Which is better screw or scroll chiller?

Apr 24, 2024

What is screw chiller?

A Screw chiller is an industrial chiller using a semi-hermetic screw type compressor. Including air cooled screw chiller and water cooled screw chiller. Screw chiller models generally range from 30HP to 300HP or even larger. Screw chiller usually use single compressor or double or four compressors. Our Screw chillers mainly use the following brands: Hanbell, Bitzer, or Refcomp.

What is scroll chiller ?

A scroll chiller is an industrial chiller using hermetic scroll type compressor. Also the sroll chillers including air cooled scroll chillers and water cooled scroll chillers. Scroll chiller models usually range from 3HP to 100HP. The Scroll types compressors brands we use are: Copeland, Danfoss, Daikin, Panasonic. Compressors qty optional.

Both screw and scroll chillers have their advantages are suitable for different applications. Here are some key differences between the two:

Design: A screw chiller uses a rotary screw compressor, while a scroll chiller uses scroll compressors. The screw compressor is typically more robust and suitable for larger capacity applications, while the scroll compressor is more compact and suitable for smaller to medium-sized applications.

Efficiency: Screw chillers generally have higher efficiency compared to scroll chillers, especially at higher loads. They can provide better part-load performance and energy savings.

Noise: Scroll chillers are known for their low noise operation, making them suitable for noise-sensitive environments. Screw chillers may produce higher noise levels, although noise reduction measures can be implemented.

Capacity: Screw chillers are available in larger capacity ranges, making them suitable for industrial applications with higher cooling demands. Scroll chillers are generally used for smaller to medium-sized applications.

Reliability: Both screw and scroll chillers are reliable, but the simplicity of scroll chiller design often results in fewer moving parts and potentially higher reliability.

So when you don’t know how to chose a right chiller for your water cooling system.It is important to consider the specific requirements of your application, such as cooling capacity, efficiency, noise level, and cost, when choosing between screw and scroll chillers.
