SMARDT Case study

Australia

Looking for a significant reduction in running costs, Moonta house has replaced their existing Trane fixed speed air-cooled chiller with a high-efficiency, oil-free Smardt AD054 chiller. Since the installation, the chiller has achieved a massive 40% energy usage reduction. Smardt service partner Service Air has produced a clean and professional install on this chiller replacement project.

Achieving energy efficiency and cost saving chiller operations were of prime importance to Arnprior & District Memorial Hospital, and replacement of the existing 150-ton chiller with 3 SMARDT 80 ton modular units, met the new 240-ton requirement of cooling to handle future hospital expansion. Also, SMARDT maintenance and repair costs are 40% lower over the life of the chillers.

An ageing and energy inefficient chiller using ozone unfriendly CFC 11 refrigerant, needed replacing at the “CSSS d’Arthabaska et de l’Érable” Social Services Health Center. Following a technical management assessment, the main goals were to ensure sufficient capacity for future needs, lower maintenance costs, and reaping the benefits of energy savings. A SMARDT 270 ton Water Cooled chiller was deemed to be the best fit, and since installation and operation in 2007, this customer has been very pleased with the significant energy cost savings that have been achieved with the new SMARDT chiller.

Installation of an energy efficient SMARDT chiller has brought impressive energy savings for this customer. The challenge was to ensure the customer got the right SMARDT product to meet and surpass expectations of energy savings in their building and to get it installed on time and within budget. The new chiller installation has fully met all of the customer’s needs and expectations, and anticipated energy savings have been readily surpassed. With the operation of the SMARDT chiller, noise levels have also been considerably reduced and a valuable contribution is being made to California’s energy reduction and greenhouse gas emissions policy.

The chiller project at the University of Laverne, CA, was driven by utility rebates and lowest total cost of ownership for the university. Access and installation inside a tight space, plus energy efficiency and least maintenance were also key factors, and SMARDT was able to provide industry best energy efficiency in a low profile design. In addition, maintenance is greatly reduced because SMARDT chillers use no oil.

The 200,000 sq. ft NFL Films studio complex in Mount Laurel, N.J., houses the world’s largest sports film library, and reliable efficient cooling is an absolute necessity.

Prior reliability and maintenance issues resulted in NFL Films purchasing and installing two new latest generation technology and energy efficient SMARDT chillers. The oil-free centrifugal compressor design boosts energy efficiency and reduces maintenance and operating costs, and since installing the SMARDT chillers, a 10-12% monthly reduction in the consumption of electricity has been realized. Said John Rauch, Operations Manager of Marubeni Sustainable Energy, the company that provides building operations services for the NFL Films complex: “With the SMARDT chillers and their Turbocor technology, we believe it’s the best investment we could have made.”
