A coworker of mine recently had the unfortunate experience of losing 80 percent of her e-mails because her e-mail box somehow became corrupt on the network server. The Information Technology department tried for two days to retrieve the correspondence, but to no avail. It will probably be months from now before she pieces together the missing information. Surely, there are items that she will have forgotten completely and clients to whom she will never reply. Could this fiasco been avoided if there was a more efficient e-mail system in place?
What would happen if your process chiller malfunctioned to the degree of my coworker’s e-mail system? While the majority of industrial water chillers are dependable machines, additional redundant measures may be required if any malfunction jeopardizes production and profitability. In any standard chiller, a refrigerant leak in the evaporator, condenser or piping can stop production for hours or even days. The same is true if the refrigeration compressor breaks a valve or suffers a burnt-out motor.
