Morning Brett, Time, and the regular gruppies.
Been busy. Got tired of being laid off back in January. UA787 threw me on the out of work list and I got picked up by a commercial AC/print process chiller shop. Love it. Easier on the body than banging in cases and banks. Was kinda nervous starting in a service position after being an installer for like 2 years but slowly all the things Ive learned in school have been coming back.
Its great. Got my own service truck, full uniforms paid for, work phone and pager. Boss is great, journeys a good guy. If I need stuff its not a two week wait its there at the beginning of the shift. Plus we do a lot of print shops as I stated before. They use micro chillers for cooling the rollers on the presses. Basically as it was explained to me: Ink becomes more viscous with a rise in temperature. Warmer ink will apply in a lighter shade than colder ink would. So they use the chiller to keep the ink and press at a constant temperature which results in the ink applying in a constant shade and hue. I just do a lot of maintenance for now (washing coils, belts, filters, pulleys, flushing/cleaning chiller reservoir tanks) but Im slowly getting dunked into no cool calls.
So between the new job, trying to move out of this crap hole where I am, and trying to get the gf back to post secondary, this has been the first moment in....months? That ive had time to drop in lol.
Anyone wanna know more about the process chillers?
