Energy Conservation Approach for Chiller System
The condenser filament of a water-cooled air conditioner or heat exchanger must be clean, free of scale and biofilm to allow good heat/cooling exchange. There are many ways to maintain cleanliness. But the most popular and effective is the Ball Technic system, which is an automatic cleaning system. without wasting time stopping the chiller. This prevents scale build-up inside the condenser. It can help keeping the cooling capacity like new and clean all the time. It plays an important role in maximizing chiller performance.
However, if your Chiller has been used for a long time, much more time, much more cost to maintain. You may consider replacing a new machine. It will be the most worthwhile investment even if it requires a high investment. Because today’s new generation machines have evolved a lot. With today’s technology, the chillers are surely better than the ones from the past ten and twenty years ago. Nowadays, new chillers are designed and developed to have lower kilowatts per ton of cooling than older chillers. It can save energy 20-30% more than the old model, and one more thing, the new chiller mostly uses CFC-free refrigerants that will destroy the Earth’s atmosphere as well. So, comparing between the cost of repairs and the cost of purchasing a new, more efficient machine; which one is more worthwhile?
