We’ve taken chiller prototypes to the Lights Out 12 and Sweet 16 4.0 racing events where we demonstrated them for a select group of drivers and crews. Most teams experience at least a 30 minute cool down time when using other brands of iceless engine chillers on the market. We were able to cut 20 minutes off of their cool down times which amazed both drivers and their crews. We were able to reach temperatures in 10 minutes that took other chiller brands 30 plus minutes to achieve. In fact, within 20 minutes of testing, we had to cut our cooling demo short because we were getting “too cold”. We also ran tests with teams that only run water in their engine heads. These cooling times came in just a little bit slower due to the nature of slower heat pickup from the engine. Teams were still very impressed with these cool down times because they far exceeded what the other brands of iceless engine chillers were able to achieve.
Our reservoir opening accommodates chilling nitrous bottles, too. The larger opening allows for 2 nitrous bottles to be chilled at the same time. Using 40 degree Fahrenheit water to chill the bottles works faster than ice. This is because the water is not only being circulated in our chiller but it also has more contact surface area than simply putting your tanks on ice.
Another design feature that sets Penguin Chillers apart from other chilling units is our ability to “turn off” the reservoir itself. Initially you need the reservoir liquid cold (38F) when you first hook up the chiller to the cars engine. However, once the engine and reservoir have equalized in temperature the reservoir has done its job and is no longer needed. From this point keeping the cars engine cold can be achieved through the use of the Chillers compressor only. By turning off the reservoir portion of the unit, the chillers compressors can now dedicate 100% of its cooling power directly to the cars engine.
On race day when the car is disconnected from the chiller and leaving the pits, the reservoir can be switched back on to begin cooling itself before the car returns. Our large reservoir provides more stored cooling capacity.
- Hose Set: Feature Jiffy-Tite 5000 series Male+Female valved quick connections for car hookup. On the chiller side there are also valved Male+Female Jiffy-Tite 5000 quick connections- when you disconnect the hoses from the chiller the unit will not drain.
