The components of chilled water system mainly includes these seven parts: the compressor, condenser, evaporator, expansion valve, power panel, controls unit and the water box. Besides these main components, there are also several bits and pieces of working parts in the chiller water system such as tubes.
What are the main components of a chiller
The chiller consists of four main components，including compressor, evaporator, condenser, and expansion valve, which work together to achieve the cooling and heating effect of the unit.
The compressor is the core component of the entire refrigeration system, which is also the source of power for refrigerant compression. The condenser plays the role of outputting heat energy and allowing the refrigerant to condense. The evaporator is a heat exchange device that relies on the evaporation of refrigerant liquid (actually boiling) to absorb the heat of the cooled medium. The expansion valve is both a flow regulating valve and a throttle valve in the refrigeration equipment in the chiller refrigeration system.
What is the purpose of a chiller system
A chiller system is the equipment that is used to cool materials or equipment down through removing the heat energy of the materials or equipment. Therefore, the purpose of a chiller is to chill materials or equipment.
What is chilled water piping system
Besides the main components of chiller water system, there are many pipes around them, which comes together makes the chilled water piping system. Chilled water gets pumped through chilled water piping system throughout the building where it will pass through a coil.
What type of pipe is used for chilled water
In a chiller water system, Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC) piping is the one that is always used plastic piping materials. Because the characteristics of Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC) piping can fit the chilled water system very well. Any other materials could not be more suitable than Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC) piping.
How does a chilled water system work
A chilled water system is generally installed outside the buildings. Generally, a chilled water system works through putting the chilled water into the target equipment. In this way, the equipment get to be chilled.
