No industrial process, machine, or motor is 100% efficient, with heat being the most common byproduct of those inefficiencies. If this heat is not removed, it will accumulate over time causing reduced production times, equipment shutdowns, and even premature equipment failure. It is necessary to incorporate cooling into industrial process system design to avoid these issues.
Using a chiller to provide cooling has multiple benefits. A chiller provides consistent temperature and pressure to your industrial process. Eliminating temperature and pressure variables simplifies the process development and optimization, ensuring the highest quality product. Instead of a wasteful, single-pass-through system, a chiller recirculates the cooling water. The recirculation minimizes the cost of water consumption which can be expensive and environmentally unfriendly.
