What are the Working Principles of Scroll Chiller?

To better understand the Scroll Chiller, you need to know the principles of its working.

Let’s see how a Scroll Chiller works!

A Scroll Chiller is a water cooling machine. You can also use it to cool down the liquids and dehumidify the air around them.

It works upon the fundamental principles of evaporation and Condensation.

The Scroll Chiller system uses three interlinked systems.

  • Refrigeration cycle
  • Water circulation process
  • Electrical control system

According to these interlinked systems, the water or liquid circulates from the chiller process.

In this way, cooled liquid removes the heat from the process, and the warm fluid returns to the chiller.

The process water is a source by which heat transfers from the process to the chiller.

During this process, The Scroll Chiller uses a chemical material known as refrigerant. There are different kinds of refrigerants but they all work on the same principle of compression.

Refrigerant processes the liquid into gaseous form and then condenses into liquid form, through the expansion valve.

This process is known as a refrigerant cycle.

A refrigerant cycle includes the following components:

  1. Condenser

The purpose of the condenser is to release heat and condense the refrigerant.

  1. Cistern

The cistern works as a reservoir in the condenser. It is connected to the drainpipe of the chiller directly.

The liquid refrigerant continuously flows into the receiver to completely utilize the cooling place of the condenser.

  1. Dry Filter

You need to install the drying filter in the refrigeration system. It prevents moisture and dirt in the refrigeration cycle.

  1. Thermal Expansion Valve

A thermal expansion valve plays an important role to control the flow of refrigerant between the condenser and the evaporator.

  1. Evaporator

An evaporator is a device in a chiller. It is used to convert liquids into their gaseous state.

  1. Refrigerant

Refrigerant is a chemical compound used in a refrigeration cycle of Scroll Chiller. It works on the principle of compression.

The glycol refrigerants are the best refrigerant for the Scroll Chiller. You can also use a mixture of glycol refrigerant and water.

R12 and R22 are also best for Scroll Chiller.

Scroll Chiller has an electrical control system, also known as a microcomputer control system; it’s possible to adjust the resulting cooling capacity and other functions automatically to meet your requirements.

That is how a Scroll Chiller works.

The evaporator has to collect the unwanted heat from the cycle and pass it into refrigerant for recycling. It is placed between the expansion valve and the compressor.

  • Condenser

The condenser is used to remove the heat produced by the evaporator. It is located in front of the expansion valve and behind the compressor.

  • Compressor

It is an important component of the Scroll Chiller. The compressor in the Scroll Chiller is known as a Scroll Compressor.

Its function is to develop pressure variations to dissolve the refrigerant around.

It uses its two interleaving scrolls to pump, compress and then apply pressure to the liquid.

  • Expansion valve

The purpose of the expansion valve is to amplify the volume of the pressure dropped by the refrigerant. It works behind the condenser.

  • A water box

The water box detaches the entrance and exit point for the proper flow of the water.

  • Power panel

The purpose of the power panel is to manage the supply of electricity to the refrigeration system.

  • Control units

The control unit of a Scroll Chiller is responsible for observing the overall performance of the chiller.

This unit is capable of making changes when needed. And also produce alarms in emergencies and then shut down the complete system.

What are the Types of Scroll Chiller?

There are two main types of Scroll Chiller.

A Scroll Chiller can be a Water-cooled Scroll Chiller or an Air-cooled Scroll Chiller.

Before choosing the type of your Scroll Chiller, it is necessary to have a proper guideline about both.

Water-Cooled Scroll Chiller:

A water-cooled Scroll Chiller contains a water-cooled condenser, can be used for medium and large installations because they need enough water supplies.

They are more effective and reliable than air-cooled Scroll Chillers because water-cooled chillers can produce more uniform air conditioning.


A water-cooled Scroll Chiller works on the principle of re-circulating condensing of water from a cooling tower.

This condenser water condenses the chemical compound called refrigerant.

It contains a refrigerant that can enter the condenser water temperature as a result.

It works concerning wet bulb temperature so, it is clear that wet-bulb temperature is lower than dry bulb temperature.

In this way, water-cooled chillers can operate more efficiently.


  • It has auto and stepped capacity controllers.
  • It has higher reliability.
  • It uses separate refrigeration circuits for multiple compressors.
  • It has Built-in shell and tube evaporators.
  • Easy to maintain.
  • It has a high flow design and extra tube thickness.
  • It has Skid-mounted units like a fluid pump and storage tank.
  • It has stepped and auto control systems.

Air-Cooled Scroll Chiller:

An Air-cooled Scroll Chiller is a refrigeration system that works based on air handler systems.

The air-cooled Scroll Chiller is well known for its high energy efficiency.

It is designed in compliance with the international standards of the industry.

They are specially structured to work against tropical weather conditions.

Each compressor of the air-cooled Scroll Chiller is backed, by a separate refrigeration circuit.


An air-cooled Scroll Chiller absorbs the heat from the processed water. When the water in the air handler system has been used, it became warm.

This warm water then returned to the chiller. The evaporator of the chiller removes the heat from the warm water.


  • Easy to operate the automatic system.
  • Individual refrigeration circuits for each compressor.
  • Reliable and energy-efficient Scroll compressor.
  • Environmentally friendly.
  • Accurate temperature control by electronic expansion valves.
  • Better performance in freezing temperature.

If you see its categories according to cooling feature,

We will get two main categories air-cooled and water-cooled chiller.

But there is another research to show you their difference from some other aspects.

We are going to explain the difference between a Scroll Chiller and a Screw chiller.

These two types are categorized based on their compressors.

Compressors are essential components of heating/cooling systems. The overall performance of a system depends on the quality of the compressor.

They are also responsible for the aspects that how compressor-based systems efficient?

And how much energy does it consume?

A Scroll Chiller and a Screw chiller use a Scroll compressor and Screw compressor, respectively.

A Scroll compressor uses to scroll to give a continuous compression of refrigerant.

These two scrolls are known as an orbital scroll and a fixed scroll.

You can use a Scroll Chiller in a variety of applications such as buildings, offices, and industries, etc.

While a Screw compressor uses two rotors, to increase the refrigerant pressure, from a low level to a high level.

It processes the gas by trapping it into a casing.

You can use a Screw chiller for medium-load cooling applications such as double-story buildings, surgical centers, clinics, etc.

You will notice the only difference is between their working principles. Despite that difference, they both have evaporators, condensers, and expansion valves.

Now, you can easily differentiate the type of chiller you need for your application.

The size you need for your Scroll Chiller for your application is based on the total amount of heat your application is producing.

It also depends on the additional power to maintain the temperature under different loads.

Normally the manufacturer of the Scroll Chiller, you want to purchase will provide you with the complete heat removal information.

That information includes BTU/hr or watts to be removed with flow rate and temperatures for the equipment.

If you don’t know the method for calculating heat load, then continue reading you will know it soon!

  • First of all, calculate the temperature Differential (? T°F)? T°F = Incoming Water Temperature (°F) – Required Chill Water Temperature
  • Then, Calculate BTU/hr.BTU/hr. = Gallons per hr x 8.33 x ?T°F
  • Now Calculate tons of cooling capacityTons = BTU/hr. ÷ 12,000
  • Then, Oversize the chiller by 20%Ideal Size in Tons = Tons x 1.2

As a result, you will have the ideal size of your Scroll Chiller for your application.
