Features of a Portable Chiller

Features of a Portable Chiller

What are the Main Components of Portable Chiller?

  1. Water System

Pump Assembly: Portable Chiller’s pump assembly circulates chilled liquid to the process loop.

The pump assembly is purely made of stainless steel to sustain water quality during working operations.

Reservoir: The vented reservoir is designed for the Portable Chiller application to maintain the flow rate.

The reservoir of your Portable Chiller provides a stable water temperature even in different load conditions.

  1. Refrigeration System

Compressor: Compressors take low pressure and low-temperature refrigerant gas and compress the refrigerant gas into high pressure and high temperature.

Air Cooled Condenser: The air-cooled condenser eliminates heat from the compressed refrigerant gas. The action makes the gas “condense” into a fluid state still under great pressure.

Airflow across the condenser is accomplished utilizing a motor-driven fan get-together.

Water Cooled Condenser: The water-cooled condenser eliminates heat from the compacted refrigerant gas. As the heat is taken out, the gas “condenses” into a fluid state, still under great tension.

Water controller valves are utilized on all models of the Portable Chiller to control the refrigerant head pressure by adjusting the condenser water flow.

Filter Drier: The filter drier of your Portable Chiller eliminates contaminants and humidity from the fluid refrigerant.

Refrigerant Sight Glass: The refrigerant sight glass shows refrigerant charge and humidity content.

Expansion Valve: The expansion valve of the Portable Chiller obstructs the flow of refrigerant fluid into the evaporator and produces a pressure drop in the refrigerant system that allows the fluid refrigerant to “boil off” inside the evaporator.

Evaporator: The evaporator is a brazed plate heat exchanger where the refrigerant liquid is permitted to evaporate (boil-off) to assimilate heat (BTU) from the process fluid.

As the heat is retained, the process fluid is chilled.

Capacity Control Solenoid: The Portable Chiller is outfitted with a capacity control option.

The capacity control includes matches the Portable Chiller’s ability to the cooling load to give temperature control and to prevent short cycling of the compressor.

High/Low-Pressure Switch: The high and low-pressure switches secure the refrigeration system from use working conditions.

Portable Chiller might be equipped with either customizable or non-movable ‘fixed’ high and low-pressure switches.

What are the Types of Portable Chiller?

Normally, Portable Chiller is available in capacity from 1/4 to 40 tons and single or numerous process cooling points.

Portable Chiller is intended to flow a liquid medium (normally water, or a water-glycol) through a process application for cooling to temperatures between 20° to 70°F.

There are two types of Portable Chiller. Air-Cooled Portable Chiller, Water Cooled Portable Chiller.

These are independent Portable Chillers utilizing a refrigerant system to chill water to a set point.

The chilled water is put away in a reservoir and provided to the process through a circulating pump.

A microchip regulator shows process temperature and monitors the Portable Chiller operations.

Since Portable Chiller uses refrigeration as the cooling implies, a technique to scatter the heat procured from the process is required.

Thus, it is available with air-cooled or water-cooled condensers.

Picking an air-cooled or water-cooled Portable Chiller depends upon your plant environment conditions and working load.

What is the Difference between Air Cooled and Water Cooled Portable Chiller?

Portable Chiller provides various industries with cool and reliable working conditions in time and places.

Portable Chiller keeps both your application and operator working at their most extreme efficiency and is incredible to have around if there is a cooling emergency.

There are two types of Portable Chiller as we discussed above.

To figure out which one is best for your business requirements, you need to know about both Portable Chiller.

Let’s explore it.

Air-Cooled Portable Chiller

Air-Cooled Portable Chiller works similarly to the traditional air cooling system.

The cold air coming from the Portable Chiller should be steered where it’s required, while the warm air being pulled in should be going out from the area.

The Air-Cooled Portable Chiller can deal with many industrial environment conditions and doesn’t need the utilization of a water supply.

When it’s time to cool power, an Air-Cooled Portable Chiller has a more wide range to choose from.

You can find an Air-Cooled Portable Chiller with a cooling power of up to 120,000 BTU/hr. While the highest cooling power found in a Water-Cooled Portable Chiller is near 60,000 BTU/hr.

All kinds of Portable Chillers are PLC controlled furnished with self-diagnostics and WIFI/LAN/LTE connectivity.

An application provides email/text notices for predictive maintenance, technical alarms, fault codes, and alarms to any kind of downtime.

The controls of a portable water-cooled chiller are coordinated to include all motor starters and need a single-point electrical connection.

Easy to Move Air Cooled Portable Chiller

Easy to Move Air Cooled Portable Chiller

Standard Flow of Portable Air-cooled chiller: A “standard flow” chiller system has a coordinated tank.

It’s utilized in a closed-loop cooling application where all the water pumped from the chiller returns to the central unit under the pressure produced by the pump.

Reverse Flow of Portable Air-cooled chiller: A “reverse flow” Portable Chiller is without a tank.

It’s a part of an open-loop cooling application where an external is utilized.

The water in this tank is gravity taken into the chiller pump, through the chiller and filter, and back to the processor to the tank.

