Air cooled chillers and water chillers are devices that provide cooling and dehumidification for industrial and commercial applications. They use water or air as the cooling medium and circulate it through a heat exchanger to transfer heat from the process or environment to the chiller. The right chiller can reduce energy consumption, improve product quality, and extend equipment life.

If you are looking for a reliable and efficient chiller for your business, you have come to the right place. We offer a wide range that can meet your specific needs and budget. Whether you need a small portable chiller, or a custom-designed chiller system, we have the solution for you. Our water chillers are made of high-quality components and feature advanced controls, safety features, and low noise levels. They are easy to install, operate, and maintain.

Industrial chillers are used in a wide range of industries to provide process cooling and remove heat from industrial equipment. Some of the most common industries that use industrial chillers include:

Mining
Mining: Temperature and humidity inside the mines increase, posing health and safety risks for the workers and equipment. Chillers can lower the temperature and humidity of the air by using water or air as the cooling medium. The chilled water or air is then circulated through pipes and ducts to the underground areas, where it cools down the ambient air and removes excess heat from the mining processes.
Motor cooling
Motor cooling: Chillers are used in various industries to provide process cooling and remove heat from industrial equipment. In the context of motor cooling, chillers play a crucial role in maintaining optimal working conditions and preventing thermal damage to motors. Chillers help remove heat generated by motors during operation, ensuring their efficient performance and longevity.
Breweries
Breweries: Industrial grade brewery chillers are designed for many brewing processes, including wort cooling, brite tank temperature control, fermentation, crash cooling, pre-packaging, and product storage. By choosing an industrial chiller over a comfort chiller, brewers benefit from a heavier duty performance, tighter temperature control, year-round performance, compressor modulation, and more accurate refrigeration technology.
Cannabis extraction
Cannabis extraction: Industrial chillers play an integral role in commercial cannabis extraction facilities that produce recreational cannabis products, such as edibles and tinctures. Smaller growers can also use an industrial-grade chiller for greenhouse hemp cultivation, both benefitting from the year-round performance, uptime, and tight temperature control that it provides.
Dairy milk processing
Dairy milk processing: Industrial chillers use heavy-duty process cooling to remove heat from dairy milk processing equipment during the pasteurization process, preserving the quality and safety of your yield and increasing shelf life. Dairy operators benefit from on-demand chilling, easy maintenance, excellent performance, tighter temperature control, and year-round performance when using an industrial-grade chiller.
Food processing
Food processing: Thanks to its high-performance process cooling technology, an industrial chiller removes the need for ice during food processing, helping to reduce the cost and hassle of continually replenishing ice to cool the equipment. Whether used for processing dairy products, meat, chocolate, baked goods, or cold tables, an industrial chiller often saves food processors money on ice, offers more precise temperature control, and operates more reliably.
Medical equipment
Medical equipment: Industrial chillers provide critical process cooling for precision imaging machines, laboratory reagents, pharmaceutical equipment, and medical cannabis and THC extraction. Precise temperature control, uptime, reliability, and energy efficiency are chief concerns in the medical industry.
Refrigeration
Refrigeration: Industrial chillers play a critical role in many refrigeration applications such as walk-in freezers, greenhouses, technology, construction, low-temperature cold storage chemicals and pharmaceuticals.
Plastic manufacturing
Plastic manufacturing: Chillers are often used in plastic industries such as injection and blow moulding to cool down the moulds after they have been heated up by the molten plastic.
Metalworking
Metalworking: Chillers are used in metalworking cutting oils to cool down the cutting tools during machining operations.
Chemical processing
Chemical processing: Chillers are used in chemical processing to cool down reactors that produce chemicals such as polymers.
Vacuum systems
Vacuum systems: Chillers are used in vacuum systems to cool down vacuum pumps that generate vacuum pressure.
Product Versions
The difference between air-cooled and water-cooled chillers is mainly in the way they remove heat from the refrigerant. Air-cooled chillers use fans to blow ambient air over the condenser coils, while water-cooled chillers use a cooling tower system that circulates water through the condenser coils.
Some of the advantages and disadvantages of each type of chiller are:
  • Air-cooled chillers are easier to install and maintain, as they do not require a water supply, cooling tower, or pumps. They also have lower water consumption and environmental impact. However, they are more expensive to purchase and operate, as they consume more electricity for the fans and have lower efficiency in hot climates.
  • Water-cooled chillers are cheaper to purchase and operate, as they have higher efficiency and lower electricity consumption. They also have a smaller footprint and less noise than air-cooled chillers. However, they require more installation space and maintenance, as they need a water supply, cooling tower, pumps, and chemical treatment. They also have higher water consumption and potential for water contamination.
The choice of chiller type depends on various factors, such as the cooling capacity, location, budget, and environmental conditions of the application. A knowledgeable equipment vendor can help you decide which chiller system best suits your needs.
