Chapter 2.  How does the process chiller work?

Now we all know process chillers are widely used in various industrial applications, but how does the process chiller work?

air cooled process chiller working principle
process chiller working principle

A process chiller may use an air or water condenser in its cooling process(they are an air-cooled type or water-cooled type depending on air or water)

As the subcooled liquid refrigerant powered by a compressor, passes from the condenser(air-cooled or water-cooled) to the evaporator(tank coil, plate heat exchanger, or shell and tube type), a thermostatic expansion valve causes the pressure and temperature to drop.

The refrigerant then picks up the heat from the fluid flowing through the evaporator, changing from a liquid to a vapor.

Then back to the compressor, this flows in a continuous cycle continually cooling the process.

water cooled process chiller working principle
process chiller working principle

This is the complete working principle of a process chiller.

Chapter 3: What’re the components of a process chiller?

If we want to know the components of a process chiller, we need to understand how many kinds of process chillers there are?

Normally TopChiller divides process chiller into 2 types: air-cooled process chiller and water-cooled process chiller.

Air-cooled process chiller and water-cooled process chiller, are made up of many different refrigeration parts depending upon your process chiller design and specific requirements.

But no matter air-cooled type or water-cooled type, each process chiller incorporates a compressor, condenser, evaporator, thermal expansion valve, water pumps, pipes, high-pressure refrigerant relief valves, and possible cooling towers(for water-cooled type), tanks, filters, and exhaust fans(for air-cooled type).

What is Process Chiller?

Process chiller

 Process chiller

A process chiller is a refrigeration unit that cools down processes or even an industrial application.

The chillers have got unique kinds of chemical compound refrigerant that provides cooling to the processes.

Usually, the chiller unit has circuit compartments where the heated water flows through.

It undergoes a continuous series of refrigeration/absorption cycles.

The resultant cooled water then expels heat from the entire associated process.

With that, the process chillers would maintain a consistent set point of thermal temperatures throughout the week.

Unlike other commercial chiller units, process chillers are the most adaptable for harsh working conditions and environments.

What are the Common Applications of Process Chillers?

The following are the typical applications of process chillers.

Plastic chiller; in the plastic industry, the chiller significantly decreases cycle rates while performing injection molding and blow molding while controlling temperatures.

Laser chiller; in industrial applications, the vast demand for heat expulsion, especially with laser cutting machines, get sorted with cooling.

Why do you need a Process Chiller for Your Application?

Process chiller system

 process chiller system

No machine can achieve a perfect efficiency rate; at least there has to be some compensation.

Most often, the machines and specifically the industrial machines, release vast amounts of heat when running.

That level of heat is detrimental to the machine’s performance in several ways.

Firstly, the excessive heat would overheat the machine system.

Thereby leading to system shutdown, malfunction, production lapse, or correctly pre-mature equipment failures.

Most remarkably, it may lead to a reduced equipment service life span.

Nevertheless, the good news is that a chiller system comes in handy to help in such circumstances.

Primarily, a process chiller provides sufficient cooling to the machine plus numerous other advantages.

I. The process chiller provides your machines with enough and constant cooling temperature together with pressure.

II. It removes varying temperatures and pressure, thereby simplifying the process optimization and development.

III. It ultimately guarantees the highest product quality.

IV. The chiller re-circulates cooling water, unlike a rather wasteful single pass through the system. Consequently, recirculation hugely conserves water while reducing expenditure, which is can be too expensive.

Which are the Available Types of Process Chillers?

We can widely classify the process chillers into two broad classes, ie. Central chillers and compact chillers.

Chiller system

Chiller system

Central chillers are highly efficient at cooling several processes within a factory floor simultaneously.

The central chillers are robust.

They accommodate cooling loads from as low as 15 tons to over 300 tons.

Besides, they offer cooling temperatures approximately ranging from – 20⁰F to 65⁰F.

Lastly, due to their versatility, the central chillers are applicable in a wide range of applications from chemical processing, metal finishing to grinding.

Elsewhere, the process chillers are user-friendly and straightforward to operate.

Most of them are automatic and thus do not require sophisticated manipulation.

The material for constructing the machines also makes the chiller durable and able to withstand harsh conditions.

