Mokon Introduces Iceman SM Series Of Modulating Portable Chillers



BUFFALO, N.Y. –   Mokon announces the introduction of the Iceman SM Series, a new line of high-efficiency modulating chillers available in capacities from 5 to 15 Hp. The Iceman SM Series of green-friendly portable chillers utilizes the Copeland Scroll Digital compressor, capable of providing variable capacity output from 10% to 100% by axially separating internal scroll members. A controlled amount of discharge gas is bypassed for a varying amount of time, resulting in a reduction of compressor output that conserves energy while maintaining temperature stability.


The Copeland Scroll Digital compressor operates in two phases, a loaded phase and an unloaded phase, depending on load demand requirements.  In the loaded phase, the bypass solenoid valve is closed and the compressor operates like a standard scroll and delivers full capacity.


In the unloaded phase, the bypass solenoid valve is opened, resulting in minimal or no capacity through the compressor.  Reduced compression in the unloaded phase consumes significantly less energy, which leads to a reduction of compressor energy as compared to traditional portable chillers that use hot gas bypass for capacity modulation. This exact delivery of compressor capacity will ensure very tight operation and control of the refrigeration circuit and compressor operation for longer compressor life and increased accuracy in process fluid delivery temperatures. Higher energy-efficiency savings can be achieved when integrated with electronic refrigeration components.


Compressors are available for use with R-407C environmentally friendly refrigerants and fluid operating temperature capabilities of 20°F to 65°F (-7°C to 18°C) operation.


Additional features of the Iceman SM Series modulating chillers include:


  • Insulated non-ferrous plumbing and components

  • Air- and water-cooled condensing

  • Microprocessor-based electronic controller

  • Efficient brazed plate evaporator

  • Heavy duty insulated tank

  • Stainless steel centrifugal supply pump

  • NEMA rated electrical enclosure with safety door disconnect switch

  • UL 508A labeled electrical sub-panel

  • NFPA 79 electrical safety standards


For over 55 years, Mokon has set the standard for high quality circulating liquid temperature control systems. Through the development of new products, refinement of existing designs, and our ability to create custom engineered solutions, Mokon has consistently demonstrated its ability to foresee the evolving needs of customers in plastics processing, packaging, converting, composites, food processing, medical/pharmaceutical, chemical processing, rubber, printing, general processing and many more industries. The company’s product line has grown significantly since it first introduced a water temperature control system in 1955 to include heat transfer oil systems, portable and central chillers, pump tanks, cooling towers, blown film coolers, cold climate coolers, engineered and pre-engineered control panels, maintenance products and custom designed/engineered systems.


Mokon proudly designs and manufactures its circulating liquid heating and chilling equipment in the USA.
