Portable Air Cooled Chillers

Portable Air Cooled Chiller

The term “portable air cooled chiller” refers to the basic configuration of the system, not to its mobility. Most portable chiller units will never be moved once installed. The term refers to any chiller system that contains all of the necessary components – the refrigeration circuit, the reservoir, and the pump or pumps – within a single footprint.

The controls of a portable air cooled chiller unit are integrated to include all motor starters, and require a single point electrical connection. The standard Cold Shot Chillers® product offering includes portable chillers ranging from 2 to 100 tons in capacity.

There are three types of portable air cooled chillers:

Portable Standard Flow Air Cooled Chiller

A “standard flow” chiller system has an integrated tank. It’s used in a closed loop cooling application where all of the water pumped from the chiller returns to the main unit under the pressure generated by the pump

Portable Reverse Flow Air Cooled Chiller

A “reverse flow” portable chiller does not include a tank. It’s a component in an open loop cooling application where an external tank or trough is used. The water in this tank or trough is gravity fed into the chiller pump, through the chiller and filter, and back to the process or to the tank or trough.

Portable Continuous Flow Air Cooled Chiller

Continuous feed units cool a fluid source on a single pass. Chillers are typically equipped with a pump, a tank and a secondary heat exchanger and filter.
