Italy-based Green Box srl introduced the Minibox, a compact stand-alone water-cooled water chiller that sits beside the processing machine and boasts two integral temperature control units.
The Minibox chills and heats water in the temperature range of 20-200° F.
During cold months, it uses free cooling, to produce chilled water without operating the chiller, saving energy.
The unit's scroll compressors use R 410A refrigerant gas.
Water cooling provides extremely low noise levels, according to the company. The water pump, condenser and evaporator and heat exchanger for free-cooling are made out of stainless steel.
Having two temperature control units allow for one-zone only and/or two-zone heating and cooling, and/or integrated free-cooling, said Jose Garcia-Hernandez, operations director for the company's
For cooling, Minibox can switch back and forth between using compressors in the chiller, or from adiabatic cooling through one of Green Box's closed-loop, rooftop cooling units using adiabatic cooling.
