Portable Water chiller, 40 GPH, portable military grade mobile, 18hp gas engine. Portable engine driven water chiller unit for cooling potable water. Unit is a self-contained cooling system which draws warm water from a storage tank and can either dispense chilled water into individual containers or dispense chilled water into another bulk tank. Could be used in small remote communities, large gatherings, festivals or anywhere else where chilled drinkable water is needed.Could also be used in concessions to make a water bath for bottled drinks instead of using ice. Chiller uses an automotive type refrigeration compressor which is driven by an 18HP twin cylinder Briggs engine. The water is forced through the system by a belt driven pump.
Warm water flows into the water chiller through a hose. In the initial starting phase, water is by-passed around the thermostatic blending valve (V4) by the "START-RUN" water control valve (V5). Once the engine is up to speed, the "START-RUN" valve is turned and water is run through the thermostatic valve.
The valve will automatically either recirculate the water to reduce the temperature, or will open and allow more warm water into the system. Cool water will be available within three minutes of starting.
Water that is not dispensed will be discharged from the recirculate port. Water comes out of the recirculate port when the dispense port is stopped(with a valve) or when the unit is in start-up mode. The chiller unit does not have an internal fuel tank, it uses a simple fuel line that drops into a regular gas jug. Unit was tested and it works well.For the test we heated a tank of water to about 88 degress. The chiller was turned on and after about three minutes cool water started filling the smaller tank.
As seen in the video the cool tank water measured about 66.5 degs, but if the probe was placed in the outlet pipe stream the temp was about 62 deg. We assume the hot asphalt quickly heated the chilled water. See the video for the actual test.
Overall this unit is in good usable condition with minor scratches and dings. There may be some more piping or fittings which would be required for a particular installation. We have more of these units in varying conditions. 34 x 26 x 24.5. 18HP Twin cylinder Briggs engine, 694 CC.40 GPH (0.7 GPM at 120 deg input). Cools 120 deg intake water to 60 deg F. 3.75lb of R-12 refrigerant. Electric start 12V or 24V or pull start.

What it means is that some of our items will be tested and will include the results in the description and others will be untested but described accurately to the extent that is possible without actually powering up the machine. In addition to this written description you will have the opportunity to view high quality photos of the item.With these two sources of information you will have as much information as possible without being physically here to inspect the machine. Feel assured that we will make a diligent effort to give you an accurate description of the equipment. The very few times we have had to deal with these issues we have been very helpful in resolving the problem.
