Clean your condensers –
Regular condenser cleaning is a crucial step in ensuring the efficiency of your chiller during the summer. Cleaning the condenser promotes proper heat transfer, prevents potential system issues, and optimises overall performance.
The accumulation of dirt on the condenser coils forces your chiller to work harder, diminishing its cooling capacity and increasing energy consumption and operating costs. Regular condenser cleaning helps combat this issue, keeping your chiller operating at its best and minimising unnecessary expenses.
Monitor for leaks –
Make it a habit to conduct routine visual inspections of your chiller system, focusing on connections, joints, valves, and pipes. Pay close attention to any signs of moisture, water stains, or pooling around these areas, as they may indicate a potential leak.
Detecting refrigeration leaks can be challenging and typically requires a service and leak test by a qualified technician. However, some leaks might leave traces of oil directly under the source, offering a clue to their presence. It’s important to promptly address any identified leaks to prevent further damage and ensure the efficient operation of your chiller system.
If you do suspect a leak – contact us as soon as possible to arrange an examination and leak test.
The best way to keep your process cooling system effective year-round is to look for a new energy-efficient way of protecting your chiller in higher ambient temperatures– a good solution for this is upgrading your old chiller to an adiabatic chiller:
