The following checklist outlines the minimum required items to be completed by the company responsible for chiller installation. Every applicable item on this list must be complete prior to the scheduling of the chiller startup if a startup was purchased from Dimplex Thermal Solutions (DTS). Be sure to complete, sign and fax this checklist to ‘Medical Service’ at DTS (269‐349‐8951), prior to on‐site start‐up. Not returning this form completed and/or failure to have all items completed prior to start‐up may result in additional start‐up charges to the signee of this form.
DTS requires a minimum 72 hours notice after this checklist has been received before the startup can take place to allow scheduling time with local service. Paid factory technician startup visits require a minimum two weeks notice for travel coordination and scheduling. Use only the services of a qualified refrigeration mechanic for inspection and maintenance checks or service operations. Refer to the chiller manual for installation specifications.
Chiller location allows proper airflow and accessibility for maintenance according to manual.
Chiller is anchored and supported according to specifications.
Chiller is not located near a heat source (other condenser exhaust, ventilation ducts, etc).
Chiller is fully plumbed into the process equipment. Field piping sized and installed according to specs.
Fluid plumbing has been flushed clean. **DO NOT attempt to flush into or pressure‐test the chiller reservoir.
Fill the chiller reservoir with the correct glycol and water concentration (50% glycol outdoor chillers, 30% glycol indoor chillers). Use only distilled, de‐ionized, reverse‐osmosis (RO), or de‐mineralized water in the chiller. Extra water/glycol should be on hand during the startup to top‐off the reservoir as needed.
Type & Brand of Glycol Used*:
Incoming power service to the chiller matches the chiller power requirements per the data tag.
Field wiring is correct and to print. All connections and terminations are tight.
Main power disconnect turned on to chiller for a minimum of 8 hours before for start‐up. This is REQUIRED to allow compressor crankcase heaters to properly warm prior to chiller startup.
Split Refrigeration System (Remote Condenser Chillers Only): Refrigeration lines have been evacuated and charged with the appropriate amount of refrigerant. Refer to the chiller data tag and refrigeration schematic to determine the amount of refrigerant needed to charge the condenser and line set.
System has been checked for refrigeration leaks.
By submitting below I hereby acknowledge that all items on this list have been completed in accordance with the chiller manual installation specifications and that I agree to the terms listed above. I also acknowledge that any delays in the startup not due to fault of the chiller, DTS, or the local service representative of DTS and their resulting cost are my responsibility.
