OVERVIEW:
Heating & Cooling

The temperature of the process, machine and tooling need to be regulated to produce quality parts. Temperature control devices such as process chillers are typically water or oil-based; the selection depends on the temperature range required by the process. Chillers can be portable or centrally located. Industrial cooling towers are installed outside the plant building generally either elevated on a stand, or mounted on the roof.
