The Fully Ducted Extreme series is our highest end, professional series cooling unit utilizing state of the art, high quality components. The system is designed for Powerful operation, efficiency, high-reliability and longevity. The Extreme Series provides excellent performance in a wide range of working environments. These units can be positioned up to 25 ducted feet from the cellar, creating a noise-free cellar environment. This series features an advanced liquid temperature controller with a remote LED display (which can be placed up to 300 line feet from the unit) and an electronic thermostat. This provides many installation options, allowing you to not only put the unit in more remote areas of the home but to also have full control of where the exhaust air vents to.
Superior Operating Flexibility:
- In hotter climates where outside temperatures can be over 110°F.
- In cold climates where winter prevents the units from operating effectively.
- In limited spaces where ventilation is a problem.
- Perfect for ducting and installed into a remote installation.
- The Fully Ducted Extreme Series wine cellar cooling units are designed to operate effectively in environmental conditions that cause traditional cooling units to fail.
- Built-in Humidity Option adds moisture to dry wine cellar enviornments.
High Quality Components:
- Heavy duty coils
Custom made coils have been designed to maximize efficiency within the space available. The coated evaporator coil will assure a long life against any corrosive environments such as the acidic CO2 gases given off during the barrel aging process of making wine.
- Advanced blower system
Extensive research has been made to source the best possible fan systems for moving air effectively around a cellar and through a duct system in order to maximize performance. These blowers have undergone extensive testing to assure they will stand up in the long run.
- High efficiency refrigerant metering system
Most refrigeration equipment comes with a set system for metering refrigerant based on the environment the unit is designed to operate within. Our system adjusts to the demand of the environment it is working within resulting in superior performance and longevity.
Sophisticated Electronic Control System
The control system is designed to maximize efficiency by constantly monitoring the performance of the unit and make adjustments as needed to the changing environmental factors which can adversely affect the unit's performance.
- Temperature Control System
The thermostat control system features heavy duty circuitry which stands up to power surges which can damage the system. The thermostat also features our liquid measuring probe which senses the actual wine temperature to maximize efficiency. The thermostat is preset from the factory to 55°F, but can be adjusted to any temperature between 50°F and 65°F. The digital read-out displays the temperature in either Fahrenheit or Celsius (for our international customers).
- Safety Mode Indicator
If the cooling unit activates one of the safety features in order to protect the system from damage or failure, a red indicator light will illuminate on the control panel. This is designed to notify the owner that a detail associated with the proper installation of the unit may have been overlooked or that a discrepancy within the current set up exists. To reset, turn the power "OFF" and then back "ON".
Designed for High reliability and longevity
- High Pressure Shut Off
The automatic high pressure shut off feature is designed to protect the compressor from excessive heat and subsequent damage. This protects the system in instances where there is obstructed air flow as a result of dirty filters, kinked ducting, or inadequate ventilation.
- Low Ambient Control System
This will allow the system to operate in cold environments where the exhaust portion (backside of the unit) is going to be exposed to air temperatures as low as 0°F. The controls allow the cooling unit to build up the appropriate pressure and heat needed to operate effectively.
- Anti-frost Control
This control feature will allow the unit to operate at maximum efficiency as the cellar cools to the appropriate set temperature. Therefore cooling the cellar as quickly and effectively as possible while maintaining the appropriate humidity levels without frosting up the evaporator coil.
Advantages of a Self Contained System
There are several advantages in selecting a self contained unit for cooling your wine cellar.
- Easy Installation
This system does not require installation by a professional refrigeration technician. Therefore, installation costs are reduced.
- Eliminates Complications
The need to run tubing through the house and the potential for leaks to occur at the fittings is eradicated.
- Easy Maintenance
Just vacuum coils and change filters (see page 31 of owner's manual).
Excellent Performance in a Wide Range of Installation Environments
