       Presidents Corner     

The past several months have welcomed significant changes to the Dunham-Bush company, products, and reps. I am pleased to have been granted this opportunity to re-structure, re-define, and build upon what is already existing. 

I have a very strong team currently working with me, and we aim to continue to impress our competition with the Dunham-Bush product. We are ambitious, confident, and secure that 2012 will prove successful. Our office and warehouse complex is located in Hialeah, Florida serving all sales and service activities for the Western Hemisphere. 

We are excited to have you, our reps on our team, and we feel with such a stable structure in place our fortune is limitless. 
Thank you for being apart of our dynamic team, we sincerely appreciate the efforts, and support. 

Warm regards, 
David  Hogan

Discharge superheat for Rotary Screw Compressors

 

Importance of

 Discharge superheat in rotary screw compressors:

 

Typically on a Dunham-Bush screw chiller utilizing a flooded evaporator we try to maintain a minimum of 25F of discharge superheat (DSH).  By maintaining the proper DSH we can ensure the oil is being seperated from the refrigerant and keeping the adequate oil level in the compressor sump.  When the DSH lowers to unsafe operating parameters, the oil will leave the compressor and eventually get logged in the evaporator.  Once this occurs it will cause erratic behavior of the system and eventually cause unwanted alarms. Below are a couple of points that can be added to the logic of our microprocessor that will help maintain the proper DSH and smooth operation of your equipment:

 

  • Condenser fan cycling                 
  • Cooling tower fan control
  • Condenser water pump control
  • Condenser by-pass valve
  • Low DSH control, this feature will detect low DSH and unload the compressors until the DSH reaches an acceptable level

Tip of the Month
 
When using DB chillers you can add a shell and tube factory installed desuperheater for hot water reclaim for domestic use or other hot water needs. In addition to the desuperheater  producing free hot water, it also improves the efficiency of the chiller by 3%
