Case Study

Emergency Solution Puts Production Back On Track

A plastics manufacturer based in the Midlands turned to Aqua’s hire division when they encountered an emergency breakdown scenario with the Chiller unit on their plastic thermoforming production line.

For clients working within a 24/7 manufacturing facility, equipment breakdown can have disastrous consequences. Any threat of interruption to production can cost heavily in downtime, loss of revenue and even financial penalties. At Aqua Hire we fully understand the challenges our clients face. Our extensive knowledge of the chiller market enables us to arrange a temporary hire solution to site quickly and efficiency, getting that all important production back on line.

Aqua supplied a 300kW Chiller hire unit and flexible hosing which linked to the client’s existing weir tank. This, used in conjunction with a standby pump, enabled the chilled water to be recirculated around the tank, restoring the process cooling. The problem with the malfunctioning chiller could then be further investigated whilst production continued unheeded. Read more on emergency solutions.

Our Chiller Hire range has the full support of a national network of engineers. Who will ensure that your equipment is correctly and promptly installed. Hire units can start at as little as £100 per week!

Our equipment can be hired for either short-term or long-term, depending on your requirements. Some of our clients prefer a long-term Hire solution, rather than full purchase due to the flexibility of our Hire solutions.

For those clients looking for a more permanent solution, but without heavy capital outlay, we also offer Contract Lease Hire. This is available on all the products within our current range, on either a 1, 3 or 5 year term. This allows cooling systems to be placed within an Opex rather than Capex budget and kept completely off the balance sheet.

Aqua also keep a range of Chiller Hire units and equipment in stock, available for immediate delivery from our main UK depot. Some of these units will be ex-demo, usually in excellent condition, but the fact that they have been pre-used is reflected within the price.

Why Hire Chiller Units?

Reduced capital spend – Purchasing a chiller unit can involve significant outlay upfront, with every unit purchased becoming another asset that depreciates over time. Renting chiller units allows you to move from capital spend, to operational spend. Keeping the units off your balance sheet and improving your tax efficiency

Fixed operating costs – The chiller hire agreement is inclusive of maintenance and support and you benefit from regular, fixed payments. This helps with budgeting and negates the need to have a contingency for repairs or secondary maintenance agreements

Complete flexibility – Where your business is occupying a property temporarily or operating short or perhaps test productions runs, chiller rental provides you with the cooling you need for as long as you need it. And when it’s time to move on, or change production, the chiller goes back to Aqua

Increase or decrease provisions as you require – With a broad range of chiller units available, you can add or reduce capacity whenever you require. With rental durations starting at just one week, scaling provisions is also more cost-effective than maintaining standby units

Cost-effective back-up provisions – For mission-critical applications, redundant units are essential for providing fail-over cooling. Rather than purchasing chillers – doubling deployment costs – you can reduce the outlay by using hired backup units
