Q: How do you reduce downtime, maintenance and refuse going into landfills, while remaining productive?
What we've learned from customers is that many of them run expensive and lucrative processes (laser, ICP-MS, Ebattery-tester, reaction vessel, etc.) that require precise temperature control. Chillers are usually tucked away in closets or under the bench or in that spot in the lab where it is easy to forget…until they stop working, and so does your process. We discovered that 22% of warranty returns ended up being classified as "no problem found." We would clean the condenser filter and the chiller worked perfectly once again. A dirty condenser contributes to a very high percentage of refrigeration failures. What this meant to our customers was downtime and the temporary loss of important equipment needed to run their applications, as well as costly shipping expenses.
A:At PolyScience we developed the self-changing Dynamic Air Filter system, where the chiller will change its own filter at whatever interval the customer desires for up to three years.
All PolyScience DuraChill fractional chillers can be equipped with this life-changing innovation. By default, the filter will cycle once per month. This is a proactive approach to preventing breakdowns and lost time. There’s enough media for the filter to change once a month for three-years. The dynamic self-changing filter system has dramatically reduced the warranty return rates on these units. This relieves customers of the burden of downtime, shipping costs and the pain of missing equipment needed for their various applications.
As a bonus to the environment, because the self-changing filter only requires replacement every three years, the amount of additional waste created by DuraChill users is decreased, which means less landfill waste and ocean pollution. Solving the issue of “no problem found” also decreases the need to ship units back and forth to us, once again reducing environmental impact.
