MAIN WARNINGS
It is compulsory to carefully read the operating handbook before performing any operation on the machine: if the machine is started by unskilled operators it could cause serious damages to people and things. The operators responsible for the refrigerator use must be well trained. Therefore, the customer must check that the personnel training is suitable and when necessary, ask the builder to hold special training sessions. Each single machine component undergoes quality and dimensioning controls during the production process. All maintenance, adjustment setting and replacement operations described in this Instruction manual must be carried out ONLY AFTER having switched off the machine and disconnected the machine plug from the main line socket. While using the antifreeze liquid (if present) and the gas contained in the refrigeration circuit, the operator must wear special protective gloves and masks to avoid any sort of danger typical of their nature. The operator must wear special anti-slip and resistant shoes. The protection systems on the machine have been provided by the manufacturer to protect the operator during his work on the machine. These protection guards must NEVER be removed for any reason whatsoever while the machine is running. Never use the machine, which is equipped with an electric motor, in the presence of natural gas, petrol vapours or other inflammable vapours. No unauthorised operator must pass or stop near the lifting and handling area of the machine elements, while the operators responsible for such operations will have to keep at a suitable distance to avoid being hit by the elements hanging in the air. The electric and earth connection must be carried out by qualified and skilled operators according to the regulations in force. It is strongly advised to protect the users main line from overloading by installing a safety switch (magnetothermal switches) on the line.

The pressure value in the water tank must never exceed the atmospheric pressure value. The presence of magnetic or electromagnetic fields near the machine could compromise the correct function of the electrical or electronic parts. The ideal temperature and humidity levels for correct machine performance is standard room temperature. Check that the electric circuit is duly protected and that it corresponds to the motor features: the machine is equipped with an identification plate indicating the power, the frequency and the supply voltage. Check that the machine is provided with an earth connection and with a differential switch compliant with the regulations in force on top of the supply cable. The Builder will not accept any responsibility for the damages caused to people and things by a wrong ground connection. Only use the recommended types of gas and liquid: in case a different type is used, the Customer must first check the physical-chemical characteristics (included in the documentation attached to the element) and check the similarities with the recommended one: in case they are not similar, the Customer must contact the Builder about the product use.

Before any adjustment, maintenance and replacement operation the operator must wait for a while since the machine has been stopped, so that the parts subject to heating during the normal machine functioning can cool down.

CHAPTER 3- EVENTUAL ADDITIONAL DANGER RISKS 3.1 INFORMATION CONCERNING SAFETY CONDITIONS AND ADDITIONAL RISKS
This equipment has been conceived by reducing all the sources and situations of danger to the minimum. Danger conditions can occur only if the installation rules are not observed or because of a wrong use of the product. DANGER DERIVING FROM CONTACT BETWEEN PRODUCTS AND OBJECTS OR PERSONS The movement of the fan poses a danger. The protection grill has a utility pitch of less than 12 mm IP 2X between wires. A further hazard is posed by accidental contact with the capacitor whose aluminium winglets can cause cuts. The capacitor is protected by filtering panels, which guarantee adequate safety levels under normal conditions. The utmost care must be taken when removing or repositioning the filter. SAFETY REGULATIONS FOR ELECTRICAL EQUIPMENTS The causes of electrical risks are well known and prevention is not difficult if attention is constant. To reduce the number of incidents of an electrical origin, personnel must be informed of potential danger and instructed on safety procedures. MANAGERS RESPONSABILITIES Managers must be informed of potential risks of the system and keep electrical equipment personnel under control. Control consists in locating possible risk conditions and investigating problems found by personnel during maintenance operations. Any defective components must be repaired or replaced immediately. The manager must make sure that safety measures are observed without tolerating or accepting deviations, in as much as damage to persons or apparatus may occur. HIGH VOLTAGE Contact with high voltage circuits can provoke burns, shock, unconsciousness or death by electrocution. This may be caused by a scarce knowledge of dangers connected to use of electric apparatus. SAFETY REGULATIONS WHILE CARRYING OUT MAINTENENCE WITH MACHINE ON - personnel must not carry out operations alone; - whenever possible operations must be carried out using only one hand; - check instruments and conducting wires periodically; - check that personnel is fully aware of the apparatus components and maintenance procedures before carrying out any work; - use protective gloves; - open all apparatus power supply contacts before taking resistance values; - check that in the low voltage circuit high voltage is not present; - do not use magnetic utensils near strong magnetic fields.. - If theres a dangerous situation. NOXIOUS SUBSTANCES (XN) This unit contains and uses R22/R407c/R404a gas up to a maximum of 17 kg; the circuit is completely sealed. If a sudden leakage of refrigerant occurs, operators must move out of the vicinity and the room must be ventilated and dont use free flames.

