What is an Industrial Chiller?

In the simplest of terms, an Industrial Chiller is a cooling or refrigeration system that cools or chills a fluid going to your process.  Industrial chillers are used to quickly and effectively cool equipment so that the manufacturing process continues at an optimum level.   Widely used in many different industries such as pharmaceutical, optical, laser, semiconductor, plastics, research institutions, food, beverage, etc.

How does an Industrial Chiller work?

A simple four step process can explain how a chiller chills.

1 – A refrigeration process transfers the process heat, thereby lowering the temperature

2 – The heat then evaporates and becomes a vapor

3 – The vapor reaches a compressor which in turn increases the compressor temperature and pressure

4 – The vapor from the compressor then reaches a condenser that lowers (chills) the temperature and the vapor, now cooled, turns back in to a liquid

Air-Cooled Chillers vs. Water Cooled Chillers

There are two different types of chillers – Air Cooled and Water Cooled  and with each type there are advantages and disadvantages.  Understanding the difference between the two options will help in determining the correct type of chiller for your process.

Advantages of Air-Cooled Chillers

  • Does not need a water source
  • Often require less maintenance
  • Easily set-up

Disadvantages of Air-Cooled Chillers

  • Normally a higher upfront cost
  • Heat is dissipated into surrounding area
  • Shorter life-span than water-cooled chillers

 

Advantages of Water-Cooled Chillers

  • Quieter than air-cooled chillers
  • More energy efficient
  • Requires less space than air-cooled chillers

Disadvantages of  Water-Cooled Chillers

  • Requires access to an outside water source (i.e. cooling tower water)
  • Additional maintenance may be required
  • May not be as portable

How can an Industrial Chiller be Used?

Air-Cooled Chillers and Water-Cooled Chillers manufactured by BV Thermal Systems are primarily utilized in the Laser, Semiconductor, Optical, Medical, Laboratory and Research Institutions.  Other industries where you my find chillers from BV Thermal Systems are:

  • Pharmaceutical – production of various pills, antibiotics, cardiac compounds
  • Beverage – often utilized in production of wine cooling and dairy products
  • Printing – chillers are used to remove the heat generated by the friction of printing rollers and to cool the paper from the ink drying ovens
