What is the difference between a water-cooled chiller and an air-cooled chiller?

Mar. 25, 2020

Since the reform and opening up, our economy and industry have developed vigorously, and China's refrigeration and air-conditioning industry has changed rapidly. After more than a decade of development, China has become the world's second-largest consumer market and production country for refrigeration equipment. At present, most chemical companies need to use chillers in the production process. The use of chillers can effectively guarantee the normal production of enterprises. Under the introduction of Water Cooled Scroll Chiller Manufacturers, we found that there are many types of chillers, such as water-cooled scroll industrial chiller, water-cooled screw chiller, air-cooled scroll chiller, air-cooled screw chiller Chillers, module air-cooled heat pumps, etc. Among them, what we want to know today is that the two commonly used models of many types of the chiller are water-cooled chiller and air-cooled chiller. Because industrial chiller is divided into the water-cooled industrial chiller and air-cooled industrial chiller.

1.Water-Cooled Chiller

The water-cooled chiller uses a shell and tube evaporator to exchange heat with water. The refrigerant system absorbs the heat load in the water, cools the water to produce cold water, and then brings the heat to the shell and tube condenser through the role of the compressor. The refrigerant exchanges heat with water so that the water absorbs the heat and then dissipates the heat outside the cooling tower through the water pipe (water cooling). Water-cooled chiller is divided into two categories, one is a water-cooled screw chiller, and the other is a Water-Cooled Scroll Industrial Refrigerator.

2. Air-Cooled Chiller

The air-cooled chiller uses the shell and tube evaporator to exchange heat with water. The refrigerant system absorbs the heat load in the water, cools the water to produce cold water, and then brings the heat to the finned condenser through the role of the compressor. It is then dissipated into the outside air by the cooling fan (wind cooling). There are three types of the air-cooled chiller, namely module air-cooled heat pump, air-cooled scroll refrigerator, and air-cooled screw chiller. The three types of chillers have different uses. Our website has detailed information to facilitate customers to better understand the different types of chiller. If you want to buy, you can go to our website to view information and product pictures.

3. The difference between the two:

The difference between the air-cooled chiller and water-cooled chiller is mainly the difference between condenser. The air-cooled chiller uses a fan for heat dissipation. Generally, a fin-type condenser is used. The fin is actually an aluminum fin. The externally installed aluminum fin is used for the part that needs heat exchange to achieve efficient heat dissipation, and then the hot air is extracted by a powerful fan. Unlike air-water-cooled type, the condenser of the water-cooled chiller mainly removes heat by circulating cooling water, so the condenser of the water-cooled chiller is also commonly called a water cannon.

The above is the difference between the water-cooled industrial chiller and air-cooled industrial chiller. I hope to help you. If you want to customize Custom Water Cooled Chiller or custom air-cooled chiller, you are welcome to come to us to buy it.
