Size Your System

To help you size a Rite-Temp Chiller for your process heat load, we have provided you with a program that will calculate the right chiller for your needs. To use our calculator, you need to determine two things:


 

1.

You need to know the amount of cooling water flow used per minute in gallons (GPM). To calculate this you can use a water flow meter or place a one gallon bucket into the flow of your cooling water (leaving the process). Record the time it takes to fill the bucket, then divide the results into 60. The results you obtain represent your cooling water flow in gallons per minute (GPM).

Gallons per Minute    *Required

   
2.

You need to know the difference is the temperature change (heat rise). This is the difference in the cooling water temperature entering the heat load (process) and the cooling water temperature leaving the process. To calculate your temperature change, place a thermometer directly in the flow of water going to your current process for one minute and record the results. Then place a thermometer directly in the flow of water coming from your current process for one minute and record the results. Take the difference of the two results. This result is your temperature change.

Although not necessary to size a chiller, we have also provided a way for you to calculate savings and payback when using a Rite-Temp closed chiller systems. You will need to provide the following information.

Hours of Operation  
Current Electric Rate    US $
Current Water Rate   US $ Per

It is very important that you do not guess at any of the numbers you are providing.  A difference of just one degree in temperature could give you the wrong system.  If you are unsure, please contact us at 1(800) 462-3120 or email bchaffee@ritetemp.com
