A low Global Warming Potential (GWP) chiller refers to a type of cooling system that uses refrigerants with significantly lower GWP compared to traditional refrigerants like hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs). GWP is a measure of the greenhouse gas potential of a substance relative to carbon dioxide (CO2), which has a GWP of 1.

To mitigate the environmental impact of refrigerants, especially those with high GWP, many industries and manufacturers are transitioning towards low GWP alternatives.

It's important to note that the choice of a low GWP chiller depends on various factors, including the specific cooling requirements, application, safety considerations, and regulations in a particular region. Consulting with HVAC professionals or chiller manufacturers can provide more specific guidance on selecting the most suitable low GWP chiller for a given situation.

An air-cooled chiller is a type of cooling system used to remove heat from a process or space by utilising ambient air as the cooling medium. It is commonly employed in commercial and industrial applications where water availability or cost prohibits the use of water-cooled chillers.

The basic principle behind an air-cooled chiller involves the circulation of a refrigerant through a closed loop system. The chiller unit consists of various components such as compressors, condensers, expansion valves, and evaporators. These components work together to transfer heat from the process or space to be cooled to the surrounding air.
