120 square metres of our factory are dedicated to a fully equipped test center in order to test our chillers by simulating the environmental conditions of the chambers they will be placed in. The new test bench is able to provide a climatically controlled room for air cooled chiller up to a maximum ambient temperature of 52 °C and a minimum of 0 °C. Thanks to 400 solar panels connected to the system, we have increased electric capacity up to 316 kW, saving 33.7% of energy costs. Moreover, we have introduced dry-cooler units on the top of the test centre, in order to recycle the heat produced during the tests and increase the ambient temperature control: this way we can maintain the desired temperature, ensuring precise and reliable tests. It is also possible to test unit at very low evaporation temperatures (-25 °C) and with high capacity (1.2 MW air and 2.2 MW water): this is achievable thanks to the installation of a glycol circuit and of new pumps and manual mixing valves. The computer system enables many operations that can maximize the efficiency and the reliability of the tests performed:
- computerized control of the work process of the unit in accordance with the Eurovent regulation;
- record of the transient load;
- self-positioning of the system according to the conditions provided by the project.
Moreover, the computer system enables the acquirement of data and videos that are posted on a production box where the production manager and his staff can always check the operating conditions of the unit. Data and videos are also transmitted to the meeting room, where we can discuss, together with the client, the functioning and the capacity of the machine.
Our Aftersales Department also provides:
The weighted averages of plants operation are monthly and yearly reported, by recording cooling capacity, electric power consumption, heat load demand and efficiency, other than statistical data on alarms. This way, it is possible to analyze the plant efficiency and to anticipate potential maintenance problems.
Notification messages about check and maintenance operations are sent automatically to our clients and to our Aftersales Department. The frequency of maintenance visits and notification messages is POSITIVELY RELATED to the size of the unit. These operations are important for the proper start up and use of the unit.
Together with the MONTHLY REPORT, our clients can visualize a small screen with the details about the data transfer generated by the client (remote connections via ONBOARD) and by the unit (alarms messages, status and other notifications).
Every cost deriving from the unit is at Geoclima’s expense within the warranty period of the unit. The clients only have to pay the amount deriving from their remote connections via ON-BOARD and through GSM, and, to do so, they will simply have to charge their credit and use the ON-BOARD for remote connections.
The ON-BOARD licenses are always free (clients only have to pay for the FIRST installation of the software). The Aftersales Department is always at our clients’ disposal providing full technical support, always FREE of charge.
