McQuay Chiller's QEII

Experience Proves Reliability

Nearly 20 years ago three McQuay 500-ton centrifugal chillers were installed onboard the Queen Eliza- beth II (QEII) to provide the vessel's main chilled water supply. Today, according to Cunard Line, all three chiller units are fully operational.

The example set by the QEII's

McQuay centrifugal chillers has lead to the line's successful sale to other maritime companies, according to

A1 Ward, director of customer sup- port for SnyderGeneral Corporation, the manufacturer of the McQuay centrifugal chiller.

Six McQuay chiller units were recently ordered by the Italian cruise line Costa for six of its passenger vessels. Mr. Ward commented that, "The Costa purchase represents a growing awareness of the benefits of positive pressure centrifugal tech- nology in marine environments."

Because McQuay chillers are en- gineered with positive pressure refrigerants, outside air, salt and other contaminants are prevented from entering the unit. According to

Mr. Ward, this results in a signifi- cant reduction in corrosion and related maintenance,"... a major ben- efit for cruise ship installations."

This advantage in using the posi- tive pressure chiller helped Costa to make its decision to select the

McQuay design, Mr. Ward said.

Costa has purchased the McQuay

Model PEH single compressor wa- ter cooled centrifugal chiller, the flagship of the McQuay product line, for each of the six cruise ships.

Offering many advantages, the

PEH medium pressure refrigerant system features five basic compres- sor frame sizes, ranging from 70 to 1,350 tons. Over 500,000 computer matched configurations are possible with such variations as impeller, gear ratio, condenser and evapora-

A significant environmental safety feature of the PEH centrifu- gal chillers are their ability to utilize

HFC-134a, a highly efficient refrig- erant that is completely ozone safe.
