What are Split System Chillers?

While most industrial process chillers come in packaged air-cooled and water-cooled systems, there is yet another type of unit to consider: split system chillers. With two distinct and separately installed sections, split system chillers feature an indoor evaporator and compressor and an outdoor air-cooled condenser. Available in single, dual, and tandem circuit configurations, split system chillers are a unique alternative for companies whose application environments cannot accommodate traditional packaged systems.

Read on to learn more about when to choose split system chillers, how they’re installed, and the various benefits they offer.

What Type of Maintenance Does a Chiller Need?

chiller maintenance

Industrial chillers are heat exchangers that remove process heat to keep brewing, dairy, food processing, medical, low-temp, and other industrial equipment running smoothly. While our high-quality engineered solutions are designed for optimal performance, adhering to a routine preventative chiller maintenance schedule is critical to your system’s longevity and efficiency. In this article, we’ll cover the basics of chiller maintenance, highlighting frequency recommendations, and providing additional hints for monitoring chiller performance.

How do Process Chillers work?

Process chillers for brewery, dairy, industrial, medical, and other applications help ensure your equipment stays cool during processing. How do they do that? In a nutshell, chillers work by delivering a continuous flow of refrigerant to the cold side of the evaporator at the desired temperature. A chiller then pumps the cooled  fluid through the process to remove heat from your equipment and funnel it back to the return side.
