JBJ Lighting The JBJ Arctica Titanium series aquarium chillers use some of the most advanced technological advancements in chiller design. The custom-engineered JBJ titanium coil maximizes contact for fast temperature pull-down while increasing chilling efficiency. This means the most cooling capacity per amp, which reduces energy costs.

The Arctica Titanium 1/15HP chiller is perfect for nano aquariums up to 40 gallons. The easiest way to determine which chiller size is best for your system is by using JBJ’s chiller calculator.

The corrosion-resistant condenser is located on the front side of the chiller. This configuration draws cool air from the front and exhausts the warm air out of the back. Be sure to leave enough room for the hot air to circulate away from the coils. The built-in thermostat and digital controller will automatically maintain the desired set temperature within +/-1 degree Fahrenheit.

The controller has a bright light LED that can be read day or night. The anti-freezing system prevents the chiller from accidental freeze-ups and damage. The simple two-button control pad is easy to use.

Hoses connect to the chiller by ½” barbed fittings. You will need to supply a separate water pump to circulate the water from the aquarium and into the chiller. The recommended water pump should be rated at 110-160 gallons per hour.

JBJ Arctica chillers are UL-listed and have a two-year warranty.

You can purchase the sold separately JBJ Mini Arctica Chiller Installation Kit to make setting up your new chiller fast and easy.

Q
Which pump you recommend for JBJ chiller 1/15?
I have a 30 gallons aquarium and not sure which pump I have to buy. Sumergible or outside

You can choose either an external or submersible pump, whichever suits your plumbing situation best. You want to acheive a flow rate of 110-160 GPH through the chiller so be sure the chosen pump can provide this flow and don't forget to calculate head pressure created by your plumbing and tubing. The MJ1200 is a great little pump and will be sufficient in most cases but then again this is all based on your plumbing set-up. Feel free to email or give us a call with a bit more detail and our talented team of Technical Support Associates can help you choose the right pump.

Q
Pump for JBJ Mini Cooler?
What pump would you recommend for this unit? I would like to stay within the recommended 110-160 gal/hour rating. I am considering the cooler unit and the JBJ installation kit. Am I forgetting anything else that would be required?

A great option for this chiller would be the Cobalt Aquatics MJ600 pump, The JBJ chiller installation kit (JB1211) would make the install much easier as well.
