Mechanical Cooling: Industrial Chillers

Efficiency and performance... below room temperature

Do the fluids in your process lines need to reach temperatures below ambient? The solution is mechanical cooling, which is possible through chillers, i.e. industrial compression chillers. On the other hand, temperatures of even tens of degrees below zero can be reached.

Requirement: very low temperatures

The basic requirement that a compression chiller meets, through mechanical cooling, is certainly the low outlet temperature that can be achieved.

However, it is not the only one. If we talk about an air-cooled chiller, a further advantage is the saving of water resources, which are scarce in some parts of the world. There is no shortage of mechanisms for saving energy, which is essential for the internal processes of an industrial chiller but has become equally precious in recent years.

Solution: compression chillers

Compression chillers, commonly used in most industrial plants, use a refrigerant gas to dissipate heat from the fluid to be cooled. In turn, this gas uses a refrigerant circuit to dissipate this heat and continue its refrigeration function.
The compression chiller is therefore a ‘complex’ machine and these are its basic components:

  • evaporator;
  • compressor;
  • condenser;
  • lamination valve.

The mechanical compressor is a fundamental part of this cycle and is what gives mechanical cooling its name. In some cases (as in water-cooled chillers) an evaporative cooling tower can be integrated to support this heat dissipation process.

Preliminary Assessment

Many interlocutors come to us with a very general idea of their industrial refrigeration needs: this is normal. That's why we stimulate the sharing of technical information.

Customized Design

We believe that integration with the best accessories on the market and the careful and 'unified' selection of internal components can make the difference.

Custom Chillers and Turnkey Plants

Production facilities and the characteristic of the installation area also have important effects on the design: because one cannot stop at the listed solutions.
