Water Jet Chiller Technical Support-
Simple checks before you call.
- The first thing to check with your chiller and all chillers that are not working is to note what displays are listed on the main panel or note what the visual gauges show to you. Do this before you reset anything. This is the most valuable information for any service technician when you talk to them.
2. The chiller may not work because the incoming voltage is not correct or missing a phase. Brownouts can cause poor incoming voltage or a dropped leg. Check all fuses and incoming voltages to be sure that the main power is correct.
3. Confirm that the chiller tank is full and pump is circulating. No chiller should run if the pump is not running first. Flow related issues can occur. Another issue to check would be any Y strainers or filters that slow or stop the flow when blocked with debris.
4. The Water Jet / Cutting industry chillers are usually in harsh environments and can easily become clogged on both water side and the air cooled condenser side. Keeping them clean is very important.
5. Be sure that your chiller, if air cooled and inside, can breathe and the area where it runs is not over 100F. Most portable indoor chillers are not rated for overly high inlet air temperatures.
6. Water Jet chillers generally are cooling the exchangers that pressurize the water. These exchangers do not have to run much below 60F ever, so no need to over cool the fluid.
