Emergency Chiller Hire

Crisis averted: Andrews Sykes tackles bitumen emergency

Andrews Sykes has never been a stranger to unique and time-sensitive challenges. Recently, we encountered a particularly pressing issue when a Manchester-based fuel quality and tank risk mitigation company found themselves in a dire emergency. A devastating fire had ravaged their bitumen plant, resulting in ruined supplies that needed immediate attention.

The first order of business was to swiftly eliminate the cold air bitumen from the silo to prevent any further complications. To tackle this daunting task, we devised a truly innovative approach. Our team recommended the utilisation of a 150 kW chiller, coupled with a 100 kW air handler and 600 mm of ducting, to create a controlled cooling environment. The ultimate goal was to reduce the temperature of the bitumen, causing it to solidify and become more manageable for extraction.

Server room air conditioning failure at military base

A military base in East Anglia recently had a communication malfunction due to a problem with the air conditioning unit in their server room. The unit had provided temperature control for the server rooms of a famous Army Regiment. The extreme heat resulted in the computers overheating and shutting down. Fortunately, Andrews Chiller Hire was just a call away and assisted the barracks immediately.

A specialist from Andrews arrived on site to assess the problem. This was swiftly followed by the delivery and installation of the equipment. We provided one 30kW Chiller and three 15kW air handling units. Our solution was to place the 30kW chiller outside the building and connect it to a circuit of three 15 KW air handlers placed around the server room, to achieve maximum climate control. These units are fitted with fan speed controllers and internal condensate pumps for ease of use and maximum efficiency.

Considering last year at Lytham the biggest problem was a virtually constant deluge of rain and unrelenting wind, to have to deal with extreme heat was hard to foresee
