Since 1965, GCI Refrigeration Technologies has been manufacturing water-condensing chillers for industrial cooling to contribute to the efficacy and safety of various industrial applications. Our decades of experience have given us the knowledge and expertise to help each customer find the right chiller for their needs.

Water-Condensing Chillers for Industrial Cooling

Our water-condensing chillers are ideal for facilities that require the external output of heat generated by industrial cooling processes. Using chilled water or another refrigerant, water-condensing chillers apply rapid cooling to materials and equipment that use high heat as part of their manufacturing procedures. In doing so, they're able to precisely control the temperature of the materials and machinery while containing the extreme temperatures, which leads to a more efficient process and a safer working environment for personnel.

While water-condensing chillers do require cooling towers to carry the residual heat outside of the facility, their minimal exposure to damage makes them a long-lasting and cost-effective chiller option.

Customizable Water-Condensing Chillers for Industrial Cooling

GCI Refrigeration Technologies manufactures four types of water-condensing chillers for industrial use in a wide range of applications. Each chiller is also available in models of varying sizes, dimensions, and capacities to more accurately accommodate job-specific needs. The framework of our chillers is our standard components, which we use as the foundation for each of our products.

By designing, customizing, and building water-condensing chillers for industrial cooling based on the meticulous needs of the valued customers we serve, we're able to provide them with quality, economical products that last. Contact GCI Refrigeration Technologies online or by phone today at (225) 926-6950 to request more information about our products.

Every chiller comes complete with basic features and functions, including:


GCI Refrigeration Technologies provides portable heavy-duty industrial coolers capable of reaching a low temperature of -30°F. Each of our air condensing chillers is custom-built to support your necessary applications using heavy-duty, corrosion-resistant stainless steel, with a compact design that can be easily moved with integrated casters.

Types of Air Condensing Chillers

Your chiller will be outfitted with a job-specific evaporator designed for your desired application. Options include GCI's own Coilmatic™ high-efficiency evaporator, a special low-flow evaporator, or a brazed plate evaporator.

With our unique ChillersDirect­­™ program, you'll work directly with one of our factory experts. They will help you build the ideal custom air condensing chiller for your needs, considering your applications as well as your capacity and power requirements.

Explore Low Temperature Process Chillers

At GCI Refrigeration Technologies, we offer custom, high-quality low temperature process chillers with applications in industries from scientific research to food preparation and beyond. Our products are designed for portability, ease of use, and innovative efficiency.

Heavy Duty Industrial Chilling

With temperatures reaching as low as -30°F, our water condensing and air condensing chillers provide a convenient solution for industrial needs in food, medicine, nuclear technology, and other areas. These models feature a solid steel structure with removable steel panels that facilitate hassle-free cleaning and maintenance.

You can also fit your unit with an evaporator specifically designed for your needs, with your choice of Coilmatic™ high-efficiency evaporator, a special low-flow evaporator, or a brazed plate evaporator.

Water Condensing Chillers

Industrial chillers feature a pump that moves a refrigerant from the process to the chiller, where it is transformed from a hot gas to a cool liquid. This type of chiller is fitted with a tower of cool water that in turn cools the hot refrigerant. Choose from seven water condensing chiller models with a BTU capacity ranging from 9,600 to 52,300 at the lowest temperatures of -75°F.

Air Condensing Chillers

Although the mechanisms of both types of industrial chillers are similar, air condensers rely on ambient air, located either outside the unit or within the chiller itself. This cool air cools and liquefies the refrigerant solution. Choose from nine models of air condensing chillers with BTU output ranging from 4,100 to 46,000 at the lowest temperatures.

Our clients can access free technical phone support for fast answers to operational questions. In fact, you're speaking directly to employees at the factory where the chillers are constructed.

Our Experience with Our Customers

Through our decades of experience with a diverse customer base, we've grown to both anticipate certain needs and demonstrate innovation in meeting highly specific requirements exclusive to certain industries or applications. Our cumulative process for selecting and customizing chillers accommodates a thorough approach to meeting every standard of service and quality, and our team provides qualified support through every step.

