THERMAL MANAGEMENT Q&A
Q: HOW DO I KEEP MY PRODUCT COOL?
A: If your product is in an environment that is too warm, using a chiller system will keep it cool.
Q: WHAT SIZE OF CHILLER DO I NEED?
A; The right size chiller will do wonders in keeping your product cool. However, you don’t want to get one that doesn’t meet your cooling capacity requirements. Determining the proper size of chiller involves knowing your needs and using our formula to find what size is right for you.

Q: HOW DOES A CHILLER SYSTEM WORK?
A: Industrial chillers cool process fluids. Process fluids (typically water or a water/glycol mix) are used to cool machinery, equipment, food, etc. The process fluid absorbs heat from what is being cooled and then goes through the chiller where the heat is removed from the process fluid and transferred to the ambient air.
Q: WHAT IS GLYCOL. AND HOW MUCH DO I NEED IN MY COOLANT?
A; Glycol is an interesting chemical, as it doesn’t lower the freezing point of water that much alone. Combined with water, however, it can reduce the freezing point well below 0°F. Glycol manufacturers are required to include a chart with glycol level recommendations with their product, which you can use to determine how much you need.
Q: WHAT IF I NEED TO JUST LOWER THE TEMPERATURE OF MY PRODUCT, VERSUS KEEPING IT AT A STABLE TEMPERATURE?
A: North Slope Chillers’ can do both of those things. Using our Beacon Control System, nearly every variable of the cooling process is at your command. Click here to see which Beacon Control System works for your product. coil is dropped directly into the fluid being cooled. Refrigerant can be pumed through the coil and use the coil as an evaporator or a water glycol mix can be pumped through the coil.
