Powered by world leading commercial refrigeration manufacturers Imbera, Chill It technology cools and dispenses beverages (cans, plastic bottles etc) to extra-cold in seconds, drastically reducing energy consumption (60% energy savings when compared to a standard one door cooler). 'Chill it’ compact units also save valuable floor space for retailers - when compared to traditional chilled cabinets.

Chill It technology also eliminates cold beverage ‘stock out’ for retailers, meaning extra cold drinks are always available. And, as extra cold drinks are always more attractive to consumers, stores have reported a significant boost in beverage sales.


To help them optimize the efficiency of their revolutionary cooling units, Chill It were keen to utilize the operating and energy saving benefits of Hydratech’s non-toxic Coolflow DTX heat transfer fluid. Chill It contacted the glycol experts, to see if there was an opportunity to form a technical partnership. A collaborative R&D program followed, including extensive fluid testing at sites around the world. The tests confirmed the performance benefits of Coolflow DTX, and assessments by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) verified that the high-performance glycol was less toxic than the products being cooled.

Chill It technology is making a significant impact across Latin America, and exciting plans for a global roll-out are currently underway.

Key Takeaways:

The Coolflow DTX formulation used in the Chill It coolers comes into direct contact with the cans and bottles being cooled, and ultimately the hands and mouths of users. When the FDA were assessing the fluid, they had to verify that Coolflow DTX was less toxic than the products being cooled.

Proven to reduce energy costs by >10% (as verified by Star Technical Services), Coolflow DTX will maintain suitable efficiencies for low temperature systems previously not possible with propylene glycols, while improving fluid reliability and system longevity.

The list of Coolflow DTX adopters is extensive, with a host of well-known companies such as Coca-Cola, PepsiCo, Molson Coors and BrewDog all benefitting from the switch to DTX fluid technology.
