You need to choose the fluid according to its properties and requirements of your application.

Almost all the laboratories are using a Lab Recirculating Chiller because it’s not easy for a lab holder to only rely on tap water cooling.

What is a Lab Recirculating Chiller?

The word “recirculating” in a Lab Recirculating Chiller means to provide constant coolant by pumping the fluid through your application to be cooled and then returned to the laboratory chiller.

A Lab Recirculating Chiller is specially manufactured for various applications to optimize the condensing capability and to minimize the waste of water.

It is an enclosed type of cooling system that provides very efficient performance by constantly cooling your application.

It is a compact recirculating cooling system that is used to eject electrical and mechanical heat from your application.

The commonly used Lab Recirculating Chillers can operate between the temperature ranges – 130 º Fahrenheit to 302 º Fahrenheit.

There are two main types of Lab Recirculating Chiller. One is an air-based Lab Recirculating Chiller and the other one is a water-based Lab Recirculating Chiller.

Water-based Lab Recirculating Chiller uses water as a heat transfer medium to recirculate the coolant through your application.

While an air-based Lab Recirculating Chiller uses air as a coolant provider.

A recirculating water chiller can be used in the researched projects of universities or laboratories. They are very quiet and can be easily installed.

What are the Working Principles of Lab Recirculating Chiller?

A Lab Recirculating Chiller is known as significant cooling equipment to cool down the sample product or laboratory instruments.

It works on the basic principle of vapor absorption and vapor compression.

A Lab Recirculating Chiller provides the constant flow of coolant to a water system at a specific temperature.

The coolant from the chilled water is then sent to your Application to remove heat from it.

When the heat is removed and water becomes very hot then this hot water recirculates’ from the whole system.

It uses a mechanical vapor compression cooling system that is connected to a process with a device called an evaporator.

Lab Recirculating Chiller uses a refrigerant that circulates throughout the system to provide coolant.

The following thermodynamics process occurs in a Lab Recirculating Chiller.

Refrigeration:

In the process of refrigeration, heat is transferred from the equipment to lower the temperature of the equipment.

The cooling process starts when the refrigerant evaporates and is pumped into the compressor for further process.

Evaporation: In the evaporation process heat from the system will boil the water or air and changes it into vapors and then this gas is sent to the compressor for further process.

Compression:

After the formation of vapors with the help of a compressor, the vapor is compressed to increase the temperature and pressure.

Condensation:

After the compressor, the vapor reaches a condenser that lowers the temperature once again and turns back vapor into the liquid state.

What are the Main Components of the Lab Recirculating Chiller?

Lab Recirculating Chiller is specifically designed and manufactured for laboratory applications and equipment. It consists of main components similar to the other chilling systems.

A Lab Recirculating Chiller consists of the following major components that are used to execute the whole chilling system for your application.

How to Select an Efficient Lab Recirculating Chiller for your Application?

A Lab Recirculating Chiller is a chilling system that recirculates the coolant to remove heat from your application.

To obtain efficient and maximum output from Lab Recirculating Chiller according to the needs of your application.

You must choose an efficient recirculating chilling system for your application.

When selecting a Lab Recirculating Chiller for your application keep the following points in your mind for proper selection.

  • Coolant Flow Rate
  • Heat Load Capacity
  • Temperature of Coolant
  • Condenser Heat Dissipation
  • Coolant Flow Rate:

The pressure and flow rate of a coolant highly relate to the ability of the system to dissipate heat from the system.

The following formula can be used to determine the coolant flow rate for your Recirculating Chilling System.

Coolant Flow rate = Heat load (BTU per Hour/W) + (Specific gravity of fluid * Change in Temperature (Degree Fahrenheit))

The flow rate of the coolant you want to choose for your Recirculating Chilling System can be measure by using a flow meter.

The selection of pipes is also a considerable factor for the proper flow of coolant.

  • Heat Load Capacity:

The heat load of your application refers to the amount of heat it produces.

If it generates higher heat then you need a more powerful and efficient Lab circulating chiller.

It can be measure in BTUs/hr by using the given formula;

BTU per hour = (Tx-Ty) * gpm * 60 min per hour * 8.33 lb/gal * Cp

Where,

Tx = Outlet temperature of Coolant in degree Fahrenheit of your application

Ty= Inlet temperature of Coolant in degree Fahrenheit of your application

Gpm = Gallons per minute of coolant that is passing through your application

Cp = Specific heat of cooling agent (Coolant).

  • The Temperature of Coolant:

This step will help you to calculate how much your Lab Recirculating Chiller can absorb.

It measures the lowest temperature of the coolant in the chiller. The coolant fluid absorbs the heat from the process to cool down your application.

  • Condenser Heat Dissipation:

You can choose the option for both water-cooled and air-cooled Lab Recirculating Chiller System to make a difference in how a condenser removes heat from your application.

An Air-cooled condenser uses air as a cooling agent. It ejects a lot of heat into your atmosphere by using fans. It eliminates the need for cooling towers.

While water-cooled Recirculating Chiller uses water as a coolant. It can absorb more heat. It uses cooling towers for this purpose.

You can choose according to the requirements of your applications to obtain the efficient and effective output.

How to Choose the Right Size of Lab Recirculating Chiller for your Application?

