Industrial chillers by Chillmax Technologies are machines that cool liquids and/or air. They achieve this by using a refrigeration cycle that allows them to extract heat from various liquids and release it into the environment. They are used before the chilled liquid/coolant is sent to a heat exchanger, process equipment or another liquid in a chilling system.
Liquid Chiller Applications
In a number of procedures, Industrial liquid Chillers are used to cool machinery, mechanisms and products. Metalworking, die casting, plastic injection moulding, welding, chemical processing and industrial refrigeration are examples of such processes. Liquid chillers are also used to offer large-scale air conditioning and gas cooling, as well as temperature control for pharmaceuticals and laboratory compounds.
Medicine and medical supplies, food and beverage, plastics manufacture, HVAC and power generation all benefit from liquid chillers.
Liquid Chiller Design
Chillers are available in a variety of styles and sizes at Chillmax Technologies. Chillers can be made as localised, small or portable devices for smaller purposes. On the other hand, large chillers may be constructed to keep the whole facility cool.
An industrial chiller’s cooling capacity is measured in tonnes or Btu/h. Coolers come in a variety of sizes and capacities. A tiny portable chiller, for example, may have a capacity of a fraction of a ton. A cooler, on the other hand, can be made up of many units and have a capacity of thousands of tons.
The type of refrigerant used will be determined by the temperatures that the chiller will encounter. Methane, brine, alcohol, sulphur dioxide, carbon dioxide, ammonia, water, R410A, R134A and R407C are all common refrigerants. Fluorocarbons and chlorofluorocarbons, or CFCs, were widely used refrigerants in past years. Because of their tendency to damage the ozone layer, CFCs have lost favour over time.
How Do Liquid Chillers Work?
Chillers cool by using vapour compression or absorption techniques. Both of these methods rely on a refrigerant that absorbs heat from a specific location. As the refrigerant condenses and evaporates, the heat is released in a different location. They may also use cooling towers or vents to help them speed up the cooling process.
A four-stage cycle is used by the majority of chillers: pressurization, condensation, depressurization and evaporation. It happens in the manner indicated below.
The vapour-compression cooling technique includes pressurization. The absorption cooling method does not include it.
If you have a vapour-compressor chiller, it starts the process by pressuring the refrigerant vapour inside the compressor. Different compressors are used in different types of liquid chillers.
The chiller machine transports the refrigerant into a condenser at this step, which is often the start of absorption cooling. The condenser is made up of coiling tubes that are surrounded by air or water. The refrigerant vapour cools and turns into a liquid within the condenser.
A substantial quantity of heat is removed during this step. The heat is then absorbed by the moving water or air around the tubes.
The newly refrigerated liquid is passed via an expansion valve and depressurised. Expansion valves detect both the actual and desired temperatures and respond with the correct quantity of refrigerant.
The liquid might begin to evaporate once it has been depressurised. The temperature of the liquid drops as it evaporates. The cooled liquid is sent via an evaporator or heat exchanger, which evaporates the liquid while absorbing the heat.
