The absorption chillers save energy. They cool the environment by using the heat from various sources. These chillers usually get energy from natural gas, steam or waste heat. All these forms of energy are very cheap so the absorption chillers are money saving. They are also environment friendly. They have replaced the conventional compressors that use chemicals which are dangerous for our earth. Unlike other chillers, they do not use chlorofluorocarbon because it is very dangerous for the ozone layer.
Types Of Absorption Chillers
Absorption chillers have three main types named as single effect, double effect and triple effect chillers. In single effect chillers, the fluid moves through four main parts; evaporator, absorber, generator and condenser. The double effect absorption chillers are more efficient than single effect chillers. They consist of two condensers and two generators that help them to cool large areas. The triple effect chillers use latest technology and are more efficient then other chillers. They are still under process but the scientists say that they will be the great revolution in the absorption technology.
Advantages Of Absorption Chillers
They are environment friendly and safe to use as they do not contain CFC (chlorofluorocarbon) and HCFC (hydro chlorofluorocarbon). Unlike conventional chillers, they do not create any noise. They perform function silently. Moreover they do not vibrate. They are easy to maintain and heir repair charges are also very less. They are more reliable as compared to other chillers and they have lower pressure systems which don’t have any large rotating parts. They can be used to cool the home, offices and other buildings at a lower rate. The statistics show that these chillers are 50% more efficient as compared to other chillers available in the market. They are available in a reasonable cost. The actual cost of these chillers depends on the building type, equipment, climate, utility rate, and scalar ratio.
