Precision Temperature Control


RECIRCULATE FLUID FROM A REMOTE TANK

Energy Saving, Space Saving and Quiet

Open loop industrial chillers control the temperature of a liquid in a remote open tank or sump by continuously recirculating it. The liquid is drawn from the tank, pumped through the chiller and back to the tank.

Turmoil open loop water chillers can use water for cooling instead of air. The condenser does not cool the hot refrigerant with ambient air, but instead uses water that is cooled by a cooling tower or city water. This  allows a reduction in energy requirements as well as a significant reduction in the size of the chiller because of the small surface area of the water-based condenser and the absence of fans. The absence of fans also allows for significantly reduced noise levels.

Turmoil refrigerated chillers use refrigeration as the media for cooling, while Turmoil non-refrigerated chillers rely on simpler techniques such as air or water flowing over coils containing the coolant to regulate temperature. 

Applications:
  • Coolant Sumps
  • Filtration Tanks
  • Hydraulic Tanks
  • EDM
  • Fish Tanks
  • Process Tanks
  • Quench Tanks
  • Headstocks
  • Gear Boxes

OC Models for Water or Water-Based Coolants including de-ionized water, water/glycol mixtures, and water-based synthetic coolants. Evaporators are brazed, stainless steel plates. Piping and fittings are non-ferrous. Self-priming, bronze, centrifugal pumps are standard. Coolant recirculating through the cooler must be clean, otherwise specify optional In-Line Filter (-ILF) or Cleanable Evaporator (-CEV).

Closed Loop Chiller Flow Schematic
Click image for larger view.

Open-Loop coolers recirculate fluid from a remote tank, through the cooler and back to the tank. The cooler works to maintain a constant fluid temperature in the tank. The pump and evaporator are in the cooler. The tank is remote.

When the pump is energized it draws fluid from the remote tank and pumps it through the evaporator in the cooler and back to the tank. The temperature controller senses the temperature of the fluid entering the cooler and controls the refrigeration effect in the evaporator to provide the desired fluid temperature in the tank. The cooler should be installed as near as possible to the tank.


These are a few of our basic options. Click the button below to see all chiller options.

CTC: Digital Temperature Controller: Provides close temperature control (±0.5°F). Displays bot set-point and coolant temperature.

ATC: Ambient Tracking Controller. A dual input digital tempertue controller allows the coolant temperature to track ambient temperature at a constant, adjustable differential. Displays both ambient and coolant temperature.

OP: Optional Pumps. A variety of pumps are available to meet almost any flow and pressure requirement for both water and oil-based coolants.

LF: Low Flow Interlock. Prevents damage to machine on loss of flow.

HT: Temperature Fault Interlock. Indicates coolant temperature is out of range.

ILH: In-Line Heater. Warms up coolant to optimum operating termperature.

ILF: In-Line Filter Insures clean coolant.

PS: Pure System. Coolant only comes in contact with stainless steel or plastic.

Non-Copper. Oil only comes in contact with iron or stainless steel.

NRCW and NRCA: Non-Refrigerated Cooler. Uses central chilled water or ambient air instead of refrigeration. Saves space and maintenance.

W: Water-Cooled Condenser For use with tower or city water. Removes heat from the work area while saving space and maintenance.
