NOTES
Note: With computer chilling units
always check with computer staff
before service or maintenance. Do
not only rely on the microprocessor
readouts, always check against
calibrated equipment if in any doubt.

Refrigeration circuits should be


alternated at least every three
months by means of the 'lead/leg'
selector switch. Where operating
information is displayed on central
console, check that no discrepancies
exist between display and master
gauges, if these do occur report and
change transducer(s). For non
electronic systems check installed
gauges against master gauges.

If closed system check for presence


of water.

If concentration has fallen check


pipework for leaks as per item 6.

Do not overlook remote condensers


and pay particular attention to bolted
joints, sight glass stands and
atmospheric relief valve vent.
Vibration is usually the result of
loose or inadequate fixing of pipe
supports and can give rise to
leakage of refrigerant.

If serving computer facilities, check


that alarm is not connected to
computer shut-down system.

Poor or faulty insulation can lead to


ice build up, loss of efficiency and
energy wastage.

Include pump motors. See relevant


section.

Individual machines vary, cut outs


could

include:
i. oil differential switches,
ii. oil, high and low temperature.
iii. water temperature differential
switches on chillers and evaporators.
