Air-cooled screw chiller is one kind of screw chillers that can supply a large cooling capacity for industrial cooling and air conditioning applications.

The working principle of air-cooled screw chiller is:

The shell and tube evaporator to exchange heat between water and refrigerant. The refrigerant system absorbs the heat load of water, which causes the water to cool down and generate cold water.

The heat is brought to the fin-type air-cooled condenser through the function of the screw compressor, and then dissipated to the outside air by the cooling fan.

What is the Best Location for Installing the Air-Cooled Screw Chillers?

You can install the air-cooled screw chiller in different locations as long as you adhere to installation specifications.

Implying that you can install the air-cooled screw chillers outside the building or inside a mechanical room.

One of the major requirements for locating the air-cooled screw chiller is proper aeration of the system.

Installing the air-cooled screw chiller outside the building will automatically guarantee a constant supply of air.

In case you have it in a mechanical room, you must provide proper ventilation for air to flow easily.

How Does the Air-Cooled and Water-Cooled Screw Chillers Compare?

In the screw chillers, there are two main types of cooling agents which include water and air.

Just from the name, you will note that the air-cooled screw chillers use air as the main cooling agent.

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

 Water-cooled screw chiller

Water-cooled screw chiller

You will also install the air-cooled screw chiller outside the building and the water-cooled screw chiller in mechanical rooms.

Air-cooled screw chillers are often quite noisy in comparison to the water-cooled screw chiller which are quieter.

Despite the above differences, both air-cooled and water-cooled screw chillers have similar components.

The working principles of the air-cooled and water-cooled screw chillers are also the same.

How Much Does the Air-Cooled Screw Chillers Cost?

The cost of air-cooled screw chillers varies between 3000 to 50,000 US Dollars.

There is a price variation due to the fact that air-cooled chillers are of various sizes and types.

The most efficient and high capacity air-cooled screw chillers often cost more than the low efficient counterparts.

You will also look at other factors such as type and quality of material which will also affect the price.

What are the Advantages of Using the Air-Cooled Screw Chillers?

There are many benefits that you will enjoy by using the air-cooled screw chillers.

Some of the benefits that you will realize with the air-cooled screw chillers include:

· High-Efficiency Rates

Screw chillers have very high efficiency working rates thanks to the high-efficiency load evaporators and condensers.

The condensers have a very wide louver fin that increases the efficiency of working with the air-cooled screw chillers.

· Reduced Size and Weight

Air-cooled chillers have very few components in comparison to water-cooled chillers thus making them smaller and lighter.

The lightweight and small sizes increase the ease with which you can move and install air-cooled chillers at different locations.

· Noise Reduction

Noise is often one of the greatest concerns when t comes to air-cooled screw chillers.

Modern types of air-cooled screw chillers often reduce the noise that the machine produces hence quieter operations.

· Proper Control Systems

You will also have proper controls of the machine due to the presence of the centralized control system.

It has features that will allow you to control the air-cooled screw chillers even from a remote location.

Are There Disadvantages of Using Air-Cooled Screw Chillers?

Yes, there are limitations that may discourage you from using the air-cooled screw chillers.

Here are some of the limitations that you should look out for.

· High Initial Cost

You will spend quite a lot of money when it comes to purchasing and installing the air-cooled screw chillers.

The cost of the equipment is high and you will have to hire professionals to help in the installation process.

· Maintenance Difficulties

In addition to that, you will find it difficult to maintain the hermetic air-cooled screw chillers.

Disassembly of the main parts of the air-cooled screw chillers is very difficult thus making the maintenance process very difficult.

· Noisy Type of Screw Chiller

Air-cooled screw chillers are often quite noisy in comparison to water-cooled screw chillers.

It is the reason why you have to install it outside the building to reduce the effects of too loud noise.

· Low Durability Levels

Generally, air-cooled screw chillers are often less durable in comparison to water-cooled screw chillers.

This is because of the exposure to the weather elements which affect the shelf life of the construction materials.

What are the Main Components of the Air-Cooled Screw Chillers?

Air-cooled screw chillers have various components that help in achieving the cooling effect of the air-cooled screw chillers.

Here are the main components that you need to consider when looking at the different types of air-cooled screw chiller.

 Air cooled chiller

· Control Panel

This is the unit with all the control systems for controlling and monitoring the operations of the air-cooled screw chillers.

It has a touch screen with an HMI that allows you to control the machine even from a remote location.

· Compressors

This type of air-cooled chiller has a screw-type of compressor that helps in the compression of the refrigerant.

There are two different types of screw compressors which help in the compression of the refrigerant to increase pressure.

· Electric or Power Unit

This is the part of the air-cooled chiller that will provide the machine with the power that it needs to produce a chilling effect.

You can control the amount of energy flowing through the air-cooled screw chiller just by setting the power unit.

· Evaporators

This is the part of the chiller that will eliminate the heat from the pipes containing hot water.

It is the section that will feed the refrigerant with the heat thus leading to a change in state to gas.

· Condensers

You will also use the condensers in the process of eliminating the heat from the refrigerants.

It also helps in condensing the gas refrigerant and changing its form from gas back to liquid after removing heat.

· Expansion Valve

The expansion valve will help in controlling the flow of refrigerant from the condenser back to the compressor.

It will reduce the pressure of the flowing refrigerant from the condensers and supply it in various quantities.

How Does the Air-Cooled Screw Chiller Work?

One of the most important factors that you have to supply constantly is air.

Air will flow from the outside environment and into the air-cooled screw chiller through the inlet.

The inlets have filters that block any form of debris or dirt that might be in the air.

As that happens, the impeller on the air-cooled screw chillers rotate and help in pushing the refrigerant.

As soon as you power on the machine, you will activate the release of the refrigerant from the refrigerant storage cylinder.

The refrigerant will flow to the compressor unit which will compress it between two rotating scrolls,

The compression process will increase the speed and pressure of the refrigerant and propel it to the evaporator.

At the evaporator, refrigerants will collect heat that comes from the flowing water and change its state to gas.

The heat within the evaporator will evaporate the fluid changing it from a liquid into gas.

The gas refrigerant with the heat inside will flow straight to the condenser at the same pressure and velocity.

While in the condenser, the cool air from outside will flow over the refrigerant and carry with it the heat.

This will create a condensation effect on the refrigerants thus changing them back to the liquid state.

The air will blow away the heat into the environment and leave the liquid refrigerant flowing straight to the expansion valve.

This is the final spot that will control the flow of refrigerant by reducing the overall pressure and speed of movement.

It will feed the compressors with the necessary amount of refrigerant thus allowing the process to continue.

What are the Main Applications of the Air-Cooled Screw Chillers?

Air-cooled screw chillers come in handy in different applications to help in controlling temperatures.

You will use the air-cooled screw chillers in different applications such as.

· Pharmaceutical Industry

In the pharmaceutical industry, you will use the air-cooled screw chillers in cooling of different types of pharma products.
