How Do Our Air-Cooled Chiller Units Work?

The Benefits of Installing an Air-Cooled Process Chiller With Evolution Cooling


Especially in the UK, which has a lower ambient temperature than many other countries, air-cooled water chillers are highly efficient which decreases overall cooling costs. They also require less regulatory compliance, treatment chemicals, and water purchasing than other cooling systems.

Flexibility and Scalability

At Evolution Cooling, all our cooling systems are modular, allowing you to scale in response to increased cooling demands further down the line. We can install additional units without any significant changes to your existing system.

Environmental Impact

Dry air coolers also reduce the environmental impact that comes with chemically treating water and the thermal water discharge associated with other types of chillers. Their lower water usage as a whole is also a key step toward having a more eco-friendly cooling system.

Maintenance and Reliability

Compared to other options, air cooled chillers tend to have lower maintenance costs. This is because they don't use as much water which can lead to scale build up and corrosion, and they don't feature cooling towers which require regular cleaning, treatment, and maintenance.

    Air-Cooled Chiller Units: FAQs

    What is an air-cooled chiller?

    Air cooled chillers are cooling systems that are used to lower the temperature of water and other fluids. They release heat from these fluids into the air which removes the need for a cooling tower. Air cooled chillers are favoured in situations where water resources are limited or expensive, or where installation space is restricted.

    Is an air-cooled chiller better than an AC?

    Air cooled chillers are better if you are looking for the industrial or commercial cooling of fluids and equipment, while AC units are generally better for residential or small-scale commercial air cooling. The choice depends on your budget, scale, and specific cooling requirements.

    Which is best: air-cooled or liquid cooled?

    Air-cooled systems are best if you prioritise ease of installation, lack of maintenance, and space usage. Liquid-cooled systems are best for those needing highly efficient, quiet cooling solutions in noise-sensitive environments. Evaluate factors like budget, space, cooling demands, and environment to make the right choice.

    Do air-cooled chillers need to be outside?

    Air cooled chillers do not have to be outside but they are often installed outside because they need good air flow to release heat effectively. Installing air cooled chillers outside helps to avoid excess heating inside, and it makes maintenance easier, but with proper ventilation and access, they can be placed indoors too.

    What is the life expectancy of an air-cooled chiller?

    The life expectancy of air-cooled chillers typically ranges from 15 to 20 years. Proper maintenance, including regular cleaning of coils and filters and ensuring good airflow, can help extend their lifespan. Operating conditions and environmental factors also significantly impact durability and performance.
