Water Chiller Maintenance

Maximus chillers provide maintenance to a wide range of water chillers. Some of which have kilowatt hour meters fitted. This means we can monitor the reduction in energy consumption, directly as a result of our maintenance being carried out

Efficient Water Chiller Maintenance

Maintenance is carried out to ensure every aspect of your water chiller is running efficiently. We believe our Tick Sheet is the best in the industry. It looks in detail at the running conditions of the plant, component adjustments and the parameters in the controls. The Tick Sheet is used to assess if there are problems that are starting to occur before a safety shutdown happens. Below are some of the issues that we keep on top of to increase the efficiency of your plant

Shell and Tube Insulation

The build up of dirt acts as an insulator in shell and tube heat exchangers. These are used for the evaporation and the condensing of the refrigerant

The evaporator

In the evaporator, should the tubes be fouled, there will be a reduction in heat absorbed into the system. This will cause the plant to stay on longer and use considerably more energy. Should the tubes become considerably fouled, the water chiller will malfunction and eventually system shutdown will occur

The Condenser

In a shell and tube condenser, the reverse of the above will occur. Tube fouling, acting as an insulator, will prohibit the rejection of heat from the system. The head pressure control will open the condenser controls to try and assist in heat rejection. Heavy fouling will cause an increase in the consumption of energy. Eventually a safety shutdown will occur causing loss of production

Compressor Loading

Should the loading of the compressors be found to be faulty. The plant will not be able to effectively match the load

Over Loading

Too much loading may occur, causing the water chillers to achieve set point too quickly. The plant will then go through the off cycle. This means that the plant will have to load back up, using more energy than matching the load continuously

Under Loading

Should the plant be unable to load up to the required level to match the load, this will cause the water temperature to creep up and the lag chillers being called for to match the load. More water chillers running than necessary dramatically increases energy consumption
