JBJ Lighting's Arctica-Commerical Series are specifically designed for coldwater systems that must be kept constant at 59 degrees F. Their Titanium "Helix" make this ideal for fresh or saltwater applications. These chillers range from 1/2 HP to 3 HP and provide the same powerful cooling performance with a remote Auto IC Temperature Control System.

Advanced Features

Titanium "Helix" Heat Exchanger
Unique titanium coil design allows for maximum contact exposure. The absolute best element for heat exchange and corrosion resistance on the market.

Energy Efficiency
These units provide the highest BTU (British Thermal Units) heat removal capacity with the lowest amperage draw.

Full Auto IC Digital LED Control System
This state-of-the-art digital LED thermostat system will automatically control your temperature within +1/-1 Fahrenheit from your desired set point. Bright LED allows for constant temperature reading with an "easy" calibration function. We have even added a "Thermal Chip" in the control system that will prevent the heat exchanger from freezing due to controller failure or low water flow. Our Smart-Chip will store and reset the controller in case of a power failure.

"Easy Hook-Up"
Our unique design allows the unit to be "hooked-up" without any tools or hard plumbing. We offer commercial grade compression fittings to be used with 1" & 1.25" PVC. These watertight fittings will handle up to a maximum working pressure of 25 PSI.

Lowest Noise and Vibration Level
Our commercial series chillers provide the lowest noise and vibration level in the "industrial" classification.

Side Handles
ABS molded handles allow for easy lifting and moving.

1 Year Warranty
JBJ warranties all commercial chillers for 1 full year from the date of purchase.
