LOWERING REFRIGERANT LEAK RATES
There seems to be a growing trend with modern Chiller Manufacturers to directly mount Pressure Relief Valves to suction and discharge lines. More-over to actually mount Dual Port Pressure Relief Valves with little or no support directly to Suction and Discharge Lines.
It comes as no surprise to us here at Orlando when our customers ask for ‘A Fix’ to the endless pipe fractures on or around these heavy assemblies where they connect to the pipework. We employ our tried and tested method of relocation of the Pressure Relief Valves away from suction and discharge lines. We employ lockable Single Port Isolation Valves instead of the Dual Port Valves saving space, time and material expense.
The most important savings, which really should be the responsibility of the manufacturer’s in better design, is the COe Tonnes Savings due to lower refrigerant leak rates through well thought out engineering solutions and materials used; yet still complying with BS EN378 Directives (F-Gas). We use Anaconda’s to isolate the damaging transmitted vibration, mounted parallel to the compressor’s crankshaft for maximum protection.
