General Description:

An Industrial Chiller is a highly efficient cooling system that reduces the temperature of the process fluids, machinery, and industrial spaces by eliminating heat from the system. This heat is released into the outside environment.

It works on phase change, heat flow, and boiling point principles. On heating, the liquid coolant is converted into gas. On cooling, it turns back to liquid. The heat keeps moving from high to low concentration.

Different components of an Industrial Chiller include compressor, evaporator, control unit, power panel, pump, filter, expansion valve, etc. A change in pressure applied to the coolant influences its boiling point.

TopChiller manufactures various Industrial Chiller models used in different kinds of applications. These include metal plating, food processing, injection molding, plastic manufacturing, pharmaceutical and chemicals,commercial printing ,transportation manufacturing, machine tooling and die-cutting,semi-conductors ,process cooling, and oilfield production.

Which Types of Industrial Chiller do you have?

We have three different types of Industrial chillers for you to choose from.

Here are the three main types of industrial chillers that you should pay close attention to.

Industrial air chiller


Industrial air chiller

Air chiller uses air as a cooling agent that assists in getting rid of excess heat from commercial and industrial applications.

Industrial Water Chillers

Water chillers use water as the main cooling agent which will get rid of too much heat from the industrial application.

 Industrial water chiller

Industrial water chiller

Industrial Evaporative Condensed Chillers

This is the most efficient alternative that you can opt for among the industrial chillers.

It employs the principle of evaporation to help in transferring heat from the room into the atmosphere.

How Does the Industrial Water Chiller Compare to the Industrial Air Chiller?

Well, the main difference between industrial air chillers and industrial water chillers is the cooling agent.

Just from the name, you will note that industrial water chillers use water as the main cooling agent.

On the other hand, industrial air chillers depend on water as the main cooling agent.

Apart from that, the components of the industrial water chillers and industrial air chillers are almost the same.

In addition to that, both industrial water chillers and industrial air chillers have subcategories which include:

  • Reciprocating Chilling Systems
  • Screw Driven Chilling Systems
  • Centrifugal Chilling Systems
  • Absorption Chilling Systems

What is the difference between Industrial Water-Cooled Water Chiller and Industrial Air-Cooled Water Chiller?

Cooling towers or industrial water-cooled water chillers use humid streams of air.

In this case, the cooling agent will involve a mixture of water spray and an ambient air stream to get rid of heat.

On the other hand, industrial air-cooled water chillers use currents of ambient air to help in getting rid of excess heat.

Air-cooled water chiller

Air-cooled water chiller

Apart from that, the industrial water-cooled water chillers often cost less to acquire even though it wastes water.

Water-cooled water chiller

Water-cooled water chiller

Air-cooled water chillers are often costly but you can use them in areas with a limited supply of water.

How does Air Cooled Screw Chiller compare to Water Cooled Screw Chiller?

Air-cooled screw chillers are devices that use air as the main cooling agent.

On the other hand, the water-cooled screw chillers use water as the main cooling agent.

Despite the difference, both types of chillers depend on screw compression technology to cool different systems.

Air cooled Screw Chiller

Air cooled screw chiller

What are the Industrial Chiller Components?

The industrial chillers work with the assistance of various components that contribute different functional ideas.

Here are the main components of industrial chillers that you ought to know more about.

· Evaporators

The evaporator is responsible for picking the unwanted heat from the industrial application and into the refrigerant.

After that, the refrigerant will move the heat to the cooling towers which will eliminate and expel the heat.

· Compressors

You will depend on the compressors to create the greatest pressure difference that will help in moving the refrigerant.

There are different types of compressors in the market including screw, scroll, reciprocating and centrifugal compressors.

· Condensers

You will use the condensers to eliminate the heat that the refrigerant collects from the industrial application.

You can either use the air condensers or the water condensers to assist in getting rid of excess heat.

· Expansion Valves

The expansion valve is responsible for the expansion of the refrigerant thus increasing the volume and reducing its pressure.

An increase in the volume of the refrigerant from the expansion valve will enable the refrigerant to pick heat from the evaporator.

· PLC Control System

The PLC control system is responsible for configuring and programming the industrial chillers to work accordingly.

It also allows you to operate and monitor all the operations of the industrial chiller from a remote location.

· Power Unit

The power units provide sufficient amounts of power that can run the functions and activities of the industrial chillers.

It comes complete with switches and fuses that cut off power supply systems in case of excess flow of power.

