Industrial Chiller

Industrial chilleralso known as a chiller, chiller units, water chiller system, air chiller system, Industrial chiller, etc., is widely used in various industrial productions such as plastic processing, electronics manufacturing, electroplating, pharmaceuticals, chemicals, ultrasonic cooling, printing, etc. It can accurately control the temperature required by modern industrial mechanized production, greatly improving production efficiency and product quality.When applied in plastic processing machinery for mold cooling, industrial chillers can greatly improve the surface finish of plastic products, reduce surface marks and internal stress, prevent shrinkage and deformation of products, facilitate demoulding and accelerate product shaping, thus greatly improving the production efficiency of plastic molding machines.

 Xiecheng is a professional industrial chiller manufacturer, providing various types of chillers to meet different customer needs. So, what is the working principle of an industrial chiller? And what are the types of industrial chillers available?

1. The Working Principle of an Industrial Chiller.

The main components of an industrial chiller include.

Industrial chillers are composed of multiple components, including compressors, evaporators, condensers, electrical components, water pumps, pressure controllers, pressure gauges, temperature controllers, expansion valves, anti-freeze switches, hand valves, fans, water tanks, etc. These components work together to ensure the normal operation of industrial chillers.

The main components of an industrial chiller include.

The working principle of an industrial chiller is to inject a certain amount of water into the internal water tank of the machine, cool the water through the cooling system of the industrial chiller, and then use the water pump inside the machine to inject the low-temperature frozen water into the equipment that needs to be cooled. The frozen water takes away the heat inside the machine, and the high-temperature hot water flows back to the water tank to be cooled again, so as to achieve the purpose of cooling the equipment through the circulating exchange of cooling.

The differences between an industrial chiller and other refrigeration equipment include.

Compared to common refrigeration equipment such as household air conditioners and refrigerators, industrial chillers need to transfer the heat absorbed by the refrigerant to the air through water circulation to achieve cooling effect. Meanwhile, in the design and manufacturing of industrial chillers, more attention is paid to the stability and safety of the equipment to meet the requirements of high-intensity use.

2. Classification and Maintenance of Industrial Chillers.

Classification and application characteristics of industrial chillers.

Industrial chillers can be classified into different types according to their characteristics and application scenarios. Here are some common classifications:


Classification by cooling method:

Water cooled chiller: Uses water as a cooling medium and discharges heat through a cooling tower, suitable for situations that require a large amount of cooling water.

Air cooled chiller: Uses air as a cooling medium and discharges heat through a fan, suitable for situations with limited space or where it is inconvenient to set up a cooling tower.


Classification by compressor type:

Screw chiller: Uses a screw compressor and has advantages such as high efficiency, low noise, and reliability. It is suitable for large refrigeration systems and high-demand applications.

• Scroll chiller: Uses a scroll compressor and has characteristics such as high efficiency, stable operation, wide applicability, environmental protection and energy saving. It is suitable for cooling needs of industrial equipment and is a mainstream choice in the cooling field.

Maintenance and repair of industrial chillers.

Industrial chiller units require regular inspection and maintenance to ensure their normal operation and extend their service life. Here are some common maintenance measures:

• Regularly replace or clean air filters and condensers to ensure cooling efficiency.

• Check and clean the water tank and water pipes to prevent scale and corrosion.

• Regularly inspect compressors and motors to ensure normal operation and lubrication.

• Check wiring and electrical equipment to ensure electrical safety.

• Check control systems and sensors to ensure normal operation and accurate readings.

• Regularly replace cooling fluid and add anti-corrosion agents to prevent coolant contamination and corrosion.

• Conduct regular system cleaning and purging to ensure smooth system operation.

• Regularly check pressure gauges and thermometers to ensure accurate readings.

3. Application of Industrial Chillers in Plastic Processing.

The role of industrial chillers in plastic processing.

The main role of industrial chillers in plastic processing is to ensure the quality and stability of plastic products through three aspects: temperature reduction, temperature control, and quality assurance. Specifically, it can lower the temperature of the plastic material, control the temperature stability during processing, and ensure the quality of the plastic products, such as smooth surface, low deformation, and no cracking issues.

Practical application of industrial chillers in plastic processing.

Industrial chillers are widely used in plastic processing. For example, injection molding, blow molding, extrusion molding, rolling molding, and injection molding processes all require the use of industrial chillers to cool down. In various fields such as automobiles, household appliances, and daily necessities, industrial chillers are needed to ensure the quality and stability of plastic products.

4. Future Development Trends of Industrial Chillers.

Application of new technologies in industrial chillers.

With the continuous development of technology, various new technologies are emerging, and these new technologies will gradually be applied to the manufacturing of industrial chillers. These technologies include the use of more efficient compressors, more advanced refrigerants, and more precise control systems, which can improve the cooling efficiency and stability of industrial chillers.

Requirements for energy efficiency and environmental protection in industrial chillers.

With the increasing awareness of environmental protection, the development of industrial chillers in the future will face stricter requirements for energy conservation and environmental protection. To meet these requirements, measures such as using more energy-efficient refrigeration technology, reducing the amount of refrigerants used, and strengthening the recycling of wastewater and waste heat will become more important. These measures not only reduce the environmental impact of industrial chillers but also save energy costs.

Application of intelligent technology in industrial chillers.

Over time, the future of industrial chillers will become increasingly intelligent. This will include the use of technologies such as the Internet of Things, cloud computing, and artificial intelligence to achieve intelligent monitoring, fault warning, and remote operation, thereby improving the intelligence level and operating efficiency of the equipment.

In the process of plastic processing, a large amount of heat is generated, making industrial chillers indispensable equipment. Failure to cool in a timely manner can seriously affect the quality and production efficiency of plastic products. In the future, industrial chillers will become more efficient, energy-saving, and environmentally friendly, and will use more intelligent control systems to improve energy utilization and reduce energy consumption. As a professional manufacturer of industrial chillers, Xiecheng will keep pace with the times and provide customers with high-quality and efficient equipment. We believe that with the joint efforts of all parties, industrial chillers will continue to play an important role and continue to promote the progress of plastic processing.
