Iceman SM Series
Mokon’s high-efficiency Iceman SM Series modulating portable chillers are available in air-cooled and water-cooled condensing models utilizing Copeland’s digital scroll compressors. This scroll compressor design is capable of providing variable capacity output from 10% to 100%. A controlled amount of discharge gas is bypassed for a varying amount of time, resulting in a reduction of compressor output that conserves energy while maintaining temperature stability.
The scroll compressor operates in one of two phases, depending on load demand requirements: Loaded Phase – The bypass solenoid valve is closed and the compressor operates like a standard scroll and delivers full capacity. Unloaded Phase – The bypass solenoid valve is opened, resulting in minimal or no capacity through the compressor. Reduced compression in the unloaded phase consumes significantly less energy when compared to traditional portable chillers that use hot gas bypass for capacity modulation.
