When To Choose A Split Chiller?

Split chillers are reserved for very special situations when neither packaged air-cooled or water-cooled chillers will do the job. When determining whether a split system chiller is right for you, there are two main factors to consider, both of them are related to your application environment.

If you consider a split system chiller for your application ,please confirm your  environment meets the following conditions:

▪ Your application environment cannot accommodate a packaged water-cooled chiller, either due to lack of constant water access or high humidity

▪ The user environment is poorly ventilated and packaged air-cooled chillers are prohibited from being used.

If you meet these criteria, an air-cooled split system chiller may be the best industrial cooling solution to ensure your medical, industrial, beer, dairy or food processing equipment stays up and running.

How to Install A Split System Chiller?

Split system chillers have two different components installed in different areas. The first part includes the evaporator and compressor and is installed indoors. The second section is an air-cooled condenser, installed outdoors to maximize ventilation.

Part One Component: Evaporator and Compressor

Part One Installation Location: Indoor

Part Two Component: Condenser

Part Two Installation Location: Outdoor

The installation process for a split system chiller includes an extra step that is not required with conventional packaged air-cooled chillers that are already pre-charged. The contractor must pipe the refrigerant piping of the split chiller by installing liquid and suction copper refrigerant piping from the indoor evaporator to the outdoor condenser. After the two parts are joined together, they work as a cohesive unit to provide industrial process cooling.

What Are Benefits of Split Chillers for Your Application?

If you are considering a split chiller for your application, check out these three benefits unique to these specialized systems:

No Freeze Protection Required – With an indoor evaporator, there is no need to deploy freeze protection strategies typically associated with outdoor units, including the use of glycol, drainage systems, and running pumps throughout the winter.

Reduce noise - The indoor condenser of a traditional air-cooled chiller will produce higher noise due to the cooling fan. A split system chiller‘s outdoor condenser will reduce indoor volume, making it ideal for noise-sensitive environments.

Extended Lifespan – Any time an industrial chiller component is installed outdoors, where it is exposed to the elements, the life of the unit can be shortened. With an indoor evaporator and compressor, an air-cooled split system chiller is likely to last longer than a traditional packaged air-cooled system with all components outside.

When the application environment cannot accommodate a packaged air-cooled or water-cooled industrial chiller, an air-cooled split system chiller may be the ideal solution for your industrial cooling needs.

We offer and engineer split system chillers ranging from 1.5 to 20 tons, with many units available for quick delivery. As a professional chiller manufacturer with over 15 years of industrial process cooling experience and a proven 99.4% uptime rate, we’ve perfected the goal of keeping your equipment going strong.

What Are the Difference Between A Split Chiller and A Packaged Chiller?

The difference between split chillers and packaged chillers can be roughly distinguished from three aspects: structure, installation requirements, and application environment.

▪ There are obvious differences in the structure and composition of the equipment.

The split chiller consists of two parts of equipment. The indoor and outdoor parts are connected through pipes and lines. The indoor unit consists of an evaporator,compressors, a thermostat, an insulated water tank, and a circulation pump. The outdoor unit is mainly composed of a air-cooled condenser.

▪ Equipment installation requirements and difficulty differences.

The indoor unit and outdoor unit of the split chiller should be installed separately, and the installation location requirements are high. For example, the outdoor unit should be installed in a ventilated space, free of debris, sheltered from wind, rain, etc. Under certain circumstances, the indoor unit should be as close as possible to the equipment that needs cooling.

The packaged air-cooled chiller comes with 4 high-quality casters. Each system is integrated in the box structure. It only needs to be connected to the power supply and pipes at a suitable installation location for trial operation, but a well-ventilated environment must be maintained.

▪ Differences in application environments.

Due to its split structure, the split chiller will produce noise when the outdoor unit is working. The indoor unit has low noise and is very suitable for places that require a quiet production and operating environment, such as university scientific research institutions, R&D center laboratories, etc.

How I Can Choose The Right 5 Ton 6HP Custom Air Cooled Split System Chiller For Your Application?

There are four important chiller specifications you need consider when you choose a chiller for your application :the cooling capacity for chiller ,the voltage required for operation, the associated pump horsepower and flow rate (contact us for custom selection), refrigerant, and the evaporator type.

