A chiller is a device that can cool materials, buildings or equipment down. Therefore, the purpose of a chiller is to cool materials, buildings or equipment down by removing their heating energy. In a chiller, there is always a medium solvent or air to achieve the energy transformation from the materials to the medium solvents or air.
How does a chiller and cooling tower work
As we all know, a chiller is to remove the heat energy of materials, buildings or equipment by a medium solvent or air. A cooling tower is to reject waste heat to the atmosphere through the cooling of a water stream to a lower temperature. A chiller and a cooling tower both are about the heat energy transformation.
Cooling tower uses the contact of water and air to dissipate waste heat generated in industry or refrigeration and air conditioning through evaporation. The waste heat generated in the industrial production or refrigeration process is generally guided by cooling water. Spray the circulating water into the filler of glass fiber, which provides a larger contact surface, and the contact of water and air can help to achieve heat exchange effect.
A chiller can mainly be divided into two types of categories, which are water cooled chiller and air cooled chiller. These two different kinds of chiller have different working principles. Water cooled chiller works through the circulation of air, while air cooled chiller works through the transformation of coolant.
What is the difference between chiller and freezer
A chiller and a freezer both can cool materials or other things down. But these two cooling equipment are different. So what is the difference between a chiller and a freezer? The difference is that they have different applications, for example, a chiller is to cool the machines down that produces cold air, while a freezer is to cool foods and other items down.
What is the purpose of a chiller
The chiller transfers the heat of the object to be cooled with a lower temperature to the ambient medium to obtain the cooling capacity. The main performance indicators of the refrigerator are working temperature, cooling capacity, power or heat consumption, cooling coefficient, and thermal coefficient. The applications of chiller mainly includes the medical industry, CNC machinery field, UV printing and UV lighting field, laser field.
