Industry experts note that starting with process-specific information is the most important first step when selecting a chiller. Other factors to consider when selecting a chiller include:

  • Required fluid temperatures and flow rate.
  • Ambient temperature.
  • Chiller load (constant or fluctuating load).
  • Site conditions that affect chiller use or selection.
  • Available site power.
  • Special fluid requirements.

Process Cooling’s Cooling Capabilities Chart on Portable Chillers offers a side-by-side comparison of portable chiller manufacturers. For the purpose of this comparison, a portable chiller is defined as one that does not need to be hard-wired, can be moved with human power (rather than equipment) and generally has less than 5 tons of cooling capacity.
