    Control Operation, Setup and Troubleshooting for RTAA Series R Air-Cooled Chiller Control Panel. UCM

    That is the title of the lit. It was published in 6-1-1992.

    I am curious why you have need of it if you were unsure what it pertained to.

    If you know theory and basic chiller ops., reading can teach you everything. I printed rtaa s.b.5 without logging in, so I guess anyone can do it.

    Majority of calls to these chillers I have found are due to oil problems but are not oil related as such , head pressure control to these chillers is essential, if you have failed fans etc you will have dramas.

    There are upgrades available for more aggressive fan staging if your ambient requires. Also uprades for exv's .

    Exv upgrade provides valves with site glass to view valve position similar to what you will see on a rthd .

    Upgrades

    The only problem with Trane's EXV upgrade package is you will have to change out all of the electronic expansion valves could be 2-4 valves depending on machine size and all the exv board(s). This is quite expensive if your only trying to gain control of head pressure at start up and don't have any exv issues. I had an RTAA 340 in a lab that was 100% outside air and after any shut down during the summer 95+ degrees with 99% humidity even the new chip for fan control wouldn't help. I just slowed down the chilled water reaction timer setting, problem solved.-GEO
    Once in a while everything falls into place and I am able to move forward, most of the time it just falls all over the place and I can't go anywhere-GEO

    I agree 100% . I wasn't commenting on exv upgrade being a solution to head pressure problems etc. Just trying to inform that there are upgrades available. However is soft loading the only option .

    Options, Opinions, Out to lunch

    Rover, no of course not. It is just in my case thats what worked for me. It is actually funny as Trane was out at this plant doing the start-up and their tech was "lost in space" because of this problem, His supervisor came out and it was more like Homer Simpson and the trailer park quartet trying to figure this one out. Their actual solution was to tie all of the fan contactor coils together at start-up and even that didn't work, when you have 96*F entering water.-GEO
