Installation Requirements of Industrial Water Chiller

All the Installation requirements of industrial water chiller you should notice to make sure the chilling unit can run as long as it can.

Industrial chillers can be divided into two categories according to the heat dissipation mode: 1. Water cooling units; 2. Air cooling units.

The water-cooled unit must be connected with the cooling tower and the inlet and outlet pipes of cooling water and chilled water. The cooling tower and cooling pump should be selected according to the refrigeration capacity and compression power, with the inlet pressure ≥ 1.5bar, and the diameter of the inlet and outlet pipe should be consistent with the diameter of the cooling water inlet and outlet pipe.

However, the air-cooled unit only needs to connect the chilled water inlet and outlet pipes and make-up water source. After the power supply is connected, the operation can be carried out. The ventilation should be smooth, and there should be no dust and debris around to avoid being inhaled into the unit.

1.The diameter of the water pipe

The diameter of the water pipe connection port reserved by the unit is standard size. When the remote transmission is adopted, a larger diameter water pipe must be used for connection. In any case, the diameter of the water pipe should not be smaller than the standard diameter of the connection port, otherwise, the pressure alarm will be given and the compressor and water pump will be damaged greatly.

2.Connecting The Water Pipe

When connecting the water pipe, the user should refer to the installation diagram to connect the pipeline, confirm the position of the inlet and outlet pipe, distinguish the cooling water pipe and the chilled water pipe.The wrong connection of the pipe will damage the unit.Only after ensuring the normal connection of the whole system can the system be started up and run.

3.With Connector or Flange

When the water pipe is connected to the unit, it must be connected with a connector or flange, so that it can be easily removed when necessary.

4.Connect a Hose

A section of hose is connected to the outlet and inlet of the water pipe to reduce vibration transmission.

5.Valves and Filter

If permitted, install valves on water pipes to effectively control water flow. It is suggested to install a filter at the water inlet to prevent sediment and debris.

6.Check Leakage Problem

Check the internal and external have leakage problem or not,when the water inlet/outlet  valve of evaporator and condenser is fully opened.

7.Wrap With Insulation Material

The water pipe should be wrapped with enough insulation cotton to protect it from frost on the surface and keep the chilling water temperature.

8.Winter Protection Measures

In winter, when the unit stops operation, the water in the water pump and water pipe may freeze, causing damage to the unit and water pipe. In order to prevent icing, when the unit stops, the water pump can be effectively started. If there is still possibility of icing, all water in the water pipe will be discharged. If drainage is difficult, an anti icing mixture such as ethylene glycol or propanol can be used.

9.By-pass Pipe

When installing the unit, please install the bypass pipe in the chilled water pipeline device. When the chilled water outlet valve is turned down, the bypass pipe valve can be adjusted to relieve the pump pressure and prevent the evaporator from freezing.

10.Check Before Running

When the air-cooled chiller is started up and running, please pay attention to whether the water pump and exhaust fan turn normally before starting up and running.

11.High/Low Pressure

When the unit is running, please pay attention to the pressure display content: water cooled high pressure is (1.2 ~ 1.8MPa), low pressure is (0.3 ~ 0.6MPa); air cooled high pressure is (1.2 ~ 1.9mpa), low pressure is (0.3 ~ 0.6MPa). If the value is too high or too low, it means that the fault is a precursor or improper use. Please check it in time or inform the manufacturer to deal with it. Maintenance in advance is better than repair afterwards.

12.Cooling Water and Scale

To ensure that the condenser is not easy to scale and can be used for a long time, please use softened water (or tap water) as cooling water. If a cooling tower is used, the cooling water should be replaced regularly.

13.Regular Cleanning

The condenser and evaporator of the chiller usually need to be cleaned after a period of use (the cleaning cycle depends on the surrounding environment and water quality).

14.Temperature Setting

It is better to control the outlet water temperature of the unit at 7 ~ 12 ℃. When adjusting the temperature controller, please note that low temperature will cause some protection devices of the unit to fail.

15.Electric Control Elements and Protection Devices

All electric control elements and protection devices of the unit have been strictly tested by the manufacturer. Users are not allowed to change or remove them during inspection and maintenance. Forced operation without protection will cause great damage to the unit.
