Orion manufactures chiller systems including water and air cooled chillers. Orion supplies chilling systems and chillers to a wide variety of industrial processes and production machinery applications, ranging from self-contained portable units through to completely installed “turn-key systems”. A chiller can be used to cool any machine or process that operates at 70° F or lower.

Plastics

In the plastics industry, a chilling system cools the hot plastic that is injected, blown, extruded or stamped. A chilling system can also cool down the equipment that is used to create plastic products hydraulics of the molding machine,

gear box and barrel of the extruder that saves on energy and on the wear and tear of the machine itself. Because expansion is inevitable in the plastics industry, our modular chillers allow processors to bring in a new module that can installed within a matter of hours. If you have an industrial process where expansion is inevitable but difficult to anticipate or calculate, a modular chilling system could be the perfect solution.

Injection Molding

In addition to removing the heat from the plastic mold, our chillers can be used to transfer heat away from the hydraulic heat-exchanger, the mold temperature controller (thermolator) and the feed throat of the injection molding machine.

While there are other heat removal devices such as a cooling tower, well or city water, using our chillers offers you some distinct advantages.

Printing

In the printing industry, a chiller not only removes the heat generated by the friction of the printing rollers, but cools down the paper after it comes out of the ink drying ovens in the process.

Laser

In the laser cutting industry, light projection industry, etc. a chilling system is used to cool down the lasers and power supplies. It is necessary to discharge the heat from the system to avoid component overheating.

Cooling guarantees long-term laser wavelength precision and the desired laser beam quality. The laser system is notably less impaired by thermal stress when cooled properly.


Chillers are used to cool the following on laser systems:

1. Laser Medium
2. Power Cabinets
3. Resonator
4. Laser Cutting & Welding Heads
5. Power Meter
6. Servo Motor
7. Optics (CO2)

Rubber

In the rubber industry to cool the multi-zone water temperature control units of the rubber extruder barrel, cool the rubber mill, calendars and bambury mixers.

Beverage

In the beverage industry, a chiller removes the heat gained from the process during mixing, cooking, or after pasteurizing the product.

Air Conditioning

With cooling expenses accounting for 30% to 50% of your total energy costs and rising fast, and the impending phaseout of chlorofluorocarbon (CFC) and hydrochlorofluorocarbon (HCFC) refrigerants,

there is a rapidly growing need to replace large commercial air conditioning and refrigeration systems. To meet this demand, we offer HVAC, air conditioning or modular chillers for large industrial and commercial applications. Our systems are easy to replace or maintain and have a service life of 10 to 20 years giving you long term, low cost energy efficiency.

MRI

Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is a method of creating images of organs inside of the human body. In the medical profession these devices are often used to distinguish pathological tissue,

i.e., a brain tumor, from normal tissue. MRI chillers are used to remove the heat from the MRI scanner and transfer it to ether the surrounding ambient air or a water source such as a cooling tower.

Anodizing

Because anodizing process generates a lot of heat, cooling is a must, particularly for hard coating processes. Chillers will do most of the work, removing process heat using either an air or water cooled chiller.

Air cooled units are generally installed outside, and eliminate the need for a tower. Water-cooled units are the most efficient method, particularly in warmer climates. They are installed inside a building with a cooling tower outside.
