Arctic chiller products, applications and success stories.

Case Studies

Arctic Case Studies


California Data Center

A world leader in 3G, 4G and next-generation wireless technologies  wanted a solution that would lower the enormous costs associated with powering and cooling their data centers. Arctic’s industry-changing ArcticCool ACW1400GT5022 (PDF)

Condominium Cooling

Condominium Cooling

A high-rise building for million-dollar residences required small footprint, quite chillers to be installed on every third floor. Each unit required 42°F lightweight, centrifugal high-static condenser fans and remote lower controls. Arctic’s high-rise condominium chiller system solution (PDF)

Arctic Case Study: LCC Chiller Performance Hospitality Industry

Chiller Life Cycle Cost

This Life Cycle Cost  (LCC) study involved a large facility in the hospitality industry and compared the operational costs of an existing chiller against new scroll chillers, magnetic bearing oil-free chillers and water-cooled chillers. Arctic chillers outperform traditional approaches (PDF)

Arctic Case Study: Air-Cooled Chiller Changeout

Commercial Market

The commercial market demand called for a compact 100- to 125-ton air-cooled chiller that would meet performance and sustainability requirements at affordable prices. Arctic’s compact chiller, the ArcticCool ACA120AT356F (PDF)

Arctic Case Study: Military F16 Test Stand Chillers

Military F-18 Test Stand Chillers

The US Navy required 14 custom chillers to cool the test stands for F-18 Fighters deployed around the world. They must be extra rigid, reliable and secured for truck mounting and transport across various terrains, and operate in 120° ambient. Arctic’s custom-engineered solution for the U.S. Navy (PDF)

Arctic Case Study: Multiple MRI Cooling Installation

Multiple MRI Cooling Installation

A large metropolitan hospital with a high patient load required ultra-reliable cooling for multiple magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scanners. MRI cooling demands consistent performance and control, with downtime unacceptable. Arctic’s ultra-reliable MRI cooling system (PDF)

Arctic Case Study: Pharma Low-Temp Refrigeration

Pharma Low-Temp Refrigeration

A large pharmaceutical manufacturer approached the Arctic Chiller Group with these requirements: performance at minus 30°F with fluidity, seal-less magnetic pumping, and an American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) standard-compliant storage tank.  Arctic’s pharma critical-cool chiller (PDF)

Arctic Case Study: FFA Flight Data Center Cooling

Aviation Data Center Cooling

The Federal Aviation Agency (FFA) Flight Data Center in Fairbanks, Alaska, tracks all regional flights  through a large central computer that requires reliable year-round cooling even in temperatures as low as minus 50°F. Arctic’s FFA Flight Data Center chiller (PDF)

Arctic Case Study: High Power Cable Cooling

High Power Cable Cooling

Seattle Power and Light (now Seattle City Light) sought a highly reliable method for cooling high power underground cables between power stations to realize the additional energy throughput available by managing heat. Arctic’s high power cable cooling solution for Seattle Power and Light (PDF)

Arctic Case Study: Print System Cooling

Print System Cooling

Printing companies, especially those doing web printing or digital printing, require reliable cooling for their OEM equipment. As more printers move to digital, there is an increasing demand for process cooling. Arctic’s process cooling solution for printer’s OEM equipment (PDF)

Arctic Case Study: Chilling Surgical Suites

Chilling Surgical Suites

Surgeons, especially in cardiac surgical suites, require much low-er ambient temperatures in or-der to reduce patient metabolism during procedures, but typical coils and infrastructure are not designed to accommodate  these specific requirements. Arctic critical-duty chillers for imaging, blood cooling and surgical suites (PDF)

Arctic Case Study: Qwest Communications

Qwest Communications

Qwest Communications had critical switching located in neighborhoods to shorten line distance, but 30- ton loads using traditional designs produced unacceptable noise levels at night. Arctic’s ultra-low noise condensing units address Qwest’s challenge (PDF)
