CH Series Chiller Operator’s & Installation Manual
GENERAL INFORMATION
INTRODUCTION
The Cornelius “CH” Series Recirculating Water Chiller is designed to provide an accurate, reliable and user-friendly system for cooling a continuous flow of water and keep it at a constant temperature in various closed loop
or tank cooling applications.
The “CH” Series Chiller consists of an air--cooled refrigeration system housed in a sturdy sheet metal frame and
cabinet. A standard pump and insulated water reservoir package provides a complete liquid cooling and
circulating system.
The “CH” Series Chiller is designed to operate in a clean laboratory or industrial environment where ambient
temperatures range from 40 to100° F (5 to 38° C). With proper installation, operation and maintenance, the “CH”
Series Chiller will provide years of trouble free service.
UNPACKING AND INSPECTION
This unit was thoroughly inspected before leaving the factory and the carrier has accepted and signed for it. Any
damage or irregularities should be noted at the time of delivery and immediately reported to the carrier. Request
a written inspection report from the Claims Inspector to substantiate any necessary claims. In the event that an
immediate replacement is necessary, please contact Cornelius Chiller Sales at 1-800-551-4423.

CH Series Chiller Operator’s & Installation Manual
Figure 1. Sample Data Plate
When servicing a Cornelius Chiller, it is important to note the information contained on the data plate located in
the upper rear of the Unit.
If technical assistance is needed, the phone technician will need the Serial Number of your chiller. That information
is found on the Data Plate along with the model number, voltage requirement and refrigerant information.
The serial Number is also needed when replacement parts are being ordered or for warranty claims. See CHILLER
WARRANTY PAGE.
NOTE: Be sure to include the serial number on any documentation or billing information.
CHILLER INSTALLATION
Location of Chiller
THE CHILLER MUST BE LOCATED NEAR A PROPERLY GROUNDED ELECTRICAL OUTLET. THE CIRCUIT
SHOULD BE FUSED AND NO OTHER ELECTRICAL APPLIANCE SHOULD BE CONNECTED TO THE
CIRCUIT. ALL ELECTRICAL WIRING MUST CONFORM TO NATIONAL AND LOCAL ELECTRICAL CODES.
The chiller must be located in a well ventilated, indoor area where ambient temperatures will remain above 40° F
(5° C) and will never increase above 100° F (38° C). To obtain optimum cooling capacity, the ambient
temperature should be at or below 80° F (27° C).
It is very important that the air intake and discharge sides of the chiller are not obstructed by other free standing
objects. A minimum of two feet of space on all four sides of the chiller will be sufficient to prevent air flow obstructions.
It is also important to direct any hot air discharge from other equipment away from the air intake side of the chiller.
Condenser air entering the “CH” unit should be below 100° F (38° C).Condenser air temperatures above 100° F
(38° C) can cause the high pressure safety control to shut down the unit.
Electrical Connections
All wiring must conform to the National Electric Code and any applicable local codes. The chiller must be
permanently wired by means of electrical conduit to a properly fused disconnect of proper amperage or wired to a
properly rated power cord and plugged into an outlet with the appropriate disconnect and amperage rating. The
electrical junction box, located on the back panel of the chiller, includes a four terminal strip for power supply
connection. Refer to Figure 2 for the CH250 model and Figure 3 for the CH251 model.

START UP
WARNING: Never operate the chiller with it’s panels removed.
Always use the power switch to turn off the chiller when it is not being used.
Always ensure that all air inlets and outlets are free from obstruction.
Be sure that the reservoir is filled with fluid prior to powering up the unit (see Fluid Recommendations
page).
Process Water Flow, Units and Pump and Tank (Standard)
Follow standard plumbing practices and local codes in making water connections. The chiller inlet and outlet
connections are 1/2”. Flexible hose and fittings are recommended for plumbing the system. A No. 20 mesh strainer
should be installed on the chiller inlet to prevent foreign particles from entering the system and should be cleaned
monthly. Lines should be routed with as few bends as possible. Prevent lines from running near radiators, hot water
pipes, etc. Any lengths of tubing that are exposed to high ambient temperatures should be insulated to prevent
condensation and/or significant liquid heat loss.
After ensuring that the system is free from the obstruction, that all valves are open and the reservoir when
available is full, push the CONTROL POWER switch to the “ON” position. The pump should now be operating.
STANDARD THERMOSTAT ELIWELL IC902
The following procedure should be followed to adjust the Eliwell IC902 thermostat temperature setting:
To set the SET POINT, press and release the SET button. SET displays.
Press the SET button again, the current SET POINT is displayed. Press the UP or DOWN button to
change the SET POINT to the desired temperature.
3. Press the fnc button twice to exit the program. The current liquid temperature is displayed.
The thermostat has a range that is pre-set at the factory. The range is 40° F (5° C) to 100° F (38° C). If operation
outside of this range is required, please contact the Cornelius Technical Service Department.

CHILLER MAINTENANCE
WARNING: Disconnect electrical power to the chiller to prevent personal injury before
attempting any internal maintenance. Only qualified personnel should service the internal
components or electrical wiring.
Condenser
On air-cooled chillers, the CONDENSER FINS should be cleaned by blowing compressed air through the
condenser from the fan side. Dirt and debris accumulate on the condenser fins over time and this build up can
severely reduce the performance of the chiller. Cleaning of the CONDENSER COIL FINS should be done
approximately every three months, depending upon cleanliness of your application.
Pump Motor
The PUMP MOTOR should be lubricated with thirty drops of SAE 20 oil once a year.
Circulation System
The CIRCULATION SYSTEM should be drained and flushed periodically to avoid build up and a possible flow
restriction caused by contaminants.
