The difference between air-cooled and water-cooled chillers

The difference between air-cooled and water-cooled chillers

1. Air-cooled chiller:

The only difference between air-cooled chillers and water-cooling is that they use an air-cooled heat dissipation system. The air-cooled heat dissipation system is a combination of a motor, a fan and a transmission belt. Cold box type machine, etc.

Air-cooled chillers have the characteristics of low price, and because air-cooled chillers are often integrated, transportation, transfer, movement, and use in enterprises are more flexible and convenient.

2. Water-cooled chiller:

Water-cooled refrigeration is basically indirect refrigeration, and some use direct refrigeration. The common point with air-cooling is that it is not only for the refrigeration of the chiller, but also that whether it is air-cooled or water-cooled, it requires heat exchange through the condenser. It is impossible to pass the condenser.

The water-cooled heat dissipation system is more complicated than the air-cooled heat dissipation system. It requires not only cooling water pipes, but also chiller towers. Instead, the cooling water is used as the heat exchange medium, and the heat is transferred to the cooling water tower system through the cooling water, and then the cooling water tower is used for heat dissipation and cooling, and finally realizes the heat transfer, and the final heat transfer bearing space is still air.

However, compared to the air-cooled system of air-cooled refrigerators, water cooling has a much higher efficiency in transferring heat to the atmosphere than air cooling, and it has stronger stability and is more suitable for cooling capacity requirements and large cooling capacity requirements. And the freezer that runs uninterruptedly for a long time.

Finally, whether it is air-cooled or water-cooled, the heat transfer of the refrigerator is realized by cooling the heat exchanger (condenser), and finally the normal operation of the refrigerator system is maintained.
