The Difference Between Water Cooling and Air Cooling In a Chiller

The first thing to claim is that water-cooled chillers and air-cooled chillers have the same working principle. They also use recycled water to cool the objects. Water-cooled chillers are suitable for slightly larger equipment, and larger because they are water-cooled. Must be equipped with an external water tower for cooling,

Many people think that an air-cooled chiller mistakenly believes that it is like blowing a fan to cool the required equipment. Actually, it is not. Air-cooled and water-cooled models also use water circulation to achieve cooling effect. It is only With a fan, this eliminates the need for cooling towers. The advantage is that the installation is simpler and easier to maintain.

The air-cooled chiller adopts the air cooling method, which eliminates the cooling towers, cooling water pumps and piping systems that are indispensable for the cooling water system, avoiding fouling of condensers and water pipes due to poor water quality, and saving water resources. At present, cold water air conditioning equipment products, maintenance and repair of the most economical and simple models.

Air-cooled chillers have a one-time higher investment than water-cooled chillers, but their operating costs are lower than water-cooled chillers for the whole year. The cost of engine room construction is the lowest among air-conditioning cooling and heat source systems, and the cost of maintenance is approximately water-cooled. Or half the cost of the boiler, air-cooled chiller noise and volume than water-cooled, can only be installed outdoors. Most water-cooled units are installed in the basement. The common point of air cooling and water cooling is that the cooling effect is also stable.
