Properly cleaning and maintaining chiller systems may be even more important this year, says cleaning systems manufacturer Goodway Technologies, Stamford, Conn., because some facilities may have experienced periodic shutdowns or closures over the past year and a half.

Chiller maintenance is important because chiller tubes are susceptible to the buildup of scale and other sediments and residue. If a chiller has to work harder to reach the desired output, it will require more power and increase energy costs.
