View Full Version : Chillco training
04-05-2010, 03:34 PM
My company has recently said that I can go down for some chiller training, they would prefer that I go straight to the manufacturer like carrier and take the 30 series class they offer. We have a few carriers,few tranes, yorks and multistacks. And 2 centrifugals we look after. looked into the entech training, it looks real good and I have heard good things about them, it looks a little more heavy on centrifugal side so the company doesn't want to go that route. I stumbled across a company called CHILLCO in Louisiana, they look pretty good, they cover a little on centrifugals,screws and recips.. My question. To you guys is.... Has anyone heard anything about them?
Any feedback is much appreciated
Thanks a lot guys....

The best generalized, one size fits all information is going to come from reading manufacturers' application manuals or the posts on hvac-talk by the guys who work on chillers of all shapes and sizes.
If it were me, I would go after training on Trane's air cooled R-series machines or Carrier's 30-series screws, scrolls, and recips. There are more of those two out there than anything else on the air-cooled side.

Now take this with a grain of salt, ive never worked for chillco but i have been on jobs with them ( i work on the gulf coast in mississippi ) i was down on a boat in morgan city LA, the boat had 3 100ton york screws, they had calles our company and chillco to see who would get there first, the manager there kenny cozzo was the tech that arrived shortly after myself, he was very very knowlegable and was more than willing to stay and help me despite i didnt even work for him, they have a very good reputation on the coast and i would figure their training would match. hope this helps!?
