    Chiller job from a few years back.

    Installed these chillers a few years back. Now we preform the maintenance on them. Just fixed a leak last week on the first chiller.

    Those carriers might rum better is they were painted mediteranian blue. Then the york spirit would soak in. just kidding. Looks like a real clean install. Plenty of clearance for stop majors

    Nice plant. Are those 19XRV's?
    • Electricity makes refrigeration happen.
    • Refrigeration makes the HVAC psychrometric process happen.
    • HVAC pyschrometrics is what makes indoor human comfort happen...IF the ducts AND the building envelope cooperate.


    A building is NOT beautiful unless it is also comfortable.

    I visited a plant yesterday that had three Carrier 19XL's converted with York drives and the Optiview panel. They also had a further mod that allowed the operator to run 55 degree tower water during winter operation, without oil hanging up in the condenser. I was very impressed with the entire conversion, and especially the Optiview panel.

    We are considering doing something similar with our 19XR's.

    I wish I had some pics of a machine that we work on at one of the universities. There are 2 steam drive units. One is 6000 Tons and the other is 8000 Tons. Just the coupling is worth $75k.They are York machines. Could you imagine punching the tubes on that
    There are alot of conversions out there with the York Drives with the optiview. They work so well. I have heard of some Trane vsd machines that they removed the trane controls and vsd's and retrofitted with york.
    A few years back we had an electrician rewire the motor on one and spun it backwards. Did not even confirm rotation. Think the bill on that one was in excess of $300k. And the most screwed up part about it is they didn't even fire the guy.

    Those Trane Duplex machines are incredible. I was in LaCrosse for a class last fall and they were building 50 of them for an indoor fully air conditioned golf course in Dubai.
