GENERAL INFORMATION
INTRODUCTION
Remcor “CH” Series Refrigerated Recirculating Water Chillers are designed to provide a continuous flow of
clean cooling water at a constant temperature and to handle a variety of closed loop and tank cooling applications.
The CH consists of a refrigeration system with associated operating controls housed in a sturdy sheet metal
cabinet. A standard pump and reservoir package provides a complete self-contained water cooling and circulating system.
CH Chillers are designed to operate in a clean laboratory or industrial environment where ambient temperatures
range from 40F to 110F. Once properly installed, the CH Chiller will run virtually maintenance free and provide
a constant supply of cooling liquid to the application.
NOTE: Please read through this manual before starting the chiller.

SPECIFICATION NOTES
1. The figures for power and cooling capacity are listed for air-cooled units with a circulation temperature of
68 F, and ambient temperature of 80F and standard pump.
2. Cooling capacity will be affected as follows: Derate 17% for 50 Hz operation. Derate 1% for each F drop
in recirculating temperature. Derate .5% for each F increase in ambient temperature. Optional pumps will
decrease net cooling capacity.
3. The operating water temperature range for water is 40F (5C) to 100F (38C). If use of other fluids or
temperatures are required, the Remcor Technical Support Department must be contacted so the appropriate ranges can be set.
4. Water-cooled units require about 20% less input power.
5. All CH Chillers are thoroughly tested before leaving the REMCOR factory to ensure that each unit meets
these specifications prior to shipment.
WARNING: Never operate the Chiller with the panels removed. Always use the power
switch to turn off the Chiller when it is not being used. Always ensure that all air inlets and
outlets are free from obstruction.

INSTALLATION
LOCATION
Install the Chiller indoors in a well ventilated area where ambient temperatures will never fall below 40F or rise
above 110F. To obtain optimum cooling capacity, the ambient temperature should be 80F or below.
Standard CH Chiller have air-cooled condensers. On air-cooled units it is important that the air intake and discharge are not obstructed. Avoid hot air discharge from other equipment or enclosed areas where heat build-up
could cause a significant rise in ambient temperatures. A minimum of two feet of space on all four sides of the
Chiller will be sufficient to prevent obstruction. Water-cooled units should be located near a water source and
drain.

ELECTRICAL
All wiring must conform to the National Electric Code and any applicable local codes. The Chiller must be
PERMANENTLY wired by means of electrical conduit to a properly fused disconnect of proper amperage or
wired to a properly rated power cord and plugged into an outlet with the appropriate disconnect and amperage
rating. The electrical junction box located on the upper rear of the Chiller, includes a four-terminal strip for power
supply connections The DATA PLATE, located beside the junction box, indicates the actual phase, voltage and
amperage for each Chiller.
After the electrical connections are made, power must be supplied to the Chiller for a period of 12 hours (with
control switched off) to allow the compressor crankcase heater to warm the compressor lubricant.
CAUTION: On three phase applications, it is important that the rotation of the pump, when
supplied, is correct. Running the pump in reverse for more than a few seconds will result in
permanent pump damage. When the pump is running, shaft rotation must match the
direction indicated on the pump housing. If the rotation is incorrect, reverse two of the three
incoming power supply leads. The Phase Protection/3–Phase Monitor Option will prevent the
pump from operating backwards. See the option description.
Phase Protection / 3–Phase Option
The 3–Phase Monitor detects phase loss, low voltage, and phase reversal by continuously monitoring the
3–Phase power lines for abnormal conditions. When correct voltage and phase rotation are applied, the internal
relay will energize. A fault condition will de–energize the relay. When the fault is corrected, the monitor will automatically reset. Both Trip and Norm condition indicators are provided on the relay to aid in adjustment and system trouble–shooting.
This control is located in the enclosure labeled “Monitor” on top of the electrical box.
Phase Protection / 3–Phase Option Adjustment
The following procedure will allow the 3–Phase Monitor to achieve a trip point just below the nominal phase-tophase voltage, where the unit is applied.
Rotate the adjustment control fully clockwise, or until the red (Trip) indicator illuminated. Slowly rotate the adjustment control in a counter-clockwise direction, just until the green (Norm) indicator illuminates. At this point,
the 3–Phase Monitor is the most sensitive to irregular power line conditions. If nuisance tripping occurs, turn the
control slightly further counter–clockwise.
PLUMBING
Follow standard plumbing practices and local codes in making water connections. The Chiller inlet and outlet
connections are 3/4–inch or 1–inch FPT. Flexible hose and fittings are recommended for plumbing the system.
A No. 20 mesh strainer should be installed on the Chiller inlet to prevent foreign particles from entering the system and should be cleaned monthly. Lines should be routed with as few bends as possible. Prevent lines from
running near radiators, hot water pipes, etc. Any lengths of tubing that are exposed to high ambient temperatures should be insulated to prevent condensation and/or significant liquid heat loss.
Water-Cooled Condensers
Water-cooled units must be connected to a source of tap water of chilled water and a drain. The connections for
the water supply (3/4–inch FPT or 1–inch FPT) are located on the rear of the unit. These units are supplied with
a WATER REGULATING VALVE that allows only the required amount of water to pass through the condenser
for a given heat load. The water flow through the condenser can vary from 0 when the cooling system is in the
“OFF” cycle to approximately 5.0–gpm at maximum rated loads for 1–1/2 ton units and approximately 20–gpm
at maximum rated loads for 7–1/2 ton units. This valve is factory set to operate where the water supply temperature ranges from 50F (10C) to 80F (27C) with a supply pressure of 30 to 60–PSIG. For temperatures or
pressure outside these ranges, contact our Technical Service Department for assistance in “field” adjustment of
the valve. Once the system as been properly plumbed, it is important that the circulation system be filled with
water.

