Different types of portable water chillers will suit different applications.

Type of Materials

Here, you will note that most portable water chillers have the same type of materials.

So, you will concentrate on the quality of the different types of materials you need for portable water chillers.

The durability of Portable Water Chillers

You will look at the level of durability for the portable water chillers by choosing the most durable type.

It must have high-quality materials that are highly durable and will serve you for a very long time.

The efficiency of the Portable Water Chillers

It is upon you to choose a portable water chiller that can fit perfectly within your application demands.

Implying that you should choose portable water chillers that have the greatest impact on your production requirements.

What are the Main Components of the Portable Water Chillers?

Portable water chillers have varying components that perform different functions.

Here are the main parts that you should look at when choosing a portable water chiller.

· Compressor

The compressor is responsible for providing the right driving force that drives the refrigerant throughout the system.

There are different types of compressors such as a screw, reciprocating, scrolls, and centrifugal compressors.

· Expansion Valve

The expansion valve is responsible for expanding the refrigerant to gaseous form from the liquid form.

After that, it will use the force from the compressor to push the gas into the evaporator.

· Heat Exchanger/ Evaporator

The evaporator will help in the elimination of heat thus creating chilled water that flows to the condenser.

· Condenser

The condenser will change the state of the gas back to a liquid state as it flows back to the compressor.

How Does the Portable Water Chiller Work?

Portable water chillers depend on the principle of vapor absorption and compression.

It has a continuous flow of water which is the main coolant.

Remember, it begins from the main water storage tanks.

The refrigerant flows at low pressure and enters the evaporator where it is boiled using heat from the flowing water.

The refrigerant then changes from a low-pressure liquid and into a low-pressure gas.

After that, the low-pressure gas will flow to the compressor for compression into a high-pressure gas.

The high-pressure gas will flow to the condenser water.

Here, it removes heat thus cooling down the refrigerant.

As it cools down, it remains at very high pressure thus forming a high-pressure liquid.

This high-pressure liquid will flow to the expansion valve which controls the amount of liquid refrigerant entering the evaporator.

This will lead to a chilling effect as the refrigerant cycle begins once again.

What are the Quality Standard Specifications for Portable Water Chillers?

Since you are after the durability and efficiency of the portable water chillers, you should consider the quality standards.

You can know that a portable water chiller is efficient and of high quality by looking at the following:

  • International Standards Organization (ISO) Quality Standards
  • Current Good Manufacturing Practices (cGMP) Quality Standards
