cooling load sizingCooling Load Sizing

To size your production machine cooling load use the following information: Calculate the total lbs/hour of material your machine uses and divide it by the lbs/ton listed below for your specific process. This will give you the tons of cooling required at 50° F leaving water temperature.

When operating below 50° F you must decrease the rated chiller cooling capacity by 2% for every one degree F you operate below 50° F.

To correct for 45° F operation you would divide the chiller rated cooling load by 0.9. See calculation: 100% - (2% x 5° F below 50° F) = 90% or 0.9.

 

INJECTION MOLDING = 1 LBS/TON

EXTRUSION = 1 LBS/TON

HOT RUNNER MOLDS convert heater watts to btu's and divide by 2. (watts x 3.414 divide by 24,000 Btu's)

MOTOR COOLING LOAD FOR PORTABLE CHILLERS

 

 

Hydraulic cooling:

8 hp = 1 ton

Vacuum pumps:

8 hp = 1 ton

Air compressors:

8 hp = 1 ton (internal oil cooling).

 

8 hp = 1 ton (after cooler cooling).

Chilled water flow rate is 2.4 gpm/ton.

 

Chiller ton is 12,000 Btu's

 

Chiller operating temperature range with water is from 45° F. to 60° F. leaving water temperature.

Chiller operating temperature range with glycol/water is from 25 F. to 45° F. leaving water temperature.