Compact chillers; the compact chillers are ready to use small level application type chiller.

Usually, they are efficient for use in applications that require small cooling loads.

Such small-scale cooling processes are in typical pharmaceutical, plastic, and chemical processing.

Subsequently, they are available in limited cooling loads, ranging from 1 ton to about 40 tons.

And interestingly, the compact process chillers are your perfect choice if you operate on space constraints.

These chillers will only consume little physical space; no wonder most of them are typically portable.

Most importantly, irrespective of their sizes, they still maximally operate efficiently to cool your applications.

Next, we can further classify the process chillers into other minor though critical groups.

Such may include the following;

Water-cooled process chiller; this is a refrigeration unit that cools process fluids and may also dehumidify the air.

They are applicable in both commercial and industrial setups to provide cooling processes.

A unique attribute of the water-cooled chiller is the use of water-cooled compressors to offer to cool.

To better enhance their efficiency, these chiller types have a fixed cooling tower, which further provides additional cooling.

Water-cooled chillers usually operate highly efficiently and are capable of handling huge demands of tons of cooling.

However, the chillers are better suited for an indoor operation setting since they do not heavily rely on ambient air ventilation.

Air-cooled process chillers; this chiller type has air-cooled type compressors that heavily rely upon ambient air to cool the refrigerant.

Hence providing the much-needed chilled temperature.

Therefore, with the propellor fans’ utilization, the air-cooled chillers would provide consistent temperatures for cooling your processes.

Since they rely on ambient air circulation, these chillers are best suited for outdoor installation.

Centrifugal chillers; the centrifugal chillers are a unique category of machines that utilize centrifugal-type compressors.

They are hugely versatile and powerful machines capable of harnessing huge cooling loads up to thousands of tons.

Therefore, they apply both media to large-scale cooling processes.

Oil-chiller: machine this chiller provides adequate cooling to the hydraulic oil, lubricating oil, and machine tools’ cooling oil.

The chiller cools the system down by re-circulating oil, thereby averting any possible chances of temperature increase.

Glycol chiller; the glycol chiller effectively dissipates heat from your production process.

The chiller uses a glycol-type coolant explicitly.

The major pro with the glycol coolant is its low freezing point, making the chiller suitable for extremely low climatic regions or weather.

Also, the glycol mixture has an improved rate of anti-corrosion properties hence appropriate for application in harsh working conditions.

Screw chiller; screw chiller is a particular type of chiller with a screw-type compressor to pump the refrigerant throughout its system.

They are most prevalent because they are easy to install, economical, and produce little to no sounds.

Better still, they are suitable for high-rise buildings.

Besides, they are appropriate for large cooling loads with a continuous run time of 24 hours a day throughout the week.

Scroll chiller; another process chiller type that utilizes hermetic scroll compressors.

They are adaptable for use in both industrial and non-industrial applications.

Also, they are, however, reliable for small cooling loads.

They are also small in size while offering sporadic cooling run times of shy than 24 hours a day.

Portable chiller; this is a chiller type with a unique configuration of incorporating all the essential chiller components within a single footprint.

Such chiller parts include the refrigeration circuit, compressor, cooling tank, condensers, pump, and reservoir.

Together, with all that then the chiller becomes portable in terms of mobility.

What are the Key Components of Process Chillers?

 Parts of process chiller

 Parts of process chiller

Depending on the specific design and type of application, a process chiller may consist of numerous components.

That is critical to enable the individual machine sufficiently adaptable to its particular working conditions.

Nevertheless, the following are the major parts of a process chiller you will undoubtedly find in almost all machines.

  • Evaporator – The refrigerant passes through the evaporator to cool down the process application as its temperature rapidly rises.

The resultant refrigerant, having gained heat from the process, evaporates, changing into a gaseous state while inside the evaporator.

  • Compressor – the compressor is responsible for increasing the refrigerant pressure without reversing its state.

What happens precisely after the refrigerant exits the evaporator while at low pressure.

  • Condenser – The condenser’s purpose is to extract the refrigerant’s heat of compression gained from the compressor.

Again, the condenser could either be air-cooled or water-cooled.

