Temporary chiller hire keeps factory operational following temperature surge

Andrews Chiller Hire was recently drafted in to assist a global defence contractor after receiving an urgent enquiry for temporary cooling to restore conditions within their factory.

With summer temperatures soaring, our client was struggling to maintain a comfortable environment inside their machining workshops, causing production to grind to a halt for safety reasons. Usually operating 24 hours a day, the mechanical jigs were actually warping due to the heat and so addressing the problem quickly was of critical importance.

East Anglian sewage treatment works kept operational by Andrews Chillers

During the summer heatwave, a large regional water company sought temporary cooling equipment to assist them with reducing the temperatures of their combined heat and power engines.

The engines in question are used to generate the electricity and power that runs our client’s sewer treatment system – underlining the importance of them staying online at all times. During the lengthy hot spell, the engines were beginning to overheat which put the equipment at risk of failure and meant an immediate solution was required.

Sewer works in Reading kept online by Andrews Chillers

When one of the country’s largest sewage plants suffered mechanical failure on their processing site, a swift reaction was vital to ensure an environmental health hazard was avoided. Circulation pumps – which push waste water through the works – had begun to falter, and this was attributed to the hot summer weather.

If the sewage wasn’t treated properly it would cause an outflow into the river nearby and have the potential to cause far-reaching damage. An immediate solution was therefore required.

Emergency chiller hire keeps vital healthcare amenities online

In hospitals and other healthcare environments, it is absolutely critical that medical equipment is kept at the correct temperature to ensure it remains functional and fit for purpose. When cooling equipment fails, it can have devastating repercussions for operational efficiency and delay patients awaiting much-needed treatment.

One of Kent’s largest hospitals was recently under pressure to source alternative air conditioning when their site chiller broke down without warning. This unforeseen scenario left the facility at risk of being unable to offer the required levels of care to hundreds of patients, meaning an urgent chiller hire solution was needed immediately.

Andrews Chillers replace faulty unit on waste production site

A leading waste-to-product company in the Aylesbury area recently encountered a problem after some site equipment broke down unexpectedly. One of their anaerobic digestion plants stopped functioning at full capacity and consequently began processing waste at 50°C – too hot for the bacteria to produce gas.

The company needed to reduce the temperature of waste to no more than 40°C, with approximately 90,000 litres of waste processed on a typical day. They then contacted Andrews Chillers to provide a solution that could act as a stand-in until the faulty permanent unit was replaced.

Telecoms provider seeks server room cooling

In recent years, companies delivering broadband and telephony services have become increasingly reliant upon modern hardware and operational technology. Of this, electronic servers are arguably the most important component and perform the requests of numerous programmes within any given organisation.

So when these are at risk of overheating, cooling equipment is immediately required to ensure vital computers remain online. One of Europe’s largest telecommunications businesses was faced with this possibility at its Berkshire-based data centre, meaning an instant solution was needed.

International mobile phone company seeks urgent cooling

A global telecommunications company required temporary chiller equipment at their UK headquarters while an existing air conditioning system underwent repair. Extensive maintenance had to be carried out over a two day period, but cooling was needed throughout in order to keep a vital server room online.

Andrews Chiller Hire was contacted regarding a solution which was designed and installed over a two day period. Security and access issues meant the project’s implementation took longer than usual, and this was exacerbated by the fact the building was still in use.
