Penguin Chillers 1 HP High Efficiency (HE) Water Chiller

Elevate your DIY cold plunge setup with the Penguin Chillers 1 HP HE Water Chiller, featuring a superior titanium heat exchanger. Titanium is chosen for its exceptional ability to prevent copper from coming into contact with water, a critical factor in ensuring your plunge remains safe and enjoyable over time. Copper heat exchangers can lead to toxic accumulations in water, but with titanium, you're guaranteed a safe, efficient cooling experience.

This chiller is not only effective but also durable, making it an ideal addition to your personal wellness routine. Its robust design ensures long-lasting performance, providing you with consistent, chilled temperatures for an invigorating and refreshing cold plunge experience.

The digital controller is crucial for keeping the water at the desired temperature. It consistently checks the temperature of the water flowing in, and it requires steady water flow to ensure precise temperature readings. When the water's temperature rises above the set point, the controller turns on the compressor and fan to reduce the water temperature. It turns these components off again once it reaches the desired temperature.

This unit is part of the HE series, which features a larger titanium coil than standard models. This larger coil improves cooling efficiency by increasing both the surface area that contacts the water and the duration of contact, without increasing energy use. Although it uses the same compressor as non-HE models, the HE version achieves better cooling efficiency without requiring more power.

Pump and Controller Recommendation

  • Pump: Danner Mag-drive 500gph – 1800gph. Other pumps may be acceptable, however they need to be rated for less than 10psi max pressure. If you’re using a different pool/spa pump or any other pump rated in horsepower please talk with our tech support first. There is typically a simple work around that allows our chillers to provide cooling to systems which operate at higher pressures. We would be more than happy to help you determine the best method of installation for your system. Be sure and visit our “Accessoriesweb page to view our selection of pumps and accessory packages available.
  • Digital Controller: The controller constantly monitors your systems incoming water temperature, therefore, water flow is needed at all times in order for it to successfully read current temperatures. When your systems water temperature moves above your desired set point, the controller tells the compressor and fan to turn on and begin cooling the water. Once your desired set point temperature is reached, the compressor and fan will turn off.
  • High Efficiency: HE models utilize a larger titanium coil compared to the standard version. The larger coil offers more contact surface area and contact time to provide more cooling. Both models run the same compressor, which means their power draw is the same. The high efficiency model is providing more cooling without any extra power consumption.
