Portable Chillers Have Scroll Compressors

pn6-1298.jpgPS Series portable chillers are designed to cover the most popular sizes and range in capacity from 5 to 15 hp. They have scroll compressors, brazed plate evaporators, an off-the-shelf autotuning control and come in either air- or water-cooled versions.

According to the builder, scroll compressor technology is typically not available on chillers in these sizes and capacities. In developing the compressor, computer modeling was used to optimize compressor selection and performance for both high- and medium-temperature mold cooling applications.

Scroll compressors are said to offer smooth, quiet operation with up to 15% higher energy efficiency compared to other compressors. This is due to the fact that there are no valves, no compression losses and little heat transfer between suction and discharge gas.

The 5-ton model is priced at $7500 and the 7.5-ton model at $10,000. Prices for the 10- and 15-ton models have not yet been set.
