Hot Weather Chiller Operation

The efficiency of any industrial liquid chiller is reduced as summer weather causes ambient and cooling tower water temperatures to climb. Most industrial liquid chillers are rated to produce full capacity at ambient temperatures up to 95°F for air-cooled liquid chillers or 85°F cooling tower water for water-cooled liquid chillers.

As these design values are exceeded, the ability of the liquid chiller condenser to transfer process heat from the refrigerant (which has already taken the heat from the process water) is reduced causing higher operating pressures and reduced performance and even shortened component life.

Keep your industrial water chiller running efficiently with these tips
for Air-Cooled and Water-Cooled chillers.

Follow these basic guidelines for both your central process chillers and portable process chillers and your chillers will operate reliably and efficiently even as summer weather brings warmer temperatures.
