Industrial chillers are classified as a refrigeration system that cools a process fluid or dehumidifies air in commercial and industrial facilities. A chiller will use either a vapor compression or absorption cycle to cool. Chilled water has a variety of applications from space cooling to process uses.
Components of an Industrial Chiller
The mechanical compression cycle has four basic components through which the refrigerant passes:
(1) the evaporator
(2) the compressor
(3) the condenser
(4) the expansion valve
The evaporator in the chiller will operate at a lower pressure and lower temperature than the condenser.
