Introduction

General Description

McQuay type SeasonPak ® air cooled water chillers are complete, self-contained automatic refrigerating units that include the latest in engineering components arranged to provide a compact and efficient unit. Each unit is completely assembled, factory wired, evacuated, charged, tested and comes complete and ready for installation. Each unit consists of multiple air cooled condensers with integral subcooler sections, multiple accessible semi-hermetic single-screw compressors, replaceable tube multiple circuit shell-and-tube evaporator, and complete refrigerant piping. Liquid line components included are manual liquid line shutoff valves, charging valves, filter-driers, liquid line solenoid valves, sightglass/ moisture indicators, and electronic expansion valves. Other features include compressor heaters, an evaporator heater for low ambient water freeze protection, automatic one time pumpdown of refrigerant circuit upon circuit shutdown, and an advanced fully integrated microprocessor control system.

The electrical control center includes all safety and operating controls necessary for dependable automatic operation, (the high and low pressure controls and the chiller heater thermostat are external from the electrical

control center.) Thermal overload protected condenser fan motors are fused in all three conductor legs and started by their own three-pole contactors. Compressors are protected by solid state overload protection and over temperature protection. Field installed fused disconnect offers additional protection.

Inspection

When the equipment is received, all items should be carefully checked against the bill of lading to insure a complete shipment. All units should be carefully inspected for damage upon arrival. All shipping damage must be reported to the carrier and a claim must be filed with the carrier. The unit’s serial plate should be checked before unloading the unit to be sure that it agrees with the power supply available.

Physical damage to unit after acceptance is not the responsibility of McQuay International.

Note: Unit shipping and operating weights are available in the physical data tables.

Installation and Start-up

Note: Installation and maintenance are to be performed only by qualified personnel who are familiar

with local codes and regulations, and experienced with this type of equipment.

Sharp edges and coil surfaces are a potential injury hazard. Avoid contact with them.

Start-up by McQuayService is included on all units sold for installation within the USA and Canada.

Two week prior notification of start-up is required. The contractor should obtain a copy of the Start-up

Scheduled Request Form from the sales representative or from the nearest office of McQuayService.

Handling

Care should be taken to avoid rough handling or shock due to impact or dropping the unit. Do not push or pull the unit from anything other than the base, and block the pushing vehicle away from the unit to prevent damage to the sheetmetal cabinet and end frame (see Figure 1).

Never allow any part of the unit to fall during unloading or moving as this may result in serious damage.

Lift only from (8) base points as shown

Note: Number of fans may vary from this diagram, but lifting method remains the same.

Location

Care should be taken in the location of the unit to provide proper airflow to the condenser, minimizing effects on condensing pressure.

Due to the vertical condenser design of the ALS125A thru ALS380A chillers, it is recommended that the unit is oriented so that prevailing winds blow parallel to the unit length, thus minimizing the effects of condensing pressure on performance. If the unit is installed with no protection against prevailing winds it is recommended that wind baffles be installed.

Using less clearances than shown in Figures 6, 7 and 8 will cause discharge air recirculation to the condenser and could have a significant and detrimental effect on unit performance.

Service Access

Each end of the unit must be accessible after installation for periodic service work. Compressors, filterdriers, and manual liquid line shutoff valves are accessible on each side of the unit adjacent to the control box. High pressure and low pressure transducers are mounted on the compressor. The cooler barrel heater thermostat is located on the cooler. Compressor overloads, microprocessor, and most other operational, safety and starting controls are located in the unit control box.

On all ALS units the condenser fans and motors can be removed from the top of the unit. The complete fan/motor assembly can be removed for service. The fan blade and fan motor rain shield must be removed for access to wiring terminals at the top of the motor.

Disconnect all power to the unit while servicing condenser fan motors. Failure to do so may cause bodily injury or death.

Water Piping

Due to the variety of piping practices, it is advisable to follow the recommendations of local authorities.

They can supply the installer with the proper building and safety codes required for a safe and proper installation.

Basically, the piping should be designed with a minimum number of bends and changes in elevation to keep system cost down and performance up. It should contain:

1. Vibration eliminators to reduce vibration and noise transmission to the building.

2. Shutoff valves to isolate the unit from the piping system during unit servicing.

3. Manual or automatic air vent valves at the high points of the system. Drains at the low parts in the system.

4. Some means of maintaining adequate system water pressure (e.g., expansion tank or regulating valve).

5. Temperature and pressure indicators located at the unit to aid in unit servicing.

6. A strainer or some means of removing foreign matter from the water before it enters the pump. It should be placed far enough upstream to prevent cavitation at the pump inlet (consult pump

manufacturer for recommendations). The use of a strainer will prolong pump life and thus keep system performance up.

7. A strainer should also be placed in the supply water line just prior to the inlet of the evaporator.

This will aid in preventing foreign material from entering and decreasing the performance of the evaporator.

8. The shell-and-tube cooler has a thermostat and heating cable to prevent freeze-up, due to low ambient, down to -20°F (-28.8°C). It is suggested that the heating cable be wired to a separate 110V supply circuit. As shipped from the factory, it is factory wired to the control circuit. Any water piping to the unit must also be protected to prevent freezing.

9. If the unit is used as a replacement chiller on a previously existing piping system, the system should be thoroughly flushed prior to unit installation and then regular chilled water analysis and chemical water treatment is recommended immediately at equipment start-up.

10. The total water quantity in the system should be sufficient to prevent frequent “on-off” cycling. A reasonable minimum quantity would allow for a complete water system turnover in not less than 15 minutes.

11. In the event glycol is added to the water system, as an afterthought for freeze protection, recognize that the refrigerant suction pressure will be lower, cooling performance less, and water side pressure drop greater. If the percentage of glycol is large, or if propylene is employed in lieu of ethylene glycol, the added pressure drop and loss of performance could be substantial.

12. For operations requiring the ice mode feature, logic in MicroTech will adjust the freezestat to a pressure equivalent to 13.5°F (7.5°C) below the leaving evaporator water temperature. However, if a different freezestat pressure value is desired, the freezestat can be manually changed through

MicroTech. Refer to IM549 for additional information.

If a separate disconnect is used for the 110V supply to the cooler heating cable, it should be clearly marked so that it is not accidentally shut off during cold seasons.

Prior to insulating the piping and filling the system, a preliminary leak check should be made.

Piping insulation should include a vapor barrier to prevent moisture condensation and possible damage to the building structure. It is important to have the vapor barrier on the outside of the insulation to prevent condensation within the insulation on the cold surface of the pipe.

Flow Switch

A water flow switch must be mounted in either the entering or leaving water line to insure that there will be adequate water flow to the evaporator before the unit can start. This will safeguard against slugging the compressors on start-up. It also serves to shut down the unit in the event that water flow is interrupted to guard against evaporator freeze-up.

A flow switch is available from McQuay under ordering number 0017503300. It is a “paddle” type switch and adaptable to any pipe size from 1" (25mm) to 8" (203mm) nominal. Certain minimum flow rates are required to close the switch and are listed in Table 9. Installation should be as shown in Figure 15.

Electrical connections in the unit control center should be made at terminals 62 and 63. The normally open contacts of the flow switch should be wired between these two terminals. Flow switch contact quality must be suitable for 24 VAC, low current (16ma). Flow switch wire must be in separate conduit from any high voltage conductors (115 VAC and higher).

Water Connections

Water piping to the cooler can be brought up through the bottom of the unit or through the side between the vertical supports. The dimensional data on pages 20-23 gives the necessary dimensions and locations for all piping connections.

Note: On unit size 175A thru 204A there is a diagonal brace off of a vertical support which will

interfere with the water connection if brought in from the side. This brace can be removed, but only after the unit is in place.

