An industrial chiller is a machine that uses refrigeration to make a building or an area within a building cooler than the outside air. It accomplishes this by removing heat from a refrigerant. Industrial refrigeration is used for air conditioning, refrigeration, and process cooling of various types of industrial facilities, including food processing equipment, chemical plants, textile mills, oil refineries, breweries, and many others.
The basic working principle is to pass a liquid or gas to a heat exchanger, then to pass the liquid or gas through a series of tubes, which cool the liquid or gas as it passes through the tubes. The heat exchanger absorbs heat from the liquid or gas, which is then cooled as it passes through the tubes. The heat is removed from the liquid or gas as it passes through the tubes. A refrigeration cycle is a series of operations, in which heat is removed from a liquid or gas as it passes through a series of tubes. The refrigerant is cooled, and the liquid or gas is chilled as it passes through the tubes. The tube is also called the evaporator. The heat exchanger is also called the condenser.
The cooled liquid or gas is then compressed, and this compressed gas or liquid is returned to the heat exchanger, so the liquid can be cooled again. This cycle continues, and the liquid or gas is cooled continuously. The cooling capacity and the volume of a chiller depends on the number and size of tubes and the amount of cooling provided by the tubes. The cooling capacity of an industrial chiller also depends on the temperature of the liquid or gas being cooled, the density of the liquid or gas, the amount of liquid or gas passing through the tubes, and the flow rate of the liquid or gas through the tubes.