Industrial chiller parts

What are the Applications of the Industrial Chillers?

You will use the industrial chillers to draw enough heat from different industrial applications.

Here are some of the industrial applications where you will use the industrial chillers.

  • Plastic industry in applications such as injection molding
  • Food and beverage industry
  • The chemical and pharmaceutical industry
  • Metal finishing industry
  • Semiconductors industry
  • Laser cutting industry
  • Machine tooling and die-cutting industry
  • Composite manufacturing industry
  • Commercial printing industry
  • Transport manufacturing industry

What is Industrial Chiller Working Principle?

You must have the right knowledge of how the industrial chillers work for a better production experience.

Here is an explanation detailing how different types of industrial chillers work.

· Industrial Water Chillers

Here, you will have a condenser that is cooled with water as the main cooling agent and a water-cooling tower.

You will use this type of chillers in industrial applications where the supply of water is plenty.

It has relative independence to the fluctuation of temperatures thus making it the most efficient mode of industrial chilling systems.

The operations begin with the flow of the refrigerant within the industrial chillers towards the evaporator.

At this point, the refrigerant is still a low-pressure liquid or gas flowing towards the evaporator.

The heat coming from the process water will heat the refrigerant and change its state from liquid to gas.

After that, the low-pressure gas will flow to the compressor where it will be compressed into a high-pressure gas.

It will gain enough pressure and momentum to flow to the condenser.

While at the condenser, the condenser water will eliminate the heat from the refrigerant changing it to a high-pressure liquid.

With enough momentum, the high-pressure liquid will flow straight to the expansion valve.

The expansion valve is responsible for controlling the amount of high-pressure liquid flowing to the evaporator.

At that point, the entire process of the industrial water chiller begins all over again.

· Industrial Air Chillers

Just like the industrial water chilling systems, industrial air chillers begin the entire process within the evaporators.

It begins with the mixture of low-pressure liquid and gas systems which enters into the evaporator to collect heat.

This is the heat that comes from the industrial application that will heat the refrigerant thus changing it to gas.

In its gaseous state, the refrigerant will flow to the compressors which will compress it into a high-pressure gas.

The high-pressure gas will flow from the compressor straight to the condenser.

While at the condenser, an air cooling agent will collect the heat from the high-pressure gas.

After that, the high-pressure gas will change into a high-pressure liquid and flow to the expansion valve.

The air-cooling agent will eliminate the heat to the atmosphere as it blows away.

The expansion valve will control the amount of high-pressure liquid flowing into the evaporator.

It will change its state from a high-pressure liquid into a low-pressure mix of fluids as the process begins all over again.

Industrial Chiller

· Industrial Evaporative Condensed Chillers

Evaporative condensed chillers

 Evaporative condensed chillers

Evaporative condensed chillers maximize the process of heat rejection through maximum efficiency.

It employs a recirculating water system that provides continuous wetting of condenser tubes.

At the same time, the fans will draw enough air over the tubes leading to evaporation of the water.

The water that evaporates moves along with the heat thus getting rid of the heat from the entire system.

The evaporation rate is usually the function of wet bulb temperatures.

Low wet-bulb temperatures lead to a reduction of condensing temperatures while increasing thermal efficiency.

It requires less airflow and coil surface in comparison to air-cooled chillers thus increasing efficiency while reducing noise levels.

How do you Maintain Industrial Chillers?

You should strive to reach the peak efficiency of the industrial chillers by maintaining them regularly.

You must, therefore, have a schedule that you must adhere to strictly when maintaining the industrial chillers.

The maintenance process of the industrial chillers involves cleaning the systems such as vents and tubes that supply cooling fluids.

Apart from that, you must also make sure that you clean the filters to get rid of debris that will hinder proper airflow.

You must also schedule a proper inspection of the entire system to check every part of the industrial chillers.

During this period, you will replace the worn-out parts and also refill the oil, water, and refrigerant reservoirs.

In addition to inspection, you must also lubricate the moving parts of the industrial chillers to reduce the effects of friction.

· Centrifugal Compressors

You will use this type of compressor to supply high volumes of refrigerants while using very limited pressure.

It has moving parts that make them a favorite as they conserve a lot of energy while producing high refrigerant flow.

· Screw Compressors

This type of compressor has male and female screw compressors fitted in a single housing unit.

As the screw rotors rotate, it leads to a compression of the refrigerant thus increasing the refrigerant pressure.

· Scroll Compressors

You can also opt for the scroll compressor which will compress the refrigerant as automobile superchargers.

