Covering your air cooled screw chiller up to prevent dust, and make sure to tighten the pressure covers, valve nuts and screw off the discharge water nuts. 1)When cleaning the water system, the impurity water does not allow to go into the dry-type evaporator. Please turn off the inlet valve of your air cooled screw chiller, and turn on the outlet valve when cleaning the water system. Before adjusting the air cooled screw chiller, TopChiller personnel have to regularly check the chiller unit and accessories to ensure unit quality. The controller of air cooled screw chiller also has self-diagnosis, energy management; anti-freeze and operating mode automatic control abilities. 3)Micro-computer and electrical control elements are brand products and imported from the world.
The simple presence of oxygen in water can cause corrosion, but if the water and pipes are treated properly, this can significantly reduce the risk. However, if the water treatment is inadequate, sediment, minerals, and bacteria can enter the system. If there is a buildup of sediment or bacteria that causes oxygenation levels to differentiate, the metals can begin to corrode. In addition, any point where two different metals are used can be at risk for corrosion due to their different electrochemical properties. No matter how the corrosion occurs, it can cause leaks that will damage the chiller, reduce its efficiency, and possibly damage the area surrounding the chiller. Air-cooled chillers are more prevalent in small to medium sized facilities where space and water may be limited. The costs to install and maintain these chillers are lower than that of their water-cooled counterparts, but they typically have a shorter lifespan. These chillers are commonly used for restaurants, corporate and sporting events, and temporary structures.
Motivair’s Free-Cooling Chillers are designed to provide the owner with optimal, year-round performance in varying ambient temperatures. There is a lot of heat generated by friction through the printing rollers and as ink is dried in ovens. To keep the rollers in good condition and freshly printed paper in good condition chillers are used. They remove the heat from the process and keeps the parts and paper in good condition despite the high heat conditions. Air cooled chillers can suffer from damage, blockages and re-circulation issues. Low Ambient Motormaster Variable Frequency Drive option for fan. Allows process cooling to continue in lower outside winter temperatures. Unit was run and tested here at our Massachusetts facility prior to shipping. It has switch, piping and plumbing, and solenoid valves to direct flow as needed to a “free cooler” / liquid cooler in winter months if the temperatures support it, so you don’t use your refrigeration energy. That module is not included, and can be obtained from various suppliers like KRACK or similar if you are in a cold environment and interested in that feature.
They have commonly been used for medium and large installations that have a sufficient water supply. Water-cooled chillers can produce more constant performance for commercial and industrial air conditioning because of the relative independence to fluctuations of the ambient temperature. Water-cooled chillers range in size from small 20-ton capacity models to several thousand-ton models that cool the world’s largest facilities such as airports, shopping malls and other facilities. A chiller uses a vapor compression mechanical refrigeration system that connects to the process water system through a device called an evaporator. Refrigerant circulates through an evaporator, compressor, condenser and expansion device of a chiller. A thermodynamic process occurs in each of above components of a chiller. The evaporator functions as a heat exchanger such that heat captured by the process coolant flow transfers to the refrigerant. As the heat-transfer takes place, the refrigerant evaporates, changing from a low-pressure liquid into vapor, while the temperature of the process coolant reduces. An air-cooled chiller works by absorbing the heat from processed water.
And the Pathfinder is 100% configurable, customized to meet the size and performance needs of each application. Available from 100 to 565 tons, Pathfinder is a fit for a broad range of applications. Now we come to the topic of air cooled chillers, Air-cooled chillers are the most popular compared to other types of chillers because of easy operation and low maintenance costs. This protection makes sure all air cooled chillers have an outstanding cooling performance and long service life. An air-cooled chiller made by TopChiller consists of a scroll compressor, air-cooled type condenser, built-in water pump, and water tank to make a complete compressed refrigeration and water cooling system. Chilled water is used to cool and dehumidify air in mid- to large-size commercial, industrial, and institutional facilities. Water chillers can be water-cooled, air-cooled, or evaporatively cooled. Water-cooled chillers incorporate the use of cooling towers which improve the chillers’ thermodynamic effectiveness as compared to air-cooled chillers. This is due to heat rejection at or near the air’s wet-bulb temperature rather than the higher, sometimes much higher, dry-bulb temperature. Evaporatively cooled chillers offer higher efficiencies than air-cooled chillers but lower than water-cooled chillers.
This is a space where the refrigerant exchanges the heat and finishes the transfer. Air cooled chillers are also used to cool high-heat specialized items such as MRI machines and laser machines, in hospitals, hotels, big buildings, campuses, etc. Each air-cooled chiller manufactured by TopChiller is fully refrigerant charged with movable wheels, water pump, and inlet & outlet piping. Compact design and easy installation, Our air-cooled chiller features a compact design, easy installation/operation with low cost/labor to do regular maintenance. The high efficiency and durable air-cooled type condenser using the finned copper tube with aluminum and big air volume cooling fan. The Surplus Group’s comprehensive Used Chiller Proving Process addresses all aspects of a used air cooled chiller’s mechanical, operational, and physical condition, culminating in a live-load proving run. Additional features include emergency alarms, hot gas bypass, city water switchover, and casters.
For applications where cooling is required year-round, air cooled chillers have a distinct advantage over water cooled chillers. The water pump which installed in an air cooled chiller is designed to increase the pressure and the flow of the chilled water in a closed-loop system. The water pump must be configured properly to achieve the desired outcome. The thermodynamic cycle of an absorption chiller is driven by a heat source; this heat is usually delivered to the chiller via steam, hot water, or combustion. Compared to electrically powered chillers, an absorption chiller has very low electrical power requirements – very rarely above 15 kW combined consumption for both the solution pump and the refrigerant pump. However, its heat input requirements are large, and its COP is often 0.5 (single-effect) to 1.0 (double-effect). For the same cooling capacity, an absorption chiller requires a much larger cooling tower than a vapor-compression chiller. However, absorption chillers, from an energy-efficiency point of view, excel where cheap, low-grade heat or waste heat is readily available. In extremely sunny climates, solar energy has been used to operate absorption chillers. In this article we will be looking at how air cooled chillers work.
Rack-Mount water chillers has 2 temperature control modes as constant temperature and intelligent temperature control mode. Kaltra advanced chilled water plant with inverter-driven chillers offer a 30% reduction in energy consumption and environment-safe cooling with R1234ze gas.

The Vertical Air series are complete turnkey packaged chillers ideal for high volume operations. To maximize capacity and efficiency, each chiller contains efficient semi-hermetic compressors that are partnered with an oversized vertical discharge condenser. Energy efficiency – While water-cooled chillers are best known for their energy efficiency, air-cooled units feature options such as electronically commutated fans that can help minimize energy consumption. Additionally, the expelled heat from the cooling process can help warm facilities during colder months.
You might need to use chillers with multiple compressors that can work independently from one another so that if 1 compressor fails the chiller can still remain partly operational. Instead you should use multiple chillers, in parallel, of different sizes to meet the changing seasonal load at optimal performance with redundancy built in. For example you have a building with a cooling load of 2,200 Tons, then you should use combinations such as two 1,200 ton chillers or two 900 tones and a 500 ton or a 1,000 ton and two 700 ton chillers etc. Vapor absorption chillers will use a heat source to move the refrigerant around the system rather than using a mechanical compressor. The refrigerant in these chillers move around between areas of different temperature and pressure. Arrived in March 2014 to KIG were four immaculate Trane RTAA 125 ton chillers.
