How to Use the Cooling and Chilling Calculator

This calculator is designed to help beverage producers determine the required cooling capacity needed to effectively chill the beverage components before and during the carbonation process.Proper temperature control is crucial for ensuring the desired CO2 solubility and absorption, which directly impacts the final carbonation level and sensory properties of the beverage.To use the calculator, follow these steps:

  1. Initial Beverage Temperature (°C): Enter the initial temperature of the beverage components (e.g., syrup, water) before the cooling and chilling process.
  2. Target Beverage Temperature (°C): Enter the desired target temperature of the beverage after the cooling and chilling process.
  3. Beverage Volume (L): Enter the total volume of the beverage that needs to be cooled and chilled.
  4. Specific Heat Capacity (kJ/kg°C): Enter the specific heat capacity of the beverage. The default value is set to 4.186 kJ/kg°C, which is the specific heat capacity of water. Adjust this value if you are using a different type of beverage.
  5. Cooling Time (seconds): Enter the desired time frame in which the beverage needs to be cooled and chilled to the target temperature.

Once you have entered all the required information, click the “Calculate Cooling Capacity” button. The calculator will then display the required cooling capacity in kilowatts (kW) that the cooling equipment (e.g., chillers, heat exchangers) must be able to provide to achieve the desired temperature conditions.By using this calculator, you can ensure that your beverage production process has the appropriate cooling and chilling capabilities to maintain the optimal temperature throughout the carbonation process. This helps you achieve the target carbonation levels and product quality, meeting the expectations of your customers.If you have any questions or need further assistance, please don’t hesitate to contact our team. We’re here to help you optimize your beverage production operations.