First, we work with you to determine the type of chiller you need based on your facility's processes. We manufacture durable scroll chillers, heavy-duty industrial chillers, low-temperature chillers with capacities up to -30°F, and extra-low-temperature chillers that can reach -75°F to meet an extensive range of industrial needs. Once you've determined the appropriate type for your production processes, we can assist you in choosing the appropriate model based on dimensions and output and select between an air-condensing or a water-condensing model. While all of our chillers come complete with our standard, high-quality components and state-of-the-art functions, we offer optional features for more precise efficiency. Then, your industrial chiller is built to order and delivered to your facility fully assembled and ready to install.

About GCI Refrigeration Technologies

Founded in 1958 as Peuchen, Inc. to make liquid chillers for the budding plastics industry, the company was merged into GC Industries in 1981. Today, we are a unit of Scientific Systems, the parent corporation of four companies in the HVAC and temperature control industries. We proudly serve customers throughout the United States and the globe through the design, customization, and manufacturing of our proprietary Icewagon™ industrial chillers. Our chillers are built to customer specifications and help to streamline production cooling processes, maximize personnel safety, and protect materials and equipment from damaging heat.

Industrial chillers work by refrigerating water and other coolants and pumping them through discrete manufacturing equipment. We offer both portable chillers, which are mounted on casters, and central chillers, which require fixed installation, to accommodate various industrial applications. Customers can choose between air-cooled or water-cooled chillers depending on their facility's requirements, and our chiller capacities cover a comprehensive range of temperatures. Each of our products is completely assembled and ready to install upon delivery for customer convenience. Our exceptional service, extensive customization options, and product efficiency contribute to the high level of satisfaction that helps us develop lasting relationships with our valued customers.

Air Condensing Chiller review - GCI Refrigeration Technologies


Cooling Towers:

Towers provide a means to eject heat through direct evaporation of the cooling water used in the facility. Water cascades down over a "wet deck" through which air is blown. In the process, heat from the water is rejected to the atmosphere through evaporation.

Because the process water comes in direct contact with the atmosphere, impurities can contaminate the water. Impurities already in the water become more concentrated. Regular maintenance, therefore, is very important. Cooling towers in northern climates require that a tank be installed inside the building to eliminate the possibility of water in the tower freezing, damaging the tower.

Fluid Coolers:

There are two types of fluid coolers. In both cases, the coolant from the facility is piped through a coil where its heat is ejected to the outside.

Evaporative coolers use water to dissipate the heat. Water is re-circulated in the unit, dripping across the coil containing the coolant. A fan forces fresh air up through the coil. In the process, heat is transferred from the coolant to the circulating water where it is rejected into the atmosphere through evaporation. A small amount of the cooling water is lost during evaporation and must be replenished. A heater may be required to keep the circulating water from freezing during winter. Since the coolant does not come in direct contact with the atmosphere, no contaminants enter the cooling circuit.

A dry air cooler, on the other hand, has finned coils. Here, fans mounted above the coil draw air across the coils removing the heat into the atmosphere. Dry air coolers tend to be less efficient than evaporative coolers so they require larger coils and fans. They tend to operate at higher temperatures and produce less of a temperature reduction.

In both evaporative coolers and dry air coolers, the coolant is in a closed system, so a glycol mix can be used. The coolers, however, have no tank to store the coolant when not in use, so like cooling towers, an indoor tank-pump set or pumping unit is required.


At GCI Refrigeration Technologies, designing industrial chillers to your requirements is our specialty. Using our standard components as a framework, we can help you select and personalize your chiller for meticulous application in your facility's production process.

Custom Industrial Chillers

It often takes more than a standard chiller to get the job done. That's why we offer optional features for each of our four types of industrial chillers. If a stock product just won't cut it, GCI Refrigeration Technologies is here to help you select and customize the air-condensing or water-condensing chiller that best fits your needs. You may need a custom unit if:

  • You need extra damage and corrosion resistance
  • You have an atypical installation setup or facility space
  • You need special controls, instrumentation, or electronics
  • You need components such as pumps, motors, compressors, and tanks of varying capacities
  • You have unusual temperature requirements
  • You require specific safety features
  • You need company-specified paints and finishes
