Designed for the Whole Store.

SoloChill is a micro-distributed refrigeration system with a unique, small footprint design that delivers distinct benefits when compared to more traditional, DX system cases. It’s flexible enough to cool walk-ins, workrooms, service departments and cases. Five different designs can service any and every application throughout an entire store.

Designed With A Small Footprint and Big Advantages

The key is a single, glycol-cooled condensing unit per case that can be mounted on top, beside or behind and completely out of a customer’s sightline. Plus, their sound abatement enclosures make them quiet, with no fan noise to annoy shoppers. Add the units’ low power requirements and SoloChill becomes an important part of any Hillphoenix full-store solution.

Designed to be Practically “Plug and Play.”

Factory-installed units come pre-charged and pre-tested from the factory with only seven pounds or less of refrigerant — well below the fi fty-pound limit required by regulations. They are practically “plug and play” with quick-connect water hookups and single-point electrical connections making SoloChill incredibly easy to swap out for merchandising changes or store remodels.

Designed for Easy Maintenance

Control one condensing unit or an entire network of condensers with a BOSS controller from Carel. Know exactly when it’s time for service with BOSS’s remote monitoring capabilities. Then take advantage of the hinged panels on SoloChill for easy-access and connections that are conveniently external. The BOSS open back-net capabilities allows it to communicate with most building management systems (BMS). Opt for a wired computer connection or use a smartphone and an app over wi-fi and maintain complete control of all your cases from the palm of your hand.

Designed to Work with Less.

Because SoloChill utilizes a single-condenser design, refrigerant charges are localized per case and much easier to control and maintain. Total refrigerant use is lessened dramatically—up to 80% less across the store! Downtime is dramatically less.

During maintenance, only one case needs to be worked on at a time, keeping disruptions to a minimum. Pull one case off-line, not a complete multi-case lineup. Also, losses should a leak ever occur are minimal because the leak will be contained to a single case and not an entire lineup.

Finally, energy requirements are less because the compressors in a SoloChill case are DC variable speed with inverters and electronic expansion valves. That means SoloChill is able to match case requirements to condensing unit capacities — a distinct advantage over simple — and more energy-wasteful — on/off compressors.

Designed for the Environment.

Less refrigerant translates quickly into an immediate benefit for the environment. Reduction in HFC refrigerants means a lower GWP impact. When compared to traditional systems, SoloChill cases eliminate the need for long copper refrigerant lines. There are no compressor racks, no large receivers. Refrigerant charges are reduced by up to 80%.

Hermetically-sealed refrigerant circuits dramatically reduce leaks. There is no need for brazing in the field. All units are factory-tested for integrity. And they’re all built from a controlled, repeatable process.

Designed for Your Bottom Line

Of all the benefits SoloChill brings to your store, cost savings may be the most significant of them all. Certainly less refrigerant provides a savings right-up front. The improved performance of a case perfectly matched to unit capacities reduces energy consumption — another direct cost savings. Fewer leaks are another savings. Virtual Plug and Play design makes installation a breeze and reduces labor costs. Not to mention that SoloChill eliminates the need for a separate machine room, or will at least reduce its size, resulting in more room on the sales floor and even more savings!

Design That Stands Alone

For ease of use and performance that is superior to any traditional case installation, SoloChill stands alone. First, as an innovative micro- distributed design concept — not only does it save precious floor space, it also requires only a simple, fluid cooler to remove heat. (Use the building’s own chilled water supply to further reduce installation costs.) But secondly and perhaps most important, SoloChill provides a long-term, truly sustainable refrigeration solution. Today, over twelve hundred SoloChill installations across the United States prove that of all the refrigeration choices out there, SoloChill truly stands alone.
