Chillers have become indispensable in a vast number of industrial processes ranging from plastic processing to applications in pharmaceutical preparations and medical diagnostics. Different types of chiller systems exist including open-loop chillers, in-line chillers, and closed-loop chillers. In this article, we will be focusing on the closed-loop chiller system.
What Are Closed-Loop Chillers?
Closed-loop chillers are recirculating systems that employ the use of coolant fluid in a closed-loop setup to exchange heat from various industrial and commercial processes.
The coolant used in a closed-loop chiller can include:
- Water and water-based coolants (de-ionized

Hydroponics is a practice where plants are grown in a specially designed medium rather than regular soil. A key feature of this method of growing plants is the use of water regulated closely within pre-determined temperature levels.
Additionally, nutrients required to ensure that hydroponically grown plants thrive are supplied through a nutrient solution. Essential nutrients delivered to the growing plants include nitrogen, potassium, phosphorus, calcium, sulfur, magnesium, manganese, boron, copper, zinc, and iron.
How Does Water Temperature Affect Plant Growth?
Although there is a well-established relationship between water temperature and plant growth, the science of temperature regulation to achieve the best possible conditions for plant growth is not exact. The temperatures necessary

Many industrial processes generate significant quantities of heat which must be dissipated as quickly as possible to prevent damage to sensitive equipment as well as prevent defects in the quality of finished products.
Industrial chillers are heat exchange machines which exert a cooling effect that helps to rid a process or machine of unwanted heat. An industrial chiller can be a significant purchase, so it is vital to understand how to maintain it to keep it operational for as long as possible.
Depending on the chiller types you are considering, the key features of this list may

Cooling Towers vs. Chillers
Are you wondering whether a cooling tower vs. industrial chiller is better for your application? Cold Shot Chillers is here to help! Cooling towers and industrial chillers serve similar purposes – both systems can be used to cool industrial processes such as food processing units, metal plating and more. However, they differ in their mode of operation.
To find out which system is best for your cooling needs, you should understand how cooling towers and chillers work.
How a Cooling Tower Works
A cooling tower is a large heat exchanger unit which provides cooling water to remove heat from a coolant (most often water) that has been used to cool machinery, process fluids, or buildings. When the cooling water meets with air, a s
How Does a Chiller Work? - Industrial Chiller System Working Principles
If your facility uses process fluids or heavy-duty machinery that generates heat, you’ll need an industrial chiller system to cool your processes and i
Different Types of Chillers for Industrial and Commercial Use
Chiller systems are essential for temperature control and cooling in several industries. Choosing the right kind of industrial chiller for process and space cooling can lower cooling costs, minimize downtime, and improve operational efficiency.
This article will cover the different types of chillers for commercial and industrial applications, as well as the pros and cons of each. The aim is to help you make an informed buying decision.
Types of Industrial Chillers (Based on Condenser Type)
The three major types of industrial chillers in use today are air-cooled chillers, water-cooled chillers, and evaporative condensed chillers. Let’s take a closer look at all three:
The most common types of water chillers u