Air-cooled condensers utilize surrounding air to cool the refrigerant, whereas the water-cooled types use a cooling tower with water for cooling refrigerant via evaporation.

  • Expansion valves – a metering gadget for controlling the rate of flow of the


  • Controls; most chillers have intelligent microprocessor controls together with safety and operating controls.
  • Cooling towers – it stores water for use in cooling the refrigerant by evaporation means.
  • Pumps
  • Piping and tubes
  • Refrigerant relief valves
  • Filters
  • Fans
  • tanks.

What are the Salient Features of a Prime Quality Process Chiller?

Below are some of the typical characteristics of a highly efficient process chiller.

Highly efficient compressor; the chillers should have a wholly installed energy-efficient compressor.

Such type will significantly save your energy bills and increase reliability.

These compressors may include the hermetic type, suction gas-cooled types, or compressor built with a crankcase heater.

Multi-compressor option; chillers with several compressors have some essential pros: reliability and capacity modulation.

The multiple compressors enable the machine to have an inbuilt redundancy.

Besides, it makes it easier for the device to easily switch operations depending on the immediate prevailing number of required chillers.

All that makes the chillers achieve a super level of efficiency.

Intelligent microprocessor controller; the process chillers have a unique smart microprocessor controller with an on and off switch that you can use to run the system from a distance smoothly.

Besides, the controller incorporates a remote control alarm monitoring switch.

Generally, the microprocessor controller makes it easier to control the machine remotely.

Ease of installation; the machine would come when pre-tested at the factory, fully wired, refrigerant charged, ready chilled water tanks and pipes.

Therefore, you should only need to add chilled water plus make electrical connections before preparing for use.

Load balancing structure; a significant challenge with the process applications is a fluctuating heat load.

The implementation of a load balancing system thus solves the problem.

It ensures a steady supply of temperature by maintaining water at both low and high loads.

Specifically, the load balancing valve caters to intense loads.

Highly efficient heat transfer; the chiller system has unique optimizations to enhance heat transfer while preventing corrosion.

Those elements include aluminum fins, anti-corrosive coated fins, among others.

Low noise propagating design; the condenser fan design takes care of peaceful and efficient working, making the chiller noise-free and silent.

How does a Process Chiller Operate?

The operation of the process chiller is dependent upon the physical characteristics of its corresponding coolant/ refrigerant.

As a result, the chillers may have two basic working principles; heat absorption or vapor compression.

Heat absorption; The chillers that utilize the heat absorption principle are energy-efficient machines.

They work by pumping the coolant via a heated process in a cooling unit cycle.

The commonly used refrigerant in the chillers includes lithium bromide.

Vapor compression; a  vapor compression refrigeration unit comprises a compressor unit.

The compressor achieves the cooling effect by changing the state of a heated coolant vapor to its corresponding liquid form.

Most often, vapor compression chillers come pre-installed with air/ water-cooled condensers.

Now below is the process by which the chiller operates;

Step one; evaporator; the process begins right here where the refrigerant settles in as it immediately starts getting heated while cooling the process medium.

Continuous heating in the evaporator changes the state of the refrigerant to a low-pressure gaseous state.

Next, the refrigerant moves into the compressor.

Step two – compressor; the chiller compressor physically presses the now gaseous refrigerant to increase its pressure while conserving its physical state.

The result is a high-temperature pressurized gas that would need to release the heat.

Step three condenser; depending on the chiller type, the compressor may either be water-cooled or air-cooled.

In the condenser, the refrigerant releases the heat of compression it acquired from the compressor.

The resultant refrigerator is then a low temperature and low-pressure liquid.

Step four; expansion valve; lastly, the liquid refrigerant moves to the expansion valve then into the evaporator, and the cycle begins again.

P.S chiller systems are basically of two types, ie.

An open-loop system is suitable for large cooling requirements and a closed-loop system for smaller applications.

An open-loop system is extensively open, exposing the water to environmental elements, specifically at the storage tanks or cooling towers.

The danger of that system is the possible contamination of the water.

Elsewhere, a closed-loop system is entirely sealed so that the liquid and water flow through pipes and tubes with no chance of contamination from the surrounding.

Where Should You Install a Process Chiller?

