Screw chillers are made of an evaporator, expansion valve, refrigerant, internal piping and controls, as are all chiller systems. For screw chillers, their compressors are the key point of differentiation, using two helical rotors that propel and compress the refrigerant gas. This type of chiller is powered by an electric motor, steam or gas turbines, and has nearly constant flow efficiency. Their capacity range is between 25 and 800 tons, and when used with liquid that has higher evaporating temperatures, they are efficient.
In screw chillers, the screw, or helical compressor, consists of two mating grooved helical rotors, the male lobes and the female gullies. In a stationary casing, they are housed and pass simultaneously. As they rotate, the refrigerant gas is compressed and converted into vapour by direct volume reduction between the two rotors. Such compressors are fitted with a slide vane which adjusts the compression path length. In one linear direction, the suction, compression and discharge all take place. An oil lubricant also serves as a sealant on the rotors. As the refrigerant passes through holes in the screw, the motor cooling occurs, and the screw acts as a liquid separator. It is necessary for screw chillers to be appropriately sized.
Q2. How does a Scroll Chiller Work?
A scroll compressor operates to compress fluids, in this case refrigerant, by using two interleaving scrolls, which means one scroll inside the other. Scroll compressors are known to operate quieter, smoother and more efficient than many other compressor types. Scroll chillers usually have several compressors in one or two refrigeration circuits in the case of water-cooled chillers. By staging the compressors, control is provided. They come with a range of parts, including: starter/control panels, drain valves, flow switches, electronic expansion valves, brazed plate evaporators, air-cooled or water-cooled condensers, sub-coolers, piping interconnectors and partial heat recovery (optionally).
They typically fit smaller systems, are commercially used for systems with a capacity of less than 30 TR, and can be built for outdoor use or indoor industrial use. Industrial-grade scroll chillers are suitable for use in large office buildings and other commercial and industrial facilities for air conditioning.
For applications such as low temperature processing, heat recovery, thermal storage and ice-making, they are also fine. Recently, engineers have changed scroll chillers to allow them to run with a single compressor at part load capacity. Before, without human manipulation outside of the powered computer, they were only able to operate at maximum capacity. Their energy quality is an advantage of scroll chillers. As several businesses aim to minimize the use of refrigerants with high ozone depletion potential, they are also becoming more environmentally conscious (ODP). Scroll chillers are both simple to install and easy to maintain, and a range of power, mechanical and sound configurations can be configured.

Q4. What is the working principle behind a Water Cooled Screw Chiller?
Water-cooled screw chillers are also chillers, using a screw compressor because of their primary components, so the term can be called water-cooled screw chillers. It is commonly used for the use of cold water or large shopping centres, hotels, warehouses, hospitals and other central air conditioning projects in the fields of plastic, electroplating, electronics, chemical, pharmaceutical, printing, food processing and other industrial refrigeration processes.
Through the condenser through the exhaust pipe. In the condenser with the cooling water for heat exchange, the heat is transferred to the cooling water away from the high temperature and high pressure coolant gas, while the coolant gas is condensed into a high pressure liquid. The thermostatic expansion valve is throttled by the high pressure liquid from the condenser and enters the evaporator. The low-pressure liquid refrigerant absorbs the heat of the warmed water in the evaporator and vaporizes the chilled water to cool off, becoming the desired low-temperature water. The compressor re-sucks the vaporized refrigerant gas and discharges it into the condenser so that it circulates again and again, thereby cooling the chilled water.

Q7. What are the various types of Chillers used for Industrial purposes?
For temperature control and cooling in several industries, chiller systems are critical. It can reduce cooling costs, decrease downtime, and increase operational performance by selecting the correct type of industrial chiller for process and space cooling. Here, as well as the pros and cons of each, we have discussed the various types of chillers for commercial and industrial applications. The aim is to assist you in making an informed purchase decision.
Air-cooled chillers, water-cooled chillers, and evaporative condensed chillers are the three primary types of industrial chillers in use today.
Water Cooled Chiller- Water from an external tower is used by the most common forms of water chillers to cool the gaseous refrigerant in the condenser. The refrigerant undergoes a phase change into a fluid after expelling its gas, and is recirculated into the system.
Air-Cooled Chiller- Until condensation and recirculation, air-cooled chillers use ambient air to reject heat from the refrigerant in the condenser. In addition, air fans connected to the unit help speed up the process of cooling.
Vapor compressor chillers use a refrigerant pumping compressor that removes unnecessary heat from a process. We have an evaporator, a condenser, and an expansion unit, and the device components are the same as in the absorption form. The absorbent medium in the device, however, is not present.
Vapor absorption chillers use a heat source to transport the refrigerant throughout the system for cooling, unlike vapour compressor systems. The machine components are the same as in vapour compressor style chillers, except there is an absorber, a pump, and a generator in place of the compressor.
Q8. Discuss some important features of Batching Plant Chillers.
Batching Plant Chillers, as per the process requirement, are customized for concrete mixing and cooling applications with 4oC and 1oC chilled water temperatures. The chillers are designed to work directly under the sun and shower at extremely dusty batching sites under severe weather conditions. In accordance with the available site conditions and services, the major components in the refrigeration circuits are selected or planned.

