California houses thousands of manufacturing, research, and health care organizations that require specific environmental conditions to carry out their work. Machinery and computer systems need to be kept cool, specimens need to remain at cool temperatures, electronics function better when kept cool, and processing plants for food and pharmaceuticals need to maintain low temperatures. The most efficient way to maintain low temperatures for a large volume of space is to use a chiller. Using heat transfer mechanics in a manner similar to the functioning of air conditioners, chillers circulate water or glycol through coils, where they absorb heat from air indoors, then transfer that heat to the outdoors. They function best when the water or glycol temperature falls to 45 degrees.
If your chiller does not seem to be doing its job, you may need to call for chiller repair. There could be a number of reasons that the water temperature is not reaching 45 degrees. You could have a leak in the coils, there could be problems with the circulation fans, the compressor, the evaporator, or the condenser. Because chillers are expensive and vital to your company’s output, it is critical to call technical expertise to help with chiller repair. While your own maintenance and facilities people are good at what they do, they do not work on chillers all the time, so they have less experience than our consultants.
It may turn out that you need a new chiller install to replace your current machine, or you may want to add chillers to your cooling line. It may be more efficient to have several smaller chillers, with each handling one specific operation, than to have one large machine handling everything. That way, if one chiller malfunctions, it does not affect your whole operation.
Because chillers cost anywhere from $10,000 to $300,000 it is in your best interest to call on our installation and repair expertise to do the job correctly.
