Choosing an industrial chiller can be a difficult decision. There are many companies that manufacture these cooling systems, and they all offer different features. So how do you know which one to choose? As with any big purchase, it is important to have your needs in mind before making the choice.

This blog post will help you learn about some of the factors that affect chiller selection so that you can decide what is best for your particular situation.

Do Your Research

When researching different chiller manufacturers, you will find that each company offers a wide range of options. However, the things to pay attention to are not always readily apparent until after doing some research on your own.

There are three main factors that affect cooling performance:

-The amount of water flow through the system

-Energy used by the system

-Condenser water temperature

The first factor is self explanatory. The more water flow there is, the better it can remove heat from your industrial space. Energy usage and condenser water temperatures impact how well a chiller does its job of removing heat. You will want to research the products of each manufacturer in order to find which ones best fit your needs.

When researching different chillers, it is important to look at performance in terms of energy usage and water flow. You may also want to consider speaking with manufacturers directly to learn about their products. By doing your research beforehand, you can ensure that your decision is an informed one.

Find A Manufacturer

If you know that a specific company makes cooling systems that suits your business, then this is probably an easy choice for you. You can always purchase from them and avoid having to do additional research on other companies’ offerings.

However, if you are unsure about which manufacturer to choose, it may be helpful to look at reviews of industrial chillers. This will give you a general idea of the quality and performance of different brands.

Once you have narrowed down your choices to a few manufacturers, it is important to contact them directly and ask for product quotes. Each one may offer different prices and features, so it is important to speak with them directly.

Simulate the Savings

Before you make a purchase from any manufacturer, be sure that you have done your homework on the products they offer. You want to make sure that the chiller you’re purchasing is the very best one for your business, machines, buildings, and product. 

To simulate the savings you would see from a chiller, use online calculators. Most manufacturers will have one on their website where you can find out how much money your business could save by installing an industrial chiller.

See One In Action

Ask the manufacturer you chose to see if you could view their chillers perform for yourself. At the very least, make sure they have informational videos, booklets, or classes that can help train your engineers. It is important to know exactly what the chiller looks like and how it works before you purchase it.

It can be difficult to choose an industrial chiller, but by doing your research beforehand, narrowing down your options based on price, performance levels, quality of equipment offered, features included in each model/brand, speaking with representatives from different companies directly, and by simulating the savings, you will be able to make an informed decision.


Choosing an industrial chiller can be a daunting task, but by following these simple steps, you can make sure that you are getting the best product for your needs. 

Remember to research different brands and models to find the one that fits your specific requirements, and don’t forget to ask the manufacturer questions about their products before making a purchase.
