This course is intended to provide attendees with a "systems" approach to maintaining and diagnosing problems involving chilled water piping systems from a service perspective. It will show technicians and supervisors how Trane utilizes water flows to obtain efficient chiller operation. The course will also discuss water system conditions that can be detrimental to efficient operation and possibly damaging to system components. Students will take flow measurements in a laboratory setting, using recommended tools and techniques to determine chilled water system performance. Chilled water system types such as decoupled loop, variable-primary flow and others will be discussed.
Upon completion of this course, participants should be able to
- Demonstrate an understanding of the water principles as applied to a chilled water system.
- Calculate the loop size in a chilled water system in order to understand and prevent short loop issues.
- Measure and verify water flow on a simple chilled water system using a variable frequency drive.
- Calculate water flow in a system using various methods.
- Given the necessary tools, service literature and personal protective equipment (PPE); properly log multiple chillers in our hands-on lab.
- Using operating pumps to calculate flow and then plot changes of flow using a balancing valve.
- Calculate unit capacity on a chiller by using proper tools and methods.
Our programs use a variety of assessment methods to measure learning, from pre and post tests, to classroom activities, quizzes and workshops.