Refrigerant Charge

All units are designed for use with HCFC-22 and are compatible with HCFC alternatives and are shipped with a full operating charge. The operating charge for each unit is shown in the Physical Data

Tables on pages 17-20.

Glycol Solutions

The system glycol capacity, glycol solution flow rate, and pressure drop through the cooler may be calculated using the following formulas and tables.

Note: The procedure below does not specify the type of glycol. Use the derate factors found in Table 10

for corrections when using Ethylene glycol and those in Table 11 for Propylene glycol.

1. Capacity — Cooling capacity is reduced from that with plain water. To find the reduced value multiply the chiller’s water system tonnage by the capacity correction factor to find the chiller’s capacity in the glycol system.

2. Flow — To determine flow (or delta-T) knowing delta-T

(or flow) and cap:

Glycol flow = 24 x cap (glycol) x flow factor delta-T

3. Pressure drop — To determine pressure drop through the cooler, when using glycol, enter the water pressure drop graph on page 13 at the actual glycol flow. Multiply the water pressure drop found there by the PD factor to obtain corrected glycol pressure drop.

4. To determine glycol system kW, multiply the water system kW by factor called Power.

Test coolant with a clean, accurate glycol solution hydrometer (similar to that found in service stations) to determine the freezing point. Obtain percent glycol from the freezing point table below. On glycol applications it is normally recommended by the supplier that a minimum of 25% solution by weight be used for protection against corrosion.

Do not use an automotive grade antifreeze. Industrial grade glycols must be used. Automotive antifreeze contains inhibitors which will cause plating on the copper tubes within the chiller evaporator. The type and handling of glycol used must be consistent with local codes.

Evaporator Water Flow and Pressure Drop

Balance the chilled water flow through the evaporator. The flow rates must fall between the minimum and maximum values shown in Table 12. Flow rates below the minimum values shown will result in laminar flow which will reduce efficiency, cause erratic operation of the electronic expansion valve and could cause low temperature cutouts. On the other hand flow rates exceeding the maximum values shown can cause erosion on the evaporator water connections and tubes.

Measure the chilled water pressure drop through the evaporator at field installed pressure taps. It is important not to include valves or strainers in these readings.

Variable chilled water flow through the evaporator while the compressor(s) are operating is not recommended. MicroTech control set points are based upon a constant flow and variable temperature.

Field Wiring

General

Wiring must comply with all applicable codes and ordinances. Warranty is voided if wiring is not in accordance with specifications. An open fuse indicates a short, ground, or overload. Before replacing a fuse or restarting a compressor or fan motor, the trouble must be found and corrected.

Copper wire is required for all power lead terminations at the unit and copper must be used for all other wiring to the unit.

ALS units may be ordered with main power wiring for either single or multiple point power connection.

If single point power connection is ordered, a single large power terminal block is provided and wiring within the unit is sized in accordance with the National Electrical Code. A single field supplied disconnect is required. An optional factory mounted transformer for the 115 volt control circuit may be provided.

If multiple point power wiring is ordered, two power connections (125 thru 204) and (300 thru 380) or three power connections (205 thru 280) are required and wiring within the unit is sized in accordance with the National Electrical Code. A separate circuit is required for the 115 volt control circuit. Separate field supplied disconnects are required for each electrical circuit.

It may be desirable to have the unit cooler heater on a separate disconnect switch from the main unit power supply so that the unit may be shut down without defeating the freeze protection provided by the cooler heater.

ALS unit compressors are single direction rotation compressors. For this reason proper phasing of electrical power is important. Electrical phasing must be A, B, C for electrical phases 1, 2 and 3

(A=L1,B=L2,C=L3). Units supplied with single point factory power connections will include one

MotorSaver

®

phase failure, phase reversal protective device that will prevent operation of the unit with incorrect power phasing. The MotorSaver is factory wired and tested. Do not alter the wiring to the

MotorSaver.

Multiple point power wired units will include two (125 thru 204) and (300 thru 380) or three (205 thru

280) MotorSaver safety controls (one for each power supply), and the contractor is cautioned to not apply power until the phasing is verified with a phase sequence meter.

Internal power wiring to the compressors for the single point versus the multiple point option are different. It is imperative that the proper field wiring be installed according to the way the unit is built.

Overload Dial Setting

For units with 1 contactor and 1 overload per compressor:

The Overload must be set at a “Must Hold Dial Setting” equal to 125% of the compressor RLA listed on the unit data plate.

For units with 2 contactors and 2 overloads per compressor:

The Overload must be set at a “Must Hold Dial Setting” equal to 125% of half the compressor RLA listed on the unit data plate.

Notes:

The “Must Trip Amps” is 12% higher than the “Must Hold Dial Setting”.

The accuracy of the Overload Setting is ±2%.

Electrical Data Notes

1. Allowable voltage limits:

Unit nameplate 208V/60Hz/3PH: 187V to 229V

Unit nameplate 230V/60Hz/3Ph: 207V to 253V

Unit nameplate 380V/60Hz/3Ph: 342V to 418V

Unit nameplate 460V/60Hz/3Ph: 414V to 506V

Unit nameplate 575V/60Hz/3Ph: 517V to 633V

2. Unit wire size ampacity (MCA) is equal to 125% of the largest compressor-motor RLA plus 100% of RLA of all other loads in the circuit including control transformer. Wire size ampacity for separate 115V control circuit power is 15 amps for ALS070A through ALS280A.

3. Compressor RLA values are for wire sizing purposes only but do reflect normal operating current draw at unit rated capacity. If unit is equipped with SpeedTrol condenser fan motors, the first motor on each refrigerant circuit is a single phase, 1 hp motor, with a FLA of 2.8 amps at 460 volts

(5.6 amps at 208/230 volts). If the unit is not equipped with SpeedTrol, the standard fan motor will be 1

1

2

hp, 3-phase (for ALS070A-280A except ALS204 which will be 2hp, 3-phase) with FLA as shown in the electrical tables. For ALS300A-380A the standard fan motor will be 2 hp, 3-phase.

4. Compressor LRA for reduced inrush start is for the first winding. If the unit is equipped with

SpeedTrol motors, the first motor on each refrigerant circuit is a single phase, 1 hp motor, with a

LRA of 7.3 amps at 460 volts (14.5 amps at 208/230 volts). If the unit is not equipped with

SpeedTrol, the standard fan motor will be 1

1

2

hp,

3-phase with a LRA as shown in the electrical tables.

5. Single point power supply requires a single disconnect to supply electrical power to the unit. This power must be fused.

6. Multiple point power supply requires two independent power circuits on ALS125A-ALS195A,

ALS300-ALS380 and three independent power circuits on ALS205A-ALS280A each with separate fused disconnects and a separate control circuit.

7. All field wiring to unit power block or optional nonfused disconnect switch must be copper.

8. Field wire size values given in tables apply to 75°C rated wire per NEC except for ALS185A-

ALS204A and ALS370A, ALS380A for 208V application or as noted.

9. Disconnect switches must be field supplied.

10. All wiring must be done in accordance with applicable local and national codes.

11. Recommended time delay fuse size or circuit breakers (Canadian units only) is equal to 150% of the largest compressor-motor RLA plus 100% of remaining compressor RLAs and the sum of condenser fan FLAs.

12. Maximum time delay fuse size or circuit breakers (Canadian units only) is equal to 225% of the largest compressor-motor RLA plus 100% of remaining compressor RLAs and the sum of condenser fan FLAs.

Evaporator Freeze Protection

All heat exchangers come equipped with thermostatically controlled heat tape. When power is applied to terminals 13 and 16, the heat tape will provide freeze protection down to

–20°F (–28.8°C). However, this should not be the only method of freeze protection. Unless the evaporator is flushed and drained as is described below in note 4 two or more of the remaining 3 recommendations must be followed as part of the system design:

1. By continuous circulation of water through the piping and the heat exchanger.

2. By the inclusion of glycol solution in the chilled water circuit.

3. By the addition of insulation, and heat during cold weather, to the exposed piping and heat exchanger.

4. By draining and flushing the chiller vessel with glycol during subfreezing weather.

Figure 21 shows typical field wiring that is required for unit installation. On models ALS125A through 380A the time clock is connected between terminals 60 and 61.

