Why Do Reciprocating Chillers Need Maintenance?

Basically for the same reasons any mechanical system needs it. Maintenance is the ideal method of ensuring your equipment operates as it was intended to and the best way to protect your investment. Whether your chillers are used for building cooling, process chilling, or a custom application, the odds are high that you rely on them at all times. And while they can perform well in most conditions, that consistency of use takes its toll over time.

General wear is the leading cause of downtime and poor performance—things that effective maintenance will either mitigate, or completely prevent. In short, you want your chiller equipment to operate well and reliably, and maintenance is the way to ensure that happens.

How to Maintain Reciprocating Chillers

Keeping reciprocating chiller equipment in order and good condition isn’t necessarily complex, but it requires in-depth understanding and an adherence to thoroughness. Moving components including pistons, air or water cooling and exhaust systems, crankshafts, and more all must be inspected routinely. Additionally, refrigerant must be checked for contaminants and potential leaks, and electrical safety needs to be ensured.
