Other Product Types Related With Process Chiller

Process Chiller-The Ultimate FAQ Guide By TopChiller

What is Process Chiller?

Process Chiller is a type of refrigeration unit or a cooling system that is used in a wide range of industrial processes.

It is used to cool down the products, the production process, and the production machinery.  A Process Chiller uses different kinds of refrigerants like glycol, water, air, and oil.

Its applications are very widespread, from food industries to huge automotive parts manufacturing industries.

Process Chiller comes in Air-cooled and Water-cooled designs and different models based on the different types of compressors.

What are the Major Components of a Process Chiller?

The number of major components may differ according to the design, model, and applications. However, below four are the major components found in every Process Chiller.

  1. The Evaporator:

In the evaporator, the refrigerant absorbs all the excessive heat content from the system. This absorption of heat converts liquid refrigerant into a gaseous state.

  1. The Condenser:

The major function of a condenser is to discard the excessive heat collected by the refrigerant in the refrigerator.

This heat extraction lowers the temperature and provides the desired chilling in a Process Chiller.

  1. The Compressor:

A compressor is responsible for the increase in the pressure of the refrigerant. This change of pressure happens without compromising the gaseous state of the refrigerant.

  1. The Control Unit:

This being the heart of the Process Chiller is made of a modern microprocessor that controls all the functions, programming, and other activities.

What are the Additional Components of a Process Chiller?

Following are the certain additional components that can be added for specific functions for particular applications.

  1. Double Power System:

This is used when there are two refrigeration units in a Process Chiller. It is used to provide power to both refrigeration units individually.

  1. Electrical Additions:

These are circuit breakers, power meters, voltage meters, resistant meters, etc.

  1. Vibration Eliminator:

These are certain plastic, wood, or other pads that are used below the Process Chiller to overcome the vibrations.

What are the Characteristics of an Ideal Process Chiller?

  1. An Efficient Compressor:

The most important characteristic that makes it ideal is the efficient compressor. There are many types of compressors like scroll, centrifugal, and screw types.

A good compressor is key to the efficiency of the Process Chiller.

  1. The Advanced Control Unit:

Advanced control unit based on the most innovative microprocessor is the second most important characteristic of an ideal Process Chiller.

As it controls all the components and operations, its efficiency can make a great impact on the process.

What are the Outstanding Advantages of a Process Chiller?

  1. Uniform and Continues Cooling:

A Process Chiller can perform heat extraction continuously for a long time without any mistake. It will provide a uniform flow of chilling without any kind of fluctuations in the temperature controls.

  1. High Product Quality:

The uniform and accurate temperature control make the production process highly efficient. This makes you produce any kind of product with the highest level of quality.

  1. Economically Beneficial:

Because of its features, it saves a lot of time, energy, and resources for your industry, making the production processes economic.

How a Process Chiller Saves Energy, Time, and Cost of your Industrial Processes?

  1. In Process Chiller, you don’t need to add water every time for every cycle. The water is recirculated in the system, hence saving a lot of the cost of refrigerant.
  2. It makes your production process successful and products full of quality. This increases the production and ultimately you can save a lot of money.
  3. The process of Process Chiller is fast and efficient. This uniform process does not cause any kind of problem or hurdle. This process is completed faster, saving your time and energy.
  4. It provides a high level of heat extraction at lower power sources. This allows you to save a lot of electric energy.

How does a Process Chiller Work?

The working principle is simple and based on heat extraction by compression and refrigeration of the refrigerant used.

Stage 1: The refrigerant, either water or air is cooled to a particular temperature.

Stage 2: This refrigerant is sent to the compressor. Here it gets the suitable flow rate and pressure for further process.

Stage 3: After passing through the compressor, it enters the evaporator. Here it collects the excessive and unwanted heat and proceeds towards the compressor.

Stage 4: In the compressor, all the heat is discarded out of the system, and the desired cooling is achieved.

Stage 5: After the completion of heat extraction, refrigerant is sent back to the system and another cycle begins instantly.

What is the Importance of Process Chiller for your Industry?

The process of every machine is mechanical and involves the generation of heat during the process.

This excessive and unwanted heat is a threat to the process and regulation of temperature to a set-point becomes vital.

A Process Chiller is an efficient and accurate chiller that is the best choice to overcome this unwanted heat. As it has unlimited applications, it can be used in almost every process and every industry.

Process Chiller not only facilitates heat extraction but also keeps your machine safe and sound from the adverse effects of excessive heat.

What are the Applications of a Process Chiller?

  1. Plastic and Polymer Industries:

It is used in processes like injection molding, blow molding, thermoforming, etc for the reduction of temperature.

Process Chiller in plastic industries is mostly used to control the temperature of plastic manufacturing machines and molds.

  1. Food Industries:

All the processes in food industries like; chocolate manufacturing, baking of bread, soup making, juice making, etc are temperature-based.

In these processes, a Process Chiller is used to manage the temperature so that quality food can be made.

  1. Pharmaceutical:

Process Chiller in pharmaceutical industries helps in the extraction of process heat that is generated from the exothermic chemical reaction of drug manufacturing.

What are the Different Types of the Process Chiller?

  1. Central Process Chiller:

This is a heavy-duty one and can perform chilling up to 300 tons. This one is used on a high level to control the temperature of the whole area in which the process is taking place.

  1. Glycol Process Chiller:

In this, glycol is used as the refrigerant to eliminate excessive heat. This one differs slightly from others, as it has glycol.

  1. Centrifugal Process Chiller:

Centrifugal are the ones in which centrifugal type of compressor is used. The only difference is of the compressor, otherwise, the whole working principle is the same.

  1. Screw Process Chiller:

In screw type, the compressor used is based on two or more rotating screws that regulate the pressure and flow rate of the refrigerant.

  1. Scroll Process Chiller:

In these scroll type of compressor is used to provide chilling.

What is the Difference Between HVAC and a Process Chiller?

  1. Refrigeration Unit:

The most basic difference between a Process Chiller and HVAC is the refrigeration unit or refrigeration circuit.

HVAC has a combined refrigeration circuit for water and refrigeration. On the other hand, a Process Chiller has separate circuits.
