INTRODUCTION SYSTEM DESIGN The AIRDYNE GLYCOL-PAK fluid cooler is a heat exchanger designed to operate with water cooled dispensing equipment. The hot glycol from the water cooled condenser is piped to the GLYCOL-PAK fluid cooler, whereby the heat is removed from the fluid and rejected into the outside air. The cooled glycol is then pumped back to the dispensing equipment and the glycol is re-circulated as required by the operator. The system is controlled by a thermostat to shut the fans off, on Models GP-4 and up, when temperature is satisfied. Fluid Cooler is completely piped and prewired for low cost installation in the field. BENEFITS OF USING THE GLYCOL-PAK The closed-loop glycol fluid cooling systems benefits are two-fold. The soft serve shops air conditioning load is reduced as the compressor heat is not rejected into the conditioned space. Additionally, there is a dramatic savings in the water usage thus reducing the water and sewer bills. The cooled glycol is re-circulated in a closed loop circuit and never comes into contact with the outside air. There is no need for adding makeup water or the expensive maintenance and chemicals typical of open type cooling towers. FEATURES OF GLYCOL-PAK The systems accommodates up to 12 barrels. There are six standard models available from 2 to 12 barrel soft-serve freezers for frozen soft serve/ice cream. Each system is equipped with a durable galvanized cabinet, condenser with staggered copper tube coils with aluminum fins, centrifugal pump, fan motor assembly, fill port, pump bypass with adjustable pressure relief valve, automatic air venting valve, fan cycle thermostat on Models GP-4 and up, main fused disconnect and fluid manifolds. ENCLOSURE Durable, 16 gauge galvanized steel, processed to resist rust and corrosion. HEAT EXCHANGER Staggered copper tube coils with aluminum fins are installed in the glycol system to reject heat on the roof. -1-

CENTRIFUGAL PUMP Centrifugal pump is supplied with bronze impeller, internal overload protection and weather housing. Pump re-circulates glycol fluid from water cooled condensers to glycol-pak heat exchanger on the roof. FAN MOTOR Glycol-Pak is equipped with fan motors to reject heat. Fan motors are custom designed for efficient performance with internal overload protection. PUMP BYPASS A bypass valve is provided with every system to prevent pump deadheading if the condensing units are not calling for cooling. This prevents possible damage to the pump seals. The bypass valve is adjustable for different pressures. GLYCOL FILL PIPE A Glycol fill pipe is provided for extra fluid in the system. It is very important to have the pipe filled eliminating air in the system. AIR VENTING VALVE All Glycol-Paks are provided with automatic air venting valves to insure removal of air from the glycol system. This prevents system lockout. FAN CYCLE THERMOSTAT An energy saving fan cycle thermostat is provided to cycle the fan motors off when no cooling is required.

-2-

ELECTRICAL JUNCTION BOX An electrical junction box is provided with each system with main fused disconnect for fan and pump shut-off switch. GLYCOL FLUID A 50% propylene glycol and water solution should be used for cooling media. The cooling system capacity is approximately 5 to 15 gallons depending on the length of tubing between the cooling coil and freezers. FLUID MANIFOLDS Two fluid manifolds are provided with shut-off and bypass valves. Emergency water supply should be piped through manifolds for proper working of the system. City approved backflow preventer to be provided by plumber. ELECTRICAL CHARACTERISTICS Each Glycol-Pak is equipped with 230 volts, 1-phase, 60 hertz power supply with a total connected load of 9 to 22.5 amps depending on different model numbers. We can offer 230 Volts, 3 Phase or 460 Volts System as an option. SUPPLY AND RETURN PIPING Installation Contractors shall supply Type L copper piping only between Glycol-Pak and manifold.

INSTALLATION RECEIPT AND INSPECTION OF EQUIPMENT Inspect the Glycol-Pak and all accessories shipped for any damage or shortages. Any damage or shortages should be reported immediately to the delivering carrier. Damaged material becomes the delivering carriers responsibility and it should not be returned to the manufacturer without prior approval. Do not remove any shipping material until the unit is installed in its permanent location. CHOOSING A LOCATION FOR THE GLYCOL-PAK Unrestricted air flow and unit accessibility are prime concerns in locating the unit. Always install the unit as close to the dispensing equipment as possible to minimize the pressure on the pump head. Please contact AIRDYNE if the fluid coolers are to be located further than 25 feet away from soft serve machines. Always allow at least 3 feet of clearance on all sides. The unit is to be installed on to a level base that is strong enough to support the units weight plus operating glycol charge. A. Roof Mounted

