Cooling Tower VS. Chiller How Cooling Towers And Chillers Work Together

Cooling Tower vs. Chiller Are you wondering whether a cooling tower vs. industrial chiller is better for your application? We are here to help! Cooling towers and industrial chillers serve similar purposes – both systems can be used to cool industrial processes such as food processing units, metal plating and more. However, they differ in…

What Is Glycol Chiller And Why Glycol Is Used For Cooling?

What Is Glycol Chiller And Why Glycol Is Used For Cooling

Why Glycol Is Used for Cooling? The most commonly used coolant in a chiller is water or a mixture of water and another substance with appropriate heat conduction properties – such as a glycol compound. Glycol-based coolants consist of either ethylene glycol or propylene glycol. The main advantage of glycol coolants is anti-freeze properties.Pure water…

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…
