Retrofit of an Air-Cooled Chiller with an Oil-Less Centrifugal Compressor
County of San Diego's East County Family Resource Center Case StudyThe County of San Diego's East County Family Resource Center is a 22,000 sq ft office facility served by one 88-ton York air-cooled chiller (230 Volt, R-22) with two reciprocating compressors. The chiller had been riddled with problems since installation: compressor failures, excessive noise, and significant oil in the refrigerant. In April 2005, one of the reciprocating compressors failed again; the replacement cost was estimated to be $12,800. Rather than replace the compressor like for like, the chiller was retrofitted with one R-134a 80-ton oil-less centrifugal Turbocor compressor, a transformer to step the voltage from 230V to 480V, an electronic expansion valve (EXV), and a variable frequency drive to control the two condenser fans.
