Industrial Water Chillers
Cold Shot Chillers® offers a variety of water-cooled chillers that suit a wide range of industries. Water-cooled chillers and water cooling chiller systems absorb heat from process water and transfer it to a separate water source such as a cooling tower, river, pond, etc. Industrial water-cooled liquid chillers are generally used for large capacity applications, where the heat generated by air-cooled chillers creates a problem.
Water-to-water chillers are also considered when a cooling tower is already in place, or where the customer requires optimum efficiency of power consumption. Water-cooled chillers require condenser water treatment to eliminate mineral buildup. Mineral deposits create poor heat transfer situations, that reduce the efficiency of the unit.
Stationary Water-Cooled Chiller Units
The term “stationary water chiller” refers to any chiller that does not include a pump or a tank. The main component is a stand-alone chiller unit that must be connected by piping to a pump and a separate reservoir to function.
See our stationary water-cooled chiller PDF for more specifications.
This system will typically have separate controls for the chiller and the pump or pumps, with an electrical connection for each component. The controls should ideally be wired together, to prevent the chiller from cooling until the circulating pump is operating. The standard Cold Shot Chillers® product offering for stationary chillers included sizes ranging from 2 tons to more than 250 tons.
Cold Shot Chillers® predictive maintenance Guardian™ app provides email/text notifications for predictive maintenance milestones, technical alarms, fault codes, and alerts to nearly eliminate downtime for all our water-cooled chillers.
Cold Shot Chillers® Water-Cooled Stationary Liquid Chillers provide chilled water for most any process. They are designed for either indoor or outdoor (roof or ground level) installations. Each unit includes hermetic scroll compressors, air-cooled condenser, a full refrigerant charge of R-410A, and a weather-resistant microprocessor control center, all mounted on a rugged, formed-steel base.
PLC controlled electronic controls with self-diagnostics and WIFI/LAN/LTE connectivity for Cold Shot Chillers® predictive maintenance Guardian™ app providing email/text notifications for predictive maintenance milestones, technical alarms, fault codes, and alerts to nearly eliminate downtime.
All industrial water chillers use suction-gas-cooled, hermetic, scroll compressors. The compressors incorporate a scroll design that is compliant in both the axial and radial direction. All rotating parts are statically and dynamically balanced. A large internal volume and oil reservoir provides greater liquid tolerance. Compressor crankcase heaters are also included for extra protection against liquid migration.
Brazed plate heat exchangers are UL (Underwriters Laboratories) listed. The cooler is equipped with a heater controlled by a separate thermostat for outdoor low ambient applications. The heater provides freeze protection for the cooler down to -20°F (-29°C) ambient. The cooler is covered with 3/4" (19mm) flexible, closed-cell, foam insulation (K=0.25) and 20 mesh strainers (0.5 and 1.5 mm).