91961
Chiller with Reservoir
The reservoir can be filled by removing the water fill cap located on the upper rear of the Chiller (See Fluid Recommendations page). After ensuring that the drain valve is closed, fill the reservoir via the full port with clean
water until the water level sight glass on the front of the unit indicates “FULL” the fill cap should then be reinstalled before operation begins.
Auto Refill Option
If the Chiller is provided with the Auto Refill Option, install 1/4–inch or 1/2–inch tubing from the auto refill fitting
located on the lower rear of the Chiller to a fresh water supply line. The Chiller reservoir will fill with water automatically and the proper reservoir level will always be maintained.
Chiller without Reservoir
The Chiller and system piping should be filled with clean water ensuring that all air is purged from the system.

START UP
WATER FLOW START-UP
Chiller with Pump
It is important to check the pump rotation on the three phase units. Remove the lower side panel to expose the
pump. Turn the pump power switch to the “ON” position for a few seconds. Observe the motor shaft to ensure
that it is turning in the direction indicated by the arrow located on the pump housing. If the rotation is incorrect,
reverse two of the three incoming power supply leads at the terminal strip. After changing the leads, check the
pump rotation.
NOTE: Running the pump in reverse for more than a few seconds will result in permanent
pump damage.
After ensuring that the system piping is free from obstruction and that all valves are open, turn the pump power
switch to the “ON” position. The pump power indicator should illuminate, indicating that the pump is operating.
All Chillers with pumps are provided with a pressure regulating valve on the pump discharge. This valve is preset at the factory to ensure that system pressure does not exceed the capabilities of the pump motor and/or piping. If this valve requires adjustment, please contact the factory for proper setting procedure and pressures.
A flow meter and throttling valve can be added in the chiller inlet line in order to monitor and/or adjust the flow
rate through the Chiller.
Once the flow has been established, the thermostat can be adjusted to the desired set-point.
Chiller without Pump
A flow meter and throttling valve can be added in the Chiller inlet line in order to monitor and/or adjust the flow
rate through the Chiller.
Once the flow has been established, the thermostat can be adjusted to the desired set-point. See thermostat
adjustment.
THERMOSTAT ADJUSTMENT
Standard Thermostat
The following procedure should be followed to adjust the standard thermostat:
1. Push the “SET” button located to the right of the digital display. The current set-point will be displayed.
2. While holding the “SET” button, push the “UP” or “DOWN” button until the desired set-point is displayed.
3. Release “SET” button. The display will show the system water temperature. The set-point can be viewed at
any time by pressing the “SET” button.
The thermostat has a range that has been preset at the factory. The range is 40F (5C) to 100F (38C). If
operation outside of this range is required, please contact the Remcor Technical Service Department.

