Avoided Production Shutdown

The world’s second largest provider of print and multichannel solutions, Quad/Graphics, avoids shutdown of their large volume printing facility thanks to emergency chiller replacement.

Challenge

  • To avoid a shutdown of a magazine press caused by an aged chiller overwhelmed by the summer heat wave.
  • High heat and humidity threaten production and paper products, which could cause astronomical costs.

“This customer has had a long-term relationship with Harshaw Trane. Our chiller engineers worked to locate a ‘quick-ship’ chiller replacement. and our team coordinated with the installing contractor to provide a quick delivery and installation of the new unit.” – Joe Sykes, Harshaw Trane Account Executive

Solution

  • Take advantage of 20-year relationship and service contract with Harshaw Trane.
  • Replaced the old chiller in critical time using one found in storage and avoided the extra cost of installing a rental.

Results

  • Shutdown avoided.
  • New, permanent chiller system installed in record time.
  • Extra rental installation costs avoided.
  • Printing production proceeded without interruption with no loss of revenue or product.
