    Chiller

    York vs. Trane, which one makes a better liquid screw chiller.

    Trane definitely...but I'm a little biased.

    the Flugger Valve Company dabbled in screw machines YEARS ago but they made them too good...never did fail and no replacement parts were neccessary so they stopped making them. too bad really. I would love to have had the opportunity to rebuild just one of them. all of them are still running today from what I hear.
    Have you ever noticed that geese walk around like they are drunk and trying not to get a public intox ticket?

    I've used an open loop 2.5 ton Versatec in Southeast Michigan since 2002

    I've used the Versatec (VXV030) since the house was built in 2002. The only issues I have had with it are due to the open loop. When it is super cold out the unit has to flow anyway or the discharge will freeze up and the unit will thermally cut off. It works w/o the em heat until it is below 5 degrees F for several days. I have a separate wood stove for the backup, the 8kw backup is still in the box I also have the desuperheater setup. I think I've been saving money, but as it was a new install in a custom house there is no really sure way to check, but if the propane truck going to my neighbors is any indication, I think I am still ahead Consumers Energy bill averages about $200 / mo for all useage in the house kept at 73-74 year round

    We still make 23xR Centrifugals. We won't carry a full maintenace contract on the obsolete XL (e"X"tra "L"abor) machines due to the old slide valve issues. The new 30XW compressor is like a smaller beefed up version of the 23xL compressor mounted on a chiller designed like the 30HX. Less noise higher capacity range.
    Refer all arguments to the wife, she's better at it.
