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 1/4HP chiller is rated for aquariums up to 260 gallons. The easiest way to determine which chiller size is best for you 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 1/2", 5/8" or 3/4" 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 480-1920 gallons per hour.

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

Quite and efficient

Pros: Quiet and cools fast

Cons: None

I replaced my 10 year old JBJ Arctica chiller because its fan was starting to make noises. Even though it was still working and cooling I decided to replace it since summer is almost here and I didn’t want it to break down during a hot day. That being said, 10 years of service is great for any product, especially a chiller.
This new chiller is extremely quiet. If you are looking for a great performing chiller, JBJ Arctica is the way to go.
I tried another popular brand but it was way too loud and it had a bad smell to it. Due to this, I had to return it within a week and went back to this JBJ.

I highly recommend this chiller.
