Air Cooled Variable Speed Chillers “VS Chiller” with the variable speed compressor operates effectively between 10% and 100% of its rated capacity. This means a 10 ton chiller can operate very efficiently as a 1 ton as well as up to a 10 ton chiller. This new design applies proven, variable speed “green” compressor technology from the HVAC industry to produce up to a stunning 50% energy savings over traditional hot gas bypass regulation. These energy cost savings can pay for the chiller investment in less than 3 years. In addition, utility companies may offer purchasing incentives and rebates.
An Air cooled chiller system is designed to use ambient air surrounding the condensing unit to cool a refrigerant back into a liquid once it has absorbed heat from the process. Portable, air cooled style chillers refers to a configuration that contains a refrigeration circuit, a reservoir and pump, along with controls.
