What are Chillers?

Industrial chillers cool process fluids. Process fluids (typically water or a water/glycol mix) are used to cool machinery, equipment, food, etc. The process fluid absorbs heat from what is being cooled and then goes through the chiller where the heat is removed from the fluid and transferred to the ambient air .Even when water cooled, the chiller is often cooled by an induced or forced draft cooling tower. Machinery Centers has a wide variety of new and used air cooled and water-cooled chillers. Conair, Advantage, AEC, Carrier, Trane, Thermal Care, Temptek, Berg, Sterlcool. We carry new and used portable chillers. Machinery Center also has its own line of Brand-New Universal Chillers ranging from 5 ton to 40 Ton and can be ordered custom made as well.

As explained in Wikipedia, ” A chiller is a machine that removes heat from a liquid via a vapor-compression, adsorption refrigeration, or absorption refrigeration cycles. This liquid can then be circulated through a heat exchanger to cool equipment, or another process stream (such as air or process water). As a necessary by-product, refrigeration creates waste heat that must be exhausted to ambience, or for greater efficiency, recovered for heating purposes. Vapor compression chillers may use any of a number of different types of compressors. Most common today are the hermetic scroll, semi-hermetic screw, or centrifugal compressors. The condensing side of the chiller can be either air or water cooled. Even when liquid cooled, the chiller is often cooled by an induced or forced draft cooling tower. Absorption and adsorption chillers require a heat source to function.

Chilled water is used to cool and dehumidify air in mid- to large-size commercial, industrial, and institutional facilities. Water or liquid chillers can be liquid-cooled, air-cooled, or evaporatively cooled. Water or liquid-cooled systems can provide efficiency and environmental impact advantages over air-cooled systems.”
