Cellar Construction
This is only a guide and shall be considered as minimum requirements.
All interior walls and floors shall have a vapor barrier and a minimum of R13
insulation. All exterior walls and ceiling shall have a vapor barrier and a minimum
of R19 insulation. The vapor barrier shall be installed on the warm side of the
insulation. All joints, door frames, electrical outlets or switches and any pipes or
vents that go through the cellar shall be sealed to prevent air and moisture
leakage into the cellar. Concrete, rock, and brick are not insulation or vapor
barriers.
Doors shall be of a minimum size, insulated to at least R13 and tightly sealed
with high quality weather stripping. Be sure to seal the bottom of the door and fill
gap between the door’s frame and wall before installing the cap molding.
In order to maintain 55 °F in the wine cellar, the ambient temperature
surrounding the enclosure shall not exceed the temperature of the cellar by more
than 25 °F. No cellar wall shall receive direct sun or strong wind.
Lighting shall be of low wattage, with a timer to insure lights are not left on when
the cellar is not occupied.
The cooling system will not be able to maintain the proper temperature if fresh
moisture-laden air is constantly being introduced to the cellar. Symptoms of this
condition are; cooling unit runs all the time with only a slight reduction in
temperature and/or water overflows from the unit. Because of the temperature
difference between the inside and outside, very small cracks can allow large
amounts of outside air to enter into the cellar. Please be aware that moisture can
pass through solid concrete, paint and wood. Often a newly constructed cellar
contains fresh wood, paint, concrete and other building materials. These
materials contain large amounts of moisture. When placed into operation in this
type of environment, the system will work harder to remove this extra moisture
resulting in increased “run” time.

•
•
•
•
•
•
Wine-Mate rack split cooling systems WM-2500~6500SSRWC are designed
and used to provide a cold temperature between 50~65 °F for a properly
insulated wine cellar.
The wine cellar will maintain humidity range within 50~70% RH.
These temperature and humidity ranges like in natural caves are optimized
for long term storage of wine.
SSRWC units consist of a condensing unit and an evaporator unit; they are
connected by a liquid line and an insulated suction line.
SSRWC condensing units can be located away from the evaporator unit 50 ft
so that noise and compressor vibration are isolated.
SSRWC condensing units are water cooled so that exhaust ventilation is not
needed.
SSRWC evaporator units are designed for installation inside a rack or
between two ceiling joists, making them an ideal choice for small and medium
wine cellars. There are also multiple air inlet and outlet doors for different
installations.
Fig. 1 SSRWC Rack Split Cooling System
NOTE:
Capacity is determined under the cellar, the cellar ambient and the
condenser inlet water temperatures of 55°F, 75°F and 75°F, with R13
interior and R19 exterior insulations. Any higher ambient and water
temperatures, lower insulations will cause reducing capacity and the cellar
temperature may not be maintained at 55°F.

In case there is excessive frost, the parameters FnC = C-y, idF = 4 and MdF =
20 can be used to avoid frost.
9. How to adjust the humidity
The parameter Fon is used to adjust the humidity in the wine cellar. Higher Fon
results in higher relative humidity. Use a separate hygrometer to monitor the
humidity.
10. How to set alarm call
1) Speech notice will be sent to your phones when the cellar temperature is ALU
higher or ALL lower than the set-point Set.
2) In order to test the call function, set parameters Ald = 0 and dAO = 0. After
testing, set Ald = 60 and dAO = 23.
11. How to set low cellar temperature heater
The heater turns on at SAA minus Shy; the heater turns off at SAA.
NOTES:
• Use a forced air heater to warm up the wine cellar.
• If there is a thermostat on the heater, bypass it or set the thermostat at the
highest level.
If the heater runs more than 10 A current, use a 120VAC coil contactor.

Installer’s Instructions
Federal law requires that WINE-MATE split cooling systems be
installed by an EPA certified refrigeration technician.
1. General Instructions
WINE-MATE split system is shipped as components and is ready for use only
after a certified refrigeration technician has properly installed the system. Proper
installation is critical. Vinotemp can only warrant the quality of the components.
The installation and proper operation of the system must be warranted by the
installer. Installation of the system must be done in accordance with all state and
local building and electrical codes.
The condensing unit and evaporator unit are connected by a liquid line and an
insulated suction line that are supplied by the installer. These lines must be
properly sized for the distance between the two units. After the units and lines
are connected, the system must be checked for restriction, pressurization and
leak. Then the system must be evacuate and charged with refrigerant.
Refrigerant amount will vary depending on the length of line set.
Parts included:
Evaporator Unit (liquid line solenoid valve and expansion valve installed)
Condensing Unit (pressure control, water regulation valve, discharge and suction
valves and installed)
Liquid Filter
Liquid Indicator
Temperature Controller (4.5”LX4.5”WX3.75”D) + Air Probe
Parts not included:
Liquid line copper tubing
Suction line copper tubing

