Cool-Therm offers “off-the-shelf chillers


Rob Young: “Chillers can delivered to site in a matter of days rather than months”

UK: Cool-Therm claims to be breaking the mould in the UK by offering “off-the-shelf” deliveries of certain chiller models.

By stocking popular models of its Italian-made Tonon chillers, Cool-Therm director Rob Young says that chillers can delivered to site in a matter of days rather than months.

“Traditionally, the time-frame for chiller delivery is governed by the fact that plant is normally made to order, given the scale of investment involved. This means that lead-times are usually two to three months, at best.”

“However, this can sometimes create major problems for end users who suffer unexpected and perhaps catastrophic breakdowns, when chillers can’t be repaired quickly and replacement plant is not available. This is a particular issue in relation to critical applications such as data centres, and process cooling environments where production depends on continuity of cooling.”




To meet this need, Cool-Therm is offering customers “off-the-shelf” chiller availability, believed to be a first in the UK, with immediate access to stocks of the most popular models of its Tonon chillers.

Cool-Therm says current chillers in stock will be listed on its website, permitting ordering for immediate despatch.

Tonon chillers are said to be suitable for applications requiring low sound levels, such as hospitals and educational settings. A low temperature option provides high intensity cooling for replacement applications requiring larger capacity for a given footprint, or lower temperatures for improved food hygiene in food production or catering applications.

  1. Tim Mitchell says:

    Sorry, guys, can’t let this go – not a first. Can’t speak for others, but we typically have around 50 chillers and 250 FCUs and mini AHUs always on stock and available for call-off from Rhoss