Glycol-Pak units are designed to function up to 25 above the soft serve machines. Vertical distance within reasonable limits does not affect the performance of the units. The weight of the descending glycol pulls warmer ascending liquid. However, the length of horizontal piping, the 90 degree elbows and the valves included in the piping all affect the performance of the unit. They cause a drop in the system pressure, making the pump work harder. Due to this, the fluid cooler should be installed in such a way as to minimize the horizontal stretches of pipe. All valves should be kept fully open during operation of the unit. B. Ground Mounted

The Glycol-Pak should have 3 clearance on all four sides when installed on the ground. Make sure that the automatic purge valve is higher than the soft serve machines so that all air can be expelled automatically. If air purge valve is lower than the highest point of piping, it will lock-out the system and pipes will be full of air. The soft serve machines will stop running on high head pressure. Installer must install air purge valve model #2P773 at the highest point in field piping higher than soft serve machine. During start up, purge air from all vents by manual bleeding. Operate the system for one minute only. Purge all vents manually. Repeat this until all air is purged out and head pressure is normal -7-

LIFTING INSTRUCTIONS (Figure 2) The FLUID COOLER system is approximately 300 to 900 pounds. Careful consideration of lifting procedures should be made before the unit is lifted by any means. Particularly, any cable or other load-bearing devices must not be allowed to press against piping, electrical conduit of the motor control panel. The only part of the unit designed to carry any of the lifting load is the base. Lifting loads should be distributed evenly around the base to avoid any twisting. It is recommended that whenever the unit is lifted by a crane, frame be used as attachment points for the lifting cables as shown in Figure 2. The lifting cables should be prevented from contacting the unit by means of a spreader bar or similar device INSTALLATION AREA (figure 4) Figure 4 illustrates the overall dimension and installation requirements. ROOF RAIL REQUIREMENTS The total weight of the complete unit is shown in Figure 4. The location and installation of all equipment should be in accordance with all local code requirements. The unit should be place directly upon the roof rail. For light roof construction, vibration isolation pads can be used underneath the supporting frame. PITCH POCKET A 6 x 4 pitch pocket must be provided for electrical and glycol lines. After lines are installed, backfill opening with hot pitch to prevent water leakage into the building.

CONNECTION TO SOFT SERVE MACHINES FROM MANIFOLD

High pressure washing machine hoses are recommended for connecting each machine to the manifold inlet and outlet. The hose must allow maximum flow of glycol from the system. Enlarged fittings may be necessary to fit the drain and supply of soft serve machines. Page 1 illustrates a typical fluid cooler installation. Note the emergency city water input and drain provided with the manifold for easy change-over from glycol system to city water system. Dual check back flow preventer is provided for emergency city water input to the system. These are available from Airdyne with appropriate fittings. GLYCOL-PAK CAPABILITIES - TABLE #1

*Based on 25 Run only Heat of rejection is calculated at ambient temperature os 120 degrees Fahrenheit.

(208V/1PH/60HZ)

Provide sufficient valves and union to permit easy access to parts subject to possible repair or maintenance. All elbows, bends and horizontal pipes should be installed as to allow any air in the system to exit. Automatic operated vents must be installed on the top of any pipe run which can trap air. Venting is necessary to rid the system of air which can vapor lock the pump and prevent proper flow of the liquid. GLYCOL/WATER MIXTURE A. TYPE OF GLYCOL

The cooling fluid used in the Glycol-pak is a mixture of propylene glycol and water. There are two widely used types of glycol; propylene and ethylene (anti-freeze). Local codes must be adhered to, use only propylene glycol. DO NOT USE ANTI-FREEZE OR ETHYLENE GLYCOL IN THE SYSTEM.
-13-

B.

CONCENTRATION

The concentration of the glycol/water mixture to be used depends upon the climate of the region. The concentration has to be strong enough to prevent the liquid from freezing in the pipes during the winter. Based on the lowest ambient winter temperature. Table 2 helps determine which glycol-to-water ratio is advisable. WINTER TEMPERATURES PROPYLENE
Lowest Winter Temperature Degrees Fahrenheit to -8 -8 to -32 -33 to -60

GLYCOL

% GLYCOL
50% 60% 70%

C. MIXING GLYCOL AND WATER Regardless of the strength of the mixture, you must pre-mix the glycol and water prior to adding it to the system. The chemical reaction between the two will release oxygen, which is extremely undesirable in a closed-loop system. LEAK TESTING The system should be tested for leaks before adding glycol. Special attention should be paid to any area which will be of difficult access later. The system can be tested with air or water. If the ambient temperature is at or below freezing, the use of air is recommended. Test pressure should not exceed 50 psi. FILLING THE SYSTEM A. ROOF-MOUNTED FLUID COOLER To fill the system, pour the premixed water and glycol into the system. Fill the system until is full, then purge the air from ALL vents. Operate the system for a minute, then purge ALL vents again, and add glycol as required. Repeat the purging of ALL vents after the first hour of operation and again after several hours of operation. The unit has an automatic air vent which should eliminate the residual oxygen release. Method for ground-mounted unit can also be used. -14-

