Industrial Scroll Chillers | Product Overview

​Air Cooled Screw Chiller Overview:

Our Smart Family Cooling model SSCD industrial air cooled screw chiller is built to last. This industrial chiller is used in a variety of process cooling applications. All of our SSCD air cooled screw chillers are built STANDARD with COATED plate fin condensers and stainless steel hardware in order to survive in the harshest chemical and coastal environments. Chillers range in size from 30 tons to 400 tons at ARI conditions. They are used most often in industrial applications, such as plastics extrusion cooling, injection mold cooling, plating & anodizing cooling, food process cooling, and many others. Please see our applications page for a full list of applications.

Screw Chiller for Plastics Extrusion and Injection Mold Cooling

Plastic is one of the most enduring inventions of the modern world. It’s hard to imagine our lives without it. We use plastic to eat with and to make our children’s toys — and even the precious computers we use every day have plastic components.

But before those plastics become something other than plastic, they must be shaped and cooled, either during a plastic extrusion or injection mold process. Our air-cooled chillers are the perfect machine for that job, designed as a closed-loop system to prevent any environmental debris from mixing in with the process water.

Water contamination can ruin a plastic product and is a very common problem. Our air-cooled screw chiller can save you dramatically by reducing product loss.

Screw Chiller for Plating & Anodizing Cooling

Plating — either electroplating or electroless plating — is becoming a major industry as more industries are looking for metal finishing experts to complete their products. Plating metal requires a tremendous amount of heat, which you then must remove. You need strong industrial screw chillers for that kind of job, which is just what we provide.

Our 30-ton air-cooled screw chiller is just what you need for anodizing applications. Even if you find your current cooling method is working, we are confident you will find using our industrial screw chillers for your cooling needs will be far more convenient and efficient.

Screw Chiller for Food Process Cooling

When making food for human consumption, keeping your food products free from bacteria or other contaminants that could poison those who consume it is the number-one priority. A few people getting sick could ruin a food processing business, let alone if something worse happens. One of the best ways to prevent food from going bad is to control the temperature, as most bacteria cannot survive in extremely low temperatures.

A 30-ton air-cooled screw chiller from Smart Family Cooling is exactly what you need to make sure your food stays as cold as it needs to be through your process so it comes out suitable for delivery and consumption by your customers.

Chillers for School Districts

Although most Smart Family equipment is used for industrial applications, we still have the ability to service other areas including school districts. Industrial chillers typically last much longer than standard commercial chillers, so customers get the benefit of extended product lifespans. Pairing these chillers with Building Management Systems to monitor the equipment effectively.
