    CVHE

    I just started working for a company that works on a lot of chillers and I will be helping on pm's. Today I was helping a guy remove the suction elbow on a CVHE to replace leaking gasket and I started to think about how it works as I am not experienced on them will someone explain in detail the Refrigeration cycle of the CVHE to me.

    Thanks alot I just started this new job on Monday. They told me when I was hired that if I show them that I want to learn chillers that they will keep me working on them but if not they will put me on small units.

    Please understand that you have the chance of a lifetime.

    I know a lot of guys trying to get into the "big stuff" end of the trade and there just isn't enough equipment to support it. The big stuff is where the money is.

    This is your "born with the silver spoon in your mouth" entrance into this trade. Make the absolute best of it.

    X2. In 1985 I hired on with the local Trane Commercial Sales office. I was fresh out of the Navy, in a different field. The local paper's classifieds had a help wanted, "no experience required" ad that I answered that led to this job. I was told during the first interview that "no experience required" meant that it was required that the job applicant have no experience, not that it was ok if you had none and ok if you did. I soon came to realise exactly what zw17 is saying and have never regretted it and have always been grateful for it. This type of work has been very rewarding, both financially and emotionally. You would be doing yourself, and your family, a huge favor by making the most of this opportunity. Show your employer that you are eager to learn, eager to help, and eager to take on resposibility. Good luck.

    And also, eager to turn a wrench. The big stuff is alot of bull work, rigging work, plus alot of grey matter work when it comes to measuring tolerences, torque specs. etc.

    You can start the day in front of a computer, and end it setting up an A-Frame and moving 1,000 + pounds parts. On the same chiller. Your back and your brain will get a workout. Your level of exhaustion will be exceeded by your level of satisfaction, and pride. I saw an episode of Star Trek - Next Generation last night. I thought of you when Capt. Picard told Wesley Crusher (who was about leave to attend Star Fleet Academy) " I envy you. Your adventure is just beginning". Oops, my inner geek is showing.

    I say you have an opportunity being presented to you that many people wait years and years for! Make the most of it! I was in the trade for 7 years before I saw the inside of a centrifugal chiller on the job!
