Chillers for Industrial Processes
Fluid temperature far below ambient temperature: when this is necessary, mechanical cooling allowed by a chiller for industrial processes must be used.
Requirement: industrial fluid temperatures close to zero
When an industrial process requires a fluid to be brought well below the wet bulb temperature, evaporative and adiabatic systems are no longer sufficient.Tell Us Your Needs
The solution: industrial chillers
An industrial process chiller (or refrigeration unit or chiller) uses the compression and mechanical expansion of a refrigerant gas: the aim is to bring the process fluid (e.g. water or water plus glycol) below zero degrees, well below room temperature.
A chiller or compression chiller is equipped with several thermal machines: compressor, evaporator, condenser and an “expansion valve”.
Zero water consumption
In its various phases of operation, a chiller supplies and extracts heat from a refrigerant gas used to cool the industrial fluid. In particular, the condensing phase of the refrigerant fluid can use air: air-cooled chillers, therefore, do not consume water.