It is the responsibility of the installing contractor and/or on-site maintenance personnel to insure that this additional protection is provided. Routine checks should be made to insure adequate freeze protection is maintained.

Failure to do so may result in damage to unit components. Freeze damage is not considered a warranty failure.

Control Center

All electrical controls are enclosed in a weather resistant control center with keylocked, hinged access doors. The control center is composed of two separate compartments, high voltage and low voltage. All of the high voltage components are located in the compartment on the right side of the unit.

The low voltage components are located on the left side with the 115 VAC terminals located behind the deadfront panel. This protects service personnel from 115 VAC terminals when accessing the adjustable and resettable controls.

Sequence of Operation

The following sequence of operation is typical for McQuay models ALS125A through ALS380A screw water chillers. The sequence may vary depending on the software revision or various options which may be installed on the chiller.

Off conditions

With power supplied to the unit, 115 VAC power is applied through the control fuse F1 to the compressor heaters (HTR1, HTR2, HTR3 and evaporator heater) and the primary of the 24V control circuit transformer. Note: Compressor heaters must be on for at least 12 hours prior to start-up. The

24V transformer provides power to the MicroTech controller and related components. With 24V power applied, the controller will check the position of the front panel system switch. If the switch is in the

“stop” position the chiller will remain off and the display will indicate the operating mode to be OFF:

System Sw. The controller will then check the pumpdown switches. If any of the switches is in the

“stop” position, that circuit’s operating mode will be displayed as OFF: PumpDwnSw. If the switches for both circuits are in the “Stop” position the unit status will display OFF: PumpdownSw’s. If the remote start/stop switch is open, the chiller will be OFF: RemoteSw. The chiller may also be commanded off via communications from a separate communicating panel such as the Remote

Monitoring and Sequencing Panel or an Open Protocol interface. The display will show OFF:

RemoteComm if this operating mode is in effect. If an alarm condition exists which prevents normal

operation of both refrigerant circuits, the chiller will be disabled and the display will indicate OFF:

Alarm. If the control mode on the keypad is set to “Manual Unit Off,” the chiller will be disabled and

the unit status will display OFF: ManualMode. Assuming none of the above stop conditions are true, the controller will examine the internal time schedule to determine whether the chiller should be permitted to start. The operating mode will be OFF: TimeClock if the time schedule indicates time remaining in an “off” time period.

Alarm

The alarm light on the front panel will be illuminated when one or more of the cooling circuits has an active alarm condition which results in the circuit being locked out of operation. Unless the alarm condition affects all circuits the remaining circuits will operate as required. Refer to IM 549 for additional details.

Start-up

If none of the above “off” conditions are true, the MicroTech controller will initiate a start sequence and energize the chilled water pump output relay. The chiller will remain in the WaitForFlow mode until the field installed flow switch indicates the presence of chilled water flow. If flow is not proven within

30 seconds, the alarm output will be turned on, the keypad display will be WaitForFlow and the chiller will continue to wait for proof of chilled water flow. Once flow is established, the controller will sample the chilled water temperature and compare it against the Leaving Chilled Water Set Point, the Control

Band, and the Start-up Delta Temperature, which have been programmed into the controller’s memory.

If the leaving chilled water temperature is above the Leaving Chilled Water Set Point plus

1

2

the Control

Band plus the adjustable Start-up Delta Temperature, the controller will select the refrigerant circuit with the lowest number of starts as the lead circuit and energize the first stage of the Cool Staging mode. The controller will start the compressor and energize the compressor liquid injection solenoid along with the main liquid line solenoid. The controller will delay the opening of the electronic expansion valve until the evaporator pressure decreases to a preset value. This is the evaporator prepurge mode and the display will show Pre-Purge. The valve will then open allowing refrigerant to flow through the expansion valve and into the evaporator and the display will show Opened EXV. If additional cooling capacity is required, the controller will energize the additional cooling capacity by activating the first compressor’s capacity control solenoids. As the system load increases, the controller will start the lag refrigerant circuit in the same manner after interstage timers are satisfied. The compressors and capacity control solenoids will automatically be controlled as required to meet the cooling needs of the system. The electronic expansion valves are operated by the MicroTech controller to maintain precise refrigerant control to the evaporator at all conditions.

Condenser control

The first condenser fan stage will be started along with the first compressor to provide initial condenser head pressure control. The MicroTech controller will activate the remaining condenser fans as needed to maintain proper condenser pressure. The MicroTech controller continuously monitors the condenser minus evaporator lift pressure and will adjust the number of operating condenser fans as required. The number of condenser fans operating will vary with outdoor temperature and system load. The

condenser fans are matched to the operating compressors so that when a compressor is off all fans for that circuit will also be off. On units with the fan speed control option (SpeedTrol) the lead fan on each circuit will vary in speed to maintain condenser pressure at lower outdoor temperatures.

Pumpdown

As the system chilled water requirements diminish, the compressors will be unloaded. As the system load continues to drop, the electronic expansion valves will be stepped closed and the refrigerant circuits will go through a pumpdown sequence. As the evaporator pressure falls below the pumpdown pressure set point while pumping down, the compressor(s) and condenser fans will stop. The unit has a one time pumpdown control logic; therefore, if the evaporator pressure rises while the refrigerant circuit is in a pumpdown mode, the controller will not initiate another pumpdown sequence. The controller will keep the unit off until a call for cooling occurs. Refer to the pumpdown control section in IM 549 for additional details. The chilled water pump output relay will remain energized until the time schedule’s “on” time expires, the remote stop switch is opened, the system switch is moved to the stop position, or a separate communications panel such as the Remote Monitoring and Sequencing

Panel or an Open Protocol interface deactivates the chilled water pump output.

Start-up and Shutdown

Pre Start-up

To assure correct compressor rotation, field power supply leads must be properly phased prior to startup.

1. With all electric disconnects open, check all screw or lug type electrical connections to be sure they are tight for good electrical contact.

2. Inspect all water piping for flow direction and correct connections at the evaporator.

3. Using a phase tester, check that electrical phasing to each compressor circuit is A-B-C for phases L1,

L2, & L3 respectively.

4. Check the voltage of the unit power supply and see that it is within the ±10% tolerance that is allowed. Voltage unbalance between phases must be within ±3%.

5. Check the unit power supply wiring for adequate ampacity and a minimum insulation temperature rating of 75°C.

6. Verify that all mechanical and electrical inspections have been completed per local codes.

7. See that all auxiliary control equipment is operative and that an adequate cooling load is available for initial start-up.

8. Check all compressor valve connections for tightness to avoid refrigerant loss at start-up. Although all factory connections are tight before shipment, some loosening may have resulted from shipping vibration. Open the compressor suction and discharge shutoff valves until backseated. Open the liquid line shutoff valves until backseated. Always replace valve seal caps.

9. Make sure system switch S1 is in the “Stop” position and pumpdown switches PS1, PS2, PS3 and

PS4 are set to “Pumpdown and Stop,” throw the main power and control disconnect switches to

“on.” This will energize crankcase heaters. Wait a minimum of 12 hours before starting up unit.

Turn compressor circuit breakers to “off” position until ready to start unit.

10. Vent the air from the evaporator as well as from the system piping. Open all water flow valves and start the chilled water pump. Check all piping for leaks. Flush the evaporator and system piping to obtain clean, noncorrosive water in the evaporator circuit.

