Ultimate Portable Air Cooled Chiller Buying Guide: How to Choose Your Portable Air Cooled Chiller

Why Do We Need Portable Air Cooled Chiller?

The term portable air cooled chiller refers to any chiller system that contains all of the necessary components – the refrigeration circuit, the reservoir, and the pump or pumps – within a single footprint.

The controls of a portable air-cooled chiller are integrated to include all motor starters and require a single point electrical connection.

All portable air chillers are PLC controlled equipped with self-diagnostics and WIFI/LAN/LTE connectivity for the TopChiller predictive maintenance providing email/text notifications for predictive maintenance milestones, technical alarms, fault codes, and alerts to nearly eliminating downtime.

Portable air-cooled chillers are cooling systems that can be commonly found in a variety of facilities including factories, industrial applications, corporate events, arenas, hotels, hospitals, warehouses and so forth.

Basically, portable air cooled chillers can be divided into two categories: stationary and portable.

Portable air-cooled chillers are the most popular compared to other types of chillers if we need chillers for small loads, temporary, test and emergency applications as portable chillers are compact, highly efficient, easy for installation and removal.

To put it simply, portable air-cooled chillers can help keep systems or devices cool.

Over-discharged heat will slow down the operation of the machines, create more useless materials, and, consequently, produce smaller profit margins.

A portable air chiller will transfer wasted heat and keep the equipment operating smoothly, even when temperatures are high.

How Does a Portable Air Cooled Chiller Work?

Let’s have a look at the below video of the portable air-cooled chiller to get a general idea about this kind of chiller.

There is an evaporator in a portable air-cooled chiller that can absorb the heat from chilled water.

The vapor created during the absorption is taken away by the compressor where the vapor is pressurized and heated.

Then, the vapor is pumped into the condenser by the compressor. Eventually, the vapor pushes the heat out of the device.

Due to pressurization and cooling, the refrigerant moves in cooled tubes where its temperature is reduced.

Eventually, the refrigerant goes back over the chilled tubes and absorbs more heat and this makes the whole procedure become a cycle, thus providing continuous cooling from a portable air-cooled chiller.


From the above explanation, we can have a general idea of working diagram of portable air cooled chiller.

What Is a Portable Air Cooled Chiller Composed Of?

A portable air cooled chiller consists of a compressor, evaporator, condenser, throttle device, water pump, water tank, electronic controlling system, cooling fans, etc.

In this part, we will elaborate on some key components of a portable air-cooled chiller.

Compressor: The compressor of portable air-cooled chillers is the refrigeration power of the whole chiller and its function is to compress the gas from low temperatures into high temperatures and then exchange heat with other media in the heat exchanger.

Scroll Compressor

Evaporator: If it is a portable air-cooled packaged chiller, the evaporator is generally a water tank coil evaporator.

Some customers also use a plate-exchange evaporator according to their needs. Its function is to harness liquid low-temperature refrigerant to evaporate at low pressure, convert it into steam and absorb the heat of the cooling medium to realize cooling.

Chiller Evaporator

Condenser: Its function is to cool down the refrigerant steam released from the compressor into a liquid or gas-liquid mixture.

The heat discharged by the refrigerant in the condenser is carried away by air.

This is a space where the refrigerant exchanges the heat and finishes the transfer.

Air cooled condenser

Thermal Expansion Valve:

The thermal expansion valve is another important refrigeration part for a portable air cooled chiller.

A thermal expansion valve, often abbreviated as TEV, is a component in a portable air-cooled chiller that controls how much the refrigerant is unleashed into the evaporator and keeps the heat at a stable level.

The value makes sure that the refrigerant becomes vapor after leaving the evaporator, and, at the same time, the value provides sufficient liquid refrigerant to the evaporator’s coils, thereby achieving heat exchange at a better rate.

Thermal expansion valve

Water Pump: The water pump is designed to increase the pressure and the flow of the chilled water in a closed space.

The water pump must be configured properly to achieve the desired outcome.

Insufficient pressure and flow will not produce enough cooling and even worse, more heat will be generated due to the high cooling load.

However, if there is no control of speed, excess pressure and flow will make the electrical system be under a heavy burden, and as a result, the electricity is wasted due to excess pumping.

Water pump

Water storage tank: A water tank is used to increase the system’s capacity and stabilize water temperatures within the chiller.

It’s usually made of stainless steel and a buffer tank is needed if more storage is required to deal with peak loads or in scenarios where the demand exceeds the cooling capacity of the chiller system to better ensure the day-to-day operation of the system.

water tank

Electronic Control System:

The role of a control panel for a portable air cooled chiller is to control the values and other devices in the system as well as monitor the operation status during the procedure.

Electrical control

Exhaust fan: An exhaust fan is a device equipped with one or more blades to propel the airflow over the portable air-cooled chiller.

