Chillers

Regulatory Language for State Equipment Standards

Chiller means a factory-made and prefabricated assembly (not necessarily shipped as one package) of one or more compressors, condensers and evaporators, with interconnections and accessories, designed for the purpose of cooling water. It is a machine specifically designed to make use of a vapor compression refrigeration cycle to remove heat from water and reject the heat to a cooling medium, usually air or water. The refrigerant condenser may or may not be an integral part of the package.

The minimum efficiency standards for water cooled chillers, corresponding to the compressor type and capacity, shall be the levels set forth in Table 5.18 determined in accordance with the test procedures set forth in ARI Standard 550/590 (see section 506.6 of this Part).

The minimum efficiency standards for air-cooled chillers, corresponding to the compressor type and capacity, shall be the levels set forth in Table 5.19 determined in accordance with the test procedures set forth in ARI Standard 550/590 as referenced in section 506.6 of this Part.
