Manufacturers Monthly discover Thermo-fisherman new Thermo Scientific air coolers, an alternative source of cold water to improve efficiency and return on investment for the manufacturer.
No industrial process, equipment or engine is 100% efficient, with heat being the most common by-product of these inefficiencies. If this heat is not removed, it will build up over time, resulting in reduced production times, equipment downtime and even premature equipment failure. It is necessary to integrate cooling into the design of the treatment system to avoid these problems.
Laboratories and clinical environments often require an abundant source of cold water to cool samples. Over the years, relying on a predictable supply of fresh water for laboratory cooling has become increasingly unpopular. The increasing cost of water and wastewater has made the search for an alternative source of cooling essential. Chillers are the answer, combining a great resource-saving solution by reducing water consumption to zero with an incredibly short return on investment.
Chillers, however, are not only of interest in terms of cost and water savings, but also because they offer many technological advantages. With lower operating temperatures and better efficiency, chillers achieve higher recovery rates when condensing gases. Unlike tap water cooling, chillers can be set to the desired target temperature, ranging from -20 Â° C to + 40 Â° C. The constant pressure and constant flow cancel out pressure drops having a positive effect on application conditions, allowing reproducibility of research results.
Recirculating chillers provide a constant and reliable source of temperature controlled fluid for cooling in laboratory, clinical or industrial applications. They provide better temperature stability and accuracy and protect valuable process equipment, reduce associated maintenance costs, and enable efficient use of plant resources.
These coolers typically use water or an ethylene glycol / water mixture, which removes heat from a process and returns it to the cooler. However, the coolers themselves generate heat from the fan motor, compressor, pump, and system electronics, which is then released into the room. To preserve the cooling capacity of the chiller, the ambient temperature must be maintained. Precise determination of the amount of heat released allows users to select the most suitable chiller, whether air cooled or water cooled.
Air-cooled chillers do not require water sources as they absorb the thermal load of the application (process heat) and release it to the environment, along with any heat generated by the chiller itself. Due to the amount of heat released, it is necessary to ensure that the heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) system in the room is sized accordingly. Water-cooled chillers remove heat from the process using a water source, and most of the heat generated by the circulating water pump and compressor is added to that water. The remaining heat released into the room is significantly less than that of an air-cooled chiller.

The Thermo Scientific ThermoFlex platform was developed with input from customers, from concept to design. These low noise recirculating coolers promote a safe and stress free environment in your critical application labs. These low noise models are designed to remain quiet over the entire chiller operating range while maintaining precise temperature control.
The Thermo Scientific ThermoChill chiller series is a compact line of refrigerated recirculators offering cooling capacities up to 2000 watts. Innovative design features such as minimized plumbing connections and an integrated full-flow fluid strainer maximize product reliability.
Simply put, coolers are faster and more efficient than other equipment. Instead of managing cooling substances by hand and controlling temperatures manually, laboratory users can rely on the automated functions of air or water coolers to manage the entire cooling process. And due to limited human involvement, their use in a lab can dramatically increase lab safety.