Most relays and terminals in the unit control center are powered when S1 is closed and the control circuit disconnect is on. Therefore do not close S1 until ready for start-up.

Initial start-up must be performed by McQuayService personnel. Don’t proceed with start-up until IM549 has been read.

Start-up

1. Double check that the compressor suction and discharge shutoff valves are backseated. Always replace valve seal caps.

2. Insure that the ball valves are open on the lines entering the evaporator.

3. Insure that the manual liquid line shutoff valve at the outlet of the subcooler is open.

4. Adjust the leaving chilled water temperature set point on the MicroTech controller to the desired chilled water temperature. The control band is preset for 10 degrees Delta-T between the entering and leaving evaporator water temperature at full load. If the Delta-T is outside an 8°-12°F range, at full load, reset the control band as per the instructions found in the MicroTech IM Manual 549.

5. Start the auxiliary equipment for the installation by turning on the time clock, and/or remote on/off switch, and chilled water pump.

6. Check to see that pumpdown switches PS1, PS2, PS3 and PS4 are in the “Pumpdown and Stop”

(open) position. Throw the S1 switch to the “auto” position.

7. Under the “Control Mode” menu of the keypad place the unit into the automatic cool mode.

8. Start the system by moving pumpdown switch PS1 to the “auto” position.

9. After running circuit 1 for a short time, check the rotation of the condenser fans. (Proper rotation

will have air being drawn into the vertical coils and discharged out the top of the unit.) Check for flashing in the refrigerant sightglass under stable conditions.

10. Repeat steps 8 and 9 for PS2, PS3 and PS4 and the second, third and fourth refrigerant circuits.

11. Superheat is factory adjusted to maintain between 6° and 12°F.

The superheat should be between 6° and 12°F, with the liquid line sightglass full, once the system temperatures have stabilized at the MicroTech set point temperatures.

12. After system performance has stabilized, it is necessary that the “Compressor Equipment Warranty

Form” be completed to obtain full warranty benefits. This form is shipped with the unit, and after completion, should be returned to McQuayService through your sales representative.

Temporary Shutdown

Move pumpdown switches PS1, PS2, PS3 and PS4 to the “Pumpdown and Stop” position. After the compressors have pumped down, turn off the chilled water pump. Caution: Do not turn the unit off

using the “S1” switch, without first moving PS1, PS2, PS3 and PS4 to the “Stop” position, unless it is an emergency as this will prevent the unit from going through a pumpdown.

IMPORTANT

The unit has one time pumpdown operation. When

PS1, PS2, PS3 and PS4 are in the “Pumpdown and

Stop” position the unit will pumpdown once and not run again until the PS1, PS2, PS3 and PS4 switches are moved to the auto position. If PS1, PS2, PS3 and

PS4 are in the auto position and the load has been satisfied the unit will go into one time pumpdown and will remain off until MicroTech senses a call for cooling and starts the unit.

The unit must not be cycled off by using the evaporator pump or the disconnect switch.

It is important that the water flow to the unit is not interrupted before the compressors pumpdown to avoid freeze-up in the evaporator.

If all power is turned off to the unit the compressor heaters will become inoperable. Once power is resumed to the unit it is important that the compressor heaters are energized a minimum of 12 hours before attempting to start the unit. Failure to do so could damage the compressors due to excessive accumulation of liquid in the compressor.

Start-up After Temporary Shutdown

Insure that the compressor heaters have been energized for at least 12 hours prior to starting the unit.

2. Start the chilled water pump.

3. With System switch S1 in the “on” position, move pumpdown switches PS1, PS2, PS3 and PS4 to the “auto” position.

4. Observe the unit operation until the system has stabilized.

IM 548 / Page 53

Page 54 / IM 548

If shutdown occurs or will continue through periods below freezing ambient temperatures, protect the chiller vessel from freezing.

Extended Shutdown

1. Move the PS1, PS2, PS3 and PS4 switches to the manual pumpdown position.

2. After the compressors have pumped down, turn off the chilled water pump.

3. Turn off all power to the unit and to the chilled water pump.

4. Move the emergency stop switch S1 to the “off” position.

5. Close the compressor suction and discharge valves as well as the liquid line shutoff valves.

6. Tag all opened disconnect switches to warn against start-up before opening the compressor suction and discharge valves and liquid line shutoff valves.

7. If glycol is not used in the system drain all water from the unit evaporator and chilled water piping if the unit is to be shut down during winter. Do not leave the vessels or piping open to the

atmosphere over the shutdown period.

8. Leave power applied to the cooler heating cable if a separate disconnect is used.

System Maintenance

General

On initial start-up and periodically during operation, it will be necessary to perform certain routine service checks. Among these are checking the liquid line sightglasses and taking condensing and suction pressure readings. Through the MicroTech keypad, check to see that the unit has normal superheat and subcooling readings.

A Periodic Maintenance Log is located on page 67 of this manual. It is suggested that the report be completed on a monthly basis. The log will serve as a useful tool for a service technician in the event service is required.

Compressor Maintenance

Since the compressor is semi-hermetic requiring no oil separator, oil heaters and pumps, no yearly maintenance is normally required. However, vibration is an excellent check for proper mechanical operation. Compressor vibration is an indicator of the requirement for maintenance and contributes to a decrease in unit performance and efficiency. It is recommended that the compressor be checked with a vibration analyzer at or shortly after start-up and again on an annual basis. When performing the test the load should be maintained as closely as possible to the load of the original test. The vibration analyzer test provides a fingerprint of the compressor and when performed routinely can give a warning of impending problems. The compressor is checked at the factory for maximum vibration of 0.14 IPS (3.56 mm/s) at

3600 rpm.

The compressor is supplied with a lifetime oil filter. It is a good policy to replace this filter anytime the compressor is opened for servicing.

Fan Motor Bearings

The fan motor bearings are of the permanently lubricated type. No lubrication is required. Excessive fan motor bearing noise is an indication of a potential bearing failure.

Electrical Terminals

Electric shock hazard. Turn off all power before continuing with following service.

All power electrical terminals, for compressors and fan motor power wiring, should be retightened every six months, as they tend to loosen in service due to normal heating and cooling of the wire.

Condensers

Condensers are air cooled and constructed with

3

/

8

" (9.5mm) O.D. internally finned copper tubes bonded in a staggered pattern into slit aluminum fins. No maintenance is ordinarily required except the occasional removal of dirt and debris from the outside surface of the fins. McQuay recommends the use of foaming coil cleaners available at air conditioning supply outlets. Use caution when applying such cleaners as they may contain potentially harmful chemicals. Care should be taken not to damage the fins during cleaning. If the service technician has reason to believe that the refrigerant circuit contains noncondensables, manual purging may be required. The purge Shrader valve is located on the vertical coil header on both sides of the unit at the control box end of the coil. Access panels are located at the end of the condenser coil directly behind the control panel. Purge with the unit off, after shutdown of

15 minutes or longer, to allow air to collect at the top of the coil. Restart and run the unit for a brief period. If necessary shut unit off and repeat the procedure. Follow accepted environmentally sound practices when removing refrigerant from the unit.

Refrigerant Sightglass

The refrigerant sightglasses should be observed periodically. (A weekly observation should be adequate.) A clear glass of liquid indicates that there is adequate refrigerant charge in the system to insure proper feed through the expansion valve. Bubbling refrigerant in the sightglass, during stable run conditions, indicates that the system may be short of refrigerant charge. Refrigerant gas flashing in the sightglass could also indicate an excessive pressure drop in the liquid line, possibly due to a clogged filter-drier or a restriction elsewhere in the liquid line. If subcooling is low add charge to clear the sightglass. If subcooling is normal (10°-15°F) and flashing is visible in the sightglass check the pressure drop across the filter-drier.

