Medical Chillers Explained

In a medical lab, the failure to store human materials or materials to be used in human patients at the correct temperature could be disastrous. We can help the medical labs and industries in maintaining the correct temperature for storage.
Want to know how successful medical facilities are able to maintain the storage temperature? Read the below guide to know how we can help your medical lab to work efficiently with our medical chillers.

There are a variety of industrial and medical applications that require years of reliable refrigeration. The latest technology, which we specialize in at J.C. Younger, will ensure that your medical lab or industrial facility can achieve steady temperatures for every type of process.

With our leased medical chillers and medical lab chillers, you can maintain constancy while also being able to customize the temperature of each process through an easy-to-configure computerized dashboard.

We thought it would be a good idea here to explain how a recirculating chiller works, especially to help a company in need of medical chillers leasing to keep their processes constant.

We believe that our clients should be able to source medical chillers of the highest quality without paying too much for electricity and water.

Exploring the Recirculating Chiller

A recirculating chiller typically runs on a pump, such as a centrifugal pump. It works in a cooling loop, which begins with the compressor, continues with the condenser, moves to the expansion valve, and concludes with the evaporator.

After the evaporation process is complete, the cooling loop begins again with the condenser.Each component in a recirculating chiller depends on the integrity of all parts within the unit. For example, if there is a blockage within the unit, then it will not function according to its design, and the temperatures that it provides for medical or industrial large processes will not be consistent.

You want to lease a medical chiller unit with a recirculating pump containing free-flowing liquids and gases that will be easy to service throughout its lifetime. Remember, any variation in the temperature provided by a medical chiller can potentially compromise the quality of what the process is producing (i.e. human tissues or pharmaceutical liquids to be used in human treatments), processing, or storing.

In a medical lab, for example, the failure to store human materials or materials to be used in human patients at the correct temperature could be disastrous.

How Does the Cooling Path Look in Your Application?

When it comes to choosing medical chillers, we encourage you to first consider the types of heat (albeit mechanical, chemical, radiation) within the system that could affect the temperature of what must be cooled.

For example, you may have a liquid that needs to be maintained at a constant temperature a few degrees above freezing, but it becomes warmer due to heat buildup within its housing unit. We could help you choose the right equipment to create a closed-loop system that provides a cooling liquid around the container.

This keeps the liquid within the unit cool (at a preferred temperature) and ensures that excess heat is pumped away by the cooling unit and released into the air through evaporation. Other units may include a cooling coil that is present within the liquid that must be cooled, ensuring that the contents never exceed the desired temperature.

Consideration of Waste Heat

It’s important to keep in mind that most medical chillers are going to contain chemicals that are regulated by the Environmental Protection Agency. The refrigerant that is present within your chiller may be one containing a CFC, which must, of course, be disposed of in a manner that does not harm the environment.

Another by-product of any chilling process, whether you use a recirculating chiller or not, is waste heat. The heat that is released through the evaporation process must be pumped out of the building through a safe method.

For example, you don’t want excess heat to cause problems with cooling or refrigeration of materials in other parts of the industrial facility or medical lab.

We understand what it takes to provide medical chillers and other types of chillers for reasonable rates at your site anywhere in the U.S. For reasonable rates and a high degree of reliability in each leased medical chillers unit, please contact us.

Sam graduated from Dunwoody College with a degree in HVAC Service, and started out working in the resident side of work. After many years in the residential side of work, Sam took a chance back in 2018 to work in the commercial side of hvac with Jc younger. Since started working with them, Sam has been streamlining Jc younger to make the service side quicker at getting customer back to cooling right away. He always puts the customer needs first, giving them great customer service, and getting them back cooling right away. When Sam is not at work he enjoys hitting up breweries around the area, going up to the cabin, and doing remodeling projects. He also enjoys going out to lake of the woods for some good walleye fishing.In his free time he enjoys taking his grandmother out for meals, fishing and spending time with girlfriend and dog Sara.



Sandy has been in the background of JCY since a baby, growing up playing on chiller systems in the large 12,000SQFT pole shed JCY stores units in. Sandy started working at a young age doing simple tasks like sweeping, painting, organizing Copper fittings and other small tasks. In 2005 Sandy started his 4 year degree at Dunwoody College and graduated in 2007.

During his schooling their he also started his apprenticeship under his fathers supervision. The training consisted of installs of glycol piping in the field, building first chiller and assisting with Chiller service repairs. In 2006 he started learning the in and outs of breweries, and has been JCY’s brewery specialist since then. A challenge he took on was glycol piping a 30 bbl brewery by him self and completed that task in less than 20 day with 16 hour shifts.
