The Result – MRI Emergency
At a large and busy patient scanning facility in the South every MRI scanner is connected to a chiller that keeps each unit functioning at optimum capacity. The cooling to the unit is essential as chiller breakdown would result in the postponement of vital patient appointments, adding to admin for pressured staff as well as extra distress for the patients at what is usually an anxious time.
When the incumbent chiller broke down, an emergency response was needed when the in house team found the chiller to be beyond economic repair and patients were stacking up in the waiting room for their appointments at the scanner. It was ICS Cool Energy to the rescue, arriving on site within two hours of the call.
A rapid temporary solution to allow normal patient service to be resumed quickly and with the minimum of fuss was the goal. A ‘ready to go’ fully serviced hire chiller arrived on site and the faulty unit was disconnected and moved a few feet away. The rental unit was connected to the existing unit’s pipework, allowing a faster turnaround with minimal disruption. In fact all the pipework for the temporary unit was completed within 12 hours, allowing the unit to reopen with disruption minimised. The customer said “I have nothing but praise for the speed and efficiency of service that we received and the extra mile you went to achieve this”.
We’ve been really pleased with the support and results including a reduction in call-outs, improved machine up-time as well as some unexpected benefits too.
