    We are using Tyler for the reach-in medium & low temp units with R-404a.

    I just found the E2 manuel today...I'm going to read it from cover to cover and hopefully I'll pick up on it.

    I'll post some pics real soon! That will be great!

    THANK YOU SO MUCH TO ALL WHO"LL HELP ME OUT!!!!!!

    Cool Supermarket Refrigeration

    I live in Arizona. And the town I live in, Gilbert, is getting 2 new Super Targets in January. I will be the Store Building Specialist between the two stores.


    I just found the Einstein-2 manual and the Tyler service & installation booklets. I hope these will be helpful tools.

    * What are a few "common" problems that I will encounter when dealing with these Tyler rack systems running R-404a?
    And an E2 CPC.

    Any helpful hints...tricks...or stuff to watch out for????

    Can anyone give me a list of tools that I'll need. Excluding wrenches, screwdrivers, and common handtools.
    I mean specialty tools of the trade. THANK YOU SO SO MUCH!!!

    Email Me: steve.richardson@cox.net

    You're asking for something that can't be learned online.
    What exactly are your duties for Store Building Specialist?
    In that position ya need to delegate, like let the experienced Frigy's do the refrig, and find the right people in the other numerous trades required.
    Or are you just responsible for the refrigeration?
    Sounds scary if your asking for a list of tools needed.
    Did you lie on your application?

    I see by your other thread that you're just starting out!
    "Store Building Specialist" sounded pretty uppity, I take it you'll be doing install on a crew running pipe?

    Actually, I maintain general aspects of the building...i.e. lights, plumbing, PM's, safety issues, equipment. I am currently attending a Refrigeration Course and have the opportunity for a Refrigeration Tech position in the near future. THIS trade is what I am focused on and is why I've been reading in this forum. The only way those "frigy's" got to be "frigy's" is by learning and asking questions to those other Frigy's that had the experience...and they too learned from other Frigy's.

    So if you have any helpful info...please share it.

    Thank you for replying, I welcome all sides of this issue. Thanks again.

    Asta,

    Sounds interesting, that is the one thing that many large stores and chains lack, a person who knows enough of all the mechanical systems to keep things running smooth and economicaly (in house) most outsource up here. They seem to be more concerned about looks and sales and neglect the need for maintenance.
    But to learn the multitude of unimaginable non-refrigerating scenarios that might be presented to you and how to deal with them requires several years of late nights and on hand experience!
    Sounds like a good job, keep in mind a good market tech. can make $80-100G's. Don't do too much for too little!

    Talking WHAT UP COOLIO?

    Thanks for the info MCCOOL. Where abouts in the country do you live? And how long have been in refrigeration? And yes, Target Building services offers a Great Job with fair wages. I'm determined to "soak up" any knowledge that will help me understand how and why supermarket set-ups work. So when they stop working, I'll be able to fix it right.

    Thanks again for replying MC!

    I find the measure of a good Fridge Mechanic is not to "Fix" the problems, but to notice the small signs of a problem in the making rather than fixing the effect and not the true cause. Finding and repairing the cause is NOT something you learn online or for that fact in ANY school. School will give you the Basics and teach you how to approach systems. The eventual ability to look "Inside" a system without actually looking at anything other than the system vitals and know where the REAL issues are is what seperates the wanabe parts changers to the true "Mechanics".

    *What is the difference berween R-410a & R-404a ? Why is 410 so special??
