Chiller - an overview ScienceDirect Topics

A chiller is a machine that removes heat from a liquid via a vapor-compression or absorption refrigeration cycle. A vapor-compression chiller uses a refrigerant internally as its working fluid. Many refrigerant options are available; when selecting a chiller, the application, cooling temperature requirements, and refrigerant's cooling ...

Apr 02, 2009 What concerns me is the part load curve. I was doing some investigation and put the DOE2 default coefficients into an excel file (attached) for a water cooled, centrifugal hermetic chiller. Only changing the part load ratio, the kW/ton of the chiller decreases dramatically, which isn't correct. Logic tells me that decreasing the condenser water ...

Feb 23, 2021 The cooling capacity of a chiller, especially a packaged air-cooled chiller, is often described in terms of its nominal tonnage value, which is a rough approximation of the tonnage at “typical” conditions. However, nominal tonnage is really only useful as an order-of-magnitude metric for the chiller’s size.

For most cooling systems, the cooling load should be determined by this simplified form of the First Law: Q = (4.5 x SCFM x ∆h) where ∆h = change in enthalpy of entering leaving air BTU/Lbda. This equation accounts for the energy which may be used to cool or condense the water vapor in the air stream. This cooling load, termed the latent ...

Jan 14, 2015 The problem with part-load conditions is that most heating and cooling equipment operates at fixed capacity. If the cooling load is only 6000 BTU per hour and you have a 24,000 BTU/hour air condtioner, that AC isn’t going to run very long before it meets the thermostat setpoint. That imbalance isn’t ideal for comfort or dehumidification.
