    That reminds me of my first chiller service call... ok, it wasn't that long ago, 6 years maybe.
    It was a 1200 ton CVHA that was surging at a hospital. I got the you're not so and so or the other so and so. I said yeah, you got me.
    Looked at it, loaded with air and surge starting around 50%. The chief said I needed to add refrigerant, I said no, you have air.
    Had our vapor reclaimer delivered and hooked up to the purge line with a 1/2" hose. Few hours later had it a 90% doing 10 on each side with great approach numbers. He asked how much I put in, I said nothing. NOW he doesn't question me anymore. Sadly, it got retired last year.

    I ike that color red the best.
    There is only one truly right way to do something, but there are thousands of wrong ways to varying degrees to do it.
    So the question is: If you don't do it right, then how wrong is it going to be???

    My biggest encounter with CVHE was when i worked for Trane and my manager said 'pop to a site, chiller nuisance tripping on overload', spent 3 weeks there, both impellers split wide open, had to bore out the impeller hub with pneumatic drill to collapse the impellers to get them out of the casting, surprise was, thinking ok I will make a list of parts required, clear off and come back in a few months, but, customer had all parts in stock ! there for 2 weeks stripping and rebuilding it. Wasn't the chillers fault then either , failure was due to a couple of stupid things, DOL starter, anti-re-cycle timer stuck in ON position and a broken flow switch, split both impellers due to transient torque from chattering starter !!

    How is it that this post survived the "we lost everything back to 6-2017" crash?

    Is that an ice maker with a dual evaporator? Looks like an Enwave plant inHouston.
