What is Chiller Monitoring?
The chiller works on the compression principle and absorption of vapor and mechanical refrigeration system by providing the flow of coolant after that coolant is pumped which helps in extracting the heat. Basically, Chiller is one of the most critical systems, costly, and consumes lots of energy too. So, it becomes important to know if the chiller is running effectively or not at less than its peak performance. Therefore, the chiller monitoring system is needed to have the benefits.
Chillers have become an essential Component of a wide variety of commercial facilities, industrial and manufacturing plants. Chillers are basically used to transfer the heat from internal surroundings to external surroundings to bring down the temperature of a building.
Users can get the Run Hours, real-time alerts, etc. HVAC is a major contributor to the maintenance and energy-related operating expenses of the industry. By installing chiller monitoring system issues can be detected and solved on a real-time basis.
As the process undergoes a heat transfer mechanism, the evaporation of refrigerant takes place changing from liquid with a low pressure into vapor, and in this process, the temperature reduces simultaneously. HVAC Chiller monitoring system has become more powerful and is used to control chiller systems more efficiently than previously possible.
Basic chiller systems have multiple inputs and outputs that can connect through communication protocols. Megatronics industrial automation chiller monitoring system, includes algorithms that read information through the operation of the chiller, monitor system parameters, and control various functions such as fans, compressor, loading, and expansion values to achieve the required set point or cycling on or off and hence saves energy.
Now with industrial automation systems, you can connect the chiller to the ‘cloud’. After that raw information that is available at chillers is transmitted through the wireless networks or LAN to the cloud server where it is transformed into meaningful information that gives insights into the efficiency, temperature, and pressure, etc.
Data streamed from equipment to cloud, advanced analytics, and remote monitoring are a few of the technology parts that are changing the chiller's management and making it more reliable. With new insights into the efficiency and other parameters, it can result in fewer disruptions, reduced downtime, and longer equipment life.
With the continuous cloud data recorded multiple team persons access and suggest the necessary actions on the energy savings. With Online monitoring, web dashboards, SMS and email notifications, and many other features it becomes easier to understand the issues and solve the problems.
Different types of chillers are connected through the network devices which send the data on the FDM cloud server monitoring through which the information is transformed and presented in the forms of reports and dashboards to the users.
The entire process is communicated through the various communication protocols and helps users get the results in a more refined way. Chiller condition monitoring involves integrating the chiller control with gateways & sending the live data to the cloud. Rules and alerts can be set on the parameters which trigger emails or SMS or even displays to indicate the normal operating condition of chillers is breached.
Water and air chillers are set up through which data is transmitted via a cloud management system. With patterns identified, upward or downward trends can lead to identifying the specific points where the equipment performance is started and help in making the corrective decisions.
