What Is Hydroponic Chillers And Why It Is Used for Hydroponics?

What is hydroponic and why you need a chiller

What Is The Most Suitable Water Temperature For Growing Plants With Hydroponics? There is no particular water temperature that is ideal for hydroponic plant growth. Because different types of plants prefer different temperatures for their root zones, with warm-weather and tropical plants preferring higher temperatures than cool-season and temperate zone crops, you should try to…

How refrigeration compressors work 1.HERMETIC Refrigeration compressor or (fridge compressor) Hermetic compressors are mostly used in household refrigerators, both motor and compressor are enclosed in a steel housing also known as a hermetic container where no gas or liquid can enter or escape from the welding seals welded around the container. The hermetic compressor has a direct drive…

What Are the Most Used Refrigerant and How to Choose the Suitable One for Your Chiller?

most used refrigerant and how to choose

Most Used Refrigerant in Chillers – What refrigerants are used today? 1. Water Using water as a refrigerant is a low-cost solution that is completely non-toxic, easily available, and environmentally friendly. However, the choice of water-based refrigerants also has major disadvantages, including: The ambient temperature easily affects the efficiency of the cooling process Compared with…

What is USRT and How to Calculate the Right Cooling Capacity for Your Chiller?

What is USRT and how to calculatethe right cooling capacity for your chiller

What is (US)RT? The term refrigeration ton is commonly used, and mostly used, in North America. It’s a unit of measurement for the cooling capacity of a refrigeration machine. It has a few variants, and it’s sometimes called a ton of refrigeration or just RT for short. The term refrigeration ton is a little bit…

Chiller System Refrigerant Charging-Step by Step Guide

Refrigerant Charging-Step by Step Guide

Why do we need to vacuum a chiller system? All the refrigeration systems are designed to run without moisture and non-condensable gases; else it may not work as designed and is likely to fail prematurely. The presence of moisture in the air conditioning system may lead to the formation of acidic sludge. It may cause…

Refrigeration System Top 10 Failures Check List! Do You Know How to Solve Them All?

Refrigeration system top ten failure list! Do you know how to solve them all

1. Liquid reflux Cause In the refrigeration system using expansion valves, liquid reflux is closely related to the wrong selection of expansion valves. Oversized expansion valve, too small heat protection setting, incorrect installation method of temperature-sensor or broken insulation package, may cause reflux phenomenon. For small refrigeration systems using capillary tubes, too much liquid addition…

Do You Know Why Chiller(Refrigeration Equipment) Should Be Vacuumed

chiller vacuum

Many newcomers to the field know that refrigeration systems need to be vacuumed, but what is the reason why they must be vacuumed?   “I don’t know, that’s what I heard”. “Mixing air inside the cooling system is not good for the system, right?” “The chiller system will consume more power”. “With air inside, it…

Why We Need A Buffer Tank in Chiller System And How to Choose The Right Buffer Tank

How to Choose The Right Buffer Tank

The Role Of The Buffer Tank 1. If the buffer tank is not used, the compressor will start and stop frequently. Because of the limited amount of water in the circulation circuit, the water temperature will reach the target temperature we set in a very short period of time, at which point the compressor will…

Simple Guide: Refrigeration Evaporator Types and Main Features

refrigeration evaporator types s

Air-cooled evaporators are special heat exchangers for cooling the air mass in chillers or cold rooms. They differ in power, construction, and use of refrigerants. Even the capacity of the same model can vary depending on the boiling point of the refrigerant and the boiling delta (the difference between the boiling point and the temperature…