Water Cooled Portable Chiller

As you may have experienced, a water-cooled Portable Chiller uses water to chill off the warm air that has been pulled in.

Likewise, as your Portable Chiller works hard to cool down your application, it heats up.

All of this heat is also removed by incoming water.

Water-Cooled Portable Chiller is slightly more energy-effective than air-cooled unit, commonly utilizing less amperage to work.

If your facility has a chiller system, the Water Cooled Portable Chiller is the most effective option to cool down your application.

It doesn’t need any ducting, making them an independent Portable Chiller. Because you don’t need to remove the heat of the room, installation is very simple.

You need just to plug in the electricity and connect it to the water supply, all done.

The controls of a portable air-cooled chiller are coordinated to include every motor starter and need a single point electrical connection.

Standard Flow of Portable Air-cooled chiller: A “standard flow” chiller system has a coordinated tank.

It’s utilized in a closed-loop cooling application where all the water pumped from the chiller returns to the central unit under the pressure produced by the pump.

Reverse Flow of Portable Air-cooled chiller: A “reverse flow” Portable Chiller is without a tank.

It’s a part of an open-loop cooling application where an external is utilized.

The water in this tank is gravity taken into the chiller pump, through the chiller and filter, and back to the processor to the tank.

Main Difference between Water and Air Cooled Portable Chiller

The primary difference between the air-cooled Portable Chiller and the water-cooled Portable Chiller is how they figure out how to remove the heat.

Both pull in warm air yet Air-Cooled Portable Chiller routes out while Water Cooled scatters the heat with approaching water.

Portable Water Chiller

How does Portable Chiller Work?

The Portable Chiller can work both in heating mode, through electric resistance, and in cooling mode.

Cooling thus can occur by activating the built-in Portable Chiller or of the water from the outer cooling system.

Every Portable Chiller can work in three different ways.

Heating Mode: During this stage, the electric resistance is turned on which raises and preserves the process temperature as per your production requirements and necessities.

Refrigeration Mode: At the point when it is important to cool down your application, the regulator can activate your Portable Chiller, which autonomously supplies chilled water which is then provided to the temperature control zones.

This is because automatic control valves, keep the temperatures set inside the chosen range with high accuracy.

Free-Cooling Mode: If during the cooling phase, the water temperature (coming from the outer cooling system) is lower than that needed by the process

The Portable Chiller compressor is automatically interfered with or turned off and cooling is performed straightforwardly by the external system by methods for the automatic free-cooling valve.

 What are the Applications of Portable Chiller?

The use of a Portable Chiller always relies upon your industry.

Since the Portable Chiller, you pick will rely upon the heat load, which is different according to your working load.

Applications need to eliminate the excessive heat from various processes, for example, plastics extrusion and the medical industry.

Anodizing: Electrochemically coating a surface with metal envelops both anodizing and metal plating.

Anodizing commonly occurs over aluminum, framing a surface covering oxides with the base metal.

In metal plating, the base metal is a cathode along with a negative charge. Nevertheless, in anodizing, the base is the anode along with a positive charge.

A Portable Chiller is to remove heat from the electrolyte fluid to keep it at a steady temperature. For top-notch anodizing, temperature control is basic.

Metal Plating: Metal plating covers the surface with metal particles from a donor over a conductive base material.

At the point when an electrical current goes through the bath both the cathode and anode are in, it moves metal particles from the anode to the cathode, making the surface coating.

As with anodizing, temperature control is vital to the result.

Here you will need a Portable Chiller that can deal with your metal plating temperature needs.

Injection Molding: A lot of plastic processes require cooling.

Utilizing a closed-loop system to prevent damage to the plastics, a Portable Chiller works for different operations in shaping plastic.

A Portable Chiller removes the abundance of heat produced during the different processes in manufacturing.

Portable Chiller cooling has increased working efficiency, making it an ideal process cooler choice for injection molding of plastic.

Blow Molding: Blow plastic containers and parts don’t utilize injection molding applications for their production.

They only use blow molding applications.

Directed cooling at an exact rate decides the success or failure of the process.

Cooling excessively fast keeps the plastic from reaching its final shape, yet if the process happens too slowly, the plastic will create deformations and heavy loss of your investment.

At this point having a suitable Portable Chiller for plastics to remove the heat from the material at the exact time during the formation of the plastic will guarantee the success of your production.

Some other applications need a Portable Chiller to remove heat and control temperature like Plastic Extrusion, Biodiesel, Medical scanner MRI, PET CAT.

What are the Advantages of Portable Chiller for your Application?

Setting up a precise and suitable Portable Chiller makes sure that your working operations are being carried out smoothly.

When we think about the alternative to the central chilling system, we frequently consider “Portable Chiller”.

Portable Chiller generally has little units mounted on casters that can move from application to application inside your facility.

Why Portable Chiller can be a solution for your applications? In a word: Flexibility.

Here are a few explanations

More Control at a Lower Cost: Portable Chiller offers the benefit of extraordinary fluid setpoints for each utilization point.

A Portable Chiller can dispose of the requirement for having both a central system and separate mold temperature control units that are frequently needed to change the mass liquid temperature given by the central system.