Your process chiller’s precise location is relative; it entirely depends on numerous factors for consideration, including the machine’s size.

Yet, it also depends on your application.

At times, you may opt for setting up your chiller just close to or beside your application in cases whereby your application covers a small area.

If not so, then the chiller could be in a different secure room from your application when you need minimum disturbance due to emitted noise.

Elsewhere, you may opt to keep your chiller outside, mainly if you operate an air-cooled condenser.

How Do You Maintain a Process Chiller?

Maintaining a chiller involves a wide scope of techniques and measures.

Whereas a chiller failure can be unpredictable, you can implement some necessary procedures to avert most failures by conducting a holistic maintenance plan.

Below are a few quick tips for maintaining your process chiller:

  • Quarterly inspect the chiller holistically.
  • Check for any refrigerant leaks routinely and fix the faulty ones.
  • Check if all motor voltages and amps are correct.
  • Check whether all the electric starters, motors, relays, and contactors are operating appropriately.
  • Inspect all hot gas and unloader operations.
  • Regularly test the water, oil, and refrigerant to ensure that they maintain an allowed continuous threshold.

Most importantly, you have to make, follow, and record a detailed maintenance checklist for all your chillers.

That should involve a daily, monthly, semi-annual, and annual maintenance checklist.

What are the Core Differences Between a Process Chiller and HVAC System?

Chillers and HVAC systems are conspicuously distinct and varied with their mode of operation and design.

Below are the vital differences between the two

· Water and Refrigeration Circuit

Process chillers have two distinct sets of circuits, i.e., the refrigeration circuit and water circuits, which operate independently.

That is quite significant, especially when the machine fails, leaving the device running half its capacity.

On the flip side, the HVAC system has a combined set of water and refrigeration circuits, which work dependently.

Applications; Process chillers provide direct cooling for several industrial and non-industrial processes.

Alternatively, typical HVAC systems control the underlying environmental temperature conditions without fundamentally providing direct cooling for processes.

Cyclical usage applications; in winter or cold weather, the HVAC system’s air conditioning element becomes redundant since air cooling would not be necessary.

However, the process chillers are dynamic and can transform into heating devices, thus critical under prevailing weather conditions.

Component incorporation; typically, most process chillers come with complete pumps, storage tanks, cooling towers, and controls.

On the contrary, the HVAC system comes as standalone equipment without any add-on components.

It, therefore, means that you will need to buy the other parts separately.

Which are the Common Types of Compressors Associated with the Process Chillers?

The following are the primary categories of process chillers components

  • Rotary Screw compressors
  • Scroll compressors
  • Reciprocating compressors
  • Centrifugal compressors
  • Frictionless centrifugal compressors

Are There Other Auxiliary Components of Process Chillers?

For an additional level of flexibility for your chiller, you should consider adding the following extras;

Dual point power system; incorporates a second set of power lines for supplying two refrigerant circuits.

Electrical options; such as switches, circuit breakers, overloads, phase voltage monitors, etc

Multi-language set keyboard and interface; for use with several languages such as Spanish, German, French, etc.

Vibration isolators such as neoprene pads, spring isolators, seismic isolators, etc

Noise reduction add-ons; isolator pads, compressor acoustic blankets, etc.

Control options; non-reversible heat pumps, EMS interface.

How do You Differentiate Between a Process Chiller and Air Conditioning Chiller?

Process chillers and air conditioning chillers are distinct when you consider the following key elements:

Application; process chiller typically extracts heat/ thermal energy from processes leaving them at the required chilled temperature.

However, an air conditioning chiller reduces the air temperature in a room circulating by withdrawing the warm air.

Whereas process chiller has a wide range of applications in industrial and non-industrial settings, air conditioning chiller restricts air conditioning.

Operating temperatures; process chillers can operate at varying temperatures with different fluids and varying flow rates.

Pumps and cooling circuits; the process chillers can work with multiple pumps and circuits optimally.

Besides, these components come when fully integrated and manufactured by the chiller manufacturer.

On the contrary, air conditioning chillers use a pressurized system while installing contractors who source and install pumps and reservoirs.

