Cooling towers tons pairs the water-cooled chiller tons and the water-cooled condenser tons.
Chiller Refrigeration Tons
The technique of cooling is known as refrigeration. Refrigeration or cooling capacity might be measured in tons.
A water-chiller refrigeration ton is defined as:
- 1 Refrigeration Ton (RT) = 1TONScond= 12000 Btu/h= 200Btu/min = 3025.9 ok Calories/h = 12661 kJ/h = 3.517 kW
- 1 kW = zero.2843 Refrigeration Ton (RT)
A ton is the amount of heat removed by an air conditioning system that would melt 1 ton(2000 lbs.)of ice in 24 hours. The heat required to melt 1 lb of ice at 32 oF to water is 144 Btu.
1 Ton Refrigeration = (2000 lb) (144 Btu/lb) / (24 hr)
= 12000 Btu/hr
Converting between Btu/h and Tons of Refrigeration
Cooling Tower Tons
A cooling tower ton is outlined as:
1 cooling tower ton = 1 TONSevap = 1 TONScondx 1.25 =15000Btu/h = 3782 kCalories/h = 15826 kJ/h = 4.396 kW
The equivalent ton on the cooling tower aspect really rejects about 15000 Btu/h due to the heat-equivalent of the power needed to drive the chiller’s compressor. This equivalent ton is defined because the heat rejection in cooling three U.S.
