The compressors are on skids in the machine room and can be valved off individually when they have failed. This means the remaining compressors can carry on supplying discharge gas to the condensers. The repair of compressors is carried out in our workshop, or if it is a large compressor, on site- read more about compressor remanufacturing
A popular kind of condenser is the evaporative condenser in a Baltimore Aircoil cooling tower. After condensing, the liquid ammonia goes to liquid receivers before being supplied to the process
This kind of application can have tonnes of anhydrous ammonia in the system, so the regulations require the plant to be contained in the machine room with no unauthorised access to personnel. A wind sock is used to determine wind direction and in the case of a leak, ammonia refuges are sited at strategic positions around the site
Ammonia Refrigeration Maintenance
Mass Flow Rate
Due to the higher mass flow rate of the refrigerant, larger ammonia systems have float valves to achieve refrigerant expansion. A thermostatic expansion valve of the same size would be prone to wire drawing and premature failure
The on-going maintenance ensures the required amount of cooling at a given temperature is achieved. Your process relies on this. Weather that be food production or an industrial process: we will keep you in seamless operation at all times

What We Offer for Ammonia Refrigeration
Maximus Chillers offers weekend repairs of your ammonia refrigeration plant during factory shut down
Case Study of Ammonia Refrigeration
We look after a food production site in Scotland where the machine is a 200kg of ammonia refrigeration plant. We carry out once per month maintenance visits to keep on top of issues starting to occur. This means less breakdowns and more longevity in the machine
