Default So, I do Refrigeration work

Most people don't realize there is AC and Refrigeration that runns even at ZERO degrees F Ambient.

I happen to be on call for this week. (I work for UofM, AC/Refrigeration).

I've been working on roofs and dredging through sometimes over a foot of snow to work on some of this stuff. Mechanical Refrigeration Equipment does not like to run when it's cold out, especially when it hasn't been properly equiped.

I go to this Air Cooled Chiller that was not running and sending in alarms. I've never heard of this chiller and don't even know where it is. But when I find it, it's a pretty new unit (all controlled via its own processor), and it tells me what's wrong with it on the digital display after I open up the panel. It pretty much said,

IT'S TOOOOO FAWKIUNG COLD OUT HERE FOR ME TO RUN!


Just thought I'd share. And yes, I'm so good at my job I got that bitch to run

I was programming a 600kw generator last tuesday and one of the settings in the control panel was "POOP - YES/NO" Acronym for a potentiometer operating on priority, which is stupid wording, but the engineer must have thought it was funny.

Well, one stamping plant I worked for had roof mounted chillers for the two 300HP air compressors that supplied all the air for the presses....it would be rather foggy around there on a cold morning

Do you take all the food out of your refrigerator and put it outside this time of year?

Yea, most data centers have AC units running all year. Computer equipment puts out a hell of a lot of heat.

Ok...question for you.


I used to work in a produce packaging facility. The cooler I worked in was supposed to be kept at a constant 40*, but whenever it was below 30 outside, I swear that room was like 80. Why?



Oh, I also hate ammonia. Our local dairy is cooled by the stuff, and one day It sounded like a jet was taking off on top of the building. I go out to look at whats going on, and I about collapse and nearly pass out from breathing that crap.
