Central Portable Air Cooled Chiller
Serving a diverse market, Cold Shot Chillers® designs and manufactures economical and dependable central portable air cooled chillers. Operating since the 1970's, our knowledge and experience provides us the capabilities of meeting virtually any specific application.
The controls for our Central air cooled chillers are integrated to include all motor starters, and require a single point electrical connection. All chillers are PLC controlled equipped with self-diagnostics and WIFI/LAN/LTE connectivity for the Cold Shot Chillers® predictive maintenance Guardian™ app providing email/text notifications for predictive maintenance milestones, technical alarms, fault codes and alerts to nearly eliminate downtime.
Cold Shot Chillers® provide all three types of portable air cooled chillers. The following are all available in 2-100 ton capacity:
Standard Flow Chillers
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.
Reverse Flow Chillers
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.
Continuous Flow Chillers
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.
An air cooled chiller refers to a chiller system that uses the ambient air surrounding the condensing unit to cool and condense the refrigerant back into a liquid. The term “portable” is not referring to its mobility, but to the basic configuration of the system. Normally, once installed, the portable chiller unit is never moved. This term describes any chiller system that contains the refrigeration circuit, the reservoir and the pump or pumps, all necessary components. A central chiller is referred to as any chiller used to cool several processes. The chiller can be either water or air cooled, and have a stationary or portable configuration.
