The term “portable water 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 the necessary components – the refrigeration circuit, the reservoir, and the pump or pumps – within a single footprint.
The controls of a portable water 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.
See our portable water chiller specifications PDF for detailed information.
There are two types of portable chillers:
A “standard flow” water-cooled chiller system has an integrated tank used in a closed loop cooling application. All the water pumped from the chiller unit returns to the main unit under the pressure generated by the pump. Years of experience in this manufacturing process allows us to service any industry or any unique application with our standard water-cooled portable chillers.
A “reverse flow” portable water 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.
