# Chillers

## Chillers

(OP)
Any advice on chillers is appreciated, and welcome. Fluid calcs and rules of thumb are valuable to me.

### RE: Chillers

Hello, Garveydai

Your question could be a simple or/and a complex one!
In trying to give you an answer, it seems, that you want to know what's inside the box, I mean the equipment engineering, itself. If it's that so, first, prepare yourself, for learning something more about thermodynamics, fluidmechanics and some heat-transfer basics, before you enter in some specialized reading about chillers.
Of course, you can go up-side-down, but you should have a very good balance, in order not to get lost, and not having more doubts, than at the beginning of the process.
Any way, some easy manuals from ASHRAE (take a look to the netsite), Air Conditioning Manual by CARRIER Int. Ltd or Refrigeration & Air Conditioning, by W.F.Stoecker and J.W.Jones (ed, McGraw-Hill) will give you a lot of help.
Good luck and work!

### RE: Chillers

Hello Garveydai,

I found the interesting Website for calculating a chiller size. If you know temperature of liquid entering chiller, temperature of liquid leaving chiller, desire flow rate and weight of 1 liter of liquid, you can get the chiller size.
I think " http://www.filtrinemfg.com/size.htm" can solve your problem.
