JBJ Mini-Arctica Chiller DBI-050 1/15hp Information


Product Manuals & Documentation

Enhancing the Nano Experience
JBJ introduces the redesigned, revolutionary MINI Arctica Chiller! Finally, there is a REAL long-term solution for heat concerns in Nano environments with amazing cooling capablities beyond thermal-electric and fans, that produce less than minimal results.

The Mini-Arctica 1/15 Hp handles up to 40g aquariums. Don`t be fooled by the smaller size; it`s driven by an energy-efficient 1/15 Hp compressor that can drop temperatures beyond anything comparable on the market.

A Tradition of Excellence
You can rest assured that this smaller compact version incorporates the same high performance and reliable day-to-day operations as our #1 selling aquarium chillers, commercial chillers, and custom OEM projects with the premium Arctica branded name.

Screening Process
All chillers require clean airflow to achieve optimal efficiency. We`ve now made it easier with a removable screen for quick and easy cleaning.

A New Generation
The industry`s first Mini Chiller that utilizes a nano compressor for maxium cooling capacity. The Arctica Minin Chillers, simply put, OUTPERFORM thermal electric/peltier equipment since it utilizes R-134-A refrigerant gas to drop temperatures with ease. Truly the BENCHMARK of mini chillers!

Quiet, Please!
We know noise is a concern, so we`ve designed the chiller with that in mind. The Mini Arctica Series have the lowest noice and vibration levels in its class.

Digital Controller
Is equipped with an integrated digital temperature controller and probe with a +/- 1F difference from the set point. Simply set the desired temperature and the controller will do the rest automatically.

Style & Elegance
Designed for in-home use, with a contemporary style and luxury finish. An added welcome to any room in the house without the commercial look.

Size Matters
The smallest footprint in the Arctica line-up. The Mini series only require a 7.72" x 12.6" space for placement.

Comments: I received my 1/4 hp JBJ Artica chiller "used" as part of a 120g reef system "setup" in the summer of 2009 while stationed in NC. I have since used it on another 120 system, while in FL, and a 55 and current 120g system (90g display and 30g sump) while in WA. Despite moving with me to three different states and cooling 4 different setups (due to upgrade or Navy transfer) this chiller successfully maintained its desired temp as needed. I admit that although my FL and NC systems had MH lights, I kept my house temp at approx 74 degrees max (from what I can recall) so the chiller wasn't really tested. The real test was in WA where my 55 then (later upgraded) current 120g systems are located in my man cave which is a small house without AC. The house does get upwards of 89 degrees for hours on end on occasion during the summer but my chiller has been able to maintain the programmed temp of 79 degrees. I also second check the temp with two other thermometers to ensure accuracy as well as closely monitor with my digital aquatics reefkeeper. I intend to insulate the man cave as well as replace the windows in the near future so the chiller won't be so burdened during peak temperature days but as of now, this used, well travelled chiller has more than payed for itself by ensuring my expensive livestock (SPS, LPS, invertebrates, fish) live in a stable (temperature wise) environment and has done so for in excess of 5 years. Whenever this does crap out, I will definitely get the same brand.

Comments: Arrived on time, easy 5 minute installation. Seems to perform Flawlessly with minimal noise. When the unit switches on The duration is approximately 15 minutes to readjust the temp. It may go on and off around 3 times during the heat of the day. Seems very well made.

Comments: Awesome I use it on my cold water shark pool and it works awesome best chiller ever a little pricey but we'll worth it. It keeps my pool at 62 degrees f. I wish that you could have it be a 1 degree swing. Cause when I set it for 62 it lowers it to 61 and then turns on when it hits 63 so the temp swings 3!!!

Comments: This is my third Arctica chiller purchase. I have the 1/15, 1/10 and 1/4hp models. I have had other brands, but prefer this one. Super workhorse, very quiet (can hardly tell its running) and reliable. Easy to install and setup. Great warranty, too. Living in FL I need a quality product to keep my critters cool!

So much better than Current!

Comments: LOVE this Chiller! VERY quiet (in my bedroom) but not quite "silent". Super efficient. Chilling cycles are super short. Only "issue" is I wish you could set the desired temp at half degree intervals instead of full degree. I use it on a 92 Gallon Bowfront Corner Tank that I modified by building an internal Nanocube style filter in the back corner to avoid drilling the tank and to be able to put it flushly into a corner of the room. SO much quieter than a Current Chiller I had been using. The Current chiller was about 5 years old, but I was very disappointed when such an expensive piece of equipment started putting dangerous amount of electrical current into the tank! I was in dire need of a replacement AND I got the 1/5 HP Arctica at the best price on the web with super fast delivery! Also, I highly recommend the Two Little Fishies Ball Valves - makes any necessary disconnections a breeze! Thanks Marine Depot!

Comments: Just bought a Red Sea Max 250. If ambient temperature goes over 73 Degrees F. Tank goes way over 82 degrees. After the installation of the chiller,(easy installation),if the temperature on the chiller is set to 79 degrees, the chiller kicks in at 80 degrees and kicks out at 78.9 after running for 7-9 minutes of chilling, maintaining a nice 79.5 degrees approximately in the tank no matter what the ambient temperature is. Exactly the temperature I was looking for. Works great.

Comments: Very compact, very easy to set up and control. Got the 1/5 HP and it lowered the temp in my 180 from 80 to 75 in a few short hours. MD was having a great sale on this item, but knowing what I know now, I would have paid full price!!
