Chiller Chemistry ™

Hudson, the recognized national leader in Chiller Chemistry™, performs both an oil and refrigerant sampling program that is truly unique.
Essential to assuring efficient chiller performance and long life is the quality of the refrigerant charge and compressor oil. Sampling oil and refrigerant is an essential preventative measure that assures the timely disclosure of potential problems before they become more serious or even catastrophic. Traditionally, oil sampling has been widely recognized as an important preventative and diagnostic tool. But oil sampling is only part of the formula for assuring chiller health. The real value is achieved when both oil and refrigerant are sampled and the findings correlated and compared. The value is further enhanced by the tracking and trending of changes in contaminant levels over a period of time to accurately identify problems.

Hudson, the recognized national leader in Chiller Chemistry™, performs both an oil and refrigerant sampling program that is truly unique. Hudson's "Chiller Chemistry™" provides fast turnaround and an engineering and chemistry-based:

  • Certificate of analysis
  • Chemist's Interpretative report
  • Comprehensive engineering review with specific service recommendations, if necessary
This means that in addition to the raw empirical test results, Hudson provides expert interpretation together with specific service recommendations, if indicated. This information may present viable options for treating a detected problem before it becomes more serious. Depending on the precise problem, Hudson provides a tailored solution best suited for the particular situation. Additionally, chiller base-lining is provided to monitor and benchmark its' chiller chemistry and track changes over pre-determined periods of time to detect change in the refrigerant values and, therefore, assess whether the problem is progressive.