Instruction, use and maintenance manual

02_10/02

Page 10

Model GC

Processing water chiller

SAFETY REGULATIONS TO FOLLOW WHILE OPERATIONS ARE CARRIED OUT - if constant functioning is not required, the system must be turned off; - before carrying out electrical maintenance observe the following: check that the maintenance technician does not have objects that can act as conductors on his person; inspect the work area and check that it is clean and that the floor is dry; check that the work instruments to be used are suitable and in a good state for safe intervention; - measurement instruments must be periodically calibrated; - check the procedure of the operation to be carried out before starting, checking the electric diagram to see how the system is structured; - while maintenance operations are carried out it is necessary that: the technician knows which circuits are high voltage no resistance measures are carried out in the live circuits one hand is used to carry out operations on powered circuits the instrument terminal must be earthed before carrying out operations on powered circuits - maintenance operations can be considered concluded only when all components have been reinstalled on the unit. SAFETY MEASURES ON REFRIGERATING CIRCUITS The refrigerant used for this apparatus can be dangerous if not used correctly, and it is therefore necessary to take the following precautions when handling this substance. - Never unload, stock or use the refrigerating liquid in the presence of flames, since the combustion produces a noxious gas (phosgene) if it gets in contact with the flame. - The cooling liquid must not come into contact with the eyes; - The cooling liquid must not come into contact with the skin, if contact occurs, the wounds must be treated in the same way as frostbite; - Avoid high concentrations of cooling liquid that can cause suffocation; if this happens, the person suffocating must be evacuated from the area and artificial respiration must be provided. DANGERS DERIVING FROM GAS LEAKAGE IN CASE OF FIRE Since the machine is typically installed away from heat sources and inflammable/explosive materials, there is a very remote possibility that it may be involved in a fire. Overheating due to natural events, such as sunlight cannot raise the temperature beyond 60 C inside the refrigerating circuit, and therefore below the TS and PS set. Full observance of the machine positioning instructions given herein is highly recommended. DANGER DERIVING FROM CIRCULATING FLUIDS WITH BASE OF WATER If fluid leaks, it poses the danger of coming into contact with electric parts that are not suitably protected against contact with the fluid. Tubes inside the refrigerator unit are capable of supporting up to 6 bar pressure; the used pump can reach a pressure max. of 5 bar. If regular maintenance is not carried out on the fixing system of the tubes, fluid can leak. WHEN TO DISCONNECT THE ELECTRICAL POWER SUPPLY Disconnect the power supply immediately using the switch at the top of the power line when: - the electrical power cable is worn or damaged; - maintenance operations or repairs are being carried out to the machine; - the machine is being cleaned. SAFETY ADVANCE FOR MAINTENANCE - wear protective gloves to carry out maintenance work; - always disconnect the electrical power supply before opening the protection panels; - wait a few minutes for the internal parts of the machine to cool before opening the protection panels; - do not meddle with the faucets on the gas/water circuit; - use appropriate warning signs when the machine is off for maintenance or repairs; - only use original spare parts; - use appropriate electric and hydraulic connections.

Model GC 5.2 OPERATING PRINCIPLE 5.2.1 COOLING CIRCUIT

Processing water chiller

The machine is equipped with a refrigerating circuit using a particular gas to cool down the water; please find below a list of the gases that can be used:

TYPE OF GAS R407c R22 R404a Standard Upon demand Only version LT

The gas contained in the circuit is pushed by the compressor inside the capacitor, where it releases heat. The gas becomes liquid inside the capacitor. Heat is removed from the gas and passes from a gaseous state to a liquid state. At this point the gas in a liquid form is forced towards the expansion valve and injected into the evaporator where it cools (expanding) and returns to the gaseous state. During this phase the water present in the evaporator yields heat to the cold gas. The compressor takes in the gas and the cycle recommences. In the standard version, the gas condensation takes place through an exchange of heat, by means of the air aspired by one or more fan through the condensing battery. The fan can be: of the axial type (mod. GC-A) or centrifuge type (mod. GC-C).

