Choosing the best chiller for your application is not always as simple as picking a product from a catalog. When sizing a chiller it is important to know the environment it will be in. For example, if you need a 5 ton chiller you have to determine 5 tons at a certain ambient and a certain leaving water temperature. When you change either one of these parameters you change the capacity of a chiller. For instance a 5 ton chiller operating at 65°F leaving water temperature in an ambient of 90°F will become a 4 ton chiller if operating at 50°F leaving water temperature and 90°F ambient. The same holds true for higher ambient. The capacity will be reduced significantly when the ambient increases 10°F.

Do you have a need for liquid cooling? Do you have an old chiller that needs to be replaced? Are you unsure of your liquid cooling options? We are here to help!
Heat is a single common by-product of today‘s manufacturing machines that include the advanced automation technology required for both high speed operation and high precision. Components such as spindle motors, variable frequency drives, laser and x-ray sources all require cooling to operate properly and reliably – most often in the very adverse manufacturing environments.
