Chiller Plant Verification
Verify your chiller performance and face economic challenges head on. Specialized in air and water-cooled chillers, Hill York helps you discover ways to SAVE MONEY ON ENERGY CONSUMPTION!
- Most owners of chilled water systems are paying too much for their cooling.
- Most chillers aren’t operating close to their published design performance.
- Chiller performance changes significantly with even small changes in chilled water flow, condenser water flow or outside air temperatures.
- Even new chillers are probably not running at their commissioned performance.
In an effort to reduce wasted energy costs and and encourange sustainabilty, Hill York, through its hygreen Energy Solutions Group, is partnering with facilities managers, owners, and property managers to provide cost efficient performance testing/verification of both air- and water-cooled chillers.
An increasing number of Hill York’s existing clients have inquired about how to maximize their equipment performance when servicing, retrofitting or design/building HVAC systems for their facility. For 75 years and counting, they have turned to us to create budget-minded, customized energy solutions to solve their most costly facility management issues.
What is the Verification process?
The Verification Process involves an accurate assessment of the actual performance of an existing chiller, using calibrated, NIST-traceable instrumentation to measure the electric power input and thermal energy output of the machine.
Those instruments include accurate portable ultrasonic flow meters with temperature sensing, to measure total BTUs, and utility-grade KW meters to obtain specific chiller power requirements over a wide range of operating conditions.
By measuring and recording the chiller’s electrical power (KW); chilled water flow, supply and return temperatures; condenser water flow, supply and return temperatures; and outside air temperature and dew point, a profile of the chiller’s actual performance can be determined. Refrigerant pressures and saturation temperatures can also be measured.
Overview: Determine Chiller Efficiency
This process involves an accurate assessment of the actual performance of an existing chiller, using calibrated, NIST-traceable instrumentation to measure the electric power input and thermal energy output of the machine.
Targets: Chiller Plants with and without thermal energy storage
For a minimal investment Hill York will verify the performance of your air and water-cooled chillers and provide you a detailed report of efficiency findings.
