When you use a solvent like petroleum ether, a recirculating chiller should be implemented if the tap water is warmer than 15 °C. The temperature difference between the boiling point of the solvent and the cooling water temperature should be 20 - 25 °C in order to achieve a good condensation of the solvent in the condenser and to keep a good solvent recovery.
The compressor in the chiller generates heat. The heat is blown out of the unit by a fan. The heat emission depends on the cooling capacity of the chiller. The heat emissions are:
- F-100: max. 300 W
- F-105: max. 300 W
- F-305: max. 300 W
- F-308: max. 500 W
- F-314: max. 1000 W
- F-325: max. 1800 W
In standby mode is the compressor and also the circulating pump turned off and do not generate any heat emissions.
