Arctica Features


Titanium Heat Exchanger

Exclusive titanium coil design creates maximal contact exposure.


Condenser Layout

Condenser, which is located on the front side of the chiller, draws cool air from the front and exhausts the warm air out the back. This unique placement also allows direct access to clean the condenser grill without any tools to take the chiller apart.


Energy Efficiency

Low energy consumption means lower cost. The highest BTU (British Thermal Units) heat removal capacity with the lowest AMPERAGE draw.


Fully Automated Digital Thermostat

Automatically control your temperature within +1/-1 Fahrenheit using the built-in thermostat. Includes a bright LCD that can easily be read day or night.


Least Noise and Smallest Vibration Level

You will be amazed at how uncommonly quiet this chiller is. Definitely an attractive quality for aquarists with tanks located in living rooms.


Compact Footprint

Many of the Arctica chillers are no larger than a standard desktop computer. Their compact size makes placement easy, even if you don't have a large designated area.


Side Handles

Lift and move your chiller easily using the ABS molded handles.


2 Year Warranty

Arctica Chillers are covered by a 2 year warranty, direct from the manufacturer to you.

Product Questions

What would be the proper tubing needed and the proper pump to use? Will be needing a submersible pump to go into the tank. Is there anything else needed to complete the setup?

How are these chillers vented? Do they exhaust into the room or can you vent through an outside wall?
Question by: Kevin on May 31, 2016, 4:19 PM
Great question!
These are radiant cooling and are unable to be vented to another room. Feel free to let us know if you have any further questions.
