Providing application flexibility is a key objective for Pure Thermal and this is well reflected in the 5 x Hydrocarbon (R290) Chiller ranges that are offered:

Water cooled – Reciprocating and Scroll Compressor ranges

Air cooled – Reciprocating & Scroll Compressor ranges

Heat recovery – Options providing 100% low grade heat or 20% high grade heat outputs

Simultaneous 4-pipe – Cooling or Heating with total flexibility/any percentage load

The Pure Hydrocarbon Chiller range is the next generation of Chillers, suitable for process or HVAC applications. Delivering the highest levels of sustainability with non F-Gas natural refrigerants and practical well proven performance.

The complete future proofed cooling solution.


Hydrocarbon Chillers utilise the natural refrigerant R290 to provide cooling at temperatures as low as -15°c.


  • Process Cooling
  • Air Conditioning and Water Cooling
  • Existing Chiller Replacement
  • BREEAM focused applications


Due to their utilisation of the natural refrigerant Hydrocarbon (R290), Hydrocarbon Chillers deliver efficient performance whilst removing the impact of F-Gas regulations and future proofing against F-Gas refrigerant legislation.

    • Can utilise existing AHU & Fan Coils
    • Air Cooled & Water Cooled
    • 20kW-350kW


Production/Manufacturing Applications

Hydrocarbon Chillers provide an ideal process cooling solution where reliability and efficiency are required alongside high levels of sustainability.

With output temperature capability down to -15°c, Hydrocarbon Chillers are able to satisfy the most demanding of production cooling applications. Including Water-glycol cooling and production area cooling.


Cost efficient carbon savings can now be achieved by utilising the Pure Hydrocarbon Chiller range.

    • Temperature range down to -15°c
    • Direct Process Chiller Replacement
    • Existing Chiller Integration Option
    • Integrate with existing Fossil Fuel Heat Sources

*Efficiency will be dependent on individual project conditions and requirements, an individual illustration can be provided with regard to capital cost, operational costs and return on capital, based on actual site specific information.