Q9. What are the types of Reciprocating Chillers?
The reciprocating cooler is at the heart of most medium-sized building core systems, reciprocating and rolling to a lesser degree. They consist of one or more compressor-motor reciprocating or scroll assemblies, air-cooled or condenser fans and water-cooled condensers, adiabatic liquid coolers, expansion units, interconnections for refrigerant piping, dosing for oil and cooling, control panels and wiring, auxiliary equipment and starters for compressor engines. Both of them are closed and semi-closed. The final assembly volume for manufacturing, plant assembly and testing, charging and shipping is around 20,000 tons. There are two types of reciprocating chillers:
Air-cooled Reciprocating chillers- Reciprocating air-cooled chillers are ideal for working even in harsh tropical weather conditions, since they are produced with high energy consumption characteristics. In compliance with international norms, they are planned and tested. They are simple to install and straightforward to run.
Water-cooled Reciprocating chillers- The water-cooled chillers are energy efficient and also environmentally friendly, and are designed to provide great performance in the most severe tropical conditions. They are evaluated according to the most influential global parameter. They are used for application in the specific sector where the fluid temperatures and other such variables are significant. As per the specifications, they can be personalized.
Q10. What is Ammonia Chiller preferred as a natural refrigerant?
Ammonia is the preferred natural refrigerant for packaged chillers, especially the larger models used at manufacturing sites. In the last century, ammonia has proved to be absolutely environmentally benign, and has become the chosen refrigerant in industrial process refrigeration and cold stores. Using HFC as a refrigerant, industrial chillers contribute substantially to emissions of greenhouse gases. This contribution relates to refrigerant emissions (leakage) as well as energy consumption for the operation of these chillers. Effective chillers with ammonia as a refrigerant can be used as a possible alternative to these HFC chillers in order to minimize all elements of this contribution. Based on several investigations and comparisons carried out by Unilever Engineering Services in close collaboration with several chiller suppliers, Unilever promotes the broader use of these ammonia chillers.
In general, ventilation for emergency and temperature control purposes, coolant alarms, emergency (remote) shutdown, and personal protective equipment should be ideally installed in housing or machinery rooms for ammonia chillers. In compliance with relevant local safety legislation, reputable manufacturers of ammonia chillers have cost-effective standard skid mounted packaged chillers in self-contained housings. However, further standardization of equipment, housing and regulations is required and could help to further reduce the cost of ammonia chillers.
Q11. What are the various applications of medical chillers?
Most generally, medical chillers are used to keep equipment running smoothly. They are often used during some procedures to lower the body temperatures of patients and to hold medical samples at appropriate temperatures. Chillers are used in the medical industry in different applications. In medical applications, proper chilling also means keeping life-saving equipment running smoothly; there is very little room for error. Therefore, it is highly critical that medical facilities take great caution in implementing solutions for cooling.
In medical applications, first chillers are used to extract heat from the body of a patient during such operations. Hair and tattoo removal, laser eye surgery and vein treatments are common procedures that involve removing heat from body parts or reducing the body temperature of a patient. Second, to cool down pieces of equipment that emit significant quantities of heat, medical chillers are used. Significant heat is produced by MRI machines, PET and CT scanners, lasers, x-ray machines, and linear accelerators. To function for an extended period of time, they need fast cooling. Third, to hold sensitive medical samples (i.e. blood samples) at ideal temperatures, chillers are widely used.
Q12. What are some of the benefits of using an Air Chiller?
Among the most widely used refrigeration devices for commercial and industrial facilities are air chillers. They function by absorbing heat from process water and then transmitting this heat, which ensures that they can be used in regions where there is no significant problem with heat discharge. They have a compressor, condenser, evaporator, and expansion valve, like water chillers, that operate to chill water and absorb heat. They use air to fuel condenser cooling, as opposed to water-cooled chillers. As excess heat is released into the ambient air, most if not all outdoor applications for chillers can use air-cooled chillers.

Q.13 which is the Best chiller for plastic industries?
The plastics industry is one of the world's largest and most influential industries, influencing almost every part of our lives, from food and medicine to aerospace and entertainment. The majority of plastic parts used regularly are molded by injection. An incredibly efficient way to mass similar manufacturing components with very little waste material is injection molding. An injection molding machine heats plastic Processing Chiller until they become liquid and then injected into a shaped mold where the plastic component cools. The cooling process can be very long; over 80 percent of the total processing period of plastic is devoted to cooling. An injection molding chiller will reduce the cooling time significantly and maintain the quality of your products.
Q14. What is an Oil Chiller. Discuss its features?
Oil chillers are specially constructed to cool oil directly through the heat exchange circuits of the refrigerant-to-oil. The chillers are designed to handle the oil entering the evaporator at temperatures higher than average, although the oil outlet temperature is also significantly higher than the typical cooling applications of the process. These chillers are designed to withstand high fluid temperatures in severe tropical weather conditions, which makes the construction of these chillers complex and very unique. To comply with peculiar cooling requirements as well as very high oil pressures, design and choice of equipment are essential. Oil chillers are manufactured in both water-cooled and air-cooled varieties. The Chillers are lightweight, the oil pumps are mounted on a skid and are manufactured and tested entirely in the factory.
