How to Start the ARGOS Chiller

The ArgosChiller is at level 4 and is installed, managed and maintained by LBTO. It provides coolant at 6C
  • IMPORTANT: The chiller must be on before switching any ARGOS hardware.
  • In principle it should be always on during normal operation (it is turned off during Summer Shutdown).
  • To verify that the chiller is running, check the cooling water pressure reading in zabbix or directly in the housekeeping tab of the LAS Status GUI. It should be above 4 bar (usually 4.5 bar).
  • If it is not on, then ask somebody on the mountain to turn it on.
Note: The ArgosChiller can be remotely or manually controlled. As of Nov 2018, the "remote" option is not implemented, and therefore the procedure is to turn the switch on the unit to "local".


TODO 2015-02-19 When ArgosChiller monitor SW will be ready we should check the monitor to be sure that chilling is on. Even Zabbix can be used as a hint using the LGSW external monitor
