It was a suggestion of the moderator to post it here also!
I am investigating to use 19XR (5 MW) chillers in free-cooling mode. (thermosiphon)
Open the guide vanes and control the chilled water temperature by controlling the cooling water 3-way valve.
(To be used on cruise ships)
Has anybody any experience with this?
- How can i open the guide vanes without going into the controls test? In other words > how can I perform this through automation?
- Does the chiller accepts this without alarms?
- Is there any problem known with oil loss during free-cooling?
- What cooling capacity can be obtained in the free-cooling mode?
