Options for Low-Temp Chillers

Options for Low-Temp Chillers

Low-temp chillers are among the most complex industrial process cooling systems. A chiller in this category must successfully navigate the many challenges that impact such performance and efficiency factors as fluid viscosity, pump selection, and oil flow parameters. It’s for this very reason that low-temp chillers come with many options that you can customize to a specific application – low-temp chillers are not one-size-fits-all! In this article, we’ll guide you through some of the low-temp chiller options to help you determine the best process chiller for your unique application.

The Main Components of a Process Chiller

Air-cooled and water-cooled industrial-grade chillers are critical for industrial processes, such as plastics, pharmaceuticals, commercial printing, and transportation manufacturing. Our clients also rely on them for brewing processes, dairy farm operations, and medical equipment processing. Both air-cooled and water-cooled chillers work by removing the heat from your processes so that your equipment stays cool, so they can keep running strong. In this post, we’re providing an insider look at the main components of a process chiller and the importance of each one.

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.