Fig. 7 Temperature Controller (4.25”L X 3.75D X 4.25”H)
2. Temperature Controller and Air Probe
1) The temperature controller can be mounted either inside or outside the wine
cellar, but the air probe must be located inside the wine cellar.
2) The air probe shall be located in the wine cellar 5 ft above the floor or the air
return area, but it shall not be located in the air supply area or other areas
where air is not circulated.
3) Air probe can be pulled out of the temperature controller around 5 ft; if
additional wires are needed, 18 gauge wires may be used to extend the air
probe.
3. Evaporator Unit Installation
1) The WM-25~65SFCR evaporator units shall be installed for rack or joist
mount with the supply air on the left front, top or side and return air on the
right front, top or side.
2) Air supply shall be unobstructed minimum 12” for a direct blow installation;
leave 2” clearance for a deflector installation; air return shall be unobstructed
minimum 6”.
3) A grille can be used to cover the supply and return with 0~2” clearance; or 2-3
ft long duct can be added.
4) There is a gravity drain system used, so the unit shall be installed level or with
a slight slope downward the drain connection and the drain line shall be
installed slope down toward the drain. If rise-up is needed, a condensation
pump must be used.
4. Condensing Unit Installation
1) Condensing unit shall be elevated to avoid possible flooding and shaded from
direct sun. The location shall be adequately ventilated and shall not be
subject to freezing temperatures.
2) Water must be supplied to WM-250~650SCU-WC at all times during
operation, with the maximum outlet temperature of 120 °F. A sufficient
- 18 -
amount of water must be provided for constant head pressure and proper
cooling, but excessive water flow will cause the unit working inefficiently.
3) The maximum permissible water pressure is 150 PSIG. If water pressure is
excessive, a pressure reducing valve must be used to reduce the water
pressure.
4) Service valve operation

6. Refrigeration Piping and Leak Testing
NOTES:
• The line connection sizes of liquid filter & indicator, the valve
connection sizes of condensing unit and the line connection sizes of
evaporator unit are not necessary the same as the listed refrigeration
line sizes.
• If the condensing unit is installed above the evaporator unit, use the
suction line one listed size smaller.
• Expansion and solenoid valves have been installed on the liquid line.
1) The installation order starts from condensing unit (including receiver and
discharge valve), liquid line filter-drier, moisture-liquid indicator, liquid line, to
evaporator unit (including liquid line connection, solenoid valve, expansion
valve, and suction line connection), returning to insulated suction line, suction
valve and then back to condensing unit.
2) If the condensing unit is located below the evaporator unit, use inverted U
trap to prevent liquid from flooding back to the compressor; if the elevation
difference is more than 10 ft or the line set exceeds 75 ft, use both inverted U
trap and suction accumulator.
3) If the condensing unit is located more than 10 ft above the evaporator unit,
use U trap to aid oil returning to the compressor.
4) Complete pipe brazing, check solenoid valve and expansion valve restrictions
and test leak.
5) Hook up the drain line and check if water drains.
6) Hook up the drain line and check if water drains.

Fig. 11 Water Regulating Valve
2) It may use a fan speed control to adjust the air flow to achieve the specified
CFM. The fan will run from the minimum speed to full speed with the control
knob at the lowest and highest speed position. To adjust the minimum speed,
turn control knob to the lowest speed position, then rotate the setting (located
on the side or front) clockwise to decrease the minimum speed or counterclockwise to increase the minimum speed. The minimum speed should be
adjusted until it supplies the required CFM.

3) The subcooling at the condensing unit shall be around 10°F. The charge may
be complete when there are no more bubbles forming in the liquid indicator.
4) Head pressure is maintained constant but will vary with the water outlet
temperature: 120 ~ 190 psig at the water outlet temperature 95 ~ 120 °F.
5) The evaporator’s constant pressure expansion valve is set around 30 ~ 35
psig (35 ~ 40°F) at factory. This pressure setting gives a dew point to
maintain the proper humidity for storing wine.
6) The temperature split across the evaporator shall be 8 ~ 10°F at 55°F wine
cellar temperature.
7) Again, you must verify if the superheat at the evaporator unit is around 9 ~
18°F at 55 °F ~ high wine cellar temperatures.

8) If the superheat is high, check the subcooling first to know if the refrigerant
charge is sufficient. If the charge is not sufficient, add more refrigerant. If the
charge is good, then increase the evaporator suction pressure by turning the
hex nut (5/16”) clockwise. Liquid must always be charged into the hide side
when the compressor runs.
9) If the superheat is low, then decrease the evaporator suction pressure by
turning the hex nut (5/16”) counter-clockwise.
10) Both discharge and suction valves must be in the back positions before
disconnecting.
11) Close all service valves and disconnect all manifolds and hoses.
