What is a chiller used for?
Chillers are often used to cool products and machinery. Chillers are used in a wide range of applications: injection molding, tooling and die cutting, food and beverages, chemicals, lasers, machine tools, semiconductors, and more.
What is the working principle of chiller?
Industrial chillers transfer heat away from process equipment or products. Heat is usually transferred to and from the cooler using a water or glycol solution.
Heat is the most common cause of inefficiency. If the additional heat is not removed, it will continue to accumulate, resulting in low production efficiency, equipment downtime, and short service life. Chillers provide consistent temperature and pressure for industrial processes. Eliminating temperature and pressure variables optimizes the process flow.
Chillers can be divided into air-cooled chillers and water-cooled chillers; In terms of temperature control, it can be divided into low temperature industrial chillers and normal temperature chillers;
The temperature of the normal temperature unit is generally in the range of 0 degrees to 35 degrees, and the temperature of the low temperature unit is generally about 0 degrees to minus 100 degrees.
The water-cooled chiller uses a shell-and-tube evaporator to exchange heat between water and refrigerant. After the refrigerant system absorbs the heat load of the water to cool the water to produce cold water, the heat is brought to the shell-and-tube condenser through the action of the compressor. The refrigerant exchanges heat with water. After the water absorbs the heat, the heat is taken out of the cooling tower through the water pipe and dissipated.
- Water-cooled chillers work more efficiently than air-cooled chillers.
- Low energy consumption and long service life.
The air-cooled chiller uses a shell-and-tube evaporator to exchange heat between water and refrigerant. The refrigerant system absorbs the heat load of the water to cool the water to produce cold water, and the heat is brought to the finned condenser through the compressor, and then dissipated to the outside by the cooling fan.
Compact structure, small size, high heat exchange efficiency and low noise