An element inside the sightglass indicates the moisture condition corresponding to a given element color. If the sightglass does not indicate a dry condition after about 12 hours of operation, the unit should be pumped down and the filter-driers changed.

Lead-Lag

A feature on all McQuay ALS air cooled chillers is a system for alternating the sequence in which the compressors start to balance the number of starts and run hours. Lead-Lag of the refrigerant circuits is accomplished automatically through the MicroTech Controller. When in the auto mode the circuit with the fewest number of starts will be started first. If all circuits are operating and a stage down to one circuit is required, the circuit with the most operating hours will cycle off first. The operator may override the

MicroTech controller, and manually select the lead circuit as circuit #1, #2, #3 or circuit #4.

Service

Service on this equipment is to be performed by qualified refrigeration personnel familiar with equipment operation, maintenance, correct servicing procedures, and the safety hazards inherent to this work. Causes for repeated tripping of safety controls must be investigated and corrected.

Disconnect all power before doing any service inside the unit.

NOTICE

Anyone servicing this equipment shall comply with the requirements set forth by the EPA in regards to refrigerant reclamation and venting.

Page 56 / IM 548

Compressor Solenoids

The ALS unit screw compressors are equipped with 3 solenoids to control compressor unloading. The solenoids are controlled by MicroTech outputs. See unit wiring diagrams. The solenoids are energized at various compressor load conditions as indicated in the table below.

Location of the solenoids is as follows:

The top solenoid is on top of the compressor near the discharge end.

The bottom solenoids are on the lower side of the compressor on the opposite side from the terminal box. The bottom front solenoid is the one closest to the discharge end of the compressor. The bottom rear solenoid is the one closest to the motor end of the compressor.

If the compressor is not loading properly check the solenoids to see if they are energized per the above chart. A complete check will include a check of the MicroTech output, the wiring to the solenoid and the solenoid coil itself.

Filter-Driers

A replacement of the filter-drier is recommended during scheduled service maintenance of the unit, any time excessive pressure drop is read across the filter-drier and/or when bubbles occur in the sightglass with normal subcooling. A partially clogged filter can also cause trips on the no liquid run sensor. The

maximum recommended pressure drops across the filter-drier are as follows:

4 (27.6)

The filter-drier should also be changed if the moisture indicating liquid line sightglass indicates excess moisture by the wet system color indicators.

During the first few months of operation the filter-drier replacement may be necessary if the pressure drop across the filter-drier exceeds the values listed in the paragraph above. Any residual particles from the unit heat transfer tubing, compressor and miscellaneous components are swept by the refrigerant into the liquid line and are caught by the filter-drier.

The following is the procedure for changing the filter-drier core:

This procedure is slightly different from a typical reciprocating compressor unit due to the use of a liquid injection feature on the ALS screw compressor unit. Anytime the compressor contactor is closed liquid from the liquid line is injected into the screw for cooling and sealing. This liquid injection also occurs during normal pumpdown and limits how low a pumpdown can be achieved.

The standard unit pumpdown is set to stop pumpdown when 34 psig (235 kPa) suction pressure is reached. To fully pump down a circuit beyond 34 psig (235 kPa) for service purposes a “Full

Pumpdown” service mode can be activated using the keypad. Go to the “Alarm Spts” Menu on the

MicroTech keypad, step through the menu items until “FullPumpDwn” is displayed. Change the setting from “No” to “Yes”.

The next time either circuit is pumped down, the pumpdown will continue until the evaporator pressure reaches 2 psig (14 kPa) or 60 seconds have elapsed, whichever occurs first. Upon completing the pumpdown, the “FullPumpDwn” set point is automatically changed back to “No”.

The procedure to perform a full service pumpdown for changing the filter-drier core is as follows.

1. Perform a normal pumpdown to 34 psig (235 kPa) by moving the pumpdown switch to the

“Pumpdown” position. This step will pump down the evaporator with compressor liquid injection still active.

2. Close the liquid line shutoff valve above the filter-drier, on the circuit to be serviced.

3. Under the “Alarm Spts”, change the “FullPumpDwn” set point from “No” to “Yes”.

4. The circuit status should be “Off:PumpDwnSw”. Move the circuit pumpdown switch from

“Pumpdown and Stop” to “Auto”. Also clear the anticycle timers through the MicroTech keypad.

5. The compressor should pump down the circuit until the evaporator pressure reaches 2 psig (14 kPa) or 60 seconds has elapsed, whichever occurs first.

6. Upon completing the full pumpdown per step 5, the “FullPumpDwn” set point is automatically changed back to “No” which reverts back to standard 34 psig (235 kPa) stop pumpdown pressure.

7. If the pumpdown does not go to 2 psig (14 kPa) on the first attempt, one more attempt can be made by repeating steps 3, 4 and 5 above. Do not repeat “FullPumpDwn” more than once to avoid

excessive screw temperature rise under this abnormal condition. A no liquid start alarm and shutdown may occur during this procedure. Proceed as noted in step number 8.

8. The circuit is now in the deepest pumpdown which can safely be achieved by the use of the compressor. Any remaining refrigerant must be removed from the circuit by the use of a refrigerant recovery unit.

Remove and replace the filter-drier(s). If the refrigerant circuit is opened for more than 10 minutes evacuate the lines through the liquid line manual shutoff valve(s) to remove noncondensables that may have entered during filter replacement. A leak check is recommended before returning the unit to operation.

Liquid Line Solenoid Valve

The liquid line solenoid valves that shuts off refrigerant flow in the event of a power failure, do not normally require any maintenance. (The electronic expansion valve, on a sudden power failure, remains

open to the position it was at when the power failure occurred. During normal operation the EEV closes for

automatic pumpdown and the liquid line solenoid valve closes only when the compressor stops.) They may, however, require replacement of the solenoid coil or of the entire valve assembly.

The solenoid coil can be checked to see that the stem is magnetized when energized by touching a screwdriver to the top of the stem. If there is no magnetization either the coil is bad or there is no power to the coil.

The solenoid coil may be removed from the valve body without opening the refrigerant piping after first moving pumpdown switches PS1, PS2 and PS3 to the “manual pumpdown” position and opening the S1 switch. For personal safety shut off and lock out the unit power.

The coil can then be removed from the valve body by simply removing a nut or snap-ring located at the top of the coil. The coil can then be slipped off its mounting stud for replacement. Be sure to replace the coil on its mounting stud before returning pumpdown switches PS1, PS2 and PS3 to the “auto pumpdown” position.

To replace the entire solenoid valve follow the steps involved when changing a filter-drier.

Liquid Injection Solenoid Valve

Liquid injection is required during compressor operation to seal and cool the screw. A liquid injection sensor is installed on the compressor to assure that liquid injection occurs whenever the compressor is running. A failure of the liquid injection solenoid valve to open will cause the compressor to shut down due to lack of liquid injection.

The liquid injection solenoid valve, like the liquid line solenoid valve, only closes when the compressor stops. Since this valve is open during pumpdown the refrigerant in the line will cause the suction pressure to rise 10 to 20 psig (69 to 138 kPa) after shutdown occurs. The solenoid coil and valve body can be removed as in the same procedure as the liquid line solenoid valve but it is important that the S1 switch be opened first.

IM 548 / Page 57

Electronic Expansion Valve

The electronic expansion valve is located adjacent to the compressor. The refrigerant is piped so it first passes through the electronic expansion valve, then through the motor housing cooling the motor, before going into the evaporator. Refer to the Refrigerant Piping Schematic found on page 46.

The expansion valve is responsible for allowing the proper amount of refrigerant to enter the evaporator to match the cooling load. It does this by maintaining a constant superheat. (Superheat is the difference

between refrigerant temperature of the vapor as it leaves the evaporator and the saturation temperature

corresponding to the evaporator pressure.) All ALS chillers are factory set for between 8°F (4.5°C) and 12°F

(6.6°C) superheat at 75% to 100% load and between 6°F (3.3°C) and 10°F (5.6°C) below 75% load. The superheat is controlled by the microprocessor and is not adjustable.