It also employs the services of a vacuum pump to help in the compression and pushing of the refrigerant.

What is the Difference Between the Shell & Tube Evaporator and the Brazed Plate Evaporators?

There are two types of evaporators that you can have on the industrial chilling systems.

Hera is the two types of evaporators that you can use in different chilling applications.

· Shell and Tube Evaporators

This type of evaporator has the refrigerant flowing in the tube side and the process fluid on the shell side.

it has very low-pressure drops and can have an entire capacity of about 500 tons in standards construction.

· Brazed Plate Evaporators

One of the factors that influence the cost of industrial chillers is the type of industrial chillers.

On average, you will pay around 1,300 US dollars per ton of the industrial air-cooled chillers.

On the other hand, you will pay approximately 1,700 US dollars per ton of the industrial water-cooled chillers.

You will spend about 260,000 US Dollars on a 200-ton industrial air-cooled chiller plant.

On the flip side, a 200-ton water-cooled chiller will cost you between 340,000 and 400, 000 for the water-cooled chillers.

How Do You Troubleshoot an Industrial Chiller?

There are particular instances when you will experience trouble with the industrial chillers.

You can know the source of the problems by troubleshooting your industrial chiller.

Here are some of the problems and solutions that you might come across.

· High Discharge of Pressure

It is a very common problem that occurs in water-cooled chillers due to improper treatment of the water.

It can also be a result of low water levels within the system resulting in the minimal flow of water in the condensers.

You can solve this problem by ensuring that you treat the water and ensure proper water levels within the system.

· Low Discharge of Pressure

It usually occurs when the suction valve of the industrial chillers has partial closures and also through refrigerant undercharge.

Apart from that, the ambient temperatures can be too low and obstructed or dirty evaporators.

You can solve these problems by setting up the systems well and configuring the valves accordingly.

Apart from that, you should maintain and clean the evaporators well within a particular schedule.

· Low Suction Pressure

You might also experience low suction pressure due to low refrigerant charge and blocked expansion valves.

Apart from that, you must also look at the filter driers and the strainers for any form of obstruction to airflow.

You must have a proper filling system where you will automatically fill the refrigerants to maintain proper levels.

· Electrical Faults

There are cases where your industrial chillers may fail due to electric faults such as improper connections and loose wires.

With the help of an electrician, you should be able to restore the power connections and solve the electric faults.

What are the Limitations of Using an Industrial Chiller?

Despite the numerous benefits, you may also come across a few limitations of using industrial chillers.

Here are the main limitations that should never discourage you from using industrial chillers.

· High Cost of Purchase and Installation

Industrial chillers are often very expensive to purchase and to install within your industrial applications.

You must have a proper budget that will be able to sustain the purchase and installation process smoothly.

· High Levels of Maintenance

You will also spend a considerable amount of money and time in the maintenance process of the industrial chillers.

The higher the frequency of maintenance the more the downtime thus limiting the production process as well as time.

· Requires Mechanical Room

You must also have a mechanical room where you will house the industrial chillers.

This is especially true when you are dealing with water-cooled industrial chillers.

· Leads to Wastage of Water

You must also have a proper source of water for the water-cooled industrial chillers.

It leads to a lot of wastage of water especially if the area does not have enough water supplies.

What is the Energy Consumption of Industrial Chillers?

Industrial chillers use an average of more than 40% of the total industrial energy consumed.

This is considered a very high amount of energy considering it is responsible for cooling purposes only.

It is, therefore, very important to ensure that you enable the most efficient mode of energy conservation and maximizing production.

How does Vapor Compression Technology work in Industrial Chillers?

Vapor compression technology uses the reverse-Rankine cycle which you can also identify as vapor compression.

It employs the use of any of the four types of compressors which include:

  • Reciprocating Compression
  • Screw Driven Compression
  • Scroll Compression
  • Centrifugal Compression

Most of the above compressors use power from electric motors, gas turbines, and steam.

In this case, you will use electric power to drive the vapor compression technology due to high-efficiency levels.

It is also the easiest source of power that you can use to cheat the system and also cool with the available refrigerant.

Here, the heat engine will run backward where heat will flow from cold reservoirs to hot reservoirs.

The latent heat of vaporization from the refrigerant transfers heat while pressure changes control the absorption and expulsion of heat energy.

Apart from that, you must make sure that the boiling point of the refrigerant in use is at fairly low levels.

Are there New Technologies in Industrial Chillers?
