Cyclone® Drop-In Chillers

Easy installation anywhere!

Aqua Logic’s Cyclone® water chiller revolutionized the industry in 1992 with the introduction of the first helical drop in TITANIUM coil. Installs in any tank in just minutes! Simply drop the coil in a sump or directly in the tank and turn it on to start chilling; no plumbing required. With proper circulation around the coil they are as efficient as our inline style chillers. Known for their quality craftsmanship and exceptional performance they quickly became the industry standard for the drop-in style chiller that all other brands have tried to achieve.

1/4- ½ Hp

  • No plumbing required; drop titanium coil directly in tank or sump
  • Maintains water temperatures in the range of 50° – 80°F (*see specifications)
  • Oversized helical titanium coil in the heat exchanger maximizes BTU transfer efficiency.
  • TITANIUM is the only heat exchanger material proven to be 100% fish and coral safe in saltwater systems.
  • Quiet, internal, spring mounted hermetic motor/compressor provides years of reliable service.
  • Low profile and compact design allows for easy placement in tight places.

Applications:

  • Living Exhibits
  • Research
  • Lobster and Seafood Holding tanks
  • Hydroponics
  • Home Aquariums
  • Cold plunge tubs
  • Animal hydrotherapy

System Requirements:

  • Cyclone drop in chillers require that the coil always be completely immersed in water with adequate water flow.
  • Observe min/max flow rates critical to chiller operation in ‘Specifications’ table
  • Chiller unit must not be placed in a confined space, as restricted air flow will limit the efficiency and lifespan. Do not restrict airflow by placing unit in a cabinet or closet.
  • A Cold Water Cap Tube (CWCT) is required for desired water temps between 50-65F on available models. Standard units operate in the range of 65-85 F. Call to order.

    Use the tables below to determine the appropriate Cyclone Chiller model for your application.

    Please note that the tables make the following assumptions;

    • Calculations based on a closed recirculating system with chiller running full time.
    • Calculations based on a simple system with one pump, 3x per hour water turnover rate, and fluorescent lighting.
    • Do not take into account, multiple pumps, protein skimmers, high intensity lighting, or other such variables.

    *Add “CWCT” (cold water cap tube) to model # for desired water temps between 50-65F on available models.

    Standard

    • Ideal for tropical aquariums and warm water exhibits, or research applications.
    • Capillary tube size allows a fixed amount of refrigerant to enter the titanium coil of the heat exchanger.
    • Amount of refrigerant does not need to change since the water temperature is being maintained at a constant.

    ‘CWCT’ (Cold Water Cap Tube)

    • Allows for a lower, but more limited temperature range.
    • Ideal for bait fish holding, temperate fish exhibits, and hydroponics.
    • Capillary tube size allows a fixed amount of refrigerant to enter the titanium coil of the heat exchanger.
    • Amount of refrigerant does not need to change since the water temperature is being maintained at a constant.
