As one can imagine chillers are extremely important in the industrial world where there are literally millions of machines that generate a lot of heat. If these machines are to last any time at all, they need to be cooled. This is where chillers come in. A chiller can be used to cool any machine or process that operates at 60Â° F or lower. A cooling tower can be used to cool any machine or process that operates at 85Â° F or higher. Some of the more common applications are listed below:
In the plastics industry, a chilling system cools the hot plastic that is injected, blown, extruded or stamped. A chilling system can also cool down the equipment that is used to create plastic products (hydraulics of the molding machine, gear box and barrel of the extruder) that saves on energy and on the wear and tear of the machine itself. Plastics, Injection Molding
In the printing industry, a chiller not only removes the heat generated by the friction of the printing rollers, but cools down the paper after it comes out of the ink drying ovens in the process. Printing
In the laser cutting industry, light projection industry, etc. a chilling system is used to cool down the lasers and power supplies. Laser
In the rubber industry to cool the multizone water temperature control units of the rubber extruder barrel, cool the rubber mill, calendars and bambury mixers. Rubber
In the beverage industry, a chiller removes the heat gained from the process during mixing, cooking, or after pasteurizing the product. Beverage
If you use high tech equipment for magnetic resonance imaging, scanning, blood cooling and laboratory testing, you'll need a cooling system to remove all the heat generated. MRI
With cooling expenses accounting for 30% to 50% of your total energy costs and rising fast, and the impending phaseout of chlorofluorocarbon (CFC) and hydrochlorofluorocarbon (HCFC) refrigerants, there is a rapidly growing need to replace large commercial air conditioning and refrigeration systems with a modular chilling system.
