WARNING: Hazardous substance
When burned, Freon R22 refrigerant forms
Phosgene gas. If the chiller is placed in the
vicinity of equipment with combustible systems,
the combustion air intake must be ducted in
from the outside and sealed in such a manner
as to prevent any refrigerant from entering the
combustion chamber. Refer to the Material
Safety Data Sheet for Freon R22 included in the
appendix. This sheet explains the potential hazards and how to avoid them.

WHAT IS THE
PORTABLE
CHILLER?
The Conair Portable Chillers provide self-contained sources of
chilled water and are available in either water- or air-cooled
models with ranges from 1.5 Hp to 30 Hp (approximate
capacities of 1.5 tons to 30 tons of refrigeration). Pump selections are available to match most process flow and pressure
requirements.
The normal temperature range of discharge chilled water is
20°F to 70°F (7°C to 21°C). For applications requiring 40°F
and lower mix glycol with the water to the correct percentage.
Conair Portable Chillers are designed to provide chilled fluid
for industrial applications requiring 24-hour-a-day performance. Units are totally self-contained for easy, economical
installation. All parts wetted by the process are non-ferrous.
To operate, simply connect the power source, process piping
and fill with water or with industrial grade ethylene glycol or
propylene glycol (but not automotive antifreeze).
These chillers are ideal for machine-side cooling to maintain
process temperatures in an injection molding machine or
extruder and wherever you need a small, moveable cooling
unit. Nominal capacities range from 1.44 to 30 tons for the
water-cooled models and 1.18 to 30 tons for the air-cooled
models. Capacities are based on standard pump sizes and
delivering 50°F (10°C) water.
Operation of these units differ only in the medium used to
remove heat from the refrigerant in the condensers. Watercooled models use 85°F (29°C) or lower cooling water from a
tower, well, or city service; air-cooled models use 95°F
(35°C) maximum ambient air; and high ambient models use
120°F (49°C) maximum ambient air.
Choose Water-cooled Portable Chillers where tower water or
another inexpensive water source is available. Choose Aircooled models for maximum portability of the unit or if water
is unavailable.
Brazed plate condensers are standard equipment on all watercooled models. Air-cooled models use copper-fin tube condensers.
All standard voltages are available.

DESCRIPTION
Portable Chillers
UGH024/1103
The Conair Portable Chillers can be used anywhere a reliable
source of process cooling water - with stable temperature control - is required.
TYPICAL
APPLICATIONS
These portable chillers are available for cooling injection
molding, blow molding, thermoforming, extrusion, air compressors, metal plating, anodizing, degreasing, heatset/web
offset printing presses, and dryer after-coolers.
Roll the air-cooled model next to the heat source, connect it,
and plug it in. They can operate almost anywhere.
The water-cooled models require a source of condenser water.
Normally used in conjunction with a recirculating evaporative
cooling tower system, the units have slightly better operating
energy efficiencies.
Conair Portable Chillers are designed to provide chilled water
for industrial applications requiring 24-hour-a-day performance. Units are self-contained and easy to install and maintain. Choose the Conair Portable Chillers based on the cooling
load and the capacity of the unit. Pick your Conair Portable
Chillers based on:
LIMITATIONS
l Cooling load
Choose a portable chiller that has 10% more capacity
than the process load.
l Location
Choose a water-cooled model if the unit will be located
in an air-conditioned area. Choose the water-cooled
model if a source of condenser water is readily available
(i.e. cooling tower water). Do not locate the portable
chiller outside unless the unit is specially modified.
l Temperature
The portable chiller needs to provide a cooling temperature less than 70°F (21°C).
Use this information as a general guide. Consult your Conair
representative for assistance when choosing a Conair Portable
Chiller.

Refrigerant circulation
HOW
IT WORKS:
WATER-COOLED PORTABLE CHILLERS
1
The evaporator extracts heat from the process fluid, causing the refrigerant to vaporize (evaporate) into a gas.
2
Vaporized refrigerant travels from the evaporator to the
compressor, where the low pressure vapor is compressed
into a high-pressure, high-temperature vapor.
3
The high-pressure, high-temperature vapor from the condenser to the receiver.
4
The high pressure vapor travels from the condenser to
the receiver. Water tower or city water removes heat from
the vapor, condensing it to a high-pressure liquid.
5
High-pressure liquid is metered back to the evaporator by
the expansion valve (TXV), changing it to a low-pressure,
low-temperature liquid.

CHECKING
REFRIGERANT
CHARGE
All chillers are fully charged with refrigerant at the factory.
Your chiller’s model nameplate identifies the type and amount
of total refrigerant charge required.
Check refrigerant charge while the chiller is running. Check
the refrigerant charge through the sight glass. For watercooled models open the side panel for a short period of time
(15 seconds maximum) and check the sight glass; for aircooled models, locate the sight glass through the wire mesh
side panel. Use a flashlight, if necessary, and check the sight
glass:
l Under full load conditions, the refrigerant should be
clear (no bubbles).
l Under low load conditions, when the hot-gas bypass
valves are operating, bubbles may be visible in the
sight glass. This is normal.
If the charge is low and the unit is under warranty, contact
Conair service. Otherwise have a local, certified refrigeration
technician add refrigerant to the system.
WARNING: Refrigerant hazard
Only certified refrigerant technicians should
examine and correct problems involving the
refrigerant circuit.
WARNING: Hazardous substance