Fans help to force out the extra hot fumes and make room for clean air to create a more comfortable working environment for the equipment.

Good quality air-cooled chiller fans can greatly improve thermal efficiency.

Various Applications of Portable Air Cooled Chillers

The standard TopChiller® portable chiller offering includes portable air-cooled chillers ranging from 1 to 150 tons in capacity.

Portable air-cooled chillers are easy to use and easy to maintain, which makes them the preferred choice for companies everywhere.

Portable Air Cooled Chillers are used in a variety of industries. Here are some examples that portable air-cooled chillers are used:

HVAC. Heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) chillers offer cooling water for industrial and commercial systems.

An HVAC chiller is composed of a compressor, condenser, thermal expansion valve, evaporator, etc.

There will be a high pressure created when the refrigerant is compressed.

The thermal expansion valve transfers the refrigerant into the evaporator and converts the warm liquid to gas which is cool and dry.

Portable air-cooled chillers are widely used in the HVAC industry.



Thermoforming is an industrial process where plastic materials are heated to a perfect forming temperature.

And the plastic materials are formed to a specific shape in a mold, and after the trimming, a usable product will be created.

If we do not control the process temperature, it may lead to defects on the products such as roughness and bubbles, and even dimensional instability.

Only by keeping the thermoforming machines at a standard temperature, it is possible to guarantee the quality of the finished products.

Therefore, a portable chiller is a must in this thermoforming process.

What Makes Portable Air Cooled Chillers Different from Stationary Air Cooled Chillers?

Industrial businesses use either air-cooled chiller or water-cooled chillers to achieve the cooling effect.

When it comes to air-cooled chillers, we will divide them into stationary air-cooled chillers and portable air-cooled chillers.

So what’s the difference between the two?

Portable Air Cooled Chiller

In fact, both kinds of air chillers are composed of the same components and work based on the same working principle, except the portable air cooled chiller is smaller.

For stationary air-cooled chillers, they have better cooling capacities as they are bigger in size. However, portable air-cooled chillers can be installed in a small space, which means there is no need for a large room.

This makes portable air-cooled chillers a great solution for temporary cooling.


Select the Right Portable Air Cooled Chiller for Your Business

As portable air-cooled chillers are available for easy and quick installation and removal, how can we select the right portable chiller for our business?

Compact, highly efficient portable chillers are capable of fitting in very tight spaces and can be used to provide cooler temperatures in locations where stationary cooling systems have not been able to be installed.

There are many kinds of portable air-cooled chillers in the marketplace. When buying a portable air-cooled chiller, we always need to look at the following points.


An excellent portable air-cooled chiller should be able to deliver the optimum performance at its either part-load or full-load status, which will help cut the operation costs to the lowest level.

Portable Air-Cooled Chiller

There are some basic aspects that need to assess before we judge whether the unit is efficient or not.
We can check if the sound of the fans.

If the portable air cooled chiller operates and produces too much noise, the unit cannot be defined as efficient.

However, if the propeller fans can perform at the low sound level, then that chiller deserves our attention.

The fans in TopChiller® portable air-cooled chillers are low in sound and they operate smoothly with little vibration and this makes the air chillers suitable for sound-sensitive workplaces.



Performance is the factor we always need to take into account when we are purchasing mobile phones, tablets, or household goods. Chillers are no exception.

Across a wide range of chillers, all kinds of chillers are designed to operate under certain temperatures, from the lowest temperature to the highest temperature.

In addition, the cooling capacity is also a factor that reflects the performance of a chiller. It usually ranges from dozens to hundreds (tons).

TopChiller® has designed a series of portable air-cooled chillers whose cooling capacities range from 1.5KW to 168KW. TopChiller® is capable of producing chillers in other ranges based on customers’ needs.



If your company has a budget for chillers, there is a key factor that you cannot avoid paying attention to affordability.

The sales prices of products or services in the marketplace are mainly affected by building rent, labor costs, and operating costs.

Therefore, never say a product or service is better because it is more expensive. We have to look at the products or services themselves.

If you are selecting a portable air-cooled chiller, here is a tip. Don’t choose based on price. Choose based on its seller and performance.

If you compare the performance between the two sellers, you will know which one is better.

TopChiller® portable air-cooled chillers not only excel in terms of performance but are at low prices as well, this is the reason why TopChiller® has maintained a foothold in the industry over nearly two decades.



The durability of a portable air-cooled chiller is mostly decided by its key components. Top-quality components can guarantee durability and ensure a long product life.

If the equipment is in poor condition and requires constant maintenance, it will heavily affect the industrial operation and increase the business costs.

TopChiller® has long-term partnerships with several world-class brands for key chiller components. We source condensers from Danfoss, Sanyo, Panasonic, and so forth.

We don’t just offer one brand; instead, our chillers are made from the biggest and best brands.


Quality and Warranty
