Poorly maintained chiller components are less efficient and so are more damaging to the environment. Therefore, better trained engineers in the cooling industry are having a beneficial effect on reducing CO2 emissions.
Environmental training courses are running at various locations in the United Kingdom. One of them is at The Maximus School of Chillers at the head office of Maximus Chillers in Droylsden, Manchester. A spokesman from the company said “training is being given for chiller engineers this week on how to service the components of chillers. This lowers the demand for electricity” The training courses at the various centres vary in length from one to three days. An example of the industry knowledge being developed on these courses can be found by following this link https://maximuschillers.com/news/category/chiller-components/ Maximus Chillers are an independent chiller service company with customers mainly in the North West of the UK. As their industry is specialised, they also have a network of customers around the world. Chiller servicing are the procedures and repairs that are carried out to maintain and extend the life of a chiller.
The other opinion popular in the cooling industry is that it is better to replace an inefficient chiller with a new one. It can only be justified if a chiller is at the end of its life. This is because of the significant amount of CO2 emissions that are produced in the manufacture of a new chiller. Chillers that have some lifespan left in them, but also have inefficient parts can be retrofitted with updated parts.
In either case, there has been an increasing demand from end users that engineers are highly trained and certificated. A better knowledge of environmental issues in the industry leads to better work practices. These work practices are inspected by customers as part of their environmental policy.
