global coverage- we will surpass your expectations!

Steam Fired Absorption Chillers

These machines are often used where there is a surplus of heat as a bi product, such as, in a power station. We are experts in the service of absorption chillers.


Steam heats lithium bromide/ water solution and causes it to separate. Water vapour passes into the condenser.


Warm water vapour condenses into water on the cool tubes of the condenser. Water is the refrigerant. Heat from the generator and the process is rejected.


The effect of water vapour absorbing in the absorber, causes the evaporator to go into a vacuum. Water, at this low pressure, has a low boiling point. The refrigerant, which is now cold water, runs over the tubes and boils off. This absorbs latent heat from the process.


Water vapour absorbs back into the lithium bromide and the cycle begins again.

Gas Fired Absorption Chillers

Maximus Chillers work in the safe handling of ammonia, ammonia solution and lithium bromide in gas fired absorbers. These machines are often used to feed air handlers.

Ammonia Systems

In this kind of system: water is the absorbent and ammonia is the refrigerant. Some of the ammonia is in the form of ammonia solution. Other names are- ammonia water, ammoniacal liquor, aqueous ammonia and ammonium hydroxide. A lot of names for one substance!

Lithium Bromide Systems

In this kind of system: lithium bromide is the absorbent and water is the refrigerant.

Why Choose Us for Absorption Chillers?

These machines are known to engineers as absorbers. They are a niche within a niche. We are a company that has the capability to repair these machines to beyond manufacturer recommendations.


Case Study of Absorption Chillers

On the quarterly maintenance at a power station, one of four chillers was found to be in fault. As the cooling system is associated with producing electricity, it was important to get it up and running. A relay was found to have blown in the panel. It was replaced with car stock. Another happy customer!
