    Very nice! Thanks for sharing. I've never seen one of those. How does it ship? What comes already assembled, and what is assembled on site? Can you give an idea of how big it is? I'm guessing 12-14 feet to the top of the discharge line. Hmmm, I see you use metric where you're at. Guess one of us will have to translate...

    What little I found at Carrier's site looks like it comes two pieces; the shells and compressor/gearbox/motor. Of course, I'm presuming that it doesn't come in one piece.

    I have the privilege of living and working where they built the York centrifugal machines. We are in the process of building 3 5k ton OM's for an Ivy League school.. Do those machines have a desuperheater for DHW or heating water? Very cool stuff.. Would love to work on them one day.. Excellent pics!!

    It cools an entire university campus in the middle east. The unit arrives in parts... cooler, condenser, drive train, and interconnecting piping all separate. The control panel is wired in separately as well. A lot of installlation process and expertise required. The chiller is 20 foot to the top of the discharge line here, but height is something that somewhat depends what is at the jobsite. These chillers are designed to the jobsite.

    What voltage? Only 148 amps tells me this is on the high end of medium voltage or possibly even a high voltage machine.

    I feel sorry for the apprentice that will have to punch those tubes. It'll take a week to get the end bell off. A lot of chillers going to the mideast. I was up at Trane recently and Dubai had an order for 80.
