Dry Cleaning Chillers

WPI has supplied chillers for dry cleaning applications for over 15 years. Let us supply you with a high quality, easy to use, American made water chiller to cool your clothesprocessing equipment. Modular chiller systems, packaged chillers with internal pump & reservoir, closed loop chiller systems, glycol chiller systems, FRP cooling towers, split chiller spot cooling with indoor fan coils are some of the systems Whaley designs and builds right here at its North Texas facility.


Application Description:

Dry cleaning equipment need chilled water to function properly. For years, many have just used tap water and poured it right back down the drain. This practice is very costly in monthly water and sewer rates. Many US States have banned this type of cooling practice for dry cleaning companies due to the scarcity of water supply in certain areas. For this reason, many dry cleaning companies have relied on chillers to provide a closed loop of re-circulated water to cool their dry cleaning machines.

Application Requirements:
· Most dry cleaning machines use water to cool the refrigerated solvent recovery unit, the solvent distillation unit, and the solvent cooler.  The unique aspect of these heat exchangers is that they all require different flow rates and their heat loads vary from the beginning of their cycle to the end.


· For example, a typical dry cleaning machine that has a 5 h.p. compressor for drying and a 50 GPH distillation rate may have peak loading on the chilling system of 10 to 12 tons.  However, a properly engineered American Chiller of 5 tons capacity can be utilized.

· The keys are a reservoir capacity that will store the excess heat until the cycles end, and a high capacity pump to provide a continuous, high volume recirculating flow.  A properly installed American Chillers will maintain the reservoir temperature within 5 degrees of set point.
