Lytron Inc., Woburn, Mass., launched a recirculating chiller selector tool on its web site, www.lytron.com. Based on user input of heat load, the program selects up to five recirculating chillers that will work for the application. The selection process can be further refined by inputting the setpoint temperature, ambient temperature, desired flow rate or power configuration. The user then configures the chiller by selecting a pump, controller package and options. The tool provides pump curves and complete descriptions of the controller packages and upgrade options.
