Designing quality products for specific applications in support customer like you

ECT standard designs are engineered with quality components and material


While the industry is moving toward the lower cost options, ECT

will never sacrifice quality to reduce cost


Our goal is to manufacture high quality products that are reliable

and efficient, at a competitive price

What is a Chiller?

ECT Process that removes heat from one element (water/glycol/air) and deposits into another (ambient air or water). The standard design is a system that cools 60° F water (water/glycol, or air) to 50° F and deposits the heat into the ambient air at 95° F (or water at 85° F).

The function of controlling the temperature in manufacturing and process equipment can be achieved in four ways - 1) a cooling tower that supplies water at 85° F or higher and by using chillers that supply water at 60° F or lower.

Water cooled chiller

water cooled chiller

A portable chiller - is a single pump chiller, can be supplied with either air or water cooled condensers, used to cool one or two machines, process water flow limited to 2.4 gpm/ton, this limits the use of this type of chiller.


A packaged chiller - is a two pump system, one pump for the evaporator, the other for the varying process, can be supplied with either air cooled or water cooled condensers, no process water flow restrictions but this type of chiller is not expandable as plant cooling load increases.


A central chilling system - is where one or more central chillers are connected to a common two pump tank set, stand-by pump (s), can be added, and chillers can be added to the maximum cooling capacity of pump tank.


A central cooling tower system - is where one or more cooling towers are connected to a common two pump tank set, standby pump (s), can be added, and towers can be added to the maximum cooling capacity of pump tank.


Ect use Premium Components

Evaporator - cools the water, water/glycol or air by transferring the heat to a refrigerant which is turned into a gas. Compressor - takes this gas and increases its pressure so that ambient air or water can remove the heat.


Condenser - rejects heat gained by the gas using ambient air or cooling tower water to condense the gas back to a liquid for use again by the evaporator.


Holding Tank - holds the circulating coolant, usually water (can be water/glycol), tank is sized large enough to prevent turbulent flow in tank causing pump cavitation.


Pump - circulates coolant from the holding tank to the evaporator and from the evaporator to the machine or process being cooled and back to the tank.


Control Panel - houses temperature controller, compressor contactor, pump starter, 3-phase fuses, control transformer, safety controls, run and fail lights.
