Ontario Hospital Follows Step-By-Step Approach to Update Chiller Plant
Kingston General Hospital is the major tertiary care referral facility complementing community hospitals and other health care providers serving Southeastern Ontario. Three of the four chillers serving the hospital were over 30 years old, and used R-11 refrigerant. The machines selected were two Trane CenTraVac centrifugal chillers, Model CVHF, rated at 515 and 777 tons. These replaced the old machines which had been rated at 337 and 445 tons, for an increase in capacity of 510 tons, within the same floor area. Further, these machines would not require an electrical service upgrade.
