Welcome! We keep going until you have all of the information you need.[b/]. Extensive training & coaching also available.
Total gallons or pounds should be stamped on the name plate of the chiller, as I recall those hold about 200 gallons, but I am not 100% sure, the safe thing to do would be to have 6 or 8 empty 50 gallon drums on hand.
If you can find pounds of LiBr on the name plate I can convert it to gallons for you.

No reference to LIBr lbs on nameplate.Is there a PDF manual for this unit, showing drain locations?
Expert:  Phil replied 2 years ago.
The lithium bromide is distributed throughout the unit in different headers and pans.
I would contact Trane directly for those instructions, and demolition procedures if that is what is to take place.
contact Trane directly. Their email address is at the bottom of the last page.
It will take them a while to get back to you because it it is an unusual operation you and not so many people at Trane will be at all familiar with it.

Thanks Phil.I've drained these units before, just double checking if there's a written SOP. I'll contact Trane.
