1/2, 1, 1.5 Ton Air Cooled Water Chillers

Call Dykier Engineering for a self contained, energy efficient, air cooled Water Chiller unit shipped directly to your facility!

one ton water chillerDykier Chillers are refrigeration systems used to cool fluids to support industrial process cooling applications. Self contained chillers include an internal pumping system and reservoir system and can be moved between use points as needed. Air-Cooled chillers use indoor ambient air to cool the process load. This 1 ton (3.5 kW) portable water chiller provides process fluid between 20° - 70°F.

Dykier Industrial Chillers feature a compact footprint with easily accessible interior and a microprocessor that provides precise temperature control and extensive diagnostics. Air-cooled remote condenser models are packed with many standard innovative features that improve chiller performance and reliability.

Dyker Engineering Air-Cooled 1/2 to 3 Ton Chiller Features:

  • Energy Saving Design - The unit will cycle on and off with varied load demands.
  • Microprocessor Controlled.
  • Microprocessor controller provides diagnostics and accurate temperature control.
  • Generously sized air-cooled condensers for industrial environments with ambient temperatures up to 115¡F.
  • Internal reservoir comes with large capacity and a removable top.
  • Condenser discharge fan discharges air quietly through top of the portable industrial chillers.
  • Hot gas bypass provides accurate capacity control and extends compressor life.
  • Stainless steel brazed plate evaporator guards agains system freeze-up.
  • Water regulating valve keeps refrigerant pressure constant (water-cooled units only).
  • Evaporator freeze-up protection reduces potential for evaporator damage.
  • Easily removable side panel allows for easy access to interior components.
  • The unit is rated at ambient and 44 F chilled water.
  • Closed loop system eliminates contamination of the water system by recycling the water in a contaminant free flow path.
  • The Water Pump is bronze or stainless steel, and contaminate free.
  • Utilizes environmentally friendly R-22 refrigerant.
  • Ethylene glycol is not required for normal operating conditions. The unit will NOT be damaged due to an accidental freeze up.
  • The Condenser is designed to allow full capacity at higher temperatures.
  • Powder coat finish is highly durable and environmentally responsible.

Calculating Required Chiller Refrigeration Tons:

A water-chiller refrigeration ton is defined as:

1 refrigeration ton = 1 TONScond = 12,000 Btu/h = 3,025.9 k Calories/h = 12,661 kJ/h

A ton is the amount of heat removed by an air conditioning system that would melt 1 ton (2000 lbs.) of ice in 24 hours: 288,000 BTU/24 hr = 12,000 BTU/hr

Converting Btu to Tons of Refrigeration:

BTU Per Hour: Tons Of Refridgeration
6000 1/2
12000 1
18000 1 1/2
24000 2
30000 2 1/2
36000 3
42000 3 1/2
48000 4
54000 4 1/2
60000 5

Dykier Water Chiller Specifications

Chiller innovation and improvement is our constant goal. Tons capacity at 12,000 BTU/ton per hour @ 50°F LWT @ " 115°F condensing temperature. Capacities may be +/- 5% as reserved by the compressor manufacturer. Operating at temperatures below 50° will reduce chiller capacity. The minimum recommended operating temperature when no glycol is used is 48°F.
