When and why you need a commercial chiller system

If you have a larger space that requires cooling, standard air conditioning units may not be effective enough. In such circumstances, a chiller system is necessary to provide comfort and maintain a consistent temperature in the space. Chillers are also commonly used in industries where large machinery needs to be cooled or kept at a specific temperature e.g. in hospitals for equipment like MRI machines and data servers.

Businesses that require chiller systems include those which need to meet colder temperatures, such as the food production and medical industries. Power generation facilities rely on chillers to keep their equipment running smoothly. Metal plating businesses also use chillers to keep their processes cool and prevent overheating.

Chiller systems are critical in such scenarios as temperatures need to be carefully monitored to prevent damage to equipment or products. For example, in the food production industry, certain products must be kept at a specific temperature to prevent spoilage and contamination. Another example being plastic manufacturers in which temperature variations can impact the final product.

Overall, a chiller system is an essential investment for any business or organisation that requires consistent cooling or temperature control, especially in larger spaces.

Chiller FAQs

Your questions about repairs answered

For air cooled chillers a space of 1m around the entire chiller is needed to allow for ample air flow and heat dissipation. For water cooled chillers there is no set amount of space needed, although you will need enough space for engineers to access the chiller for maintenance and repairs to be conducted.

Chillers don’t need a constant water supply as they operate using a closed loop system, meaning they recycle the air and water that is used. Although, water cooled chillers will gradually lose water due to the evaporation rate from the cooling tower, meaning that the water levels will have to be topped up periodically but it will not require a constant water feed.

No, not all chillers need a cooling tower. Only water cooled chillers require a cooling tower. Despite the fact that this takes up more space and requires more equipment to maintain, water cooled chillers are more efficient than their air cooled counterparts because of the cooling tower.

Yes, all chillers have a refrigerant circuit and therefore need F-gas to operate due to the compression process.

A chiller’s temperature can be adjusted to a degree but they’re not variable in temperature as air con units are.  Chillers are normally used to provide a consistent and ongoing temperature.

Chillers can get extremely cold, especially with specially designed low temperature chillers. These chillers can reach tremendously icy temperatures, going as low as -30°c. They aren’t called chillers for nowt!
