The calculated Coefficient Of Performance (COP) for chillers in a baby milk dairy company was found to be much lower than the benchmark value. Root cause analysis for the low perfomance revealed that the causes are poor maintenance, together with the direct exposure to sunlight of the chillers, and high air temerature in the suction area.
Adopting good house keeping measures, including periodic maintenance of the chiller, fans, and fins, as well as relocating the chiller suction duct and installing shades over the chiller shall improve the COP, reducing 23% of the chiller energy consumption.