Choosing the right sized Lab Recirculating Chiller for your application is a plus point towards the economies of its usage.

The ideal size required depends on the total amount of heat produced by your application and extra power to regulate the temperature under different roads.

Generally, the manufacture of your application will give you heat removal instructions that BTU per hour or Watts are needed to be removed with the flow rate and inlet-outlet temperatures you want for your application.

You can calculate the heat load of your recirculating chiller system by using this formula:

BTU per hour = (Tx-Ty) * gpm * 60 min per hour * 8.33 lb/gal * Cp

Where,

Tx = Outlet temperature of Coolant in degree Fahrenheit of your application

Ty= Inlet temperature of Coolant in degree Fahrenheit of your application

Gpm = Gallons per minute of coolant that is passing through your application

Cp = Specific heat of cooling agent (Coolant)

For Example Cp of water is equal to 1.0

Now we need to measure the temperature with one or more thermometers. You can measure the value of GPM with the help of a flow meter.

Additional Instructions to be followed while calculating the above calculations:

  • In case the ambient temperature of your application is more than 67 degrees Fahrenheit, then your need to add one percent to the calculated value for each 0.9 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • In case you are operating your application app 50 Hertz, then add 20 percent to the resultant value of BTU per hour.
  • You need to add 10 percent to the calculated wattage if you are working at altitude and in case the line voltage is lower than the rated voltage.

Unit Conversions after calculations:

Watts = (Value of BTU per hour) / 3.413

Tons = (Value of BTU’s per hour) / 12000

How to Increase the Lifespan of Lab Recirculating Chiller for your Application?

You need to take care of your Lab Recirculating Chiller by performing some sort of preventive maintenance like dusting, greasing calibration, cleaning of filters to enhance the life span of your application.

In the same way, you must perform some sort of Preventive maintenance practice to enhance the life span of your Lab Recirculating Chiller as the average life of an air-cooled chiller is 15 to 20 years.

The Recirculation Water Chiller is normally closer to 20 to 30 years of average life span but this can be improved by taking care of your Lab Recirculating Chiller.

Following measures may be taken in this regard.

  1. Cleaning of Tubes and Pipes.

Cleaning of all tubes and pipes in Lab Recirculating Chiller must be inspected periodically and if some tube is found damaged it should be replaced with a new one.

In case of dirty tubes or pipes, your system has to work harder to keep your application cool so, the proper cleaning of pipes and tubes can increase the life span of your recirculating chiller.

Flow Rate Adjustments.

For the better performance of your Lab Recirculating Chiller, you need to perform this step.

The flow rate of chilled water can cause trouble to your Lab Recirculating Chiller.

The low flow rate can reduce the efficiency of your system. If the flow is too high, it can cause damage to your application.

Ideally, the flow rate of the Lab Recirculating Chiller should be kept between 3.5 to 12.5 feet per second.

  1. Monitor Refrigerant Level. 

Refrigerant needs to be kept at a specific level for your Lab Recirculating Chiller to perform properly.

Each unique system has manufacturer-required adjustments for efficient function.

If the level of the refrigerant drops below a certain amount, it can damage the condenser tube.

The levels should be checked daily if the level is decreased then check for leakage or other issues that can cause your system to lose refrigerant.

In this type of Recirculating Chiller System, you need to compare the set point Temperature continuously with the lab temperature.

And keep on adjusting the control of Temperature for each cycle, to adjust the temperature precisely.

What Size and Power Ratings of Lab Chillers are Available?

The size of a normal Lab Chiller is small, compactable, and easy to install, Lab Chiller installation does not require special expertise but normally, the technicians can install it with limited space.

Power rating 240 watts to 10000wats are available you can choose any of them as per your application requirements.

How much Clearance is required for Maintenance around the Lab Chiller?

The Clearance Maintenance purposes depend on different models and, it varies from 0.8meters to 1.5 meters. Follow the instructions given in the Manual for the model you are going to install.

For what Type of Lab you Use Lab Chillers? 

Because of its very precise and accurate temperature control, the Lab Chiller may be suggested to be used for the following lab applications.

  • Medical labs
  • Calibration labs
  • Computers lab
  • Biological labs

What is the Set Point Temperature in Lab Recirculating Chiller?

The term set point temperature is used in the Lab Recirculating system is used for the temperature which is required to be maintained in the lab and, it is settable and also called preset temperature.

What Are Characteristics of Air Cooled and Water Cooled Lab Recirculating Chiller?

The two main types of Lab Recirculating Chillers are as below.

  • Water-cooled.
  • Air-cooled.

Water Cooled Chiller

  • It is used for indoor activities where the ventilation is insufficient.
  • A water chiller is having better capacity than an air chiller. It is cheaper also.

Air Cooled Chiller

  • This type does not need a cooling tower.
  • The piping network is very simple.
  • In case of too much cooling simply clean the filters.
  • Air Cooled Lab Recirculating Chiller may be used in areas with a cool environment and where ice is frozen in winters.

What is Differential Temperature?

The difference between lab temperature and set point Temperature is called the differential temperature of your lab Recirculating system.

What Unit is used to mention the Capacity of the Lab Recirculating Chiller?

Generally, the chiller capacity of any chiller is mentioned in tons but sometimes it is also mentioned in watts. One refrigeration ton is equal to 12000 BTU Per hour.
