CHILLER TESTING AND COMMISSIONING PROCEDURE


A. TESTING AND COMMISSIONING IN PLANTROOM


1.0 General Procedures For Commissioning

The following procedure is a brief guide how to carry out the testing, adjusting and
balancing of chiller water system. Further necessary reference will be sought directly from
the appropriate commissioning codes.

After ensuring that all pre-commissioning and setting to work checks have been complete
satisfactorily the following steps for Commissioning shall be followed.

2.0 Preparation

a) Ensure system has been flushed, refilled and properly vented.
b) Confirm all automatic valves are manually overridden into the full flow condition.
c) Ensure pressurization unit are filled and operational.

3.0 Control System

a) All controllers and actuators shall be tested and adjusted for the modulating range
to ensure correct operation of all control systems.
b) Control sequences shall also be verified.
c) All safety controls shall be tested and if necessary under simulated conditions.

4.0 System Start-Up

Ensure that the system to be balanced is in its normal operating condition, i.e.; all
normally open valves are open and normally closed valves are close. (In case where port
automatic control valves are installed they should be set to full flow through the coil and
by pass valve should be isolated).

a) Have an authorized person start up the pump. (Main discharge valve should be
regulated to 50% to limits initial motor start current).
b) Once pump have run up to normal operation speed, check motor running current to
ensure it is within the full load capacity of the motor. Pump developed pressure
should be measured to ensure it does not exceed the system design.
Page 1 of 15
T&C Procedure For Air Condition System
c) Whilst monitoring the motor running current and system pressure open the main
valve to its fully open position or within motor running current and system pressure
tolerances.


5.0 Pump Test

a) All pumps shall be tested by taking pressure gauge readings, motor power
consumption and speed and comparing them with factory test result curves.

b) The motor starter heaters setting shall be recorded together with the voltage
and amperage on each phase, and the power factor.

c) All pumps mounting frame vibration isolators and holding bolts shall be
checked and adjusted as necessary to minimize the transmission of noise
and vibrations.

5.1 Checking Procedure

1. Unit type, capacity, motor rating, model no, no. of units, and layout is inspected in
accordance to contract specification.
2. Phase rotation angle is inspected via pahe
3.
4. With pump running, gradually close main discharge valve fully and record
suction and discharge pressures.
5. Using shut off head, determine and verify actual pump operating curve and the
size of the size of impeller. Compare this data with the submitted data curves. If
the test point falls on the design curves, proceed to the next step; if not, plot a new
curve parallel with other curves on the chart, from zero flow the maximum flow.
Make sure the test readings were taken correctly before plotting a new curve.
Preferably one gauge should be used to read differential pressure.
6. Open the discharge balancing valve slowly to the fully open position; record the
discharge pressure, suction pressure and total head. Using the total head, read
the system water flow from the corrected pump curve established in step b.
7. If flow meter or calibrated balancing valves are installed, which would allow the
flow rate of the pump circuit(s) to be measured, perform the necessary work and
record the data. Compare this to reading recorded from the pump curve.
8. The total the pump flow rate should be within +-10% of the design requirement. If it
is low check pressure drops cross coil, heat exchanges, strainers etc and cross
reference to design figures for anomalies. If the duty is high it will need to be
regulated on the main balancing valve.

6.0 Piping Systems

a) All pipes, valves, fittings, etc. shall be tested to a hydrostatic pressure of 1
times the normal working pressure of the system, but in no case less than
100 psig. for a period of 48 hours. During this period pressure readings as
well as the ambient temperature shall be taken at intervals of 3 hours.

b) During the pressure test, all welding joints, bends, fittings and valves shall
be checked for any leaks or deformations for the entire piping system.
Expanded conditions of all pipings shall be carefully studied and any
necessary changes in hangers, anchors or guide locations shall be made.

c) All equipment not capable of withstanding the test pressure, shall be
disconnected when testing the piping with 100 psig., but shall be
reconnected and tested with actual working pressure and temperature.

d) The flow rates through all of the piping system components shall be verified
and adjusted until the proper temperature differentials are obtained at full
load operation.

e) All control valves shall also be tested for pressure drop and set for the
specified flow rates. When flow rate in the system has been properly set, the
spindle and yoke shall be clearly marked and its control handwheel
removed.


Testing Procedure

1. Pipe material shall be recorded specification against tender specification.
2. Pressure testing is conducted for 24 hours (150 PSI). No pressure drop is
allowed and pressure test is conducted through zoning.

document drawing.

Page 3 of 15
T&C Procedure For Air Condition System
9. All instrumentation and gauges installed shall be on approved tender and

pressure
b. Motorized valve regulator rating and required torque
c. Pressure gauge type rating and range for designated installation
d. Suitability and adequacy of air release valve location for effective air lock
removal

7.0 System Balancing

a. Carry out an initial scan of all balancing valve and log result on relevant test
document. Investigate any abnormally low reading form blockage or air lock.
b. With the aid of a single line schematic and the obtained test data identify the
index valve. (Commonly furthest valve from pump).
c. Whilst monitoring the reading on index valve work back towards the pump
adjusting each valve on the respective branch in turn until reading are
proportionally balanced. (Ideally an overall reading of 10% between valves
should be obtainable).
d. Activity (c) should be carried out on all terminal valves until each individual
branch is proportionally balance. At this stage you will generally find some
branches higher than the pump % duty and some lower.
e. Connect a manometer to the index branch and take a reading. Whilst
monitoring this reading, work back towards the pump adjusting each branch
valve in turn until they are all in proportional balance with the index.
f. If are system has more than one riser the next step would be work back
from the index riser carrying out the same exercise as detailed in (d) & (e).
g. Once all terminal, branch and riser valves in balance the by pass valve on
the 3 port valve arrangements can be set. These should be regulated to
pose an identical resistance through the by pass pipe as that of the coil.
(Bypass valves can be set at any stage of the balancing procedure as they
will not affect the overall balance).
h. Pressure drops across AHU coils, heat exchangers, condensers, evaporator
etc should be taken where possible and logged as necessary.
i. Valve settings should then be recorded and the valve handles locked in
position.
