Certain industrial processes, such as cold storage, food and beverage manufacturing, ice rink projects, pharmaceutical formulation, and chemical processing, require water with temperatures lower than 5 degrees Celsius. If your business falls into this category, a glycol chiller is the most efficient equipment to meet your cooling needs. Glycol chillers are particularly effective in achieving extremely low temperatures and can even generate temperatures below the freezing point of water. This is possible due to the antifreeze properties of glycol, which allows the coolant to remain in a fluid state, enabling low cooling points.
Glycol chillers are categorized based on their cooling capabilities, with two common types: propylene glycol-based and ethylene glycol-based chillers. Most chillers utilize a mixture of propylene or ethylene glycol with water, typically maintaining a ratio of 60% glycol to 40% water.
Glycol chillers have come a long way and are now more efficient and reliable for modern industrial processes. These improvements are attributed to their strictly controlled production process and the rational design by reputable manufacturers. Plus, you can get them as an air-cooled or water-cooled glycol chiller from 1 KW to 3000KW, and in temperatures from -40 to 5 degrees Celsius.
Glycol chillers are among the widely used equipment in different applications. Here are a few examples:
· Wineries: Low temperatures are essential for fermentation, cooling rooms, and stabilizing cold temperatures.
· Breweries: A glycol chiller can help cool the wort, crash-cool vessels, and control fermentation. Plus, it’s useful for product storage and prepackaging.
· Ice rinks: Liquid glycol can be chilled below the water’s freezing point while being pumped through the mats beneath the surface of the ice rink. When water is sprayed on the mats, it will freeze.