5.2.2 COOLING CIRCUIT WITH HOT GAS (OPTIONAL)


The cooling circuit fitted with the HOT GAS optional varies from the standard circuit in that it regulates the temperature of the water supplied to the evaporator by means of a solenoid valve, which regulates the passage of hot gas and mixes it with the cold gas discharged from the expansion valve directed towards the evaporator. This system enables the compressor to remain switched on at all times and only stops when the heat load is very low and the temperature reaches the set-point value.

Warning: The exhausted gas must be collected separately from any other waste material, not to damage the environment: once collected, it must be eliminated by a specialised company, in compliance with the regulations in force in the country where the machine is installed.

Only and EXCLUSIVELY use the type of gas indicated on the Builder plate.

8.4 HYDRAULIC CONNECTION


The machine can be hydraulically connected through rigid or flexible tubes to be connected to the rigid tubes on the machine right side: The rated pressure the tubes and line unions must withstand must be higher than 6 bar. If the operating water is sent to various operating machines, it is possible to assemble a multy-way manifold on the connection tube of the refrigerator. A closing cock must be assembled on the inlet and outlet unions of the refrigerator. For a correct functioning, it is advisable to use a filter at the entry of the refrigerator to keep all the system impurities. N.B.: The filter must have a diameter at least the same size as the diameter of the refrigerator connection (the Manufacturer recommends the use of a filter one size lager than the inlet section) with a degree of filtration of at least 200 microns.

8.5 USE OF ANTIFREEZE IN THE PROCESS WATER


The machine can operate without antifreeze up to a preset temperature of no less than +5C. In case of temperatures lower than +5C, it is necessary to use an anti-freeze agent. Even at ambient temperatures above 5C use of antifreeze is advisable as it confers better flow properties on the water in the system. Check that the antifreeze used does not contain substances that may corrode the basic materials used to manufacture the machine (steel, copper and aluminium). The Builder recommends the use of the following antifreeze liquid KLEENTEK CL3295 (containing Antifreeze agent).

8.5.3 ANTIFREEZE LIQUID FILLING SYSTEM FILL-CHILL (OPTIONAL, FOR VERSION GC 9 TO GC 55 ONLY)
Upon demand, the machine can be equipped with a device for the automatic filling of antifreeze liquid: it is made up of a tank called FILL-CHILL that must be connected to the machine by means of the rubber pipe supplied with the refrigerator automatic filling connection. The filling system is completely automatic and is equipped with an anti-flooding device, which stops the loading activity in the presence of water leakage from the machine. FILL-CHILL 120 = Cap. 120 Liter
Figure paragraph 8.5.3

Attention: The exhausted antifreeze liquid will have to be collected separately from any other waste material not to damage the surrounding environment; once collected it will have to be eliminated by a specialised company in compliance with the Regulations in force in the country where the machine is installed.

Make use of monoethylene or ethylene type glycol exclusively. The use of propylene glycol will damage the mechanical seals on the pumps beyond repair.
Only use the type of antifreeze agent recommended by the Builder : in case a different type is used, the user must first check its physical and chemical features (included in the documentation attached to the element)and check its similarities with the supplied one: in case they are not similar, it is necessary to immediately contact the Builder about the product use.

10.2 UNFORESEEN STOPPING DUE TO A POWER CUT


In case the machine stops because of a temporary lack of power, the machine will not start running again once the power supply is restored. If the machine supervisor wants that the machine starts automatically once the power supply is restored, he must set the parameter P7 autostart = 1 (only for models 9 to 55). This is poses no danger to people in the vicinity of the machine.

10.3 STOPPING THE MACHINE MANUALLY


If the daily or weekly breaks are short, the refrigerator unit can be stopped with the key.

If however, the refrigerator unit will remain inactive for long periods (holiday periods or plant stoppages), it is advisable to turn off the power supply by turning the power switch to position 0. In models 2 to 6, act on the main switch. Attention: The protection systems on the machine have been provided by the manufacturer to protect the operator during his work on the machine.

