CENTRAL PLANT EXPERTISE

 

At Kiltech, our leadership are experts who understand your chiller plant operations no matter what your industry, because we’ve spent decades designing and building chiller controls, plant simulation, control and testing-equipment, along with an in depth background in centrifugal compressor design, chiller design and all variable speed plant control, testing and certification.

 

In addition, Kiltech has assembled a team with a diverse knowledge and experience base comprised of experts in thermodynamic, aerodynamic and fluid-dynamic engineering and modeling techniques, energy market trends, financial incentives, utility procedures and trends, project financing, performance contracting, graphic developers, system start up, commissioning and post-installation maintenance and service - all critical components to implementing and sustaining chiller plant operational goals.

Turbocor Development : Redefining Chiller Technology

During this period many of Kiltech’s current team members were developing and deploying the revolutionary Turbocor Compressor (the first oil free magnetic bearing compressor) along with the compressor control technology and logic. Roger Richmond-Smith, a Kiltech Partner and the CEO of Smardt Chiller Group, Inc., was a founding member of Turbocor, in addition to various other electrical and mechanical engineers. This knowledge, which is currently contained within Kiltech, provided the basis of the next generation chiller, thus redefining conventional operational capabilities and efficiencies.

2005 - 2007

The Kiltech team created the optimization logic to sequence anywhere from 2 to 8 variable speed compressors installed on a single chiller. This is the basis of CPECS and the Kiltech chiller controllers that empower all Smardt chillers. ...

CPECS Development: Kiltech is Founded

The Kiltech team created the optimization logic to sequence anywhere from 2 to 8 variable speed compressors installed on a single chiller. This is the basis of CPECS and the Kiltech chiller controllers that empower all Smardt chillers. Since optimizing a central plant is not very different than sequencing multiple compressors, the developed logic was expanded to incorporate multiple variable speed chillers piped in parallel. A two year heat exchanger and cooling tower modeling exercise was undertaken to further expand the control logic to incorporate variable condenser water flow through shell and tube heat exchanger, cross flow cooling towers, counter flow cooling towers and to prove the models.

2007 - 2010

In 2007 a scaled down version of the CPECS logic was deployed to approximately a dozen sites in the Southwest, U.S.A. on single chiller projects as an add on module to the tower and pump control software...

CPECS Deployment: Redefining Central Plant Controls

In 2007 a scaled down version of the CPECS logic was deployed to approximately a dozen sites in the Southwest, U.S.A. on single chiller projects as an add on module to the tower and pump control software of the Kiltech chiller controller (this add on is no longer offered). The following year a complete automation panel with capability of up to four chillers, four pumps and four towers was deployed to 17 sites.

CPECS Expansion: Continually Improving

In 2010 Kiltech moved the logic and the product to an open protocol platform and included the Enterprise SQL data base on Kiltech’s OEM server. An additional flash browser based front end was developed in 2011 and became the standard that is currently deployed to all CPECS projects.

2011 - Present
