  • You Can't Beat Custom Chillers

    Nothing is better than something custom made. It is something that is made just for you and no one else. It fits like a glove and is exactly how you want it. Custom made products can range from shoes to clothes to purses to cars to mixed tapes, even to industrial products such as lathes or chillers. Chillers come in many different shapes and in many different sizes. They can be small and portable as well as large and stationary. They can range from a couple of feet tall to...

  • 3 Types of Liquid Chillers

    Liquid chillers are specialized refrigeration systems that are formulated to cool liquids including beverages, food ingredients, chemicals, oil, water, brine, and alcohol. Most liquid chillers are designed for industrial applications, when storage and cooling is a necessary part of the manufacturing process. Even though most chillers are used in similar ways, there are a variety of designs that suit different industrial needs. There are three main types of chiller systems for liquids that industrial factories and manufacturing plants use, and each one is designed for a specific purpose. The three...

  • A Chill in the Air and a Chiller in the Building

    by Breana Cronk, IQS Editor With a stark chill in the autumn air and leaves changing all around, it is evident that winter will soon be here. The shifting seasons bring on many changes in the Northern Hemisphere. Faithful outdoorsmen make the transition from swimsuits to snowsuits, sandals are traded for skates and children turn from crafting castles out of sand to creating families out of snow. Even calls for ice cream slowly fade into the frosty air, replaced by teeth-chattering requests for hot cider and cocoa. As residential furnaces...

  • Tek-Temp Instruments Gives a Different Perspective on Temperature Control Systems

    Tek-Temp Instruments wrote an article that was published in the November 2009 issue of Process Heating Magazine that offered “A Different Perspective” on temperature control systems. The article discussed when to consider a liquid-to-liquid heat exchanger system and shared the overall features and options that are available to these systems. For example if your answer would be yes to the question “is the tap of building cooling water source compromising the cooling performance of your process equipment due to its lack of cleanliness?” You should be considering a liquid-to-liquid heat...

Industry Information

Liquid Chillers

Liquid chillers are refrigeration systems that chill liquids such as water, oil, brine, alcohol, coolants, chemicals and beverage or food ingredients for industrial applications. Their design and construction are very similar to air conditioners, and they range vastly in size. They may be fabricated as small, localized units for small applications or as large central chiller systems combining many heat exchangers and external cooling towers that span an entire facility.

Industrial liquid chillers are built for industrial cooling, where they cool products, mechanisms and factory machinery in processes such as plastic injection molding, blow molding, metalworking, welding, die casting, chemical and pharmaceutical processing, food and beverage processing, lab equipment and lasers. Others are built for gas cooling and air conditioning for commercial and industrial facilities. Types of liquid chillers include absorption chillers, air cooled chillers, water cooled chillers, evaporation cooled chillers, recirculating chillers, centrifugal chillers, and screw chillers.

Liquid chillers have four main stages: the evaporator, the vapor compressor, the condenser and the expansion valve. These stages are designed to re-circulate the refrigerant through gas and liquid stages. Initially, a cold refrigerant in gas form passes over heat exchanger tubes containing the hot liquid which needs to be chilled. The refrigerant absorbs the heat lost by the liquid, cause some of the liquid to evaporate. A gas compressor then compresses the vaporized refrigerant into a high pressure, high temperature gas. The gas then moves into the condenser coil over which ambient air blows. The air, moved by one or more fans, removes heat from the gas, which causes it to condense into a high pressure, moderate temperature liquid. The liquid then passes through an expansion valve where a large pressure drop occurs, so that some of the liquid evaporates into a very cold mist and the refrigerant becomes cold. Finally, the cold refrigerant returns to the heat exchanger, and the whole process begins again. Many types of toxic and non-toxic refrigerants may be used in chillers; toxic refrigerants include chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs), hydrochlorofluorocarbons (HCFCs) and halomethanes such as R-22; these substances have very low boiling points, enabling them to change their physical state from liquid to vapor easily. Non-toxic refrigerants include water, brine, liquefied propane gas and CO2.