If the refrigerator is left switched off for long periods, the danger of freezing due to negative room temperature should be considered. Empty system to avoid this occurring.

10.4 RESET THERMOMAGNETIC PROTECTION (FOR VERSION GC 9 TO GC 55 ONLY)


1. Turn the main switch to 0 to open the electric board. 3. Turn the switch to 1 , to start it again.

2. Once the control panel closing the electric board has been removed, identify the magnetothermal switch according to the electric diagram supplied with the machine

4. Close the control panel, turn the main switch to 1 and restart the machine.

Model GC CHAPTER 11- MACHINE MAINTENANCE

Processing water chiller

I GC series refrigerators function autonomously and continuously and are therefore not fitted with fixed control or command positions. The machine is designed to function continuously for 24 hours per day. This rhythm of work can only be maintained if preventative programmed maintenance measures are adopted. Adequate maintenance is essential for long lasting machine function and optimum performance. The machine must therefore be inspected and receive routine maintenance in order to maintain the technical, productive and safety conditions established by the Manufacturer over time. Attention: Any extraordinary modification and maintenance different from the maintenance and replacement interventions described in this chapter must not be carried out without first contacting EUROCHILLER S.r.l. Company, who will decide whether to give their authorisation or not according to each specific case, or will propose the intervention of one of their qualified engineers. Please note that wrong interventions can cause anomalous functioning conditions, cause damages to the machine and be a source of dangers for the personnel using the machine. The Builder is not to be held responsible for the dangers that may derive from the above-mentioned operations. All maintenance, adjustment setting and replacement operations described in this Instruction manual must be carried out ONLY AFTER having switched off the machine and disconnected the machine plug from the main line socket.

11.1 PROGRAMMED MAINTENANCE


To maintain in operation the refrigerator in correct way, perform the operations of maintenance as suitable following: PERIODICALLY WEEKLY Cleaning filters panel. OPERATION OF MAINTENANCE

MONTLY

Clean the finned group capacitor using compressed air blown from the inside to the outside.

ACCORDING TO USE

Clean the plate evaporator (this operation must be carried out only by skilled operators).

To shut all the screw of the electric terminals. (AFTER 1 WEEK Check that all screws are properly tightened on all mechanical parts AND ANNUALLY) A complete maintenance programme can be obtained from Eurochiller Srl technical assistance department.

11.2 MAINTENANCE OPERATIONS FOR AXIAL FANS (VER. GC-A)

1. The fixing of the fan protection grid must be checked periodically(the screws must be shuted).

2. Clean the ventilator blades to eliminate any dust deposit.

Figure paragraph 11.2

11.3 CLEANING THE FILTERS PANEL


1. The filter panels must be cleaned periodically as excessive build up of dust can impede air circulation inside the refrigerator and therefore compromise functioning. 2. Remove the panel, situated on the rear side, upwards.

3. Clean the panels with a jet of compressed air or with flowing water.

4. The panels must be periodically replaced (depending on the environmental conditions where the refrigerator unit is installed) to guarantee complete filtering.

Figure paragraph 11.3

5. It is advisable to blow compressed air into the capacitor from the inside of the refrigerator to the outside every month without folding the aluminium winglets of the capacitor. N.B.: In this case, it is necessary to de-energise the machine and open a panel for an easier cleaning.

11.4 MAINTENANCE ON-OFF LEVEL SWITCHES


In case highly encrusting liquids are used, it is advisable to periodically inspect and descale the slide bar and the float, if necessary. If such problem occurs too often, use a filter with a higher protection.

11.5 MAINTENANCE PUMPS


When the pump is not used, empty it completely if freezing may be expected. Before restarting the unit, check that the shaft is not jammed and fill the pump casing completely with liquid. It is advisable to use a little quantity of anti-freezing agent to keep the most delicate part of the pump greased.

11.6 MAINTENANCE AN REGULATING DIFFERENTIAL BY-PASS VALVE (FOR VERSIONS GC 9 TO GC 55 ONLY)


The differential by-pass valve is positioned between the flow and return piping. This device does not require a particular maintenance. To adjust the liquid flow among the pipes, turn the knob to the desired value of the graduated scale (values indicating the difference metres of pressure between the inlet and outlet): The value 6 indicates that the valve is closed (more water passes). The value 1 indicates that the valve is opened (less water passes).

