A chiller system is an air conditioning system which cools indoor air and creates a more productive and comfortable environment. Presently, chillers are increasingly been used in manufacturing plants to provide a cooling process to the equipment in order to maximize the productivity. Larger facilities like hospitals, commercial buildings, theme parks, government facilities and universities have to deal with extremely high energy costs, but the chiller system can be used to lower this considerably.
The water cooled chiller system produces higher tonnage in low costs per ton in the effort of creating a greater efficiency in energy usage. These chillers work by circulating the chilled water into the air handlers as a way of transferring heat from the air to water. The water is then returned to the chiller’s evaporating side where heat is then passed from water to the refrigerant liquid. This refrigerant leaves the system’s evaporator in form of cold vapor, which enters the compressor for compression to hot vapor. After it has left the compressor, this vapor then enters the condensation side where it’s then circulated into the system for the last step in heat removal.
The chiller must be well maintained to ensure it is as efficient as possible. Chiller efficiency is regarded as the energy amount or electricity used for producing a cooling ‘ton’ by the system, expressed as kw/ ton. Water treatment, plant design, chiller age, maintenance practices, plant operations, cooling load and cooling water design can affect the operating efficiency of the chiller dramatically and can as well impact on the operating costs. Maintenance services performed on the chiller system are of three types and this includes the water chemistry, operational procedures and mechanical maintenance. Regular maintenance on the chiller system must be provided by qualified technicians.