Energy efficiency; the configuration of the process chiller’s energy efficiency rating is according to Non-Standard part-load value (NPLV) standards.

However, that of the air conditioning chiller follows the Integrated Part Load Value (IPLV) standards.

How do You Customize Process Chillers?

You can either fully or partially customize your process chillers as you deem fit for your application.

Some of the easiest and standard parts to customize include the following:

 Explosion proof process chiller

Explosion-proof process chiller

Heat exchanger and tanks; The available customization options for the tank and heat exchanger include; Fluid level sight glass, Variable Frequency Drive (VFD), tank fittings, low-level tank indicator with alarm, etc.

Controls; customized control options include custom programming for control of the application, a central regulator for multiple chillers, remote/ onboard touchscreen options, text alerts/ email information via email, or text alerts whenever there is email.

Partial or complete redundancy; full capacity redundancy, auto-changeover redundant pumps, dual/ multi-circuit units, complete electrical isolation, etc.

How do Manufacturers Guarantee the Quality of Process Chillers?

To guarantee the quality and the authenticity of the machines, the manufacturers have to employ several yet critical techniques.

These procedures include proper/useful manufacturing and holistic tests.

Proper/ effective manufacturing; the quality of the machines begins right from the manufacturing point.

Acceptable standards of manufacturing directly relate to better quality standards of the device.

But then, you can only approve a good manufacturing practice by verifying the kinds of quality certifications achieved by the manufacturer.

A reliable manufacturer should, therefore, be authorized and certified by quality standard bodies.

Tests; a critical type of test is the Factory Acceptance Tests (FAT).

The manufacturers conduct this test to assess the functionality of the machine right after manufacture and before shipping.

Therefore, it helps the manufacturers review the already manufactured devices then make system adjustments if need be.

Steps to Optimize the Performance of Process Chillers?

I. Inspect your chiller at least quarterly and maintain a log.

II. Routinely inspect your chiller for any possible refrigerant leak.

III. Verify whether the compressor’s operating pressure is of appropriate working range.

IV. Monitor all gas and unloader activities.

V. Check and correct all motor voltages and amps.

VI. Inspect all electrical starters, relays, and contractors.

VII. Always utilize superheat and subcooling temperature readings to achieve the highest efficiency.

VIII. Obtain line readings from the discharge lines.

How Often Should you Conduct Process Chiller Maintenance?

It is pretty apparent by now that a chiller needs comprehensive maintenance to enable it to achieve its optimal performance and efficiency.

Whether you’re using a water chiller or air chiller, they all require maintenance.

Most importantly, you need always to keep records of all the maintenance you do.

Consequently, you can thus conduct five series of maintenance throughout the year.

The schedules include Daily routine maintenance, monthly routine maintenance, regular semi-annual maintenance, and annual routine maintenance.

Note; every schedule of maintenance has got sets of maintenance descriptions that you should implement.

Besides, to strictly adhere to your program, you can keep and follow your machine’s maintenance checklists.

What Indicators Negatively Influence the Process Chiller Efficiency?

Interestingly, most chiller users are not fully aware of how inefficiently they could be operating their machines.

Such standard ineffective procedures may result in: chiller consuming a high amount of energy, thus attracting special energy rates, poorly performing, and having a shortened life span.

Even though numerous factors decrease the chiller’s efficiency, below are the most common ones:

Unwanted operating procedures, apart from reducing the chiller efficiency.

Poor operational protocols may also significantly decrease the service life span of the machine.

Kindly note that you should refer to the chiller’s technical manual whenever you are doubtful about any operation.

Neglected/postponed/canceled or ignored maintenance; maintenance personnel has to ensure that they follow the letter’s maintenance protocol.

Failure to precisely follow the outlined plan would hamper the chiller’s efficiency.

Overlooking cooling towers; just like other integral components of the chiller, the cooling tower is equally essential.

Its operation directly impacts the general machine’s efficiency.

Therefore, efficiently maintaining and operating the cooling towers enable the chillers to work efficiently.

Oversizing; to avert accidentally oversizing the chiller, you may consider installing variable frequency drives on the operating chillers.

Snubbing substitute fuel chillers; directly replacing a chiller with an exact version of the replaceable one can be devastating.

