Abstract : Within the Department of Defense (DOD) chillers are used for a variety of applications. Industrial, commercial, and residential buildings use chillers for industrial process cooling, computer system cooling, as well as for human comfort/space cooling. This TechData Sheet covers commercial comfort cooling applications in the 30- to 1500-ton range. The purpose of this TechData Sheet is to assist activity personnel in making energy conscious decisions when selecting a chiller for their application. Variables affecting the chiller selection include: equipment cost, installation cost, chiller efficiency, size, utility availability, utility costs, and location constraints. These variables must be considered together when selecting the appropriate chiller.
