Chillers are usually categorized by the type of compression technology they use. All chillers perform the same basic functions, but the way that they go about cooling makes a difference in their applications and the way that they are serviced.
How Centrifugal Chillers Work
Most chillers that utilize centrifugal compressors are water cooled chillers. It is exceedingly rare that you would find an air-cooled chiller that uses a centrifugal compressor. A centrifugal chiller is composed of either one or two rotating impellers These compress the refrigerant and force the refrigerant through the chiller system. Centrifugal chillers are an industry favorite because they have very few moving parts which makes them more reliable and easier to repair should something go wrong.