STOPPING THE
PLC CHILLER
To stop the chiller, press the Stop Chiller button on the control
panel.
The compressor shuts off after a pumpdown and the pump
shuts off 10 seconds later. This allows the chiller to pump
down the refrigerant system and store the refrigerant in the
receiver (water-cooled models) or condenser (air-cooled models. This prolongs the life of the compressor.
NOTE: If you want to restart the chiller immediately after
stopping it, pressing the Run arrow on the display starts the
pump (the Process Pump light on the control panel lights) but
the compressor will not turn on for three minutes. After three
minutes the compressor turns on and the Compressor light on
the control panel lights. This allows Compressors internal
temperatures to lower, making restart easier, and prolonging
the life of the compressor.
If the chiller is not working properly at any time, stop the
chiller and refer to the Troubleshooting section. If you do not
encounter any problems, proceed to the Operation section.

chiller is now ready to accept a setpoint and begin operation.
Setpoint
The Setpoint menu only has one parameter, which is the setpoint. This setpoint temperature is the water temperature that
is required to be supplied by the chiller. The setpoint range of
the chiller is 20°F - 65°F, however the standard settings will
only allow the operator to set as low as 45°F. If a temperature
lower than 45°F is required the low setpoint limit (LtS) and
the low setpoint alarm (SPL) must be adjusted accordingly.
These parameters are discussed in later pages. Additionally, an
industrial Glycol will need added to chilled water solution to
prevent freezing. See Chart in Filling the Chiller, Section 3.

The controller has three pre-configured tuning parameter sets,
one of which should allow optimum temperature control.
Following is a description of each of the choices available to
an operator:
Slow Responding system:
Select the slow setting “SLO” for large systems*. More than
1,700 pounds (200 gallons) of water and more than 14,000
lbs of steel might be considered a large system. This setting
has the smallest proportional band (1ºF), which allows larger
changes in the control output when the process temperature is
far from setpoint. This should reduce cycling around the setpoint.
Normal Responding System:
Normal “nOr” is the factory default tuning setting, as it will
cover the majority of applications. This setting is appropriate
for systems* with 250 to 1,700 pounds (30-200 gallons) of
water and 2,000 to 14,000 pounds of steel. The default value
for the normal proportional band is 2ºF.

Fast Responding System:
Select the fast setting “FSt” for small systems*. Less than 250
pounds of water (30 gallons) and 2,000 pounds of steel might
be considered a small system. This setting has the largest proportional band (4ºF), which allows a fast response to small
deviations between the process variable and setpoint. This
system is typical for small chillers with small molds or other
process machinery. If improperly set up, the configuration
might cause oscillation around the setpoint temperature.

software that has been downloaded into the controller. This
number will be a paramount importance in obtaining service
support. EX CØ1 is version 01 of the chiller program.
Alarm Stage
When the controller senses an alarm, the specific alarm flashes alternating with the actual process variable on the display.
These alarms must be cleared when a safe condition exists. In
addition when a power up condition exists the display will
flash RST to alert the operation that the controller must be
reset before operation can continue/begin.
The final area that informs the user is the alarm stage. All
alarms are indicated by flashing “on” LED.
There are three types of alarms that are resident in the controller.
First type of Alarm
First is the annunciating cycling type. This alarm will flash its
code opposite to the process variable but does not shut the
compressor down. These alarms are:
DtA: The deviation from setpoint alarm energizes when the
displayed temperature is above or below the setpoint by more
than the deviation temperature setting (dT) and for longer than
the deviation temperature ignore time(dtt).
TAH: This is a warning alarm only and will flash when the
process temperature gets above this alarm setting (htA).
Second type of Alarm
Second type annunciating type will cycle three times in one
hour before latching and requiring reset. The low refrigerant
pressure alarm PAL is this type of alarm. The bell and strobe
will energize while the system is in low pressure but turn off
when the pressure switch is satisfied.

Third type of Alarm
Third type of alarm is a latching type. This alarm shuts down
the compressor on t he first trip and must be manually reset
upon correction of the fault condition. This high pressure and
sensor failure alarms are of this type.
The indicators that flash when the unit is in alarm are:
RSt: Flashes on restoration of power after a power loss.
PSH: Flashes on the Refrigerant high-pressure switch. This is

WARNING: Hazardous substance
When burned, Freon R22 refrigerant forms
Phosgene gas. If the chiller is placed in the
vicinity of equipment with combustible systems,
the combustion air intake must be ducted in

Check refrigerant charge while the chiller is running. Check
the refrigerant charge through the sight glass. Use a flashlight,
if necessary, and check the liquid-line sight glass:
l
Under full load conditions, the refrigerant should
be clear (no bubbles).
l Under low load conditions, when the hot-gas
bypass valves are operating, bubbles may be visible in
the sight glass. This is normal.
If the charge is low and the Chiller is under warranty, contact
Conair service; or have a local, certified refrigeration technician add refrigerant to the system.

The 7.5 HP and larger compressors have a High Temperature
Protector Module to protect the compressor from high internal
temperatures, overcurrent conditions and phase imbalance. On
single compressor systems (and dual compressor systems with
only one compressor enabled), when the normally closed contact opens, it shuts off the compressor immediately and the
contact remains open for 30 minutes. The PLC indicates
"Comp 1 Rotation Error" on single compressor systems and
for compressor 1 on dual compressor systems. A fault on compressor 2 on a dual compressor system displays "Comp 2
Rotation Fault". When the contact closes and the fault is
acknowledged, the compressor will restart. On dual compressor units, if the lead compressor's Protector Module contact
opens, the lag compressor becomes the lead compressor and
the alarm is displayed. When the 30-minute delay has expired
and the alarm is acknowledged, the compressor that had faulted remains the lag compressor. If the lag compressor's
Protector Module contact opens, the compressor shuts off and
the alarm is initiated. This alarm can be cleared after the 30minute delay and the alarm is acknowledged.
To clear the alarm(s) press and hold the Shift button for three
seconds. To start the chiller once the 3-minute compressor
down time has expired, press the Run button on the Run
