Emergency response leads to long-term cooling contract


18 September 2017
Carrier Rental Systems has supplied a long-term rental cooling solution exceeding 1 MegaWatt (MW) to one of the UK’s leading window manufacturers, following a chiller breakdown that halted production at its factory.

The failed unit provided all chilled water requirements for the window manufacturer. Following the breakdown, Carrier Rental Systems responded to an emergency call from the company to advise on a solution to enable production to resume as quickly as possible.
Carrier Rental Systems completed an onsite survey to assess the cooling requirements, and recommended a solution to meet the tight temperature control requirements of the production process.

Carrier Rental Systems supplied and installed three high-performance CRS 402 chillers to replace the failed factory chiller. With a nominal cooling capacity of 395 kilowatts (kW), the chillers provide a combined capacity of 1.19MW of cooling, offering additional capacity to cater for peak loads and future expansion, plus increased resilience to protect against loss of cooling due to planned maintenance.

Responding rapidly through its nationwide network, Carrier Rental Systems delivered the chillers to site and installed them in an area adjacent to the factory. They were then connected up to the plant’s internal chilled water distribution system with a temporary hose, enabling production to resume.

Optimum efficiency
The system proved to be highly efficient and reliable, and following further evaluation of the financial and logistical case, the end user opted to retain the chillers on a long-term five-year hire contract. Carrier Rental Systems installed a permanent pipework arrangement between the chillers and factory.

The CRS 402 packaged chiller has a compact footprint and is equipped with integral circulating pumps, expansion tank, filter, and onboard safety features. It can be quickly and easily connected up to an existing cooling plant using Carrier’s Pro-Dialog system.

The Pro-Dialog control module manages all key technical parameters, including compressor, fan and water pump operation, thereby reducing electrical demand and delivering optimum efficiency and low running costs for the operator.

The CRS 402 packaged chiller is part of the Carrier Rental Systems’ complete range of temperature control equipment to meet all requirements. Other products include air handling units, fan coils, heaters, packaged boilers, dry air coolers, cooling towers, chill stores, and generators.

Carrier Rental Systems offers a comprehensive range of temperature control rental equipment at locations around the UK, enabling a rapid response to heating, ventilating and air conditioning (HVAC) breakdowns. Rental periods can be as short as one day to however long the temporary cooling solution is required.
