The HVAC system found in offshore facilities works in the most challenging marine environment. From the cold winter of the North Sea to the hot and moist summer of the Gulf of Mexico, the offshore HVAC companies offer vital systems that are an important part of keeping a convenient crew and the facilities operate smoothly. When the HVAC system goes down, they are not only discomfort but can even be a health risk if extreme weather conditions occur. Given the hard marine environment operated by offshore facilities and vessels, there is no way to completely stop HVAC problems from happening. However, their frequency and severity can be greatly reduced by routine maintenance.
Specialist Services The operating team has provided maintenance and service support to offshore facilities around the world.
Why do HVAC routine maintenance abroad?
Like most problems in life, issue problems while they are small are much easier and less expensive to be repaired than when they become significant. This applies especially for the HVAC system that works in offshore facilities.
Performing routine maintenance on the HVAC system provides two cost savings benefits. First, this reduces expensive service calls by sending service technicians to rise with pedestrian supplies or scheduled crew ships so the facility does not need to pay expensive transportation only for one person. Second, the problem of arresting before they became a big problem to expand the work life of the HVAC system and reduce the need to replace the unit directly.
For what hvac routine maintenance calls?
When service technician service specialist performs routine maintenance of the HVAC system, they follow the checklist of six items that ensure the system is in the work order and ready to keep the crew comfortable.
Check filters – like in your home, the filter in the HVAC system needs to be cleaned or replaced, depending on the type and condition of the filter. Clogged filters can improve the HVAC system by increasing how hard the system must work to move the same amount of air.
Check the condition of the roll of evaporator and condenser – the evaporator and the condenser coil is a hot spot scattered from the system. If they become dirty or clogged, the heat the system will maintain, it causes it to be less effective. This is why they are examined and cleaned or replaced depending on their condition.
Check fans of evaporators and condensers – other than coils, evaporators and condensers also use fans to help regulate the heat system. If the fan does not run correctly or is damaged, the system can only produce lukewarm when running. This is why fans are examined cleanliness and condition and cleaned or replaced as needed.
Check amp vision – check amp on electrical components, such as compressor fan motors, can provide insight service technicians about their respective performance. This power usage number helps identify components that need to be replaced. It can also identify the parts, while they currently work, show signs that they can immediately begin to fail and need to be replaced.
Check the battery in the thermostat – checking the battery in a thermostat helps ensure that the system will remain easy to control. Even though it might look like a small inconvenience, it can be a quick improvement. But if the offshore location does not have the right battery supply in hand, it can quickly become more troublesome to allow users to operate the system.
Check the pre-and post-cleaning Freon level – Freon is a gas circulating through the HVAC system and creating cold air. When Freon moves through the system, it changes from the gas to the liquid and returns to the gas. Through this change that Freon absorbs heat and cools the air. Checking the pre-and post-service Freon level is very important. Pre-examination can let service technicians know if there is a leak in the system and explain why the unit does not run correctly. Post-check.
