Reciprocating Chillers are typically applied in single and multiple units to provide chilled water for air conditioning units in small to medium-sized buildings using central system designs. Reciprocating chillers work in a similar fashion to all other chiller systems but they are designed with a different type of compression technology.
How Reciprocating Chillers Work
Reciprocating chillers can be used in either air or water-cooled systems. They have recently become much less common as they utilize older technology and produce too much noise for some applications. Reciprocating compressors use a piston and chamber in order to deliver a small amount of refrigerant at very high pressure. Reciprocating chillers are reliable enough for even extreme tropical environments and are best suited for small to medium cooling loads.
