1.4 - rigging
Check the weight of the chiller by referring to the contract
specifications and then choose and use suitable wires and
shackles. To lift the chiller use the four holes provided at the
corners of the lower tube sheet. Note that the angle of the wires
should be 60° maximum, as shown in the figure below. Refer to
the specification drawings and exhibit LB.
1.6 - Placing chiller on the foundation
Refer to the specification drawings and exhibit LC - Foundation. Set
the chiller on the foundation bolt positions.
1.7 - Levelling
Fill a clear vinyl hose with water and check there are no
air bubbles in the hose.
Using point A as reference point, measure the difference
in the water level at the other points (B, C and D).
The levelling calculation is as shown below:
L: Chiller length
W: Chiller width
1.5 - Moving the chiller
If the chiller needs to be moved, use of a fork-lift truck is
recommended. The wire should be connected as shown in the
Note that in the figure below there are four levelling check
points on the chiller, labeled A, B, C and D. These check
points are designated by three punch markers on the tube
sheet or shell of the lower shell.
