How to choose an industrial chiller? Master 6 aspects, even beginners can do it
I often hear people in the industry complain about how to choose a chiller. I have compared two or three chiller solutions, and I feel that they are similar, but the price is different! Choosing a chiller is like finding an "object" for an enterprise's production equipment. It is not only necessary to "fit in love", but also "match the family". The right one is the best and can last for a long time.
If the choice is not good, either the cooling effect is not ideal, or energy is wasted, and other problems will arise. Therefore, it is really necessary for enterprise producers to understand the basic knowledge of the selection of chillers.
How to choose the best chiller scheme for enterprise production, the following Kadeley editor has sorted out 6 aspects for you, you may wish to take a look.
1. What is the temperature difference you need?
For example, how much material do you want to cool down to how many degrees for how long? It is an important reference for us to choose the right chiller type for you. We have a customer in Kaideli, who requires 40T material, from 48 degrees to 15 degrees in 1.5 to 2 hours. This demand is the key information for selection. For this reason, our professional technicians have equipped the customer with cooling capacity. It is a combined chiller solution of 960KW and a circular water tower, which not only achieves the ideal cooling effect, but also saves energy to a certain extent.
2. Consider the scheme with the least energy consumption
If you are using a chiller in a large-scale industry, you should pay attention to the energy consumption and choose a chiller solution that comprehensively utilizes electricity, heat and cold, such as a water-cooled screw heat recovery unit, which can recover the originally wasted condensation heat to achieve cooling, heating, etc. Dual functions, not only can achieve the best cooling effect, but also save energy and reduce emissions.
3. Does the chiller need to work together?
See if your enterprise needs multiple chillers for production, such as cold storage, which requires stable and continuous cooling, and when a chiller fails, other chillers are needed to replace the work. According to the production situation of your enterprise, explain it to the chiller manufacturer.
4. Whether there are environmental protection requirements
When the chiller works, it will also cause some environmental problems, such as whether the refrigerant is toxic, the noise of the operation is not too loud, and will it affect the surrounding environment of the enterprise. When selecting a chiller, the requirements in this regard must be made clear with the manufacturer.
5. Requirements for cooling water quality
The quality of the cooling water will affect the cleanliness of the pipeline, especially the evaporator. Poor cooling water quality will accelerate the scaling and corrosion of the pipeline, resulting in blockage and damage to the evaporator. Please inform the manufacturer when selecting models.
6. Other special requirements such as explosion-proof and vibration
The chiller often works in harsh conditions and often comes into contact with special substances such as flammable dust and explosive gas, so the company will also increase its explosion-proof and anti-vibration requirements. At this time, it is necessary to consult relevant technical personnel of the enterprise. The working environment of the chiller Whether it is a flammable and explosive occasion, consult with the chiller manufacturer, whether the chiller can be explosion-proof, what is the explosion-proof level, and the most suitable chiller solution for the comprehensive refrigeration needs.
