Zero GWP Propane Chillers Service, Maintenance and Repair
Propane or R290 is a natural refrigerant for chillers with a zero global warming potential. It is a highly flammable refrigerant, so repairs are carried out by our propane trained engineers.
All jobs are carried out in accordance with our site specific Risk Assessment Method Statements. You can rest assured that you are in the safe hands of trained professionals in this specialist field of the industry!

HFC Phase Out
R290 refrigerant has become more popular due to the HFC phase down. A propane chiller is commissioned away from electrical sources of ignition. In the event of a leak, it has a leak detection system which shuts down the plant. Fans come on to disperse the refrigerant. Studies show a significant saving in service costs for this kind of chiller, as opposed to other natural refrigerants. That is not to say propane is better than CO2 and ammonia- it all depends on the application.
Case Study of Propane Chillers
We recently swapped out an electronic expansion valve on a propane chiller. With a specialist pump out unit and the spark free procedure- we decanted the refrigerant. Purging with nitrogen, we then removed the EEV. More purging and time to light up- we fitted the new one with no issues.
