Air-Cooled Chiller vs. Water Cooled Chiller

Air-Cooled Chiller vs. Water-Cooled Chiller, which to use?  Before you attempt to determine if you should use an air-cooled chiller or a water-cooled chiller you need to understand the reason for a chiller. What is a Chiller? As stated in an earlier post Air-Cooled Chillers – Answering the What Question, chillers are basically a refrigeration system that work by transferring the heat energy from fluids.   Chillers are used in industrial processes to remove the large […]

Using Glycol in Your Chiller

Glycol in Your Chiller

Using glycol in your chiller may prove to be beneficial because it reduces the freezing point of process fluid and ensures that it continues to flow at the operating temperature.  Using inhibited glycol in your system will prevent scale and corrosion from forming, algae and bacteria will not grow and metals such as copper, brass, steel cast iron and aluminum are protected.  However, there are some things to know when using glycol in your chiller […]
