Chillers are industrial refrigerating systems used to cool chambers where food or other products are stored at near-freezing temperatures. The word "chillers" also refers to units used to cool entire buildings.
A chiller works on the same principle as an air conditioner. When a gas is compressed into a liquid, it warms up and when it is released into a larger chamber, it cools off. The warm liquid media is compressed outside of the chamber and the chilled gas is released into larger tubes inside the area to be cooled.
These machines are expensive investments, and to keep them working in top shape, the parts should be those designed to fit the original equipment. For example, anyone with a McQuay chiller should look for a McQuay chiller part. As a subsidiary of Daikin industries, they are the second largest manufacturer of chillers and parts in the world.
A McQuay chiller part can be as simple as an oil filter or as large as an entire compressor. Other McQuay chiller parts include: control boards, sensors, thrust bearings and oil pumps.
The company produces many brands of chillers such as Remington, Singer, Perfex, and HermanNelson. Their latest brand is Magnitude, a popular line of large, but energy-efficient, chillers. Parts purchased under any of these brand names are also McQuay chiller parts.
Many distributors across the nation offer McQuay chiller parts for sale. Some have certified technicians on hand who are capable of repairing or upgrading the chiller system properly.
Another important brand in the chiller industry is Copeland. A subsidiary of Emerson Electric, Copeland is one of the best known manufacturers of industrial compressors in the heating, ventilation, and air-conditioning business. Compressors are the heart of any air-conditioning system and Semi-hermetic compressors are regarded as the most reliable.
In home air-conditioning systems, compressors are hermetically sealed. This is highly efficient in terms of energy use, but it means that the compressor is not repairable and must be replaced. Industrial compressors are large and expensive. It is imperative that they can be opened for maintenance and repair.
Semi-hermetic compressors are fairly energy-efficient, very cost-effective and easy to maintain. They are also designed to work with a broad range of refrigerants, including the newer, more environmentally-friendly liquids that are currently under development. These compressors are also much quieter than older models.
Semi-hermetic compressors are part of a line of reciprocating compressors that are produced by the company. A reciprocating compressor has a piston much like an automobile engine. The piston alternately pushes or compresses the refrigerating media and then creates a vacuum as it draws back through a cylinder equipped with discharge and vacuum valves.
When Semi-hermetic compressors need to be repaired, replacement parts should be the same brand. Once an investment has been made for top-of-the-line equipment like Copeland 6D semi-hermetic compressors, it is important that they be maintained properly with the correct parts.
