The 411 on Ammonia and Chillers

Ammonia, a natural refrigerant,  is a common choice for a refrigerant in very large cooling systems.  Here is the 411 on ammonia;  the benefits, the dangers and the necessary precautions.   Why Choose Ammonia? 1 –Ammonia is economical, effective, and efficient for large systems. Ammonia is produced by biological processes and the International Institute of Ammonia Refrigeration (IIAR) states that ammonia is 3 to 10% more thermodynamically efficient than competitive refrigerants.  This allows an ammonia-based […]

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 […]

Air-Cooled Chillers – Answering the What Question

Air-Cooled Chillers are basically a refrigeration system that work by transferring the heat energy from fluids.  Air-Cooled Chillers are used in a wide variety of settings and industries including medical, pharmaceutical, chemical, biotechnology, semiconductor, food, construction, plastic, and many others Air-Cooled Chillers condense refrigerant.  This is accomplished by relying on a condenser, cooled by the ambient air, and fans to move the air over a finned coil to condense the refrigerant.  The heat removed by […]
