Broken chiller fan (detail)

Broken chiller fan (detail)

Closer look at the broken chiller unit. Chillers work like an average household air conditioner, only at a much larger scale. Large compressors force air into a condenser. When the compressed air decompresses into a condenser, it causes a significant cooling effect (the decompression phase of the Carnot cycle). Then, air is forced through the condenser, causing the air to cool, and mix with the warmer air. Since this is a central chiller plant, the condenser likely transferred that coolth into a liquid medium, which was then pumped elsewhere.
