Air conditioning chillers energy efficiency optimization

Achieving energy efficiency in water-cooled chillers

Conservation of optimal heat transfer in water-cooled chillers is vital for the efficient operation of the chiller’s compressor. Accumulation of as little as 0.3 mm of dirt in the AC condenser tubes increases the compressors’ energy consumption by 10% or more and affects performance.

Benefits of maintaining clean chiller condenser tubes:

  • Maintain a constant level of condensate vacuum, conserving the Delta P driving the compressor efficiency.
  • Prevent increased electricity consumption of the compressor.
  • Conserve chiller cooling capacity otherwise reduced by poor compressor efficiency.


ATCS-HVAC promotes optimal chiller efficiency by maintaining the condenser tubes free of dirt and fouling.
