The correct way to add antifreeze to the chiller

In cold winter, in order to protect the normal operation of the chiller, we need to add antifreeze to the chiller. This is a very important step because if the chiller is not adequately protected in a cold environment, the cooling pipes may be affected by freezing, causing the equipment to malfunction. Therefore, when adding antifreeze, which points should everyone pay attention to.

Firstly, it is crucial to choose a suitable antifreeze solution. We should choose antifreeze with appropriate freezing point reduction and thermal conductivity. This can ensure that in extremely cold weather, the antifreeze can maintain its fluidity and will not block the cooling pipeline due to freezing. At the same time, antifreeze with high thermal conductivity can also ensure cooling effect while preventing the chiller from overheating.

Secondly, before adding antifreeze, we need to thoroughly clean the chiller. Because there may be some impurities and dirt left in the chiller, these substances may have adverse effects on the performance of the antifreeze. Therefore, it is important to ensure that the inside of the chiller is clean and free from contamination to ensure that the antifreeze can operate normally. In addition, it is necessary to drain the water from the chiller to avoid affecting the concentration of antifreeze and the ability to reduce freezing point.

When adding antifreeze, we need to determine the dosage based on the capacity and usage environment of the chiller. Generally speaking, we can add appropriate antifreeze according to the user manual of the chiller. Adding too little may result in insufficient protection of the cooling system, thereby affecting the lifespan and effectiveness of the equipment; Adding too much may lead to a decrease in cooling effect or other unstable factors. Therefore, we need to control the appropriate amount of addition to ensure that the concentration of antifreeze is within the normal range.

Then, after adding antifreeze, we need to conduct a comprehensive inspection of the chiller. Ensure that all connecting pipes are tight and leak free to prevent leakage of antifreeze. In addition, we should also pay attention to the service life of antifreeze and regularly replace it to ensure its normal operation.

Overall, adding antifreeze is an important measure for protecting the chiller. We need to choose a suitable antifreeze to ensure that the chiller is clean and pollution-free, maintain an appropriate level of addition, and regularly check and replace the antifreeze. Only in this way can we ensure the normal operation of the chiller in the harsh winter and provide reliable cooling support for our lives and work.
