Water Chiller-An Ultimate FAQ Guide by TopChiller.

What is a Water Chiller?

Water Chiller is a specifically designed chilling unit that releases extra heat from industrial machines by using chilled water. It is used in various business applications and industries worldwide.

It comes in various sizes, models, and configurations, and you can customize it to adjust it according to your application.

The working principle is similar to an air chiller. It starts by transferring heat from the refrigerant vapor to the condenser water.

In Water Chiller, the hot and chilled water from the condenser is pumped to the cooling tower. The chilled water cools down the industrial machinery, warming up with time. It is a non-biodegradable and user-friendly unit with excellent efficiency.

What are the Major Components of a Water Chiller?

The major components of a Water Chiller are listed below:


It deals with the evaporation and transitioning from high-pressure liquid to low-pressure gas. This transition helps in cooling as evaporation is a cooling process.


The low-pressure gas is then sent to the condenser condensed back to a liquid form. The energy from this process is again utilized to lower the temperature of the refrigerant, which is moving in the coils.


The resultant from the condenser is then fed into the compressor. There are different types of compressors available based on capacity and design.

The most common ones include a screw compressor, scroll compressor, and semi-hermetic compressor.

Cooling Tower

It is only present in a Water Chiller where the water is close to moist air. The heat travels from an area of higher energy to lower energy, and in this way, the water is chilled.


There are specialized pumps for forcing the water against the gradient:

How Does a Water Chiller Work?

The working of Water Chiller includes the following essential steps:

Step 1

A mechanical refrigeration system is built using the Water Chiller’s evaporator for the phenomenon of vapor compression. The refrigerant flows through the cooling system’s evaporator, compressor, condensers, and valves.

Step 2

Heat exchange occurs at the evaporator level as the refrigerant is evaporated and transformed into a low-pressure vapor. Evaporation is a cooling process, and therefore the coolant loses all its heat.

Step 3

Then the refrigerant enters the compressor, where high pressure is applied, and the low-pressure vapor is converted to a high-pressure liquid.

Step 4

This liquid state is then fed to the condenser. The heat from the transition is released into the environment, leaving the system at a lower tension temperature, thus cooling the water medium.

Step 5

This water from the condenser goes to the cooling tower at a height and an ambient temperature lower than the system.

Step 6

Heat exchange occurs when air is fed through the water, and all the heat is transferred to the air leaving the water at an even lower temperature.

A stable water source must be established for bigger industrial setups with greater cooling loads. The water from the cooling tower is continuously used to cool down the circulating refrigerant.

Water flows through the coils and absorbs all the heat from the running machines and environment.

How Does a Water Chiller Differ from an Air Chiller?

A Water Chiller differs from an air chiller based on efficiency, usage of water, cooling load, capacity, and many other factors.


Water Chiller is more efficient than the air chiller because it uses water as a cooling medium and not air. The chilled water performs the heat exchange much faster than the air.

Cooling Tower

There is a need for a water reservoir and cooling tower in a Water Chiller since you must maintain a constant water flow.

It might add to running costs and may not be suitable for areas with a low water supply. The cost of installing the cooling tower also adds to the cost of the whole setup.

The air chiller does not need the cooling tower and therefore has a more straightforward structure.

Cooling Loads

The greater the cooling load, the greater the demand and higher efficiency required, which can only be met using a Water Chiller.

An air chiller cannot meet the demands of massive industrial setups because it is not as efficient.

Water Chiller can be set up indoors while the cooling tower is situated outside the facility, which adds to the advantages of having a modest size compared to the air chiller.

Air Currents

There’s no need to worry about the air currents because it is situated inside, and the water is used as the medium of cooling.

The cooling tower needs a moist air current, whereas the air chiller needs ambient airflow for working. The former is more long-lasting and produces significant results.

The most common power categories are 208-230V, 380-420V,440-480V,50Hz or 60Hz, 3phase. Although it changes with different nations and each one has its scale.

Water Pump

The water pump has to be proportional to the size of the system so that you can obtain maximum productivity.

Size Connection

The higher the flow rate, the greater is the efficiency. Therefore, the radius of the pipelines shall be per the size and the demand.


R22, R410A, R407C, R404A, R134A are the most advised choices.

R22, although it is very efficient, it is illegal in many countries due to its damaging effects on the ozone layer.

R410A is highly eco-friendly and is being extensively used in many countries worldwide.

R407C, due to the great cooling impact, is preferred on R22.

R404A is ideal for low-temperature applications.

R134A is preferably used at a higher temperature.

What are the Additional Accessories of a Water Chiller?

The evaporator, condenser, compressor, and expansion valves are present in the air and water type chiller. Still, the cooling tower and the water pump are exclusive and unique to the Water Chiller.

Cooling Tower

It is usually located outside the building, allowing the interaction between the air and the water.

The air used for this purpose is moist air which takes the heat from the water, and the water is chilled as a result.

The chilled water is then returned to the system to absorb heat as heat always travels from a higher medium to a lower medium.

Water Pump

A strong water pump is required to pump the water against the gradient. When the water flows from a height, it flows spontaneously and gives off energy, thus making a passive process.

However, when it is to be transported against gravity, it is an active process and needs energy in the form of a pump.

What is the Cooling Capacity of a Water Chiller?

The cooling capacity of a Water Chiller is its efficiency of producing cooling and lowering the temperature of its surroundings, absorbing heat produced in the industries.

You can determine the cooling capacity by the following method:

Compute Temperature Differential = Incoming Water Temperature (°c) – Required Chilled Water Temperature.

Calculate the water flow rate you need each hour (m³/hour).

High loads of cooling limit = Water Flow Rate into Temperature Differential

It is divided by 0.86 divided by 3.517.

Oversize the Water Chiller by 20% Ideal Size in Tons = Ton x 1.2.

This is the ideal size for your application requirements.

For instance, the size of chiller needed to cool 5m³ water from 25°c to 15 °c in 60 minutes is calculated as

Temperature Differential = 25°c-15°c=10°c.

Water Flow Rate = 5 m³/hour.

Ton Capacity = 5 x 10 ÷ 0.86 ÷ 3.517 = 16.53 Ton.

Oversize the Water Chiller = 16.53 x 1.2 = 19.84 Ton.

A 19.84 tons chiller is required.

What is the Temperature Ranges for a Water Chiller?

A Water Chiller is capable enough to control the range from 5 to 35 degrees Celsius. Talking about low temperatures, it can go as low as -40 degrees.

It covers a considerable range and applies to a vast range of applications.

Also, the ambient temperature shall be regulated, and it can be adjusted easily when the setup is indoors.

There is a need for special water treatment and preventive measures to maintain efficiency in harsh environments.
