  • Save Energy on Electronics Cooling

    Did you know that modern computer cooling equipment may be more than what modern technology needs to stay cool? The data used to calculate the cooling needs of computer equipment is actually based on the technology and formulas created for computers in the 1950s- well before the days of microprocessors and small computers. According to The Green Grid, companies all over the world are wasting energy and carbon cooling their computers when they could cool the devices while consuming much less energy. While it is true that computers and other...

  • Give Your Chiller A Little Space

    If you are in the market for a new cooling system, you may be overwhelmed by the numerous options available to you. Unless you know the exact specifications of the system you want to buy, there can be a lot of confusing information. This is not to say that cooling system manufacturers deliberately make choosing their systems difficult, but rather, that these systems are complex and each of them have their own benefits and quirks. To know which one is best for you will take some time and research. But...

  • Air-Cooled Chillers for Everyday Use

    Sitting in my required chemistry class in college nearly bored me to death. I vaguely remember my professor talking about refrigerants and their chemical forms and makeup and how some are really bad for the environment and can no longer be used, such as CFCs, and some are okay, such as ammonia, and continue to be used. Beyond that, all I cared about was passing the class and never wanted to think about it again. Little did I know, five years later I would be writing about refrigerants and chillers....

  • Air Vs. Water Chillers

    Liquid chiller manufacturers typically create two types of liquid chillers. The first kind of chiller is an air-cooled system, while the second system works with water-based cooling. Both kinds of systems have their own advantages and disadvantages, and can be useful for different cooling needs and situations. Use this handy guide to help you determine when to use which type of cooler. Air coolers: Air chillers use ambient air to cool a heated space. The ideal factory temperature range for air coolers is between 60 and 90 degrees Fahrenheit. The...

  • Mokon Introduces Newly Redesigned Blown Film Air Coolers with Improved Energy Efficiency

    BUFFALO, N.Y. (December 8, 2009) Mokon announces their redesigned Blown Film Air Coolers that offer improved performance, energy efficiency and reduced space requirements. This new compact design features an air inlet diffuser that creates a more uniform airflow across the cooling coil and decreases delta temperature approach. In addition, the leaving air chamber is insulated to reduce condensation while providing the coldest air possible to the air ring. The BFC Series offers an increase in blown film productivity, especially in warmer climates or environments where ambient air temperatures rise during...

Industry Information

Air Cooled Chillers

Air cooled chillers use air to absorb heat from a process liquid and transfer it into the atmosphere. Air cooled chillers are one of three major types of liquid chillers, providing a straightforward chilling option used in many industrial applications. The other two types of chiller are water-cooled chillers and evaporation-cooled chillers.

Air cooled chillers are a common type of liquid chiller because they are simple to install, easy to maintain, and typically less expensive than water-cooled chillers and evaporation-cooled chillers. Air coolers eliminate the need for a cooling tower or condenser water pump, so they often take up less space than other types as well. However, air cooled chillers require more power to operate, typically consuming approximately 10% more power than a water cooled unit. This is because of the need for higher condensing temperatures (120° F to 140° F), combined with the fact that dry surfaces transfer heat less efficiently than wet surfaces. Large air cooled chillers are usually placed outdoors. Since the heat from the process liquid is transferred into the air, air cooled chillers can be used strategically in systems in which the additional heat they discharge is beneficial. For instance, the hot air produced by air cooled chillers can be directed to help heat facilities during the winter. Air cooled chillers can be used for applications including troughs, tanks, nozzles, mixers, rolls, air coils and radiators, lasers, molds and dies, among others.


Air cooled chillers work by piping a refrigerant through a condenser coil and blowing air through the coil in order to condense the refrigerant and dispel the heat into the atmosphere. The cooled refrigerant can then be sent back through to where the heat is being generated so as to continue its job of cooling. Air cooled chillers are designed to lower the temperature of any liquid such as water, chemical coolants, oil, brine, alcohol, acids, and other fluids, although water and water mixed with a coolant additive are by far the most common. These coolants can in turn be used to cool various processes or my be used to cool and dehumidify air for air conditioning systems. Industrial air cooled chillers look like large air conditioning units, and are measured in terms of cooling capacity by tons, ranging from small, portable 1/4 ton units to over 1200 tons. Air cooled chillers vary in their condenser flow rates and evaporator flow rates, both of which are measured in gallons per minute, or gpm. Other specifications to look at include its power source, cooling capacity, fluid discharge temperature, compressor motor horsepower, and the range of ambient temperatures at which the chiller can operate. All told, air cooled chillers can provide simple and effective solutions for many process cooling needs.
