Andrews upgrades R22 refrigerant systems for well-known drinks company

One of the country’s best-loved soft drink manufacturers got in touch with us after enduring a number of issues with the cooling system at their northern base. The client’s twin and split air conditioning systems were operating on R22 refrigerant and these were failing fairly regularly due to the units being obsolete.

This continued unreliability prompted our customer to consider replacing the entire system with a modern and energy-efficient solution.

Prior to discussing which equipment might be best for the project, our client explained that they had two very specific stipulations which we were required to accommodate. These were guaranteeing the removal of the heat load from all condensers located inside the warehouse, and relocating two external VRF units to an external compound outside the main building. read more
