Smardt’s water cooled chiller range – 200 kW through 4 MW - is designed for a 30-year operating life, with lifetime operating costs the lowest in the market.
No oil, flooded shell-and-tube evaporation, low power consumption, low maintenance costs (even lower with remote monitoring) and high reliability with only one main moving part.
Smardt work hard to achieve simplicity of design and operation – reflected in low operating costs, and supported by the integration of electronic expansion valves and the use of load balancing valves at very low loads.
Field reliability since 2002’s introduction has been outstanding – not surprising when you consider that some 80% of all chiller problems in the field are due to failures in compressor oil return.
The growing fraternity of Smardt-trained engineers and technicians report that total maintenance costs for oil-free chillers run at well under half the costs of traditional lubricated chillers. This assessment may be very conservative.
Always important in minimizing operating costs, service access is swift and simple, as is access to operating history through remote monitoring. Operating history, compressor and chiller set points are all accessible remotely by trained and authorized service personnel.
Custom design and production capacity
The group’s design engineers are happy to resolve special equipment design challenges for you.
High-efficiency direct expansion condensing units, heat recovery and free cooling applications can all be supplied competitively, as can special materials for use in aggressive environments.
Marine water boxes, corrosion protection and other options are available and can be explored on request.
Use of multiple compressors allows unusual redundancy safeguards; however, if multiple circuits are indicated, these can be designed in and supplied.
