Industrial and Hazardous-Duty Bottled-Water Coolers

DMC manufactures the first line of truly industrial bottled-water coolers. Made of 316L stainless steel, all are designed specifically for corrosive, dusty, hot, humid, and, when necessary, hazardous (explosive) locations.

These Are Standard Features, Not Options:

Hazardous (Explosive) Locations:

When specified, DMC makes units suitable for hazardous-duty (“explosion-proof” or “flame-proof”) conditions.

We use UL-recognized hazardous-duty compressors appropriate for the classification of the area.

DMC offers bottled-water coolers suitable for use in areas classified as any of the following types of locations: NEC Classes I, II, or III, Groups B, C, D, E, F or G, and Division/Zone 2 or 1 and IEC Classes I, IIA, IIB, and IIC Zones 1 and 2. The units will also be temperature-coded T3B.

DMC seals the coolers in the factory for fast and easy installation, and they retain the same corrosion resistance and other harsh-duty features as DMC's standard coolers.


Cabinet: All corrosion-resistant stainless steel type-316L, inside and outside including interior shelves, mountings and drip basin. Satin finish on all exterior surfaces for an attractive and easily-cleaned lustrous appearance. Bottle-support ring made of durable and corrosion-resistant polypropylene.

Controls: Protected from environment by installation inside NEMA 4 (IP65) or NEMA 4/7/9 enclosure.

Valves: Self-closing, no-drip. Made from durable and corrosion-resistant polypropylene.

Cold Water Reservoir: Flat-bottom stainless steel basin with approximately 2-1/2 quarts (2.4 liters) useable capacity and polypropylene fittings. Corrosion-protected copper evaporator coil is wrapped around reservoir, insulated with closed-cell elastomer.

Corrosion Protection: Capillary tube, filter-dryer, two access valves and all other metal tubing protected with either a special epoxy coating (e-coat) with near-zero porosity applied electrostatically and baked or with special enamel paint to protect them from acidic and caustic corrosion.

Condenser: Three rows deep, sized for high ambient temperatures and high altitudes, and protected against acidic and other corrosion with a special epoxy coating (e-coat) with near-zero porosity applied electrostatically and baked.

Compressor: Andover Protection Systems’ Model EEG (for 115/60/1) or APS Model EEJ (220-240/50-60/1). These compressors are specifically designed for and recognized by UL (Underwriters Laboratories) for use in hazardous (“explosive”) areas, even those requiring explosion-proof or flameproof equipment.

Rated Capacity - At water and air temperature of 131° F (55°C) — lower 1/2 gallon per hour of water from 131°F (55°C) to 50°F (10°C) — Note: 131°F water will scald skin; therefore, chiller must lower the water
Capacity at ARI standard conditions - At water and air temperature of 90°F (32.2°C)—lower 0.9 gallons per hour of water from 90°F (32.2°C) to 50°F (10°C) — (produce 50% more cold water than standard units). A.D.A.: Overall, the coolers comply with the requirements of the ADA specification 4.15.2-4   

Shipping Dimensions: Approximately 73 lbs. and 8.6 cubic feet.
