Delta T Systems announced a new efficient design in its line of industrial process chillers. The Delta T Systems chiller with the variable speed compressor operates effectively between 10 percent and 100 percent 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, according to the company.
The new design applies variable speed “green” compressor technology from the HVAC industry to produce up to 50 percent energy savings over traditional hot gas bypass regulation. The energy cost savings can pay for the chiller investment in less than 3 years, the company said.
The chiller control allows for cloud-based remote management with full featured operational data sets, including suction and discharge temperatures and pressures, water temperatures and pressures, tank level, and many other sensor inputs.
The data sets are logged, and alarms can be transmitted in real time to allow complete viewing and operational control via PLC, PC, tablet, or phone. In addition, the chiller offers other standard communication protocols, including Modbus and Ethernet.
The unit’s enhanced performance benefits from controls that can regulate temperature to within 0.5°F. Other features include electronic expansion valve technology with high accuracy metering to deliver precise refrigerant flow and variable speed condenser fans.
The chiller has been designed from the ground up to offer oversized stainless steel brazed plate evaporators that reduce energy demand, as well as microchannel aluminum condenser coils that eliminate galvanic corrosion.
Safeguarding production output and eliminating downtime are key priorities in all manufacturing processes. Delta T Systems’ adaptive controls insure that the chiller system will continue to operate in the event of a problem, and it will not shut down completely. The process can continue to operate without suffering any downtime and lost production until the root cause of a problem is identified and dealt with, according to the company.
Delta T Systems, located in Richfield, WI, manufactures water and oil temperature control equipment, as well as portable air and water chillers.
