How To Choose The Right Air-Cooled Chiller?

Are you looking forward to installing a cooling system? Then definitely, it is not an easy task to select the best air-cooling system.

That’s why in this content, we will cover all the credential points that will help you to select the best air-cooling system at a competitive price.

What is an air-cooled chiller?

It is a cooling system that circulates chilled water in the entire building for cooling and dehydrating building air. It is a generally used cooling refrigerator system in commercial and industrial facilities. It absorbs heat and releases it there where you can use it or not create a problem.

What are the tools that used in a chiller?

It consists of four parts. The parts are an evaporator, a compressor, a condenser, and an expansion unit.

The chiller system has a refrigerant. Initially, working starts with minimizing pressure refrigerant inflowing the evaporator.

How to pick the  correct air-cooled chiller?

Every industrial and commercial building shares a different environment. It depends on the manufacturing unit, production capacity, etc. There are six parameters you can consider while choosing a cooling system.

  1. Regulate the heat load:

Based on the need, you can calculate the heat load. It will help you choose the chiller’s capacity as per your planned application. Chillers come in various sizes with different capacities. Therefore, you need to select an accurate method to calculate heat load.

  1. To know the type of coolant, temperature, and flow rate:

Know the temperature and flow rate because both are the main element of the cooling method. It can be calculated by the method through which heat is transferred to the coolant. It also depends on which type of coolant gets used.

  1. Recognize installation atmosphere:

It is mandatory to know the fixing location of the chiller. It can be indoor or outdoor installation. It will affect the size of the air-cooled chiller. You can add a few accessories such as air filters, sump heaters, etc.

  1. Use chiller performance curves- 

It is to examine the graph of chiller capacity and its performance. It will be available in the product description.

  1. Study pump performance curves- 

It will help you to check the pressure applying capacity of the pump. Also, to examine the pump performance graph that will ensure you the pressure is suitable for your application or not

  1. Final Selection

Lastly, verify remaining usage needs like control features, control choices, footmark, agency listing, color, etc. Ensure to confirm all the features before buying an air-cooled chiller.


Go for a standard air-cooled chiller. It will provide consistent and quality service, with standard spare parts.
