VIInstruction on How to Choose Water Chiller

(A) High-speed electro- spindle water chiller:

  1. Selection method:
  • water temperature: spindle cooling water temperature should be controlled at about 25 °C;

(2) Water pressure: the water pressure required for cooling the spindle is about 0.2MPa;

(3) Calculation of heating power of spindle:

P heat = P motor η

P heat – spindle heat kW

P motor – spindle drive motor power kW

η – spindle heat loss efficiency

For high-speed motor spindles, heat loss η = 30% can be calculated (Generally, domestic electric spindle value η = 30%,  in Germany, Switzerland and Japan, electric spindle value η = 20%) .

Example: The power of a machine spindle motor is 11kW, the maximum speed is 30000rpm, try to estimate the heat of the machine spindle:

P heat = 11×30% = 3.3 kW

The cooling capacity of WLP-35 is 3.5kw when the water temperature is 25°C and the ambient temperature is 30°C, which is higher than the spindle heating power of 3.3KW. It fully meets the requirements for use; when the water supply pressure is 0.2MPa, the flow rate is 25L/min.

 

 (B) low-speed wire-wound wire cutting machine:

  1. Selection method:

(1) Calculate the heating power based on the installed power:

P heat = η·P power

P Heat – Heat kW

P-loading – loading power kW

η – heat loss efficiency

Taken η≈20% for the general low speed WEDM.

(2) Calculate heating power based on the rate of increase of water temperature in the working tank

P heat = CP ·m·ΔT/t

P heat—heating power KW

1 kW =860 kcal/h

1 kcal/h = 1.16×10-3 KW

CP———specific heat capacity of constant pressure KJ/Kg·°C

Constant pressure specific heat capacity of water 4.18 KJ/Kg·°C

M——the total amount of water in the tank kg

ΔT – Temperature rise per unit time °C

T(t) – time S

Example: The total water volume of a working fluid tank for a low-speed wire-cut WEDM is 400kg. In normal operation, the water temperature rises from 25°C to 29°C in 40 minutes. The chiller selection method is as follows:

P heat = 4.18 x 400 x (29-25) / (40 x 60) = 2.79 kW

The cooling capacity of the water chiller should be greater than 20% of the heat, and a WLP-35 water chiller can be used.

 

 (C) Laser device:

  1. Selection method: Calculate the calorific power of the laser according to the photoelectric conversion efficiency of the laser

Calculation formula: P heat = P laser · (1-η)/η

P heat: laser heat (W)

P laser: laser input power (W)

η: laser photoelectric conversion rate (%), determined according to different lasers.

Carbon dioxide laser range: 8%-10%

Lamp pump laser range: 2%-3%

Semiconductor pump laser range: 20%-30%

Fiber laser range: 20%-30%

Example: The output power of carbon dioxide 1000W laser is 1000W, and the photoelectric conversion rate is 9.5%.

P heat = 1000 x (1-9.5%) ÷ 9.5% = 1000×9.5263 = 9526W

The cooling capacity of this water chiller should be greater than the calorific value, for which reference can be made to WLP-100.