Differential Thermostat Option
If the Chiller is equipped with a DIFFERENTIAL THERMOSTAT, the air probe will need to be located where
ambient temperature is to be monitored. The set-point will be the temperature sensed by this probe. This setpoint can be check by pushing the “SET-POINT” button located on the upper right of the digital display. Releasing this button will display the system water temperature.
Cooling Start-Up
Once flow is established and the thermostat is set to the desired set-point, turn the control power switch to
“ON”. Ensure that the air is flowing in the left side (facing the control panel) and out the right side. If not, reverse
two of the three incoming power supply leads at the terminal strip. Once again, check for correct air flow. All
alarm indicators should be extinguished and the Chiller refrigeration system will cycle in order to maintain the
established set-point.
Re-check the reservoir level to ensure that it is ”FULL” (if so equipped) and add water if necessary.
The Chiller is now ready for normal operation.

MAINTENANCE
CAUTION: Disconnect electrical power before performing any of the following maintenance
procedures.
The Chiller will require very little normal maintenance.
1. On AIR-COOLED Chillers, the condenser fins should be cleaned by blowing compressed air through the
condenser from the fan side as required to eliminate any dirt or debris that may accumulate over time. This
can severely reduce the performance of the Chiller. Cleanable air filters are available as an option. Contact
the factory for information.
2. On AIR-COOLED Chillers the condenser fan motor should be lubricated every 6–months with a few drop
of SAE10 oil.
3. The pump motor should be lubricated with thirty drops of SAE20 oil once a year.
4. The circulation system should be drained and flushed periodically to avoid build-up and possible restriction of flow by contaminates.
5. The strainer at the Chiller inlet should be removed and cleaned monthly.

SERVICE
When servicing a REMCOR Chiller, it is important to note the information contained on the data plate located in
the upper rear of the unit.
If technical assistance is needed, the phone technician will need the Serial Number of your Chiller. That information is found on the Data Plate along with the model number, voltage requirements and refrigerant information.
The Serial Number is also needed when replacement parts are being ordered or for any warranty claims. See
CHILLER WARRANTY PAGE.

SAFETY CONTROLS
Each Chiller is provided with three standard safety controls. These controls are arranged in series in the control
circuit to automatically shut down the unit in the event that a condition exists which could be harmful to the refrigeration system components. This section includes a brief description of each control, its location and some
troubleshooting hints that may be helpful.
HIGH PRESSURE CONTROL (HPC)
This control prevents system operation in the event that the high side pressure exceeds 350 PSIG. If this occurs, check the following:
1. That the condenser is clean and that the air inlets and outlets are unobstructed.
2. That the ambient temperature at the chiller location is below 110F.
3. That the fan blade is rotating.
Press the reset button located on the front of the control to restart the chiller. This control is located in the upper
left hand corner of the electric box. If the control opens again, check the control setting with refrigeration
gauges. If the setting is correct, contact technical service department.
LOW TEMPERATURE CONTROL (LTC)
This control prevents system operation in the event that the fluid inside the evaporator falls below 35F. If this
occurs, check the following:
1. That the thermostat set point is set at 40F or greater.
2. That the flow through the system is greater than 2 gallons per minute.
This control is mounted in the lower left hand corner of the electric box. It automatically resets itself once the
water temperature is restored to 38F. The low temperature control may be adjusted for lower temperatures if a
glycol solution is used. Contact Technical Service Department for temperatures below those stated here (See
Fluid Recommendations page).
LOW PRESSURE CONTROL (LPC)
This control prevents system operation in the event that the low side pressure falls below 44 psi. If this occurs,
check the following:
1. That the thermostat set point is set at 40F or greater.
2. That the flow through the system is greater than 2 gallons per minute.
3. That no bubbles are present in the sight glass.
4. That water bypass valve allows flow through the Chiller in a “dead head” situation.
This control is located to the right of the high pressure control in the electric box. It automatically resets itself
once the low side pressure rises to approximately 64 psi. If the control opens again, check the control setting
with refrigeration gauges. If setting is correct, contact Technical Service Department.
