How Does a Water Cooled Chiller System Work?
How does a water cooled chiller work?
water cooled chiller system uses water and the refrigeration cycle to achieve cooling.
In other words, it helps to cool your machines or room.
How a typical GesonChiller water cooled chiller working principle.
The cooling process cools down the water from the evaporator, once the refrigerant gets to the important part of the refrigeration cycle.
Then, a pumping machine will circulate it from the chiller system to the process.
Because the water is cool, it will absorb heat from the process and become warm, then it returns to the chiller.
So the water is the secondary refrigerant, water cooled chiller systems remove heat from processes or rooms, achieving cooling.

The main differences between water cooled chiller vs air cooled chiller.
Are different heat-exchange media, different design principles, and different installation methods. The details are as follows:
1. Different heat exchange media
1. Air-cooled chiller
The medium of heat exchange is air, which uses special fans for chillers and variable-frequency axial fans, so it is called air-cooled
2. Water-cooled chiller
The use of water to exchange heat requires the installation of a special cooling tower for the chiller. The source is water, and the special cooling tower is equipped, so it is called “water cooling”.
Two, the design principle is different
1. Air-cooled chiller
The air-cooled machine takes away heat through the flow of air,
and the air through the condensing coil to take away the heat,
and the refrigerant inside the machine is cooled.
2. Water-cooled chiller
Through the cooling water circulation of the water cooling tower,
the heating is taken away,
then the chilled water is chilled.
Three, the installation method is different
1. Air-cooled chiller
The air-cooled chiller is movable, without auxiliary accessories,
and can be directly placed outdoors.
It does not need a machine room.
2. Water-cooled chiller

The role and requirements of cooling towers and cooling pumps
- The high-temperature cooling water from the water-cooled chiller, the cooling pump sends the high-temperature cooling water from the chiller to the cooling water tower
- The cooling tower returns to the chiller after cooling the cooling water
- The pressure difference between the cooling water inlet and the cooling water return water is about 3-4kg.
The role and requirements of the refrigeration pump.
- The role of the refrigerating pump is to deliver low-temperature chilled water to the client, and then return to the chiller after the heat is exchanged
- The pressure difference between inlet and return water is about 3-4kg
The role and requirements of the water-cooled chiller.
- 1. Function: absorb the heat of high-temperature chilled water and transfer it to low-temperature chilled water
- 2. The temperature difference between freezing and cooling water is 4-6 degrees Celsius
Principle of the water-cooled chiller system.
- 1. The cold water produced by the water-cooled unit is sent to the client through the refrigeration pump, exchanged with the cold water with a higher temperature, and returned to the chiller.
- 2. Then the heat of the high-temperature chilled water is transferred to the low-temperature cooling water through the chiller, and the cooling water becomes the high-temperature cooling water.
- 3. The high-temperature cooling water is sent to the cooling tower through the cooling pump, and the heat is discharged to the outdoors through the cooling tower, turning into low-temperature cooling water and returning to the chiller.
Start sequence of water-cooled chiller system
- Open the cooling and freezing pumps water inlet and outlet valves
- Open the chiller water inlet and outlet valves
- Open the cooling tower water inlet and outlet valves
- Start the cooling tower
- Start the cooling pump
- Start the refrigeration pump
- Start the chiller
The reason for opening the inlet and outlet valves of the main engine, cooling pump, refrigeration pump, and cooling tower first
- The refrigeration of the water-cooled chiller system is mainly transmitted by water
- Water is transported by pumps and pipes
- Therefore, before the water pump is started, the valve should be opened first to ensure the smoothness of the pipeline.
- If the pipeline is blocked, once the water pump starts. The pipe will burst under huge water pressure
Turn on the cooling tower again, turn on the cooling pump, turn on the refrigeration pump, and turn on the water-cooled chiller.
- 1. The cooling tower must ensure that the cooling water can dissipate normally
- 2. The cooling pump must ensure that it can circulate and absorb the heat conducted by the chiller
- 3. The refrigeration pump must ensure normal circulation and release heat through the chiller
Water-cooled chiller system refrigeration system stop sequence
- Stop the chiller host
- Stop the refrigeration pump
- Stop the cooling pump
- Stop the cooling tower
- Close the cooling pump and the water inlet and outlet valves of the refrigeration pump
- Close the inlet and outlet valves of the chiller host
