MSC Filtration Technologies represents Turmoil Chillers - an American company who manufactures high quality, heavy duty oil and water chillers out of its plant in West Swanzey, NH USA.
MSC and Turmoil offer a complete line of oil and coolant chillers for many applications not limited to Machine Tool Coolants and Oils, Medical Equipment, Linear Motors, Hydrostatic Bearings, Lasers, X Ray Equipment , EDM, High Speed Spindles and Hydraulics.
Turmoil Coolers provide the precise temperature control of recirculating coolants that is necessary for precision machining and reliable equipment operation.

Closed-Loop chillers recirculate coolant from a tank mounted on board the chiller, through a sealed coolant loop and heat source (process) and back to the tank. The tank, pump, and evaporator are all on board the chiller.
Open-Loop chillers recirculate fluid from a remote tank, through the chiller and back to the tank. The chiller works to maintain a constant fluid temperature in the tank. The pump and evaporator are on board the chiller. The tank is remote.
In-Line chillers cool fluid that is passing through under pressure. Only the evaporator is in the chillers. Both the pump and tank are remote.
These chillers are often used in applications where it is advantageous to have the pump mounted on or near the tank to recirculate fluid through the chiller and back to the tank.
Drop-In coolers are designed to be mounted on top of a tank to cool the fluid that is surrounding the coils. The stainless steel immersion coil type evaporator is submerged into the fluid in the tank. A small agitation pump continuously moves the fluid around the evaporator coils ensuring proper heat transfer. The temperature controller senses the fluid temperature and controls the chillers cycling to maintain the fluid in the tank at the set-point.
The PT Model Chiller Uses Two pumps with one process tank. One pump circulates coolant through the evaporator to maintain a constant tank temperature, while a second pump circulates coolant from the process tank (on-board chiller) through the process and then back to the process tank.
Turmoil application engineers are specialists, available to help you select or design a cooling system to meet your specific needs. They are very familiar with your applications and our equipment. Turmoil prides itself on being able to provide accurate technical data when you need it. So, if you need help, give Turmoil a call.
The heat load is the amount of heat to be removed from the coolant as it passes through the chiller. In order to size a cooler, this heat load must be accurately determined. This can be done in several ways:
It is very important to determine the type of cooler that is required. All applications involve a fluid passing through an evaporator (heat exchanger), but how does the coolant get there?
Closed-Loop coolers recirculate coolant from a tank mounted in the cooler, through the heat load and back to the tank. The tank, pump, and evaporator are all in the cooler.
Open-Loop coolers recirculate coolant from a remote tank, through the cooler and back to the tank. The pump and evaporator are in the cabinet. The tank is remote.
In-Line coolers cool fluid that is passing through the cooler under pressure. Only the evaporator is in the cooler. The pump and tank are remote.
Drop-In coolers are mounted on top of the coolant tank with the stainless steel evaporator coils submerged in the coolant.
Because water and oil have such different heat transfer characteristics, it is very important that the type of coolant being used is determined. If in doubt, specify an OCO cooler.
Water-Based Coolants are fluids that contain not more than 5% oil. These coolants may contain additives such as rust inhibitors, algaecides, and/or up to 30% glycol.
Oil-Based Coolants are fluids that contain more than 5% oil. Soluble oils, semi-synthetic fluids, hydraulic oils, cutting oils, and spindle oils are typical.
Clean Coolants are fluids that do not contain particles that could clog the pump or evaporator. The coolant is usually sealed from contamination or filtered to remove damaging particles.
Dirty Coolants contain or potentially can contain particles such as fines or chips that could clog the pump or evaporator. An In-Line filter or cleanable evaporator is often required.
