The two types of air cooled chillers are scroll compressor air cooled chillers and screw compressor air cooled chillers. Scroll compressors are used for the smaller air cooled chillers, and screw compressors are used for larger air cooled chillers and have a variable speed drive option for increased efficiency. With a wide range of air-cooled chiller scroll and screw types, capacities and sustainable refrigerant options, Carrier is a leader in the industry. Whether it be non-ozone depleting refrigerant, simple installation, superior efficiency and powerful controls, these chillers are ideal for both replacement and new construction projects.
This type of chiller system is generally used in applications where the additional heat it discharges is not a factor. In fact, it’s often practical to use the excess heat to warm a plant during the winter, thus providing additional cost savings. Like with water-cooled chillers, the process begins with the primary return bringing warm water to the chiller.
Unit was run and tested at KIG and sold with a money back guarantee. Acquired by KIG in March 2015 was this nice 14 ton York YCAL series Air Cooled Chiller. We refurbish/test/sell about 100 chillers annually from our Clinton MA facility, and this unit was run and tested here prior to shipment, and sold with a money back guarantee of functionality.
The chiller contains two 15 hp Copeland compressors, a process pump, and recirculation pump. This is the newest Aquasnap series from Carrier, with improvements making them more efficient, quieter, and green too. Unit is 230 volt, and has the DIGITAL SCROLL compressor option which allows for smart and efficient control of the compressor for varying load conditions – down to 10% of load . Unit was run and tested prior to shipping, and offered with money back guarantee of functionality. Arrived at KIG in November 2015 was this perfect condition 2010 Carrier 30 ton RAP Series Air Cooled Chiller. It has a brazed plate exchanger, and dual Copeland Compressors.
Understand the key components to each plant type and operations and maintenance needs. SIEMENS PLC program control system, human-computer interface with large LED touch screen panel for precise control and monitoring in multi-language, and self-diagnosis for easy operation and supervision. Next, we’ll talk about a couple of different chilled water system configurations.
Air-cooled chillers are more prevalent in small to medium sized facilities where space and water may be limited. The costs to install and maintain these chillers are lower than that of their water-cooled counterparts, but they typically have a shorter lifespan. These chillers are commonly used for restaurants, corporate and sporting events, and temporary structures.
