  • Self-contained 2 ton 15200 BTU wine cooling unit can cool an enclosure up to 5500 cubic feet
  • Uses water instead of air to cool the condenser, requiring no outside venting or cool air to the unit
  • Water-cooled units are ideal for most high-rise apartment complexes, restaurants, or country clubs
  • Physically the same size as the standard air-cooled Wine Guardian model
  • Designed with a lightweight, corrosion-resistant, all aluminum outer body with black finish
An alternative to the self-contained air-cooled Wine Guardian unit is the self-contained water-cooled Wine Guardian system. Water- cooled units are ideal for most high-rise apartment complex applications where most have chiller or cooling towers as part of the building mechanical system. Another application would be restaurants or country clubs that have the ability to tie the system into the dishwashing system.

The water-cooled Wine Guardian is physically the same size as the standard air-cooled model but requires no airflow across its condenser. The unit uses water instead of air to cool its condenser, therefore no outside venting or cool air to the unit is required for operation. The system only uses water when there is a call for cooling. When the temperature in the wine cellar is satisfied the compressor and water shut off. The water-cooled Wine Guardian requires two water connections, one (1) in, one (1) out, primary power, drain and wine room side ductwork connections.

Wine Guardian is the only system which incorporates cooling, heating, filtration, humidification, ducting, internal safety devices and low ambient control as integrated solutions. It is the only unit capable of multiple installation configurations - thru-wall (flush, fully recessed or semi-recessed), remote mount, indoor or outdoor. It is the only unit capable of ducting on both the evaporator and condenser side. Made in the USA. 24/7 hotline for information and assistance.

  • Estimated Room Size: up to 5500 cubic feet

  • Multiple supply and return air ports
  • Multiple-panel design for easy service access
  • ETL and CSA Approved
  • Wall-mounted thermostat

  • Cabinet - The cabinet and access doors are constructed of aluminum with a powder coated finish for corrosion protection and an attractive, maintenance free appearance. Areas in contact with cold temperatures are lined with insulation to prevent condensation
  • Electrical Controls - Most of the electrical components and controls are located in a separate area accessible through the condenser section. All wiring is in accordance with the National Electrical Code. Wires are numbered and color coded to match the wiring diagrams.
  • Factory Tested - All Wine Guardian units are factory run-tested and checked for operational performance.
  • Humidity Option - The optional humidifier comes fully assembled and tested for field installation onto the Wine Guardian without any additional electrical power wiring. It automatically adds moisture into the cellar by the evaporation of water over a distribution pad. A cellar mounted digital electronic humidistat automatically controls the amount of moisture added.
  • Interal Drain Trap - Water condensate from the evaporator coil fills the trap and forms a seal to prevent air from being drawn back through the drain tube. This allows the drain pan to drain freely. No external trap ix required.
  • Refrigerant Circuit - The factory charged circuit includes a thermal expansion valve with an external eqaulizer, slight glass with moisture indicator, a filter dryer, an automatic low pressure switch, and a manually reset high pressure switch. For the low ambient option, an automatic pressure switch controls the operation of the condenser blower and a heating element is added to the compressor oil reservoir.
  • Supply / Return Grilles - Powder-coated steel single direction grilles are provided for the inlets to the evaporator and condenser sections. One grille is provided on an outlet. These are readily interchangeable with access doors to control and direct the airflow. These grilles many be used in the room on the end of the ducts in the ducted systems.

What are the advantages of external ducting?

  • Lower sound levels
  • Virtually no vibration in the cellar
  • Better air distribution and temperature control
  • Flexibility of where to locate the unit
  • Ability to exhaust the excess heat and/or recapture and redirect for energy conservation
  • Greater flexibility in cellar design
  • Easier to service

All aluminum frame and external construction , powder coated

  • Prevents corrosion and rust

Greater installation flexibility and ease at lower installed cost

  • Only cooling units capable of being located inside, thru-the-wall, outside or remote from the cellar - surface mounted, recessed or semi-recessed, or ducted
  • Hang from ceiling, sit on floor or platform or shelf
  • Multiple discharge (supply) duct connections on both cool and heat exhaust side
  • Totally self-contained. No need to run refrigerant piping or install separate condensing unit. Requires only one electrical power connection.
  • Reliable alternative to large, expensive split systems and small, cranky through-wall systems
  • Remote thermostat and humidistat with 50' wiring for better control options

Greater accessibility

  • Easily removable panels without removing cooling unit from the wall

Professional quality

  • Built to highest safety standards and ETL tested according to UL & CSA standards
  • only units with commercial grade components like a refrigerant sight glass, filter-dryer and high and low pressure limit switches to protect the major components and improve serviceability. Each unit is furnished with a Thermal Expansion Valve (TXV) to automatically control the flow of refrigerant to the cooling coil in direct response to the load.
  • Electronic remote thermostat and humidistat
  • Automatic low pressure safety switch
  • Manual reset high limit safety switch

Modular design

  • use two units instead of one in critical applications or where loads are very high at certain times of the year but where only one unit is needed most of the time. Allows backup in case one unit is out of service.
  • Low ambient control allows the unit to be installed in a garage or outside under cover where temperatures may be too cold for standard application. Condenser fan cycles to automatically control the head pressure and a heater maintains the oil temperature in the compressor.
  • Add-on Humidifier with an electronic humidistat. Self-contained unit bolts directly into Guardian and connects to 24v control system. Requires only external water and drain.
  • Heating coil works automatically with the cooling to prevent simultaneous operation. Factory installed, no field installation required.
  • Duct collars and flexible ducts to connect Guardian to cellar. Sized to match capacity and outlets of each Guardian size. Collars connect to the Guardian unit and to the grilles - no need for additional wall grilles.
  • Water cooled condenser option to air cooled. Rejects the heat output into the water instead of the surrounding air. Eliminates the condenser fan. Ideal application is for make-up water to swimming pool.
  • Add-on condensate pump where gravity drains are not available
