The article offers information on the advantages of variable speed technology to users of industrial chillers as well as chiller manufacturers. Variable speed, when applied to a refrigeration compressor works to always fit the compressor output to the demand for cooling. The compressor always runs at the speed needed to deliver the cooling required to achieve the target temperature and no faster. Variable-speed compressors are also money-savers since they run all the time.
