New Variable Speed Chillers’ Dewpoint Monitoring Prevents Damaging Moisture Condensation

Dew Point Monitoring on Chiller HMI

Industrial processes that require chillers for thermal management can now incorporate ambient dew point data as a process control variable. Delta T Systems’ new variable speed chiller control system is designed to monitor a production area’s ambient dew point; if a dew point increases above the process control temperature, the controller automatically adjusts the process setpoint to track with the dew point. Similarly, if the dew point decreases in a production area, the controller setpoint is adjusted downward – which often allows an increase in production rates. With this industry leading sensing capability, Delta T Systems is the only process chiller manufacturer to control all aspects of water cooled applications.

The major benefit of automated dew point/setpoint process control is condensation prevention. When process temperature is kept above an ambient dew point, no condensation occurs. Conversely, when it is below, potentially damaging condensation can occur. By preventing condensation, Delta T Systems proprietary controller will help decrease production equipment and subsystem damage or catastrophic failure.

Automatic process dew point/setpoint tracking and adjustment also decreases scrap rates, increases the strength and appearance of polymer based products and helps protect optical surfaces in lasers. It can also help eliminate unsanitary conditions in food and pharmaceutical products. All of these issues can result from water condensation coming into contact with parts or process based products such as food or pharmaceutical products.
