40 Ton  Air Cooled Outdoor Chiller

KSE Series industrial 40 ton outdoor air-cooled chillers feature a compact, all-in-one package designed to minimize installation cost, maximize usable space and lower electric bills. Designed for harsh outdoor environments KSE Series chillers require no options to operate within the standard -20°F to 125°F ambient environment conditions. Standard process fluid temperatures of 20°F to 80°F are ideal for industrial applications. The modular design allows up to 12 refrigeration circuits to be combined into a single system for up to 720 tons of cooling capacity.

Chillers are available with or without integrated pumping packages, including high and low pressure pumping with dedicated stand-by and built-in pressurized and non-pressured tanks.

KSE Series chillers come standard with Dynamic Lift technology to continuously calculate the lowest allowable refrigerant pressure for any combination of operating conditions for maximize chiller energy savings and stable process fluid temperatures of +/- 1°F.

About KSE Series Air Cooled Outdoor Chillers

Thermal Care designs, manufactures, and tests 40 ton outdoor air cooled chillers in Niles, Illinois, USA. These industrial grade chillers are manufactured to meet the nationally recognized C-UL requirements. KSEA040 ton chillers are designed for outdoor environments to conserve valuable plant floor space and can be located either on the roof or on the side of the building.

The 40 ton model KSEA040 is a packaged, compact air cooled water chiller and includes direct drive scroll compressors using EPA approved low GWP R-454B refrigerant or energy efficient R-410A refrigerant. KSEA040 chillers use two main heat exchangers: one that absorbs the heat from the process (evaporator) and one that removes the heat from the chiller (condenser). This eliminates the need for any support systems such as a cooling tower system for water-cooled chillers or interconnecting refrigeration piping for remote air-cooled systems. All KSE chillers use stainless steel brazed evaporators to resist corrosion. The chiller comes standard with PLC controls and a large color touch screen to provide advanced diagnostics and precise temperature control. The control panel is prewired to include all motor starters and requires a single-point electrical connection.
