MINIATURE-SCALE R&D TECHNOLOGY
FT63 Laboratory Process Chiller - Issue 3
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 FT74/FT74XTS UHT system.
- Continuously recirculating glycol solutions for cold-chilled liquid temperatures
- Temperature controller on chilled liquid outlet enables stable processing
- High cooling capacity
- Integral high-capacity liquid pump
- Mobile unit
- Washable control panel
- Optional stainless steel casing
- Low refrigerant charge
- Low running costs
- Easily cleaned and maintained
The FT63 contains a reservoir of cooled fluid, which is pumped through the external process to be coole (eg heat exchanger system).
The cooling fluid can be water, or a mixture of glycol and water, dependent 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.

Packaged coil type made of copper tubes and aluminium fins.
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.
The cooling capacity of a chiller is dependent on its operating conditions, particularly the liquid temperature and concentration.
The FT63 has a cooling capacity of 2kW with an outlet temperature of +3°C and using a 20% glycol solution (typical FT74/FT74XTS application). For other applications please consult Armfield.
