## What temperature should a chiller run at?

Generally, temperatures of between 45 and 50 degrees are suitable for cooling equipment. Pharmaceutical uses include use of chilled water in manufacturing and cool storage. Usually, 35 to 46 degrees is the recommended temperature for refrigeration during transport and storage of most cold-chain medications.

What is the condensing temperature of R134a?

That fact explains why compressor manufacturers limit the condensing temperature for R407C to around 145–150°F (60°C–65°C) whereas for R134a compressors, the top limit for condensing temperature is 158–175°F (70–80°C) for air condi- tioning applications.

What is the normal evaporator approach temperature?

Evaporator approach can be used to evaluate the refrigerant charge. In a 1 pass evaporator, approach should be 10° to 14°. In a 2 pass evaporator, approach should be 7° to 10°. In a 3 pass evaporator, approach should be 3° to 6°.

### How do you find the approach temperature on a chiller?

Condenser approach temperature is simply defined as the difference between the condenser liquid refrigerant temperature and the outlet condenser water temperature. The closer these temperatures are to each other, the more efficient the heat transfer.

What temperature should I set my glycol chiller?

28-30° F
Different applications call for different temperatures, but generally, most breweries set their glycol chiller temperatures at 28-30° F, while wineries typically set theirs at 30-35°F.

What are normal pressures for 134a?

The normal running pressure that 134a has ranged between 22 and 57 psi.

#### Why is evaporator temperature high?

A high Evaporator Approach could be an indication of a loss of refrigerant, or an unbalanced refrigerant distribution in the chiller due to a faulty level sensor, or expansion valve, or a controls issue.

What causes low evaporator temperature on a chiller?

Low evaporator pressure: Low evaporator pressure is caused by the compressor being starved of refrigerant. The compressor is trying to draw refrigerant into its cylinders, but there isn’t enough refrigerant to satisfy it. The entire low side of the system will experience low pressure.

What is small temperature difference in chiller?

The small difference is called “the approach” by many. It compares the temperature of the saturated refrigerant with the leaving water temperature. In most cases, a current York chiller should have a small temperature difference of no greater than 3*F at FULL load.

## What does Delta temperature mean?

The term Delta T (ΔT) is in science, the difference of temperatures between two measuring points. The temperature differs either in time and/or position. We at Merus use it for example, to measure the efficiency of a heat exchanger.

What should the glycol be set at?

What temperature should I set the glycol chiller to? For alcoholic beverages, your chiller should be set to 26-28 degrees (F). For non-alcoholic beverages, we recommend setting it at a slightly warmer temperature to prevent your drinks from freezing in the lines.
