In the production work of various industries, the commonly used chillers are generally air-cooled chillers or water-cooled chillers. These two types of chillers are the most common on the market. However, many users are not very clear about the principles and advantages of these two types of chillers. Below, the editor of Guangxi Cooler Refrigeration Equippment manufacturer will first introduce to you the working principles and advantages of water-cooled chillers.
1-Working principle of water-cooled chiller unit
The water-cooled chiller uses a shell-and-tube evaporator to exchange heat between water and refrigerant. The refrigerant system absorbs the heat load in the water and cools the water to produce cold water. It then brings the heat to the shell-and-tube condenser through the action of the compressor. The refrigerant exchanges heat with water, causing the water to absorb heat and then take the heat out of the external cooling tower through the water pipes for dissipation (belonging to water cooling).
2-Advantages of water-cooled chiller
2-1 Compared with air-cooled chillers, water-cooled chillers are safer in operation and more conducive to maintenance and repair.
2-2 Compared with water-cooled units and air-cooled units with the same cooling capacity, the overall power consumption of water-cooled units (including the power consumption of cooling water pumps and cooling tower fans) is only 70% of the power consumption of air-cooled units, which is energy-saving. Save electricity.
2-3 The water tank type evaporator has a built-in automatic water replenishing device, which eliminates the need for an expanding water tank in engineering installation and facilitates installation and maintenance. It is suitable for special occasions such as large temperature differences and small flow rates.
2-4 Water-cooled chillers generally use high-quality compressors as the heart, with superior performance, built-in safety protection systems, low noise, safe, reliable and durable.
2-5 The water-cooled chiller uses advanced high-end shell-and-tube condensers and evaporators, which can efficiently exchange heat and dissipate heat quickly. It is also small in size, compact in structure, beautiful in appearance, and highly energy-saving.
2-6 The multi-function operation panel of the water-cooled chiller is equipped with an ammeter, control system fuse, compressor switch button, water pump switch button, electronic temperature controller, various safety protection fault lights, and unit start-up and operation indicator lights. It is simple to operate and easy to use.
Water-cooled chillers and air-cooled chillers each have their own application advantages. When choosing a chiller, buyers can comprehensively consider the type of chiller that suits them based on their own use environment, cooling capacity, price and cost
