Is It Time to Plan for a New Industrial Chiller System?

Life of Industrial Chillers Varies Among the Types

For anyone who is a novice when it comes to chiller systems, there is a lot of information that can be overwhelming. Just looking at the type and age of your chiller system is a good place to start as found on When temperatures are cool or cold, it may be the perfect time to replace a building’s cooling system. Planning a replacement does take time and planning. The team at J.C. Younger (JCY) is here to help.

Types of Industrial Chillers

The three types of chillers are air-cooled, water-cooled and evaporative condensed units. The age of chillers can vary between 10 and 25+ years depending on its sub-type and use.

For every type of chillers, there are four subtypes to include reciprocating, centrifugal, screw-drive, and absorption chillers. Not sure if you have the best type for your needs? J.C. Younger will explain if you need a different chiller type.

When the Obvious is Unavoidable – New Equipment and the Benefits

If your chiller system is more than twenty-years-old, it is time to evaluate its replacement. Continuing unexpected repairs is a definite sign to begin the planning process. Energy efficiency is a big factor in replacing an old chiller system. Along with the added benefits of cost saving rebates, technology has introduced “predictive maintenance.” Knowing that parts are not properly functioning will help in equipment failures. Eco-friendly refrigerants are now being used that will help in the reduction of gases affecting our environment.
