What is a chiller?

Industrial chillers are used for controlled cooling of products, mechanisms and machinery in a variety of industries . A chiller removes heat from the process water and transfers it to air via a heat exchanger. Using the refrigeration cycle, water chillers are able to cool the water to below ambient temperature.Water chiller capacities are measured in tons (BTU/hr) of cooling.

How does a chiller work

Water is drawn from the tank, pumped through the chiller and back to the tank. An adjustable thermostat senses the liquid temperature, cycling the chiller to maintain a constant temperature in the tank. The water flows from the chiller to the application’s point of use and back.

Having a contaminant free “closed loop” system will increase your chiller’s efficiency and lengthen its life cycle. A closed-loop industrial chiller recirculates a clean coolant or clean water with condition addititives at a constant temperature and pressure to increase the consistent and repeatable variables.
