A chiller is the most important component of any central air conditioning system, often referred to as the heart of the system. There are 2 main types of chillers; centrifugal and absorption. These come in different shapes, sizes, capacities and brands.

Guide to checking and selecting Chillers

A chiller is a machine that removes heat from a liquid by lowering the temperature of the water before circulating through cooling devices such as fan coils and air conditioning units, thus cooling the air. Chillers come in two main types based on their internal function, centrifugal and absorption, which are available on both industrial and residential scales, which will be discussed shortly.

Centrifugal Chiller (Vapor Compression)

Vapor compression chillers are categorized into two groups based on their operation: water-cooled chillers and air-cooled chillers.

Water-cooled chillers have the advantage of being less expensive compared to air-cooled chillers. On the other hand, air-cooled chillers offer the ability to operate in humid weather conditions, the option for installation on roofs, balconies, or any outdoor space, and no requirement for a cooling tower or water consumption.

The types of compressors used in vapor compression chillers are:

  • Reciprocating compressors (piston)
  • Screw compressors
  • Scroll compressors
  • Centrifugal compressors (New-generation)

Absorption Chiller (Vapor Absorption)

Absorption chillers, which require a heat energy source, are categorized into five types:

  • Warm water absorption chillers
  • Hot water absorption chillers
  • Direct flame absorption chillers
  • Steam absorption chillers
  • Energy recovery absorption chillers

Vapor absorption chillers are also divided into two groups based on internal operation: single effect and double effect.

The primary components of vapor absorption chillers consist on a condenser, generator, absorber, evaporator, solution pump, refrigerant pump, lithium bromide, control valves, thermostats, electrical panel, and the control circuit.

Buying all kinds of chillers

The Ultimate Chiller Buyers Guide

As today, achieving the desired temperature in various environments (homes, offices, etc.) requires advanced equipment to provide cooling during hot seasons. Chillers are among these essential and advanced devices. On the specialized website of the DamaTajhiz HVAC group, comprehensive information about the various types of chillers are available for you, our valued visitors. This information will assist you in making the best decision when purchasing a chiller.

Approximate Calculation of a Chiller Capacity

To determine the chiller capacity needed for a project is crucial to consider both the nominal and actual capacity of the chiller, particularly concerning the average temperature (outdoor) of the hottest days of summer in the chiller’s operational area.

Typically, facility experts calculate the capacity of a chiller for each project by considering factors such as:

  • Geographical conditions (ambient temperature)
  • The average temperature of the hottest days of summer (outdoor temperature)
  • Altitude above sea level
  • Relative air humidity
  • Building usage (average indoor temperature)
  • Building materials and design
  • Building orientation with the sun
  • Number of floors and building surface area
  • The number of occupants and electrical equipment inside the building

These factors help determine the volume of cold water needed and the appropriate reliability coefficients for the chiller's performance.

For an initial estimate (phase 1 electricity) of the required chiller capacity for residential and office buildings in climates similar to Tehran, Mashhad, Karaj, Isfahan, Erbil, Kabul, Sulaymaniyah, Halba, and other cities with comparable conditions, you can consider a nominal capacity of 1 ton of refrigeration per 30 square meters of the building.

Before finalizing the capacity calculation and selecting the required chiller for your project, consult with the experts at DamaTajhiz HVAC Group for accurate cooling load calculations. Our team is always available to assist you.

Buying a Chiller

On the DamaTajhiz HVAC website, you can find technical information for either water or air chillers in various reputed brands with their main guarantee (currently only available in Iran) as we aim to provide the best options for optimal and smart purchases.

Price & Payment of a Chiller

There are various effective factors that affect the price of a chiller. The most important of which are the type of the chiller (air-cooler or water-cooled – vapor compression or vapor absorption), capacity and other technical specifications, manufacturing quality, and the brand of the chiller.

Additionally, the cost of the device installation varies depending on capacity, specific project conditions, and workers' fees.

All chillers featured on the DamaTajhiz HVAC website have product identification ID and competitive prices, with discounts already included.

Things You Need  to Know Before Buying a Chiller

Before purchasing the desired chiller, consider its capacity, dimensions, transportation method, and installation feasibility in the engine room.

It is also crucial to consider adequate lateral and longitudinal spacing for annual maintenance of the condenser, evaporator, and chiller compressor and any potential repairs. Adhering to these intervals is the key to ensuring routine maintenance and keeping chillers operating at optimal performance levels.
