High-Quality Process Chillers
Customized Chillers for Industrial Applications
Industrial process chillers are used in a wide variety of applications that require chilled water, oil, and gas cooling process loop. These applications relate to many industries like the ones we have listed below and many more.
The function of a process chiller is to remove heat from one location, which usually is the process equipment or the actual medium of product, to another location. This location is usually outside the facility and away from all processes to maintain efficiency and cost-effectiveness. Our process chillers most commonly use a water/glycol solution to remove heat, transfer the fluid through the industrial process, and recirculate to form a cooling loop designed specifically for the industrial process it was manufactured for. This allows us to utilize a reservoir and pump system all built into one turnkey solution.
Why Do You Need an Industrial Process Chiller?
In the realm of real-world physics that we are bound by, there is nothing that is 100% efficient. No motor, machine, or process can avoid the energy lost to heat or work. If this heat is not removed from the system, the process becomes slow, inefficient, and cost heavy over time. Nobody wants to shut down their plant for maintenance or, even worse, equipment failure. Without process cooling from process chillers, the industry would be plagued with these issues.
Using our ICEWAGON Chillers will provide constant temperature and pressure control over your industrial process. With our process chiller handling this process, you can rest easy knowing that our ICEWAGON is keeping your industry safe and efficient.

How Does an Industrial Process Chiller Work?
Now that we have established what a process chiller does and why you might need one, you might wonder how it works. In most cases, a pumping system circulates a cold water or glycol-water solution out of the process chiller into the industrial process. The cooling medium from the process chiller then removes heat from the process, and the medium, now heated, returns to the process chiller to reenter the loop of cooling and back to the industrial process. This cooling is achieved with a chemical compound of HFC (hydrofluorocarbons) refrigerants.
There are a multitude of different refrigerants which all serve a purpose towards unique application-based or temperature-based processes. They all boil down to the same principle of compression and phase change of the refrigerant from liquid to gas and gas to liquid. This cycle of heating and cooling is the crux of the refrigeration cycle.
This cycle, as seen below in our refrigeration diagram, begins with a low-pressure liquid/gas mixture entering the evaporator. In the evaporator, heat from the process solution boils the refrigerant, which changes it from a low-pressure liquid to a low-pressure gas which then enters the compressor to become a high temperature – high-pressure gas. This then enters the condenser where the ambient air or, if this is a water chiller, the condenser water removes the heat to cool it to a high-pressure liquid which then travels to the expansion valve, which regulates the amount of liquid refrigerant enters the evaporator. This cycle loops over and over to provide a consistent temperature and pressure required for the industrial processes these are designed for.
