Andrews Chiller Hire

How do chillers work and which unit is best for me?

Finding a temporary cooling solution can be a daunting challenge, particularly if your requirement is of an urgent nature. With this in mind, the team at Andrews Chillers have created a short video that explains the functionality of chillers and how to guarantee the perfect outcome for your cooling application.

Using sample scenarios, the animation demonstrates the specific process that a unit goes through to provide the cooling for your requirement.

The aim of the video is to give our customers a better understanding of the chiller units we offer and explain how they apply to different environments. The video shows how you can overcome your cooling challenges while discussing the various types of cooling. These include comfort cooling, high capacity cooling and process cooling.

With comfort cooling in particular, it is important to understand that this type of cooling is used to regulate the temperature and create a comfortable environment for people within a specific area. This type of chiller is normally used in hospitals and hotels in addition to offices and conference rooms. These sectors require an accurate temperature control as a system failure can directly influence the satisfaction of building occupants.