12.5 PARAMETERS DESCRIPTION


MEASURE AND VISUALIZATION PARAMETERS: They permit to define the visualization modalities of the temperature measured by the probe. CA - CALIBRATION: Positive or negative offset whose value is added to the value red by the probe from which is depending the control functioning. ru - UNIT OF MEASUREMENT: Determines the visualization of the temperature in Centigrade or Fahrenheit degree. It is to be remember that the change of this parameter modifies the visualization but not the Set and the Set limit ("LS" and "HS") programmed (eg. if the Set was 50C and the unit changes, the Set will rest 50F). dP - DECIMAL POINT : Allows the insertion of the decimal point on the display and therefore to determine resolution of the reading value in the range from -19.9 to 19.9 (on= with decimal point, oF= without decimal point) SET LIMITS PARAMETERS: They permit to limit the Set programming into a desired range, in order to avoid Set values which may damage the controlled plant. LS MINIMUMSET: Minimum value programmable as Set Point. HS MAXIMUM SET: Maximum value programmable as Set Point. TEMPERATURE CONTROL PARAMETERS: They permit to define the temperature regulator functioning and the output control in case of probe error. SP - SET POINT :Temperature control Set Point value. d - DIFFERENTIAL : Its the output OUT activation and deactivation value respect to the Set Point. HC OUTPUT FUNCTIONING MODE : It defines whether the output OUT has to control and Heating or a Cooling process (H=Heating, C= Cooling). rP - OUTPUT RELAY STATE IN CASE OF ERROR PROBE: Select output relay state in case of error probe (on = relay on, oF = relay off). COMPRESSOR PROTECTION AND DELAY AT SWITCH ON: They permit to introduce eventual delays at the output OUT activation in order to avoid compressor short cycles in the refrigeration applications or at each instrument start. When the output has to be activated but its inhibited by these functions the led OUT blink. PS - COMPRESSOR TYPE PROTECTION: Select the type of protection for the compressor against "short cycle". The possibles selections are: 1 = delay before start 2 = delay after stop 3 = delay between starts Pt - TIME DELAY COMPRESSOR PROTECTION: Time delay setting for parameter "PS" intended in min. During this time the output will be off. The output will be turned on therefore when the regulator required it and this time has expired. The function is not active programming Pt =0. od - OUTPUT DELAY AT POWER ON: Time delay of OUT relay activation after power on and expressed in min.

ALARMS PARAMETERS: They permit to program the temperatur alarms modalities. The high and low temperature alarm can be disactivated setting the relative parameters "HA" or "LA" at 0. When the alarm is functioning to stop the buzzer push any of the programming key. In the mean time of the alarm signalation, although the buzzer is silented, the instrument signalize the alarm through the AL led and it visualize, during the normal functioning alternatively "HI" (High Alarm) or "LO" (Low Alarm) and the temperature measure by the probe. (THESE ALARMS ARE NOT ACTIVED). HA - HIGH ALARM: Temperature value in respect with Set point above at which the alarm will be on (The alarm will be on when the process temperature will be upper then the value SP + HA). LA - LOW ALARM: Temperature value in respect with the Set point below at which the alarm will be on (The alarm will be on when the process temperature will be lower then the value SP - LA). Ad - ALARM DIFFERENTIAL: Value between starting and stopping of alarm signal (par. HA and LA). PA - ALARM DELAY AT POWER ON: Time delay after power on during which the alarm will not be activated (expressed in hrs).

Model GC CHAPTER 16- MACHINE DEMOLITION

Processing water chiller

Whenever and for whatever reason the machine needs to be eliminated and demolished all machine components must be dismantled separately and certain basic rules must be observed to protect public health and the environment. 1. All sheathes, flexible hosing and plastic components, or non-metal parts must be dismantled and grouped according to material type. This way wherever possible, materials can be melted down for recycling. 2. The machine body and all metallic parts must be dismantled and grouped according to metal type. This way they can be melted down and recycled. 3. The exhausted gas will have to be collected separately from any other waste material not to damage the environment; once collected it will have to be eliminated by a specialised company in compliance with the Regulations in force in the country where the machine is installed. 4. The motor oil must be collected and eliminated separately.
