DuraChill® Portable Chillers

Category Chillers

Country of manufacture the United States of America

“Changing the world of chillers forever” is more than a catch phrase. It’s delivering on a three year promise to create a product line that redefines what a chiller is. Focused on ease of operation, new innovative thinking and being environmentally conscious, DuraChill® is the new leader for all others to follow.

Full Color Touch Screen Display - Our color touch screen display gives you all the information you need at a glance. The screen will display continuous status of set temperature, actual temperature, reservoir fill level and output pressure as well as the status of your air filter. System messages are provided in easy to read text instead of confusing error codes.

Front Fill Reservoir  - DuraChill® Chillers offer a conveniently located front fill reservoir. You no longer have to go to the back of the chiller top open to fill the reservoir. DuraChill® has the fill port in the front, making it easy to access, avoiding spills and saving time.

Dynamic Self Changing Filter - DuraChill® is preprogrammed to change its own air filter once a month for a two year period, and the change interval can be adjusted to suit your operating environment. This will dramatically reduce downtime and unnecessary service calls and relieve you of the burden of preventative maintenance on your new DuraChill® chiller.

Continuous Liquid Level Monitoring - Because pump seals will fail in as little as 30 seconds of being run dry, DuraChill® chillers include a state-of-the-art capacitance liquid level sensor to protect the pump from premature failure. If the fluid level becomes low, the DuraChill® chiller will give you visual and audible alarms. If the fluid level reaches a point where there’s a risk of pulling air into the pump, DuraChill® will shut the chiller down and present another alarm.

UV Light Biological Growth Inhibitor - As a part of our commitment to the environment, we developed a patent-pending UV Light Biological Growth Inhibitor that will continuously control biological growth in the fluid path without the need to add chemical growth inhibitors and preventing algicides from being released into the world’s waterways.

Whispercool® Noise Reduction - These high-performance chillers utilize our exclusive patent-pending noise reduction system. The Whispercool® system evaluates the demand for cooling from the application then slows the fan speed to the minimum necessary to achieve control point, making the chiller extremely quiet while maintaining optimal temperature control at the same time.


  • Choice of Turbine or Positive Displacement pump
  • Intuitive touch screen display with a choice of 5 operating languages
  • Home screen simultaneously displays set temperature, actual temperature, fluid pressure, fluid level, air filter status and timer
  • Self-changing air filter system eliminates preventative maintenance by  automatically changing the filter media at user-definable intervals.
  • Continuous fluid level monitoring protects pump and prevents freezing
  • Patented Whispercool® noise reduction system reduces operating noise levels to the almost imperceptible levels while maintaining optimal cooling performance
  • Heat up to 70°C, without additional options
  • Reduced global warming potential through a highly optimized refrigeration system design that greatly reduces the amount of refrigerant gas needed in the chiller and allows for migration to natural refrigerants that have little or no global warming potential
  • Components are recyclable and meet or exceed global environmental standards
  • UV Light Biological Growth Inhibitor System eliminates the need for algaecides
  • Patent-pending self-diagnostic system compares the chiller's functionality to its operating state the day it was built to minimize operating downtime and  unnecessary service calls
  • Front-fill reservoir access
  • Externally accessible adjustable pressure regulator valve
