ERW ax chillers: operation

ERW ax systems for industrial refrigeration of process fluids (water, water and glycol) are air-cooled units, using EC (Electronic Control) axial fans.

This range includes a series of models with cooling capacities from 2.1 kWf up to 595 kWf.

Three different versions are provided for different outlet fluid temperature ranges, agreed with the customer during the design phase. The entire range uses refrigerant with GWP 631.

ERW ax Liquid Chiller for Extreme Environments

Focus: electronic circuit microprocessor and hydraulic circuit

For thermostatting the water (glycol) and displaying the working pressures of the refrigerant gas with the possibility of remote diagnostics; an alphanumeric display communicates the operating ‘status’ of the unit. In multi-compressor machines, the microprocessor rotates the starts of the compressors to balance their working hours.

For different fluid outlet temperatures

The ERW series is specifically designed for applications in high temperature environments. Different variants are developed depending on the design temperature of the fluid outlet.

  • ERW ax MT: -12°C to +5°C
  • ERW ax HT: +1°C to +25°C
  • ERW ax HHT: +15°C and to +30°C

Versions and types of accumulation available

  • ERWA ax: with thermally insulated internal storage at atmospheric pressure.
  • ERWC ax: with hermetically sealed internal storage. Ensures the possibility of parallel connection with other power packs on the same hydraulic circuit if there is a need to increase cooling capacity at a later time.
  • ERWE ax: allows operation in the presence of external accumulation such as: tanks, vats or anything else representing a flywheel of liquid to be cooled external to the central unit.

Manual By-Pass for Industrial Chillers

Manual By-Pass

An accessory designed for the function of adjusting the flow rate of water or water/glycol from a hydraulic circuit so as to obtain a working condition suitable for the chiller and its use. This adjustment is carried out by controlling the discharge pressure of the chiller pump.

Expansion Vessel for Industrial Chillers

Expansion Vessel Kit

An accessory designed for the function of containing changes in "hydrostatic" pressure in a type "C" (pressurized) hydraulic circuit due to changes in water and/or water/glycol liquid temperature.

Expansion Vessel for Industrial Chillers

Outdoor Kit

This is an accessory consisting of 3 elements that ensure IP 55 watertightness of the electrical panel and its components for outdoor installation without any canopy or other protection. With OPT 01250 a cover is applied on the electrical box that protects the gasket of the switchboard door.
