What is an Industrial Water Chiller?
Industrial water chillers are used for controlled cooling of products, mechanisms and machinery in a variety of industries. An industrial chiller system removes heat from the process water and transfers it to air via a heat exchanger. Using the refrigeration cycle, water chillers are able to cool the water to below ambient temperature. Water chiller capacities are measured in tons (BTU/hr) of cooling.
How Does a Water Chiller Work?
Water is drawn from the tank, pumped through the chiller and back to the tank. An adjustable thermostat senses the liquid temperature, cycling the chiller to maintain a constant temperature in the tank. The water flows from the chiller to the application’s point of use and back.
Having a contaminant free “closed loop” system will increase your chiller’s efficiency and lengthen its life cycle. A closed-loop industrial chiller recirculates a clean coolant or clean water with condition addititives at a constant temperature and pressure to increase the consistent and repeatable variables.
What is a Chiller Used For?
Water chillers are used in a variety of industrial applications. Our chillers are the ideal solution to your cooling your spot welder system and other machinery. Some of the industries water chillers are used for include:
