Oil Coolers from Cold Stream

Home » Chiller Encyclopedia

Refrigeration is the process of removing heat from substances under controlled conditions. Mechanical refrigeration system consists of four major components i.e. Compressor, Evaporator, Condenser and Refrigerant metering device The compressor is the heart of refrigeration system. It pumps heat through the system in the form of heat-laden refrigerant. It reduces the pressure on the low-pressure side which includes evaporator & increases the pressure in the high pressure side. This creates refrigerant  flow from low pressure side to high pressure side.

The most common compressors used in refrigeration are Reciprocating , scroll, screw-driven centrifugal. With various refrigerants chillers Used in industry
In industrial application, chilled water or other liquid from the chiller is pumped through process. Industrial chillers are used for cooling of products and factory machinery in a wide range of industries.

They are often used in the plastic industry in plastic processing like injection molding, blow molding, extruders, laminations, p.p. films, Rigid P.V.C. pipe, Calendars, chemicals, Pharmaceutical process, Dyes intermediates, Mineral water soda process, paper converting, Coating chill rolls, Plating and anodizing, Lubricants/oil cooling, Dairy, Bakery, Food Products, Dehumidifier, Conditioned air, welding equipment, cement processing, vacuum systems, X-ray diffraction, analytical equipment, compressed air and gas cooling.

Chillers are usually small in size (cooling capacity), usually from 1 tons to 100 tons
Central chillers generally have capacities ranging from ten tons to hundreds or thousands of tons
Water chillers can be either water cooled or air-cooled. water cooled chillers offer efficiencies better than air cooled  is due to heat rejection at or near the air's wet-bulb temperature rather than the higher, dry-bulb temperature but it is used in conjunction with cooling tower

Cold room

The versatile modular wake in cold rooms concept offer various advantages over "built in " conventional walk in . Salient features of cold rooms includes :

  • Tongue and groove sectional panel lock together quickly and simply, to form virtually any desire walk-in size.
  • Modular panel are easily disassembled, to enlarge or relocate for future requirement.
  • To retain the cooling capacity and freezer space, Tee section and vertical panel are used to partition the walk -in- cold room of space permit, another room could reading be added to create a dual temperature unit.
  • Available in the in a variety of Height and width dimensions walls ,floors, doors frames , door frames , door plugs , tee walls , corner & coiling.
  • Most advanced high quality insulation materials PUF to assure best insulating efficiency and uniform structure available in 60,80, 100,125mm thickness.
  • For different application different metal finish are used such as aluminum, pre painted steel, stainless steel, galvanized steel, galvanized.
  • The posi-seal closure cushion the closing movement, shuts the door noiselessly and keep it firmly closed thus avoiding the cooling loss.
Sweep gaskets are used for air tight seal along the bottom of the door with a double sweep, which remains flexible under various temperature extremes and continual use.

Other feature includes :

a) View part to facilitate better view in side the cold room
b) Suction safety release.
c) Digital temperature indicator.
d) Interior and exterior ramp
e) Vapour proof light feature.
f) Cam-lock
g) Flush type door

Application areas :

Ice cream industries, Chemical industries, Pharmaceutical industries, Research industries, Research laboratories, Horticulture, Sericulture, Hospitals, fast foods, sea foods etc