The expansion valve, like the solenoid valve, should not normally require maintenance, but if it requires replacement, the unit must be pumped down by following the steps involved when changing a filterdrier.

If the problem can be traced to the electric motor only, it can be unscrewed from the valve body without removing the valve but only after pumping the unit down. Disassemble valve at the brass hex nut. Do no disassemble valve at the aluminum housing.

Electronic Expansion Valve Operation

There are 3 colored indicator LEDs (green, red, yellow) located in the control panel on the electronic expansion valve (EXV) board. When the control panel is first powered the microprocessor will automatically step the valve to the fully closed (shut) position and the indicator lights on the EXV will blink in sequence. The valve can also be heard closing as it goes through the steps. The valve will take approximately 14 seconds to go from a full open position to a full closed position.

The position of the valve can be viewed at any time by using the MicroTech keypad through the circuit pressures menus. There are a total of 760 steps between closed and full open.

A feature of the electronic expansion valve is a maximum operating pressure setting (MOP). This setting limits the load on the compressor during start-up periods where high return evaporator water temperatures may be present. The valve will limit the maximum suction pressure at start-up to approximately 85 psig (586 kPa). The valve will close to a point necessary to maintain the 85 psig (586

kPa). During this time the superheat will rise above 12°F (6.6°C) and not drop below 12°F (6.6°C) until the suction pressure drops below 85 psig (586 kPa). The valve will maintain evaporator pressure close to 85 psig (586 kPa) until the evaporator water temperature decreases to approximately 55 to 60°F

(12.7 to 15.6°C).

When the circuit starts the valve opens as soon as the evaporator pressure decreases to 40 psig (275 kPa).

At the end of the cooling cycle the valve closes to cause the system to pump down. The valve closes at the rate of approximately 55 steps per second, or from full open to full closed in approximately 14 seconds. The valve closing during pumpdown will occur in approximately 20-30 seconds after the pumpdown switch is moved to the “Pumpdown and Stop” position.

Evaporator

The evaporator is of the direct expansion, shell-and-tube type with refrigerant flowing through the tubes and water flowing through the shell over the tubes. The tubes are internally finned to provide extended surface as well as turbulent flow of refrigeration through the tubes. Normally no service work is required on the evaporator. There may be instances where a tube will leak refrigerant into the water side of the system. In the cases where only one or two tubes leak, the problem can best be solved by plugging the tube at both ends. When the tube must be replaced, the old tube can be removed and replaced. Follow

the requirements set forth by the EPA for the pumpdown and recovery of refrigerant.

To remove a tube, the unit should be temporarily pumped down. Follow the steps involved when changing a filter-drier. These steps will insure a minimum amount of refrigerant loss when the evaporator is opened up. The tubes are mechanically expanded into the tube sheets at each end of the evaporator. In order to remove the tubes, it is necessary to break this bond by collapsing the tube. After doing this at both ends of the shell, the tube can be removed for replacement. The new tube can then be inserted and re-expanded into the tube sheet.

Note: The bond produced by expansion must be refrigerant tight. This bond must be produced by

applying Locktite (red) to the tube and rolling it into the tube sheet.

After reassembling the evaporator, a small amount of refrigerant should be introduced by momentarily opening the manual liquid line valve. A leak check should then be performed on the evaporator.

Tube removal can only take place after the leaking tube is located. One method that would work would be to subject each tube to air pressure by plugging each end and, with a pressure gauge attached to one of the end plugs, observing if there is a loss of air pressure over a period of a minute or two.

Another method is to place a cork plug in each tube on both ends of the cooler and applying pressure to the shell of the cooler. After a period of time the pressure will leak from the shell into the leaking tube or tubes and pop out the cork plug.

Refrigerant Charging

ALS air cooled screw chillers are shipped factory charged with a full operating charge of refrigerant but there may be times that a unit must be recharged at the jobsite. Follow these recommendations when field charging. Refer to the unit operating charge found in the physical data tables on pages 17-20.

ALS air cooled screw chillers are more sensitive to undercharging than to overcharging therefore it is preferable to be slightly overcharged rather than undercharged on a circuit. The optimum charge is the charge which allows the unit to run with a solid stream of liquid in the liquid line at all operating conditions. When the liquid line temperature does not drop with the addition of 5-10 lbs of charge then the subcooler is nearly full and proper charge has been reached. If the liquid line temperature does

IM 548 / Page 59

Page 60 / IM 548 not drop and the discharge pressure goes up 3-5 psig (20.7-34.5 kPa) as 5-10 lbs of refrigerant is added the correct maximum charge has been reached.

Unit charging can be done at any steady load condition, at any outdoor ambient temperature. Unit must be allowed to run 5 minutes or longer so that the condenser fan staging is stabilized at normal operating discharge pressure. For best results charge with 2 or more condenser fans operating per refrigerant circuit.

The ALS units have a condenser coil design with approximately 15% of the coil tubes located in a subcooler section of the coil to obtain liquid cooling to within 5°F (3°C) of the outdoor air temperature when all condenser fans are operating. This is equal to about 15-20°F (8.3-11.1°C) subcooling below saturated condensing temperature when pressure is read at the liquid valve between the condenser coil and the liquid line filter drier. Once the subcooler is filled extra charge will not lower the liquid temperature and does not help system capacity or efficiency. However, a little extra (10-15 lbs) will make the system less sensitive.

Note: As the unit changes load or fans cycle on or off, the subcooling will vary but should recover

within several minutes and should never show below 6°F (3.3°C) subcooling at any steady state run condition. Subcooling will vary somewhat with evaporator leaving water temperature and suction superheat. As the evaporator superheat goes lower the subcooling will drop slightly.

Excessive refrigerant losses can also leak oil from the system. When adding charge, if there is visible evidence of a significant oil leakage, add an additional oil charge equivalent to 0.04 pints x the lbs. of refrigerant charge required. (Example: For every 10 lbs. of refrigerant charge add .4 pints of oil.)

A leak in the unit could be very small and have little effect on system operation or could be severe enough to cause the unit to shut down on a safety trip.

One of the following three scenarios will be experienced with an undercharged unit:

1. If the unit is slightly undercharged the unit will show bubbles in the sightglass. Recharge the unit as described in the charging procedure below.

2. If the unit is moderately undercharged the unit will most likely trip on freeze protection. Recharge the unit as described in the charging procedure below.

3. If the unit is severely undercharged the unit will trip off due to lack of liquid injection. In this case either remove the remaining charge by means of a proper reclamation system and recharge the unit with the proper amount of refrigerant as is stamped on the unit nameplate, or add refrigerant through the suction valve on the compressor. Feed liquid into the suction valve when the compressor is running. If the unit is severely undercharged the unit may nuisance trip during this charging procedure. If this happens close off the refrigerant from the tank and restart the unit. Once the unit has enough charge so that it does not trip out continue with step 2 of the charging procedure below.

Procedure to charge a moderately undercharged ALS unit:

1. If a unit is low on refrigerant you must first determine the cause before attempting to recharge the unit. Locate and repair any refrigerant leak. Evidence of oil is a good indicator of leakage however, oil may not be visible at all leaks. Liquid leak detector fluids work well to show bubbles at medium size leaks but electronic leak detectors may be needed to locate small leaks.

2. Add the charge to the system through the suction shutoff valve or through the schrader fitting on the tube entering the evaporator between the compressor and the evaporator head.

3. The charge can be added at any load condition between 25-100% load per circuit but at least 2 fans should be operating per refrigerant circuit if possible. The suction superheat should be in the 6°-12°F

(3.3-6.6°C) range.

