Portable Chillers Review

Portable chillers are designed to remove heat energy from fluid. The fluid may be air, water, or a glycol mixture which is circulated through a heat exchanger medium.

Portable chillers are available in capacities ranging from 1/8 ton to 60 or more tons. Typical portable chillers can supply temperatures between 20°F to 80° F. Custom and low temperature portable chillers are capable of supplying temperatures as low as -45°F.
Portable chillers are mounted on casters for ease of movement from one application to another in a plant and are generally the best solution for smaller or a variety of applications.

It is important to properly size a portable chiller. An oversized chiller will not only cost more to purchase but will cost more to operate due to excessive cycling. A chiller manufacturer will assist you in properly sizing the equipment. Be prepared to provide the following information to help determine the size: the type of material being cooled, the temperature of coolant leaving the chiller (to process), the temperature of coolant entering the chiller (from process), and the gallons per minute of coolant flowing through the chiller.

Typical applications for portable chillers include: injection molding, extrusion, blow molding, machine tool, laser, chemical, optical coating, pharmaceutical, water jet, rubber, heat treating, semiconductor, metallizing, die casting, printing, plating, anodizing, welding, and more.