It can save capital expenses and working expenses for a particular hybrid system.

The selection of a Portable Chiller also allows the processor to choose the best temperature for each process.

Repeatable Temperature and Flow: Since your Portable Chiller is close-coupled to your working process, the fluid flow and temperature are steady and not reliant on different machines working in your industry.

It provides a predictable production rate and process quality.

Minimized Risk: If you face any kind of problem with your Portable Chiller, it impacts the production of just one machine.

Contrast this with a central chiller, even with various refrigeration circuits, a circuit issue can stop different machines from production.

Easy Installation and Fast Delivery: Portable Chiller set aside less effort for your supplier to deliver and can be installed quickly.

Various Portable Chiller is available from stock or with short lead times and requires just power and hoses to get into production.

On the other hand, a central chiller requires vast, costly piping networks and long lead times.

Low-Cost Configuration: The alternatives include independent, air-cooled, water-cooled, or units with open-air condensers.

Perhaps you need a bigger pump or a particular feature for your process?

Customizing your Portable Chiller for your application is generally simple and cost-effective.

First-Time Cost: This is normally a significant consideration for processors.

A couple of Portable Chillers with an absolute cooling limit of around 60 tons or less can frequently have initial expenses for equipment and installation that are far lower than a little chiller system.

Capacity to Adjust to Changing Cooling Loads: Technology has advanced to allow the present Portable Chiller to adjust rapidly and with energy proficiency, as cooling-capacity needs change.

Nowadays advanced scroll compressors available can operate with energy-saving at 20% to 100% cooling loads.

In the end, while thinking about a Portable Chiller, you should do what is best for your industry.

How to choose the Right Portable Chiller for your Application?

While choosing the best Portable Chiller, you should consider your cooling needs and what stresses you put the unit under.

For Portable Chiller selection here are some important points which will help you out in choosing the right one for your application.

  • Coolant temperature
  • Heat load
  • Coolant flow
  • Condenser heat dispersal

Let’s go through each of the above points more closely.

Coolant Temperature: The coolant temperature quantifies the coldest the chilling fluid reaches in the Portable Chiller.

When it reaches the process, the cooling liquid absorbs heat from the encompassing air and the process, rising its heat.

The temperature of the cooling fluid will help to decide how much heat it can retain.

Heat Load: Heat load refers to the quantity of heat produced by your process.

The higher the heat load, the more impressive the Portable Chiller should be to remove the excess heat.

The heat load is estimated in British Thermal Units (BTUs) per hour.

Figure out the heat load by multiplying the coolant flow in gallons per minute, the particular gravity, the temperature change, and 499.8 to change pounds over to gallons.

Heat Load (BTUs) = Coolant Flow (gallons each minute) x cooling fluid obvious gravity x change in temperature x 499.8

To determine the tonnage needed to deal with your heat production, divide the heat load by 12,000.

Cooling Load (T) = Heat Load ÷ 12,000

Pressure and Coolant Flow: The rate of coolant flow and pressure influence a fluid’s capacity to remove heat.

The coolant flow rate utilizes the heat load divided by the result of the coolant’s particular gravity and the temperature adjustment.

Coolant Flow = Heat Load ÷ (cooling fluid gravity x change in temperature)

The size of the pipes the coolant moves through will decide the pressure.

A well-made Portable Chiller will allow proper pressure to secure your Portable Chiller from any kind of damage.

Condenser Heat Dissipation: How the condenser removes heat has an effect.

You have the choices for both air-cooled Portable Chiller and water-cooled Portable Chiller.

If you intend to utilize your portable outside in freezing temperatures, an air-cooled portable might be better.

In any case, if you need higher productivity, a water-cooled Portable Chiller in controlled environments might be your better choice.

How to Install Portable Chiller?

Electrical Connections

Check serial label voltage and amperage necessities and ensure your electrical service adjusts.

Bring appropriately estimated power leads and ground from a fused disconnect to the main power terminal in the Portable Chiller’s electrical walled-in area.

  • Electrical connections should consent to all relevant electrical codes.
  • The chiller should be grounded well.
  • Voltage should be inside 10% of the Portable Chiller’s nameplate rating.

Water Connections

  • Every external chilled water connection with the process should be of a suitable size.
  • The biggest possible openings and passes ought to be accommodated by the flow of chilled water through platens, molds, or different pieces of equipment.

Water Reservoir

  • Add a pre-blended solution for giving freeze protection to a temperature of 20°F/°C below the ordinary working temperature of your Portable Chiller.
  • Always use industrial ethylene glycol.
  • A corrosion inhibitor appropriate for the materials in the system must be added to the glycol/water solution.
  • The six-gallon (23 liters) supply isn’t proposed to withstand water pressure above 5 psi (34 kPa).
  • The fill opening and vent line should be vented to the air for appropriate working operation.

Overhead Process Considerations

In case if your application has chilled water or process piping over the reservoir fill and vent level, install a standpipe to a point 1’ over the highest point.

In your applications where the process or its piping is 15 feet or more over the reservoir, you should find a way to prevent the over-pressurization of the reservoir.