8.1 Calculate Right Cooling Capacity For Chiller

One of the most frequently ask about how we can know the cooling capacity for chillers.  We use KW ,Ton, But/h,Kcal/h to choose chiller cooling capacity :1 KW=860 kcal/h ;  1 TON=3.517 KW;  1 KW=3412 Btu/h;

There is also a formula to calculate the cooling capacity for chiller:.

Cooling Capacity(kw)= Flow Rate(m3/h)*Temp Change(T1-T2)/0.86

Heat Load= C(specific heat)* M(quality output per hour )*Temp Change(T1-T2)

Oversize the chiller by 20% Ideal Size in KW = KW x 1.2

Noted : T1:Incoming Water Temperature (℃)      T2:Required Chilled Water Temperature(℃)    

For example, what size of chiller is required to cool 10m³ water from 35°c to 15 °c in 1 hour?

Temperature Differential = 35℃-15℃=20℃

Water Flow Rate = 10 m³/hour

Cooling Capacity in KW = 10 x 20 ÷ 0.86 = 232 KW

Oversize the chiller = 232 x 1.2 = 278.4KW

278.4 kw cooling capacity for chiller is required.

8.2 Power

Different countries and regions have different standards for industrial electricity, the common power supplies are 208-230V, 380-420V,440-480V,50Hz or 60Hz, 3phase.

Such in Philippines ,the power supply is 220V 60HZ 3PH , 380V 60HZ 3PH ,460V 60HZ 3PH;

in Singapore and Malaysia ,the power supply is 415V 50HZ 3PH;

in Mexico ,the power supply is 220V 60HZ 3PH;

In USA ,the power supply is 208V 60HZ 3PH;575V 60HZ 3PH;480V 60HZ 3PH and so on

8.3 Water Pump

When you decide the capacity/tonnage of the chiller, we will recommend you the suitable pump in KW,which standard water pump is about 2 bar .If you need more high water pressure , please us when you inquiry.

8.4 Refrigerant

R22, R410A, R407C, R404A, R134A are optional choices.

R22: good cooling effect, but R22 is considered a powerful greenhouse gas, so it’s forbidden in most countries.

R410A: eco-friendly, R-410A has replaced R-22 as the preferred refrigerant for use in residential and commercial air conditioners in Japan, Europe, and the United States. R-410A operates at higher pressures than other refrigerants.

R407C: a good replacement for R22, good cooling effect.

R404A: suitable for application that requires low temperature(below -10°c).

R134A: a non-flammable gas used primarily as a “high-temperature” refrigerant, suitable for air-cooled chiller working at a high ambient temperature above 50℃.

8.5 Evaporator Choose

Chillers generally have two types of evaporators: one is coil in water tank evaporator ,the other one is shell and tube evaporator.

Coil and tank evaporator, which has a built-in water storage tank for more convenient use,so there’s no need for extra buffer tanks. This is also our standard evaporator for chiller , if you don’t have buffer tank ,we just use this evaporator for your chiller.

Shell and tube type evaporator, which requires an additional water buffer tank to connect .

Shipping Way of Split Chiller

As a professional custom chiller supplier &exporter,we have our own shipment forwarder to arrange the shipment .Our chiller machine is with plywood packing,which prevent damage during transportation and meet export standards.There are three ways can delivery your chiller unit :

1. Ship by Air: As the chiller is with compressor ,water pump and fans ,the compressed refrigerant and oil inside the compressor is a dangerous item with the possibility of explosion , so it needs to release the compressed refrigerant before transportation. (It means that water chiller without refrigerant when choosing this shipping way. After the machine arrives at your destination, you need to add refrigerant by local professionals. The airline company also request us to provide many documents to prove that the chiller not a dangerous product. The freight cost by air is very high may be higher than the cost of chiller , So By air for delivery is not the mode of transport recommended to our customer.

2. Ship by Sea: The transportation time is longer than by air , but the freight cost is cheap ,and there is no need to add refrigerant after the equipment arrives at the destination.This shipping way is the most suitable mode of transportation for you to delivery your local port.
