Principle of Air Cooled Chillers
Introduction: Air-cooled chillers are widely used in various industries for cooling applications. In this article, we will discuss the basic principles of air-cooled chillers and how they work.
- Working Principle: Air-cooled chillers work on the principle of thermodynamics, where heat is transferred from one location to another. The chiller consists of four main components – compressor, condenser, expansion valve, and evaporator.
- Compressor: The compressor is responsible for compressing the refrigerant gas, which raises its temperature and pressure.
- Condenser: The high-pressure gas then enters the condenser, where it releases heat to the surrounding air and condenses into a liquid.
- Expansion Valve: The liquid refrigerant then passes through the expansion valve, which reduces its pressure and temperature.
- Evaporator: The refrigerant enters the evaporator, where it absorbs heat from the process or space to be cooled, and evaporates into a gas.
- Cooling Process: Air-cooled chillers use fans to blow ambient air over the condenser coils, which transfer the heat from the refrigerant to the surrounding air. The heated air is then discharged to the outside of the building, and the cooled refrigerant is sent back to the evaporator to repeat the cycle.
- Efficiency: The efficiency of air-cooled chillers depends on various factors such as ambient temperature, humidity, and airflow.
