A chiller is a device that can cool materials, buildings or equipment down. It is a low-temperature equipment that uses a compressor for mechanical refrigeration. On the basis of refrigeration, a water circulating pump is added to enable the cooled liquid to pass through the pipeline for external and internal circulation, and can provide low temperature liquid for external equipment such as a double-layer glass reactor, an organic synthesis device, a rotary evaporator, etc. It can also be combined with a rotary evaporator, a vacuum freeze drying oven, a water circulating vacuum pump, a magnetic stirrer and the like to perform multi-functional chemical reaction operations and drug storage at a low temperature.
What is a Chiller Used for?
A chiller can be used in laboratories, providing the cooling environment for small capacity of sample. It is especially suitable for chemical, biological and physical laboratories that need to maintain low temperature and normal temperature conditions. It is an essential equipment for medical and health, chemical industry, food industry, metallurgical industry, colleges and universities, scientific research, genetic engineering, polymer engineering and other fields. (The large-capacity low-temperature coolant circulation pump can be customized according to user needs.)
1. Industrial Application
As chillers are extremely versatile, many industries require chillers to lower the high temperature in certain industrial processes. For example, chillers are used to cool hot plastic in the plastic manufacturing, and maintain a certain temperature range needed in beverage industry. What’s more, they are often used in the vacuum system, paper and cement processing, compressed air and gas cooling, etc. Also, chillers can lower the temperature of various equipment in order to keep industrial processes run smoothly.
2. Chemical Application
Chillers are also widely used in chemical laboratories, cooling chemical substances and setting different temperatures so that different chemical substances can be turned into liquid from gas at their liquefaction points.
3. Medical Application
Chillers are available in the medical application as well. For example, chillers can cool the medical equipment to keep them run smoothly. And they are capable of lowering patients’ temperature, and keeping medical samples at a proper temperature as well.
Features of Water Chillers (DLSB Series Chillers)
- It can be matched with a variety of instruments (rotary evaporators, fermentation tanks, chemical reactors, freeze-drying equipment, pharmaceutical reactors, etc.)
- The circulation system adopts stainless steel material, possessing the functions of corrosion and rust resistance, cryogenic liquid pollution prevention
- The large-capacity opening bath, integrated with the external circulation, can serve as a freezing tank and provide cooling liquid.
- Digital display of constant temperature and microcomputer temperature control, simple operation and eye-catching.
Chilled Water VS. Condensed Water
Chilled water is the water that is made by a chiller, which condensed water is the water that is made by a condenser. They are both made through cooling systems. Hence, they are basically same.
But chilled water and condensed water have different applications. For example, chilled water system is used to absorb heat energy from a building or process in order to cool the building or process down. However, a condensed water system is used to remove that heat energy from the building and reject it to the atmosphere. Therefore, based on this difference, people should choose the right cooling system to operate.
