CHILLER TRAINING VIDEOS

Watch the Engineering Mindset Online Video Course Series on Chillers. Be sure to watch all 20 videos to gain a basic understanding on Chillers.

Chiller Basics – How they work (Part 1)

This video guides you through the basic operation of a chiller, covering the basics of a centrifugal chiller in a typical office building. After watching this video, you should be able to identify the main components and the main circuits of a chiller. You can complete a short test at the end of the video to test your knowledge.

Chiller Basics – How they work (Part 2)

In this video we take a deeper look into how a chiller works, by looking at how each part changes the temperature and pressure of the refrigerant.

Chiller – Expansion Valve

In this video we take a look at how a chillers expansion valves work, as well as discussing the 3 most common expansion valves: pilot operated thermal expansion valves, thermal expansion valves and electronic expansion valve.

Chiller – Evaporators

In this video we look inside the evaporator of a chiller to learn how it works and how it operates in a HVAC system.

Chillers – Condensers

In this video we look inside the condenser of a chiller to learn how it works and how it operates in a HVAC system.

Chiller – Centrifugal Compressor

In this video we take a detailed look at how the Centrifugal Compressor works on a chiller and why they are important.

Chiller – Cooling Capacity Control

In this video we look at how a chillers cooling capacity is controlled using vane guides.

Chiller – Controls

In this video we take a look at the controls of a typical centrifugal chiller and how they work.

Chiller – Surge

In this video we take a look what chiller surge is, what it sounds like, as well as what causes chiller surge and ways to prevent it.

Chiller – Oil lubrication and cooling

In this video we take a look at the oil lubrication system of a typical chiller, using illustrations and narrative to build your base knowledge.

How Chiller works – Design Data

This video guides you through the advanced operation of a chiller and covers the basics of a centrifugal chiller in a typical office building. By the end of this video, you should be able to identify the main components and the main circuits of a chiller.

CALCULATE Chiller cooling capacity – Cooling Load kW BTU Refrigeration Ton

This video teaches how to calculate the cooling capacity of a chiller and the cooling load, both in metric and imperial. We show how to calculate the BTU kW and refrigeration tons using different flow rates and temperatures.

Chiller Efficiency CALCULATION – COP Coefficient of performance

This video teaches you how to calculate the efficiency of a chiller, both metric and imperial units, to ensure it is running at optimal performance.

Air-Cooled Chiller – How they work, working principle, Chiller basics

This video guides you through the basic operation of a chiller, covering the basics of an air-cooled chiller in a typical office building. By the end you should be able to identify the main components and the main circuits of a chiller.

Chiller flow rate measurement and calculation, chilled and condenser water

In this video we learn how to measure the flow rate through a chiller, which can be used for chilled water and condenser water. This can be used to this calculate the cooling capacity of a chiller.

How TXV works – Thermostatic expansion valve working principle, HVAC Basics

In this video we take a look at how the thermostatic expansion valve (TXV) works in a HVAC refrigeration system and the basic working principles that allow it to meter the flow of refrigerant into the evaporator of chillers and air conditioning units.

How Cooling Towers Work

In this video we look at how a cooling tower works by looking at an overview of each main component.

Absorption Chiller, how it works – working principle

In this video we learn how an absorption chiller works, covering the basics and working principles of operation.

Chiller faults – troubleshooting

In this video we take a look at common chiller faults and how to troubleshoot them. This covers both air-cooled chillers and water-cooled chillers. Caution: Chillers are dangerous and expensive, do not attempt to repair this units without authorisation and training.

Chiller Types and Application Guide – Chiller basics, working principle

In this video we look at chiller types and refrigerant compressor cooling technology within HVAC commercial refrigeration and provide an overview guide on when and where each chiller type is used. This covers air-cooled chillers and water-cooled chillers, centrifugal compressors, turbocor compressors, screw compressors, scroll compressors, reciprocating compressors, absorption chillers. We look at both vapour compression and vapour absorption chillers.
