Our Standard line of Water Chillers all come with a titanium heat exchanger and a built in flow switch to disable the chiller in the event of a pump failure. A titanium heat exchanger keeps copper from coming into contact with your water. Because toxic levels of copper can build up in water being used for long periods of time, copper heat exchangers aren’t recommended for use in a closed loop aquarium setup. The use of titanium = Reef Tank Safe!

  • Pump Recommendation: Danner Mag-drive 500gph – 1800gph. Other pumps may be acceptable for use however they often apply less than 10psi to the chiller. 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.

  1. Matthew Hartman (verified owner)

    Live in Birmingham, AL have this unit hooked up to my 150G display reef aquarium. The chiller is located in my garage and set to 76deg and has no problems in the middle of summer keeping up no problems. It was a super easy setup just make sure you have the space for it. Excellent chiller and I would happily buy again.

  2. Tod Jones

    I purchased a 1/2 HP chiller and installed it only to find out it went to “error” on the readout after a few minutes. Followed the instructions to check if the sensor was loose, which it wasn’t. Penguin replaced the unit at no cost. The new one works flawlessly and unlike the first one, it’s installed properly. I owe Penquin an apology for my “error” not theirs. I’ll be purchasing more from them without hesitation. Very good people to work with.

  3. Leo

    Purchased the 1/2 HP (HE) unit for use in a chill tub. (Plunge tank) I have a 150 gallon Rubbermaid stock tank which is in a small 7 x 7 room in an exterior shed. The room was 70 degrees and water started out tap cold at 60, set the temp to 52. The unit chugged along and quickly dropped the water temp. I have the exterior of the tub insulated and have a make shift cover on it. I figure this saved me many $1000 over a prebuilt chill tub. I am very happy with this for my application.
