Hoffer Turbine Flow Meters used in Chiller Systems for Process Cooling

Hoffer turbine flow meters are often incorporated in the design of chiller systems for fluid control and have proven to be a great fit for these types of chiller applications. Many industries use chillers for their daily operations to increase production and improve quality.

Industrial water chillers are used in a variety of applications where chilled water or liquid is circulated through process equipment. Commonly used to cool products and machinery, water chillers are used in a multitude of different applications including injection molding, tool and die cutting, food and beverage, pharmaceutical, hydrogen fueling, aerospace, chemicals, lasers, semi-conductors and more.

The function of an industrial chiller is to move heat from one location (commonly the process equipment or product) to another place such as the air outside the manufacturing facility. It is very common to use water or a water/glycol solution to transfer the heat to and from the chiller which may require the process chiller to have a reservoir and pumping system. Regardless of your industry and process, making sure that you have sufficient cooling is critical to productivity and cost savings. The process flow is an important part of these cooling systems.

Hoffer Flow Controls supplies liquid turbine flowmeters for process flow measurement to a well know Chiller manufacturer located in CA on an OEM basis. This company produces process cooling chiller systems, many customized for the needs of the customer, for liquid chilling applications providing industrial temperature control solutions.

Flow meters and pressure transducers are used in the design of the chillers to provide precise fluid flow control and temperature control. Specifically this California chiller manufacturer incorporates Hoffer flow meters MODEL HO1/2X1/2A-1.25-9.5-BP-1M-NPT-IND-X ½” Industrial *STAR* Series turbine flowmeters into their chiller systems to perform liquid flow measurement.

The Hoffer Industrial Star Series turbine flowmeters provide high accuracy flow measurement with NPT style end fittings and economical and dependable service with timely deliveries. Available with ceramic, hybrid stainless steel ball bearings, the STAR Series is a good fit for this clean liquid application where precise fluid control is important. Expert use of flowmeters in this application along with pressure transducers, pulse width modulated valves and variable frequency drives allow for precise temperature and fluid flow control.

Chiller applications as described above are very good applications for Hoffer Turbine Flow Meters. The product quality, flow accuracy and the cost-effectiveness of Hoffer turbine flow meters are the major considerations for using them for this application.
