Fouling in heat exchangers: reduce deposit accumulation

Heat exchangers are totally necessary in the refrigeration cycle: as shown in the diagram below, two out of the four basic steps in the refrigerant cycle are heat exchangers! Their operation affects greatly to the overall plant efficiency, so their maintenance is very important. Heat exchangers, like pressure vessels, are classified as static equipment as they don’t have any moving parts. They don’t require too much maintenance, but it is important to make visual inspections to detect leaks or corrosion and control its efficiency as it can decrease with time due to fouling.

Screw compressor working principle and use in District Cooling

The chiller plant is one of the major systems of a district cooling plant. Others are the distribution network and the consumer system. The compressor, which is the focus of this post, is a critical component of a chiller plant. ARANER is an experienced provider of District Cooling solutions. We can be trusted with help in choosing the right compressor type for a district cooling system. We will start with the basic screw compressor working principle. The working principle of centrifugal compressor can be explained in a future publication. The compressor comes with both male and female rotors that can either drive each other or rely on a timing gear.
