Water Cooled Chillers

Smardt-PowerPax’s water cooled Chillers are amongst the simplest yet most efficient chillers on the market in the mid size capacity range.  This is achieved through the combination of our highly efficient flooded evaporator, shell and tube condenser, integrated controls and the revolutionary Danfoss Turbocor oil free centrifugal compressor.

The simplicity of design found in the Smardt-Powerpax chiller stems from the fundamental benefits of utilising oil free, magnetic bearing centrifugal compressor technology.  As the compressors does not require oil, Smardt-PowerPax has removed oil from the equation in our chiller design.  Many of the components on traditional chiller designs are no longer required, as there is no longer any need to  regulate the location or the temperature of the oil within the system.  In addition, our electronic expansion valves, coupled with our integrated controller allows us to take full advantage of cooler weather conditions through reduced condensing pressures, resulting in even greater energy savings.

Another advantage offered by the design is a reduction in the rate of servicing.  History has shown that about 60% of all service or breakdowns on chillers are due to oil related problems, something which has been eliminated on our chillers.  Through the elimination of mechanical wear within the compressor, the requirements for servicing based on usage has also been reduced considerably.  Smardt-Powerpax’s highly efficient flooded evaporators operate using ozone friendly R134a, and they are designed for ease of cleaning and will not suffer from energy robbing performance degradation due to oil contamination as seen in other chillers.

All condensers are of cleanable shell and tube type, designed for minimum condensing temperatures, and along with our evaporator design, come with ASME or AS1210 approval. We offer a choice of construction materials such as SS316 or cupro nickel and can custom design chillers when required.
