UK: All Seasons Hire has continued the expansion of its chiller fleet with the delivery of 18 new chillers to its London depot.

The arrival of the final units this week from the company’s Italian supplier, completes the order of 18 units covering a range of cooling duties from 100kW up to 750kW.

The additional units will strengthen All Seasons Hire’s ability to service any temporary cooling requirement in London and the south east.

The equipment is stored in East London yard space shared with the other specialist businesses from the HSS group. The company says this close proximity to both UK Platforms and Abird Generators enables the smooth delivery of complete packages including powered access for installation works and power generation.

Also included in the delivery are two 100kW heat pumps and three 160kW heat pumps. When combined with either the external air handling units or internal fan coils they provide the ultimate temporary climate control for the events industry, able to provide cooling in the day and switch to heating mode during the evening.

The heat pump chillers are also seen as the ideal equipment for use on large underfloor heating projects. Technical director Mark Crabtree commented: “These heat pump chillers can hold temperature to within +/- 2°C of set point and are designed to work with high flow rates associated with underfloor systems. Heat pump chillers are also ideal where low level heating is required however solid fuel boilers are impractical due to site restrictions.”
