    Worthington FCH series chillers

    Hi All,

    Was on site today checking out an existing chiller system. It consists of two Worthington water cooled chillers. Chiller one is a model FCH-500-167-313-2P and chiller two is an FCH-400-147-312-2P. I've been trying to dig up some information on the rated output but seems like these are of the 60's vintage and I can't find any literature online. Was hoping someone (cough cough Richard) could give me some info.

    For the curious folks - chiller one is dead and chiller two is running but with a newer Carrier compressor. They also have two 1960 Mills boilers with original burners that still run.

    Thanks

    First of all how is it that you join 8 years ago and this is your first post? Going to be hard to run down that info, I would look at the size of the pumps and determine approx tonnage from that, I am assuming these are recips based on the fact someone put a Carrier compressor on one of them (what size is it?), really be something to see a 19XR sitting on top of some old Worthington shells.

    I honestly don't have a good answer for that. I view a lot but just never posted before. I got the pump data but I usually walk into a room assuming everything is wrong.

    Just giving you some sh*t, I mean I've heard of lurking but man you take that to another level

    As old as those things are I would think the standard 2.4 gpm per ton would be really close for the chilled water side of life.
