A chiller, by its name, cools some kind of fluid, with the help of a compressor. The liquid to be cooled is usually pure water or a mixture of water and glycol, but in special cases it may be oil, or liquid from a food industry.
The most important elements of the compressor cooling circuit are: Compressor, Condenser, Expansion Valve and Evaporator. We use liquid chillers in cases where more cooling capacity is needed, or we want to supply a large number of consumers.
There are 2 types of chillers:
The air cooled chillers can operate on its own, without the use of any other air conditioning unit. They can be ideal for both commercial and industrial facilities. Due to the design of the chiller, since all the caloric, hydraulic and electrical components needed for cooling are housed in one unit, they are very simple and cost effective to install. Within the building, only the water circuit pipes need to be laid. Another great advantage of theair cooled chiller is that there is no noise output. The chiller is made of weather-resistant materials, making it ideal for outdoor installations. The electrical parts are dust and drip-proof and conform to the European standard (CE).
The split-system chiller alone is not capable of cooling, as a additional air conditioing unit (condenser, dry cooler, cooling tower, etc.) is required. It is an excellent solution for monumentally protected buildings where the protection of the building’s image is of utmost importance, or where the permissible noise level is low or the distance between the engine room and roof is problematic. Even if the roof is statically unsuitable for accommodating a compact chiller, the use of split system chillers is still a solution.