4. Add sufficient charge to clear the liquid line sight glass and until all flashing stops in the sightglass.

Add an extra 15-20 lbs. of reserve to fill the subcooler if the compressor is operating at 50-100% load.

5. Check the unit subcooling value on the MicroTech display or by reading the liquid line pressure and temperature at the liquid line near the filter-drier. The subcooling values should be between 6°-20°F

(6.6-11.1°C). The subcooling values will be highest at 75-100% load, approximately 12°-20°F (6.6-

11.1°C) and lowest at 50% load, approximately 6°-12°F (3.3-6.6°C).

6. With outdoor temperatures above 60°F (15.6°C) all condenser fans should be operating and the liquid line temperature should be within 5°-10°F (2.8-5.6°C) of outdoor air temperature. At 25-50% load the liquid line temperature should be within 5°F (2.8°C) of outdoor air temperature with all fans on. At 75-100% load the liquid line temperature should be within 10°F (5.6°C) of outdoor air temperature with all fans on.

7. Overcharging of refrigerant will raise the compressor discharge pressure due to filling of the condenser tubes with excess refrigerant after the liquid line temperature has reached its minimum value.

Outside airThis sensor is located on the back of the control box on compressor #1 side. It measures the outside air temperature, is used to determine if low ambient start logic is necessary and can be the reference for low ambient temperature lockout.

Suction temperature circuit #1The sensor is located in a well brazed to circuit #1 suction line. The purpose of the sensor is to measure refrigerant temperature to control and maintain proper superheat.

Suction temperature circuit #2The sensor is located in a well brazed to circuit #2 suction line. The purpose of the sensor is to measure refrigerant temperature to control and maintain proper superheat.

Suction temperature circuit #3The sensor is located in a well brazed to circuit #3 suction line. The purpose of the sensor is to measure refrigerant temperature to control and maintain proper superheat.

Suction temperature circuit #4The sensor is located in a well brazed to circuit #4 suction line. The purpose of the sensor is to measure refrigerant temperature to control and maintain proper superheat.

Liquid line temperature circuit #1The sensor is located in a well brazed to circuit #1 liquid line. It measures the refrigerant temperature and is used to calculate subcooling.

Liquid line temperature circuit #2The sensor is located in a well brazed to circuit #2 liquid line. It measures the refrigerant temperature and is used to calculate subcooling.

Liquid line temperature circuit #3The sensor is located in a well brazed to circuit #3 liquid line. It measures the refrigerant temperature and is used to calculate subcooling.

Liquid line temperature circuit #4The sensor is located in a well brazed to circuit #4 liquid line. It measures the refrigerant temperature and is used to calculate subcooling.

Demand limit This requires a field connection of a 4-20 milliamp DC signal from a building automation system. It will determine the maximum number of cooling stages which may be energized.

Evaporator water temperature resetThis requires a 4-20 milliamp DC signal from a building automation system or temperature transmitter to reset the leaving chilled water set point.

Percent total unit amps(optional) This is located in the power side of the control panel. An adjustable voltage resistor and a signal converter board sends a DC signal proportional to the total compressor motor current to the microprocessor.

Liquid presence sensor

Each compressor is equipped with a liquid sensor to assure that liquid flows to the compressor for cooling and sealing during operation. The sensor will shutdown the compressor in the event no liquid is sensed. At start-up the liquid sensor checks for excessive liquid in the compressor and will delay start until the compressor heater transfers the liquid out of the compressor and into the condenser. A liquid trip by the sensor will produce an alarm message on the MicroTech display.

High condenser pressure control

MicroTech is also supplied with high pressure transducers on each refrigerant circuit. Although the main purpose of the high pressure transducer is to maintain proper head pressure control, another purpose is to convey a signal to the MicroTech control to unload the compressor in the event of an excessive rise in discharge pressure to within 20 psi (138 kPa) below the condenser pressure control setpoint of 380 psig

(2620 kPa). The MicroTech control is set to not allow additional circuit loading approximately 30 psi

(207 kPa) below the high pressure switch trip setting. The high pressure alarm is in response to the signal sent by the pressure transducer. The high pressure transducer can be checked by elevating discharge pressure (see Mechanical High Pressure Safety Control) and observing the MicroTech display (or a

pressure gage), and unit operation as the pressures pass the rising high pressure values noted. After the test reset the High Condenser Pressure alarm set point to 380 psig (2620 kPa).

Mechanical high pressure safety control

The high pressure safety control is a single pole pressure activated switch that opens on a pressure rise.

When the switch opens, the control circuit is de-energized dropping power to the compressor and fan motor contactors. The switch is factory made to open at 400 psig (2760 kPa) (±10 psig) and reclose at 300 psig (2070 kPa). Although the high pressure switch will close again at 300 psig (2070 kPa), the control circuit will remain locked out and it must be reset through MicroTech.

The control is mounted on the compressor attached to a fitting ahead of the discharge shut off valve.

To check the control first manually load circuit #1 to 75% load. Adjust the High Condenser Pressure control to 415 psig (2862 kPa) through the “Alarm Spts” menu of the keypad. Remove wire 133 from terminal 20 of the MicroTech controller. This will disable all but one fan. Observe the cut out point of

IM 548 / Page 65

Page 66 / IM 548 the control through the MicroTech keypad display, or by means of a service gauge on the back seat port on the discharge service valve. Important: Closely monitor the High Pressure Control and stay within

reach of the emergency stop switch. Do not let the pressure exceed 420 psig (2900 kPa) during the

test. If the condenser pressure reaches 420 psig (2900 kPa) open the emergency stop switch. The

MicroTech keypad display may read slightly lower than a service gauge. Upon completion of the test

reset the High Pressure Control back to 380 psig (2620 kPa).

To check the control on circuit #2 repeat the same procedure after removing wire 233 from terminal

30.

Compressor motor protection

The compressors are supplied with two types of motor protection. Solid state electronic overloads mounted in the control box sense motor current within 2% of accuracy of the operating amps. The must trip amps are equal to 140% of unit nameplate compressor RLA. The must hold amps are equal to 125% of unit nameplate RLA. A trip of these overloads can result from the unit operating outside of normal conditions. Repeat overload trips under normal operation may indicate wiring or compressor motor problems. The overloads are manual reset and must be reset at the overload as well as through

MicroTech.

The compressors also have a solid state guardister circuit which provides motor over temperature protection. The guardister circuit has automatic reset but must also be reset through MicroTech.

FanTrol head pressure control

FanTrol is a method of head pressure control which automatically cycles the condenser fans in response to condenser pressure. This maintains head pressure and allows the unit to run at all ambient air temperatures.

All ALS units have independent circuits with the fans being controlled independently by the condensing pressure of each circuit. If one circuit is off all fans on that circuit will also be off. The use of multiple fans enables the unit to have excellent head pressure control at low outside ambients by cycling to maintain the compressor discharge pressure within the desired operating band.

At outdoor ambient temperatures above approximately 65°F (18.3°C) all of the fans for a circuit will be operating to achieve the most efficient unit operation. At any compressor load condition of 50% or above the unit has the highest overall efficiency with all fans operating. When the compressor unloads below 50% the last fan stage is cut off because the fan energy saved is more than the compressor power increase at this light loading. Below approximately 65°F (18.3°C) outdoor temperature the fans are cycled off as needed on each refrigerant circuit by the MicroTech control to maintain the compressor discharge pressure in the optimum range for best unit operation and highest overall efficiency.

Fans are controlled by MicroTech in response to the system discharge pressure. The use of MicroTech to stage on the fans as needed allows more precise control and prevents undesirable cycling of fans.

One fan always operates with the compressor and other fans are activated one at a time as needed. The control uses 6 stages of fan control, with 4 outputs to activate up to 6 additional fans per circuit.

