Wine-Mate 12000SSHWC Split Central-Ducted Cooling System
WINE~MATE split central-ducted cooling systems WM-12000SSHWC are designed to provide a cold environment between 50~65 °F with a humidity range within 50~75% RH for a properly insulated wine cellar. These temperature and humidity ranges are optimized for long term storage of wine like that in natural caves. SSHWC evaporator units are designed to provide chilled air to a wine cellar through ducts and they can be installed up to 25 ft away from the cellar to reduce noise. It also provides better installation flexibility. SSHWC cooling systems consist of a remote condensing unit and an evaporator unit and they are connected by a liquid line and an insulated suction line. SSHWC condensing units are water cooled so that exhaust ventilation is not needed. SSHWC condensing units can be located away from the wine cellars up to 75 ft so that noise and compressor vibration are isolated. SSHWC split central-ducted cooling system can also be used for frameless glass cellars.

- SPLIT SYSTEM COOLING UNIT - central-ducted design
- SSHWC cooling systems consist of a remote condensing unit and an evaporator unit, and they are connected by a liquid line and an insulated suction line.
- SSHWC cooling systems have a secondary drain pan for optional condensate pump.
- SSHWC evaporator/fan units have a special coil coating. Coil dipped and baked with LRCCoat anti-corrosion coating.
- SSHWC evaporator/fan units are designed to provide chilled air to a wine cellar through ducts. Backward-curved impeller fully ducted up to 25 ft away from wine cellar to reduce noise. It also provides better flexibility of installation.
- SSHWC condensing units can be located away from the wine cellar up to 75 ft so that noise and compressor vibrations are isolated.
- SSHWC condensing units must operate above 32°F ambient temperature.
- SSHWC split central-ducted cooling system can be mounted remotely anywhere available (floor, ceiling or attic) for concealed, quiet and flexible installation.
- SSHWC split cooling systems have adjustable evaporator condenser fans. Fan speed is adjustable because they use speed controllers that are wired in line with the blower motors. Fan speed control regulates flow of current to the fan.
- Adjust evaporator fan speed through the knob to work with various length ducts
- Adjust condenser fan speed through the knob to work with low and high ambient temperatures
- Water cooled condensing units can be installed anywhere with a water connection. No exhaust ventilation is required.
- Pump-down refrigeration system for easy service
- Automatic expansion valve for better humidity control
- Low ambient kit for below 50°F cold weather operation
- TEMPERATURE: The WM-12000SSHWC cooling unit is designed and used to provide a stable temperature between 50~65°F for a properly insulated and sized space.
- AMBIENT TEMPERATURE RANGE: The ambient temperature range for WM-12000SSHWC should not exceed the temperature of the cellar by more than 25°F. Cellar walls should not receive direct sun or strong wind. Lighting should be low wattage and installed on a timer to ensure that lights are not left on when the cellar is unoccupied.
- HUMIDITY CONTROL: The refrigerated space will maintain humidity within the range of 50~75% RH. We use an innovative method to provide additional humidity.
- DISPLAY: Digital display with easy push-button controls
- NOTIFICATIONS: Display notifications provide alerts help to protect your wine cellar and alert you when maintenance is required.
- CONTROL PANEL: Control panel includes digital display, manual defrost button, up and down arrows to adjust temperature as well as browse parameters, power button, and SET button.
- Outdoor enclosure is included with condensing unit
- 2500~12000 Btu/h cooling capacities
- Only 45 dBA noise level in the wine cellar
- WARRANTY: 1 year warranty on parts, 1 year labor.
NOTE: Split systems must be installed by a certified refrigeration technician. Purchase does not include the copper tubing.
Wine-Mate split cooling systems use EC fan motors that meet federal regulation of 10 CFR 431.306 and are required by the federal law.
Do You Have the Right Wine-Mate Wine Cooling System For Your Project?
Find the best cooling system for your wine cabinet or wine cellar by calculating the heat load using one of our calculators.
Quieter Operation with Condensing Unit & Easy-To-Use Control Panel
This water-cooled condensing unit can be placed anywhere water is available, making it easy to create a quiet operating environment. Changing the settings is also a cinch with the easy-to-use control panel on the evaporator unit.
Add The Wine Bottle Probe & Wi-Fi Thermostat
The probe provides an accurate reading of the temperature of your wine, and the thermostat helps maintain a wine cellar at perfect temperature for long term storage of wine.
1) Air temperature in the cabinet may fluctuate, but the wine temperature in the bottle is constant.
2) You can put a cooling unit in a full wine cabinet and show both the air temperature and bottle temperature.
Note: Wine-Mate cooling systems cannot have both the Bottle Probe and Wi-Fi optional features plugged in at the same time. It can only be one or the other.
