Emergency Solution Puts Production Back On Track

The Client –

Midlands Based Plastic Product Manufacturer

The Challenge –

Chiller Breakdown

The Solution –

Temporary Chiller Hire

A plastics manufacturer based in the Midlands turned to Aqua’s hire division when they encountered an emergency breakdown scenario with the Chiller unit on their plastic thermoforming production line.

For clients working within a 24/7 manufacturing facility, equipment breakdown can have disastrous consequences. Any threat of interruption to production can cost heavily in downtime, loss of revenue and even financial penalties. At Aqua Hire we fully understand the challenges our clients face. Our extensive knowledge of the chiller market enables us to arrange a temporary hire solution to site quickly and efficiency, getting that all important production back on line.

Aqua supplied a 300kW Chiller hire unit and flexible hosing which linked to the client’s existing weir tank. This, used in conjunction with a standby pump, enabled the chilled water to be recirculated around the tank, restoring the process cooling. The problem with the malfunctioning chiller could then be further investigated whilst production continued unheeded.

Our hire solution included:

  • 300kW chiller
  • Flexible temporary pipework
  • Full technical system design analysis
  • Installation services

In addition to supplying the short-term hire chiller, the Aqua technical team have undertaken a full review of the thermoforming plant’s process cooling system, giving the client longer term options which will include building additional redundancy into the design.

Senior Design and Project Manager, Shaun Lancaster explains: “Aqua’s sales and hire divisions work hand in hand which enables us to be able to offer the customer the very best solution every time. This is a great example of how short term chiller hire has resolved the client’s immediate issue and given them breathing space to consider the possibilities longer term.”
