What is a Chiller?


The function of an air cooled chilling unit may seem obvious since it is designed to cool its contents. Though the air cooled chilling process may seem simple, there is a great deal of engineering know how that goes into producing the low temperatures of an air cooled chiller. The basic principles of the units rely on the transfer of heat or its removal from warm fluids such as water. 


The heat transfer process begins with an evaporator that has refrigerant in the tubes bundled around it. As fluid flows through the tubes, heat is absorbed from the contents of the tubes to form a Superheated Vapor. A compressor unit pulls the chilled vapors from the evaporator and sends it to the condenser that increases the temperature and pressure. In the tubes of the condenser, the refrigerant becomes a Sub Cooled Liquid, meaning that the heat has been rejected. 


The pressurized liquid moves through an expansion device and back to the evaporator where the pressure and temperature are reduced. The cycle is completed when the refrigerant flows back over the cooled water coils where more heat is absorbed. 


Air Cooled Chiller Variations 


Whenever the purchase of an air cooled chiller unit is proposed, there is always concern for environmental compliance and getting the right size. These two issues require a great deal of thought since purchasing too large a unit may be too costly and getting too small a unit may not meet your needs. Whether it is concern for the environment or getting the right size, Universal Chilling Systems is ready to help with technical advice as well as their assurance that what you will get will meet your specific needs. 


All manufacturers are concerned about the environmental impact of their products. This is especially true for Universal Chilling Systems. We work hard to be in compliance with EPA regulations and use R410A refrigerant, which is Ozone-Friendly and causes zero Ozone depletion. All of the products from Universal Chilling Systems are designed, engineered, and produced to be Eco-Friendly.

Size and mobility may be another issue since many people believe that a chiller unit has to be huge to do its job. Universal Chilling Systems is well aware of the needs of our customers and has a line of chilling equipment that can fit into any budget but still meet the necessary capacity.


To meet your cooling needs, Universal Chilling Systems has designed chilling and cooling units that begin at 5 tons and 25 gallons and go up to 40 tons and 128 gallons. These units have a cooling capacity rated at 12,000 BTUs per ton per hour at 50o leaving water temp, 122o condensing temp, and 95o ambient temp. As the ambient temperature lowers, units have an increased cooling capacity.
