Smart PCB Controller

The advanced PCB controller is standard with all R Series chillers. It allows benifits such as multi-chiller control allowing redundancy, remote start / stop, performance monitoring, BMS connectivity, and a wide array of parameter control settings.


R Series chillers compressors bring you long lasting reliability and durability with exceptionally high standards of quality. R Series chillers use world leading compressor brands such as Emerson and Danfoss.

Chilled Water Circuit

R Series chillers are equipped as standard with an internal buffer tank. Internal buffer tanks ensure that temperature remains consistent under varying loads.


The stylish and practical R Series structural enclosure is robustly constructed with a rigid frame, powdercoated galvanised aluminium panels and heavy-duty castors. It is divided into two sections to ensure optimum airflow through the condensor. The R Series enclosure is designed for indoor or outdoor installation


Aqua Chiller uses a custom-designed and manufactured condenser in the R Series of chillers. The enclosure’s split design offers high efficiency by ensuring optimum airflow through the condenser. The R series uses advanced hydophilic coating on the condenser and has the option of e-coating for extreme environments. Remote condenser options available.


A range of pump options are available for the R Series chiller. All of which are sourced from highly reputable and market leading manufacturers. R Series chillers can optionally be used with an external pump if required

Optional upgrade: Advanced Chiller Monitoring Solutions

Refrigeration trouble frequently happens when no one is looking. Let’s face it, you
have better things to do. But what if modern technology could be applied to your
refrigeration system? What if you could automate the monitoring of the entire system
and have the power to know exactly what’s going on, all the time. Now you can!

Save Money

Move from reactive refrigeration maintenance (breakdown maintenance) to Reliability Centered Maintenance (RCM) with monitoring and cut cost by up to 66% per year.

Avoid Outages

Costly outages are now a thing of the past! Our monitoring system lets you know the moment your refrigeration system needs attention, well before expensive repairs, spoilage and waste occur.

Find Leaks

Leaks happen and are frequently found way too late. Replacing refrigerant is costly. With Our monitoring system you find leaks early – before they cause real trouble.

Works With All Aqua Chillers

Thanks to advances in technology, every Aqua Chiller installation, new or existing, can now be made smart.
