8kw-in-frameUK: With demand for temporary cooling plant increasing, Carrier Rental Systems (CRS) has invested in a new fleet of high-performance chillers for UK hire.

Carrier has made additions to its medium- and high-capacity machines, spanning 220 to over 400kW of cooling, and new model sizes at the small end of the range to cater to applications with modest cooling requirements.

The air-cooled packaged chillers are all from Carrier’s AquaSnap scroll-based range.

Importantly, the new chillers are encased in a custom-built steel frame to protect them during transportation to and from site and enable high density stocking at CRS distribution centres.

“Our newly enlarged chiller fleet has even greater resilience, enabling it be deployed quickly and safely, and to withstand the often arduous conditions of temporary cooling duties in the field,” said Marc White, director, Carrier Rental Systems.

He added: “It is in the nature of hire projects that cooling plant sometimes has to be located in situations which are not ideal. In particular, a temporary chiller may have to be positioned on an existing base-frame; the integrated high strength steel cage helps stabilise the chiller plant and spread the weight, reducing point loading.”