The dynamics in technology directly translate into some other new and useful fuel sources for the machines.

These recent trends of energy sources include natural gas, steam, or gas for operating your chiller.

What is a Process Chiller Tonnage Requirement?

The chillers’ tonnage is precisely the amount of cooling load that the machine can efficiently process.

Find below the tonnage requirements:

  • Never use an undersized unit because you would not achieve your intended cooling level.
  • Do not oversize the chiller because it will similarly operate inefficiently.
  • Having a slightly higher tonnage chiller than the load is relatively better than an undersize or excessively oversize.

What is the Cost of a Process Chiller?

The prices of process chillers are far varying, like the available options.

However, the prices depend on the tonnage, chiller type, and application.

What is the Lifespan of a Process Chiller?

Process chiller system

Process chiller

The lifespan of the chiller hugely depends on how better you keep it.

But still, the chiller type and its construction material greatly influence the machine’s durability.

Nonetheless, screw process chillers are the most durable for about 20 years, while scroll compressor chillers last for about 8 -15 years.

Similarly, air-cooled chillers under optimum conditions may last for 20 years.

Finally, a fiberglass cooling tower may serve you for up to 35 years.

How do you Eliminate the Chances of Fouling and Scaling in the Process Chillers?

With the chiller’s consistent operation, the evaporator and condenser tubes continuously accumulate minerals and sludge in their compartments.

It is such consistent deposits of those materials together with dirt that causes scaling and fouling.

Scale accumulation is detrimental to the overall chiller unit performance and efficiency.

Firstly, they insulate the tubes while also promoting corrosion.

To avoid all that, you can perform these two main preventive measures:

Firstly, regularly check the water treatment and ensure that it is according to the required standards.

Secondly, clean and inspect the evaporator and condenser tubes.

Ensure that you annually review the evaporator and condenser tubes.

Also, pay attention to the pressure drop.

A sharp rise in pressure drop from inlet to outlet with about 3 – 4 PSI indicates a potential surge in fouling and scaling, thus requiring cleaning.

3-How does a Process Chiller work?

A Process Chiller may utilize an air or water condenser in its cooling process. As the refrigerator liquid passes from the condenser to the evaporator, a thermostatic developed valve makes the pressing factor and temperature fall.

The refrigerant in Process Chiller at that point gets the heat from the liquid coursing through the evaporator, transforming from a liquid to a vapor.

It flows in a constant process consistently cooling the process. A Process Chiller deals with the rule of vapor pressure or vapor ingestion.

Process Chiller gives a consistent progression of coolant to the cold side of a Process Chiller water system at an ideal temperature of about 50°F (10°C).

The coolant in Process Chiller is then taken out through the process, extricating heat out of one side (e.g., machinery, process equipment, etc.) as it flows back to the return side of the process water system.

A Process Chiller utilizes a vapor pressure mechanical refrigeration system that links with the process water system with the help of a gadget called an evaporator.

The refrigerant circles through an evaporator, compressor, condenser, and developed gadget of a Process Chiller.

A thermodynamic process happens in each of the above segments of a Process Chiller. The evaporator works as a heat exchanger with the end goal that heat caught by the procedure coolant flow moves to the refrigerant.

As the heat transfer happens, the refrigerant dissipates, transforming from a low-pressure liquid into vapor, while the temperature of the process coolant lessens.

The refrigerant at that point flows to a compressor, which plays out different functions.

To begin with, it removes refrigerant from the evaporator and guarantees that the pressing factor in the evaporator stays adequately low to assimilate heat at the right rate.

Second, it brings the pressing factor up inactive refrigerant vapor to guarantee that its temperature stays sufficiently high to deliver heat when it arrives at the condenser.

The refrigerant in Process Chiller then returns to a liquid state at the condenser.

The inactive heat surrendered as the refrigerant changes from vapor to liquid is diverted from the climate by a cooling medium (air or water).

4-Why do you need a Process Chiller for your Applications?

No mechanical process, machine, or engine is 100% effective, with heat being the most widely recognized result of those inefficiencies.

If the heat is not taken out, it will gather over the long haul causing reduced production times, equipment closures, and even untimely equipment dissatisfaction.
