CIAT completes full chiller replacement at Pentland

CIAT UK has completed a full chiller replacement at the headquarters of Pentland Brands, which manages a portfolio of global sports, fashion, and outdoor brands. CIAT is part of Carrier, a provider of an innovative heating, ventilating and air conditioning (HVAC), refrigeration, fire, security and building automation technologies. 
When the original long-serving CIAT chiller on the roof-top of the company’s head office building in Finchley, north London, came to the end of its operational life, CIAT UK was commissioned to come up with a cost-effective, like-for-like solution.
The new system is based on a high-efficiency AQUACIAT Power chiller (LD ST 1250C), with a cooling capacity of 342.5 kW. Based on smooth-running hermetic scroll compressors, the fully packaged air-cooled chiller offers excellent energy efficiency plus low noise operation. Efficiency is enhanced by the use of an all-aluminum micro-channel heat exchange coil, and axial condenser fans with composite blades with an optimized aerodynamic profile.
The phased plan included the installation of new pipework, insulation, valve strainers and electrical connections, including trace heating and cabling and connection to the Building Management System (BMS).
