Air Chiller: The Ultimate FAQ Guide

Choosing the right air chiller can be an overwhelming task.

That’s why our guide will answer all questions you have been asking about these chiller systems – from design, parts, working principle, choosing the right size to the troubleshooting process.

You will find everything about air chillers here.

What is an Air Chiller?

Air chillers are refrigeration equipment that you can use in industrial and commercial applications to cool and dehumidify air and fluids.

Air-chiller-system

Air chiller system

How Does an Air Chiller Work?

Well, before you purchase an air chiller, you must understand how the air chiller works.

It works on a principle where the machine actively absorbs excess heat from the process water.

After that, it will transfer the heat it absorbs into the surrounding air.

Here is a step by step process on how the air chiller works.

Step One: Evaporation Process

The operations within the air chiller begin with the process of evaporation within the evaporator.

Normally, the evaporator has a special type of liquid refrigerant which usually flows over the bundles of the evaporator tube.

The liquid will evaporate due to the amount of heat that will automatically change its form to steam.

Step Two: Heat Absorption

As that occurs, heat is often absorbed from the chilled water which is always in constant circulation through the bundles.

After that, the compressor will pull the refrigerant vapor straight from the evaporator and pump refrigerant fluid to the condenser.

The condenser will reciprocate the process and increase the air pressure and temperature.

Step Three: Condensation Process

While in the condenser tube, the refrigerant liquid or fluid will condense.

This will result in the release of the internal heat to the cooling water or air.

After that, the high-pressure fluid will move into the evaporator from the expansion device.

As that happens, the pressure of the refrigerant will fall as well as the temperature.

The process will continue in a repeat fashion until it produces a chilling or heating effect in the room.

How Does an Air Chiller Compare to a Water Chiller?

The working principles of the air chillers and that of the water chiller are somewhat similar.

In both machines, you will find the compressor, evaporator, expansion valve as well as a condenser.

The main difference between the two types of chillers is the fueling or chilling agent.

Besides, the air chiller uses air as the main chilling agent or fueling agent to cause chilling or heating effects.

On the other hand, the water chiller uses water as the main fueling agent to cause a heating and chilling effect.

The air and water chillers system will require basic maintenance to help in increasing durability and performance.

Water-chiller

Water chiller

On the same note, the air chillers are less costly and easier to maintain in comparison to the water chillers.

Apart from that, you will require a condenser water pup or cooling tower when operating the water chillers.

On the other hand, air chillers will operate efficiently without the condenser water pump or cooling tower.

In addition to that, the air chillers will consume more power approximately 10% more in comparison to the water chillers.

This is because the water chillers use wet surfaces to transfer heat thus making it more efficient than dry air surfaces.

Which Is the Most Appropriate Point of Installing the Air Chiller?

You should consider placing your air chillers in the mechanical room.

Apart from that, you can also place it next to the building or room that you intend to cool.

In most industrial settings, you will find the air chillers very close to the spot that requires cooling.

You can choose the spot for placing the air chiller by looking at the size of the compressor and chiller.

Depending on the size, you will place the big air chillers outdoor and the smaller ones inside the building.

You can get in touch with your supplier to help you determine the right spot for the air chillers.

What are the Benefits of Using the Air Chillers?

There are quite a number of benefits that you will enjoy by using air chillers.

Here are some of the advantages of using air chillers.

· Affordability

Air chillers are often very affordable to purchase and to install due to the fact that they have a few types of equipment.

· Occupy Less Space

In comparison to the water chillers, the air chiller will occupy very little space.

You can simply place them on the roof of your building with no need of constructing a mechanical room.

· Low Cost of Maintenance

You will also spend less in the process of maintaining the air chillers as it has very few parts.

The fewer the number of parts, the lower the cost of maintaining the air chillers.

· Simple Design

Air chillers have a very simple ergonomic design thus eliminating the need for extra sets of pumps for the condensers.

Do the Air Chillers Exhibit Any Form of Limitations?

Well, just like any other machine, you will have a few limitations of the air chillers.

Here are the main limitations or disadvantages of using air chillers.

· Noisy Machine

Air chillers often produce noise that may disturb the neighbors.

Since it sits outside, the compressors and rotating fans will generate a lot of noise that causes a great disturbance.

You should think of measures that will reduce the noise of the air chillers thus making it more efficient.

· Short Service Life

Typically, the air chillers have a very short life of service due to exposure to the sun and other weather characteristics.

The weather agents that bet upon the materials of the air chiller often deteriorate the service life of the equipment.

· Ability to Breakdown

You should also be on the lookout for damages that might occur on the air chillers.

You might also experience other problems such as blockage as well as issues with recirculation.

How Does an Air Chiller Compare to an Air Conditioner?

When you think about cooling off the rising temperatures, you might think of the air chillers or air conditioners.

Well, to help you make a choice between the two, here is a comparison between the air chillers and air conditioners.

· Air Chillers

Air chillers depend on the absorption refrigeration cycle to absorb heat from a particular surrounding.

You can keep the air chillers outside your building thus giving you more room space within the house.

It has a chiller that is responsible for eliminating the heat from the air before releasing it.

Air-chiller

· Air Conditioners

You will use the air conditioner to manage the temperatures within the room.

Implying that you can use it to either increase or reduce the temperatures within the room.

It has the capability of absorbing hot air and eliminating the heat before releasing it to the surrounding.

It comes complete with a condenser that will help in eliminating the heat from the system.

Air-conditioner-system

What is the difference between the Air Chillers and the Air Handlers?

You might also wonder why there is a difference between the air handlers and air chillers.

To clear the doubts you are having, here is a comparison between the air handlers and air chillers.

Air Handlers

You will use their handlers or handling units to circulate air as part of the HVAC system.

It comes complete with a blower, cooling and heating elements, filter chambers, dampers, and sound attenuators.

You will connect the air handlers to ductwork that will distribute conditioned air within the entire building.

It will also ensure that it returns the air back to the air handlers’ unit.

Air-handler-system

 Air handler system

Air Chillers

Air chillers depend on the absorption of heat from the system of air flowing through a tube before circulating it.

The cool airflow through pipes and coil units that thus dehumidifying and cooling the entire building.

It has a fan-driven air that will help in cooling off and eliminating heat from the flowing air.

You will place the air chillers outside the building thus consuming very little space within the building.

How Many Types of Air Chillers Do You Supply?

There are four basic types of air chillers that you can choose from.

Here are the main types of air chillers that you can choose from.

Reciprocating Air Chillers

It has an intake valve that will draw the refrigerant into the compressor.
