Cold Plunge Chillers

Cold plunge pools and spas are becoming increasingly popular. They have long been used in Nordic style spas, but have seen more recent increased use in sports medicine hydrotherapy, replacing traditional ice baths. In addition to sports medicine hydrotherapy, cold plunge chillers are being used for residential pool cold plunge hydrotherapy spas.

Selecting a Chiller

When selecting an air cooled chiller package for a cold plunge bath or similar, there are a number of considerations to be made.

Heat Exchanger

Special care has to be taken when selecting a heat exchanger between the chiller and the water. If selected improperly the exchanger could potentially corrode contaminating bathing water or ruining your chiller. When looking for a chiller it is important to mention the type of water you are using. Fresh water, chlorinated water, or salt water.

Cooling Capacity

Cooling capacity will vary based on a number of factors, primarily how many gallons of water you are chilling, to what temperature, and how quickly. Be sure to consider the total number of gallons if chilling, for example, multiple tubs in a sports complex.

Power Requirements

Our standard chiller configurations require 230v/1ph/60hz power or 460v/3ph/60hz power depending on size. Other voltages available and in stock include 115V, 208V, 230V (single and three phase)
