[What Is A Chiller]


WHAT IS A CHILLER ?


Industrial chillers are used for controlled cooling of products, mechanisms and machinery in a variety of 


industries . A chiller 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 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.
