What is a Water Cooled Chiller?

The operation of a chiller can be defined as a method for removing heat. How this is accomplished involves the use of several steps starting with the use of a refrigerant that transfers heat away from water that comes from equipment and lowers the water’s temperature.


A water cooled chiller removes heat and sends cooled, recirculating water back to an operation, process, or equipment. It is a sophisticated method for dissipating heat by removing it from the operation or process that created the heat. Water cooled chiller systems are constantly removing heat from an application and assisting in maintaining production efficiency.


There are four main stages to the cycle of a water cooled chiller, which include evaporation, compression, condensation, and an expansion valve. At each step of the cycle, a thermodynamic process takes place. The key to these cycles is the refrigerant that is delivered in different phases at each cycle at varying pressures and temperatures.


The operation of a water cooled chiller begins with water entering the evaporator, where the refrigerant moves from being a liquid to a gas and absorbs the heat from the water. The refrigerant, in the form of a gas, then enters the compressor where its temperature and pressure increase in preparation for the next step. In the condenser, the high temperature refrigerant gas is then converted into a high-pressure saturated liquid. The last stage of the cycle involves the expansion valve from which the refrigerant becomes a mixture of liquid and gas that re-enters the evaporator to begin a new cycle.

Advantages of Water Cooled Chillers

Water cooled chillers have several advantages over other cooling methods, one of which is their smaller footprint that makes it possible to install them indoors. Having a chiller unit in an enclosed space reduces maintenance costs related to damage from weather conditions that can negatively affect chiller components. Additionally, with the absence of wind, cold, sun, and rain, the life span of a chiller is significantly extended.


The exceptional efficiency of a water cooled chiller is related to its ‘wet bulb.’ This factor influences the activity of the refrigerant that operates at a more efficient pressure and temperature and enhances the performance of a water cooled chiller.


The initial cost for the installation of a water cooled chiller is higher than that of an air chiller. These costs, however, are easily recovered during its operation. The key factors in the recovery of the initial investment is the high efficiency and smooth operation of a Universal Chilling Systems water cooled chiller. Essentially, once a water cooled chiller from Universal Chilling Systems is installed and operating, it performs with little need for maintenance.