CAUTION: DO NOT START THE PUMP UNTIL THE GLYCOL/WATER SOLUTION IS IN THE SYSTEM. RUNNING THE PUMP DRY WILL RESULT IN DAMAGE TO THE PUMP SEALS. IMPORTANT: ALL THE AIR MUST BE PURGED FROM THE SYSTEM. Pockets of air will vapor lock the pump and prevent proper circulation of the liquid. If this happens, the soft serve machines will continually cut out on high pressure overload and you will damage the fluid cooler pump. To ensure purging of air, all elbows and unions must be upward, all horizontal stretches of pipe must be slanted for trapped air to flow upward. B. GROUND-MOUNTED FLUID COOLER

The Glycol-Pak Fluid Cooler may be the lowest point in the system. Consequently, the premixed water and glycol has to be pumped up into the system. To do this, close the shutoff valve. Open the hose bibbs. Connect a pump and a hose to hose bibb Number 2. Set the pump inside a bucket of premixed glycol and water. Begin pumping the glycol mixture into the system at FULL PRESSURE. Allow the mixture to flow through the system, out of hose bibb Number 3, and back to the bucket of glycol. For the return hose, close the hose bibb so that there is only a small flow of fluid or air. This builds a head of fluid which forces the air from the system. Once all the air is out, there will be a steady flow of fluid only. At this point, close off the two hose bibbs and open the shut-off valve. The unit has an automatic air vent which eliminates any residual oxygen release. IMPORTANT: To use this method, in order to circulate the glycol through the system, you have to pass through one of the soft serve machines condensers. For the inlet valve on the machine to open and allow flow through its condenser, the compressor of that machine must be operating. This is due to the fact that the valve opens or closes in relation to freon pressure and temperature. Do not forget to put mix in the machine. HOW THE FLUID COOLER WORKS A. PUMP The pump of a Glycol-Pak Fluid Cooler will run continuously. As the soft serve machines turn on and off, the glycol will circulate through their condensers and cool the freon within. This action will keep the compressors cool. When no machine is operating, the fluid will circulate from the pump through the bypass valve set at 15 psi and back to the Fluid Cooler.

-15-

B. FANS If the Glycol-Pak has 2 or 3 fans, the first fan will run continuously. The second two are thermostatically controlled. You simply set the dials inside the electrical box to a temperature for which the second and third fans will come on. When the temperature of the glycol leaving the Fluid Cooler reaches these temperatures, the second and third fans will come on automatically. After the glycol is cooled 7 to 10 degrees below the dial setting, the fans will shut off. For moderate climates, the second and third fans can be set at 70 and 60 degrees Fahrenheit, respectively. This will vary with the ambient temperature in your area. Choose a dial setting that works best for your particular climate. C. AUTO AIR VENT The pump will pump air bubbles from the glycol/water solution and direct them into the auto air vent. Inside of this vent is a float. When the float hits the bottom of the vent (meaning the vent is filled with air), it will automatically open and release the air until the float reaches the top. There is also a Schraeder pin on the top of the air vent for manual bleeding upon start up. D. SURGE TANK It is a system filling port for roof-mounted units. Also, it is a reservoir of glycol to replace the air released by the system.

MAINTENANCE Inspect the unit regularly for loose bolts and connections, rust, corrosion and dirty or clogged heat transfer surface (cooling coil). Check all lines for leaks and deformation. HEAT TRANSFER SURFACE Dirt and dust should be removed by brushing the fins and tubes and blowing loose dirt off with air hose. Should the surface be greasy, the motor should be removed and the fins and tubes brushed or sprayed with a mild alkaline solution or a non-flammable degreasing fluid. Follow up with a hot water rinse and dry thoroughly. ELECTRIC MOTOR Properly selected and installed pump and fan electric motors are capable of operating for years with minimal maintenance. Periodically clean dirt accumulations from open-typ motors, especially in and around vent openings, preferably by vacuuming (avoid imbedding dirt in windings). Check running amps and voltage. Fan and pump motor is provided with sealed ball bearings. Relubrication of the bearings is not normally required.

PROPER MIXTURE OF PROPYLENE GLYCOL & WATER To check the Propylene Glycol and Water mixture use a Hydrometer. Place a small amount of mixture in a container. Have the mixture at 20 Celsius. Check that the Specific Gravity is at 1.048 or a little higher (i.e. 1.049) but no less.
