Basic characteristics of compression chillers
Compression chiller is a device that uses refrigerant to compress low-temperature and low-pressure refrigerant into high-temperature and high-pressure gas under the action of a compressor, and dissipates heat through the cooling medium in the condenser and turns it into a liquid, thereby generating refrigeration capacity. . It has the following characteristics:
1. Good refrigeration effect: Because of the use of technologies such as compressors and condensers, the refrigeration efficiency and refrigeration capacity can be effectively improved.
2. Small size: Compared with absorption chillers, compression chillers have smaller footprint and volume, making them more suitable for use in situations with limited space.
3. Simple maintenance and upkeep: Since the internal structure of the compression chiller is relatively simple and has fewer parts, it is relatively easy to maintain and maintain.
Working principle of compression chiller
The core components of a compression chiller are the compressor and condenser. The refrigerant is compressed into a high-temperature and high-pressure gas under the action of the compressor, dissipates heat through the cooling medium in the condenser and turns into a liquid, and then passes through the expansion valve to reduce the pressure and temperature and turn into a low-temperature and low-pressure gas. Refrigeration purposes.
Application areas of compression chillers
Compression chillers are widely used in air conditioning, cold storage, food processing, medicine, chemical and other industries. Compared with absorption chillers, compression chillers have higher cooling efficiency, larger cooling capacity, and are simple to operate, stable and reliable. Therefore, compression chillers are more popular where rapid cooling is required and large cooling capacity is required.
