    Water Chiller Hire for Hospital- A Customer Success Story

    The Challenge;

    When this Trust needed chiller hire for hospital buildings they turned to ACR for a fast effective solution.

    The hospital had been having problems with their roof mounted fixed chiller. They needed a temporary replacement quickly to maintain operation of this important facility. The chilled water feeds a chilled beam system which air conditions the building.

    The Solution;

    ACR recommended an direct like for like replacement water chiller hire at 220kw. It was proposed that the chiller be mounted at ground level for fast, economical installation- a crane lift to the roof would be expensive and time consuming. It was also unclear if a suitable load tested position could be authorised quickly.

    Mounting the chiller at ground level presented its own problems in terms of the pipe-work installation but it was decided that this was the preferred option.

    A 3″ rubber pipe-work system installed to connect the temporary chiller to the clients access points in the roof plant-room. Using a cherry picker the hose was run down the side of the building and attached using feature grills for support- padding was used to prevent damage around the fixings.

    The temporary pipe-work was connected to isolated 100mm flanges and adapted down to accommodate the 3″ hosing with Camloc connectors.

    The temporary chilled water pipe-work was manually filled to prevent air entering the clients system. Gradual opening of the clients valves allowed the pressure-set to pressurise the system before fully opening to complete the circuit.


    The completed system was tested and commissioned at full load- no problems were encountered and the system was left fully operational within 8 hours of arrival on-site.

    A good days work.
