FT63 Laboratory Process Chiller


FT63 Laboratory Process Chiller

The FT63 is a recirculating process chiller, providing a continuous supply of chilled liquid to serve as the cooling fluid when used with an Armfield miniature-scale processing unit. It is particularly suitable for use with an Armfield FT174XTS, FT174X and FT102X//LT sysems.



The FT63 contains a reservoir of cooled fluid, which is pumped through the external process to be cooled (eg heat exchanger system).

The cooling fluid can be water or a mixture of glycol and water depending on the output temperature required. This fluid is  cooled by the integral refrigeration system. A high-pressure pump is used to pump the fluid through the process.  A bypass valve facility enables the fluid to be recirculated independently of the process conditions.

Compressor Reciprocating hermetically sealed compressor  with a refrigerant cooled motor. Evaporator Packaged coil type, made of copper tubes  and aluminium fins. Condenser Single air-cooled condenser manufactured from aluminium  fins mechanically bonded to refrigeration-grade copper tubes.  The condenser fan is of a low-noise axial type. Fan blades are  fully enclosed by a safety grill.

Technical Specifications

Cooling capacity

The cooling capacity of a chiller is dependent on its operating conditions, particularly the liquid temperature and concentration.

The FT63 has a typical cooling capacity of 2kW with an outlet temperature of 0°C, using a 20% glycol solution (typical FT174X application). For other applications please consult Armfield.