MicroTech logic sequences fan contactors to stage one fan at a time. On units with 6 or 7 fans per circuit a single fan is cut off when 2 fans are started to achieve adding one operating fan. See Tables 59,

60 and 61.

Note: Each output relay controls one fan except output relay #4 which controls two fans.

Several factors are evaluated by the MicroTech controller to determine the number of fans to be operated.

These include:

1. What is the compressor loading as percent of full load?

2. What is the minimum lift pressure required at this load? (The lift pressure equals the discharge pressure

minus the suction pressure.)

3. A control pressure band is added to the minimum lift pressure to prevent fan cycling.

4. A target discharge pressure is determined by adding the minimum lift pressure to the suction pressure.

At any operating condition the MicroTech controller will determine the minimum lift pressure and a target discharge pressure, and will add or remove operating fans in sequence until the discharge pressure reaches the target value or falls within the control band of pressure set just above the target pressure value.

Each fan added has a decreasing percentage effect so the control pressure band is smaller when more fans are on and largest with only 1 or 2 fans on.

Unit operation, with FanTrol, is satisfactory down to outdoor temperatures of 30°F (–1.1°C). Below this temperature the SpeedTrol option is required to regulate the speed of the first fan on the system to adequately control the discharge pressure. With the SpeedTrol option unit operation down to 0°F (–

17.8°C) outdoor temperature is permitted assuming that no greater than a 5 mph wind is present. If

SpeedTrol is used in conjunction with wind baffles and hail guards, unit will operate down to -10°F (-

23°C).

For windy locations operating below 30°F (–1.1°C) outdoor air temperature, wind gusts must be prevented from blowing into the unit coils by either locating the unit in a protected area, by the addition of field supplied wind barriers, mounting the optional wind baffles on the unit or any combination of the above.

IM 548 / Page 67

Page 68 / IM 548

FanTrol operation example:

Unit operating at 100% load on both circuits

Suction Pressure = 65 psig (448 kPa)

Minimum lift pressure at 100% load = 120 psig (828 kPa)

Minimum discharge pressure =

65 + 120 psig = 185 psig (1276 kPa)

Discharge pressure control band = 35 psig (241 kPa)

Maximum discharge pressure =

185 + 35 = 220 psig (1517 kPa)

If the discharge pressure is between the minimum of 185 psig (1276 kPa) and maximum of 220 psig

(1517 kPa) the fan stages in operation are correct and if the pressure falls outside this range the MicroTech controller will stage fans on or off to bring it within range.

SpeedTrol and FanTrol will provide reasonable operating refrigerant discharge pressures at the ambient temperatures listed for them provided the coil is not affected by the existence of wind. Wind baffles must be utilized for low ambient operation below 30°F if the unit is subjected to winds greater than 5 mph.

Low ambient start

Low ambient start is incorporated into the MicroTech logic. The MicroTech will measure the difference between freezestat and evaporator pressure and determine the length of time the compressor will be allowed to run (to build up evaporator pressure) before taking the compressor off line. The danger of allowing the compressor to run for to long before building up evaporator pressure is that the evaporator could freeze. The low ambient timer is determined by the pressure difference between freezestat and evaporator pressure as shown in table . If the low ambient timer is greater than the maximum time allowed the MicroTech will shut off the compressor and display an alarm.

Phase/voltage monitor

The phase/voltage monitor is a device which provides protection against three-phase electrical motor loss due to power failure conditions, phase loss, and phase reversal. Whenever any of these conditions occur, a contact opens to the MicroTech controller (PVR Input) which then de-energizes all inputs.

When proper power is restored, contacts close and MicroTech enables compressors for operation.

When three-phase power has been applied, the output relay should close and the “run light” should come on. If the output relay does not close, perform the following tests.

1. Check the voltages between L1-L2, L1-L3 and L2-L3. These voltages should be approximately equal and within +10% of the rated three-phase line-to-line voltage.

2. If these voltages are extremely low or widely unbalanced check the power system to determine the cause of the problem.

3. If the voltages are good, using a phase tester, verify that phases are in A,B,C sequence for L1, L2 and

L3. Correct rotation is required for compressor operation. If required to do so by phase sequence, turn off the power and interchange any two of the supply power leads at the disconnect.

This may be necessary as the phase/voltage monitor is sensitive to phase reversal. Turn on the power.

The output relay should now close after the appropriate delay.

Compressor short cycling protection

MicroTech contains logic to prevent rapid compressor starting. Excessive compressor starts can be hard on starting components and create excessive motor winding temperatures. The anti-cycle timers are set for a 5 minute stop-to-start and a 15 minute start-to-start. Both are adjustable through MicroTech and can be manually overridden by the service technician.

Optional Controls

SpeedTrol head pressure control (optional)

The SpeedTrol system of head pressure control operates in conjunction with MicroTech’s standard head pressure control by modulating the motor speed on fans 11, 21 and 41 in response to condensing temperature. By reducing the speed of the last fan as the condensing pressure falls, the unit can operate at lower ambient temperatures. Start-up in low ambient is improved because the SpeedTrol fans 11, 21 and 41 do not start until the condenser pressure builds up.

The SpeedTrol fan motor is a single phase, 208-230/460 volt, thermally protected motor specially designed for variable speed application. The solid-state speed controls SC11, SC21 and SC41 are accessible through the panel directly above the control box. Units with 575 volt power have a transformer mounted inside the condenser fan compartment to step the voltage down to 230 volts for the

SpeedTrol motor.

The SpeedTrol control starts to modulate the motor speed at less than 65°F and maintains a minimum condensing pressure of 170 to 180 psig (1172 to 1241 kPa) at full circuit load. For part load operation the condensing pressure is allowed to fall below this level.

Reduced inrush start (optional)

Reduced inrush start is available on all voltage units and consists of a 2 contactor arrangement with a solid state time delay wired in series with the second contactor that energizes the second winding of each compressor motor. Its purpose is to limit current inrush to the compressors upon start-up. As each compressor starts, the power to the coil of the second contactor is delayed for 1 second. With the first compressor contactor energized the windings are connected in series to draw reduced amperage.

With the second contactor energized the windings are connected in parallel.

Control checkout is best accomplished by observation as each contactor is pulled in to see that the 1 second delay occurs before the second contactor pulls in.

Hot gas bypass (optional)

Hot gas bypass is a system for maintaining evaporator pressure at or above a minimum value that allows continous operation of the chiller at light load conditions. The purpose of doing this is to keep the velocity of the refrigerant as it passes through the evaporator high enough for proper oil return to the compressor when cooling load conditions are light.

The system consists of a pressure regulating valve with an integral solenoid as shown below. The solenoid valve is factory wired to open whenever the unit thermostat calls for the first stage of cooling.

The pressure regulating valve is factory set to begin opening at 58 psig (400 kPa). For low temperature operation the valve must be reset. This setting can be changed with an adjustment nut. To raise the pressure setting, turn the adjustment screw clockwise. To lower the setting, turn the screw counterclockwise. Do not force the adjustment beyond the range it is designed for, as this will damage the adjustment assembly.

With the unit operating at 50% or lower circuit load the regulating valve opening can be determined.

The regulating valve opening point can be determined by slowly reducing the system load or throttling the ball valve on the liquid line at the entrance to the evaporator. Observe the suction pressure with refrigerant gauges when the hot gas bypass valve cuts in. A slower but alternate method would be to lower the outlet water temperature to a value where the hot gas bypass valve starts to open. When the bypass valve starts to open, the refrigerant line on the evaporator side of the valve will begin to feel warm to the touch.

Wind baffles and hail guards (optional)

Wind baffles can be supplied as a field installed option to reduce the negative effects on head pressure from wind blowing over the vertical condenser coils. Wind baffles will permit stable operation at reduced ambient temperatures and should be considered on all low ambient jobs or anytime that wind may be a factor.
