Welcome to CHILLKING® 

WATER CHILLERS manufactured by CHILLKING® CHILLERS are built using the highest quality components. We are one of the few manufacturers that have stainless steel reservoir tanks. CHILLKING®'s refrigeration evaporator is manufactured by CHILLKING® in house. Every CHILLKING® water chiller is load tested and must produce at 110% of the BTU rating for that model. No matter your need, brewery, distillery, residential, low temp, medical MRI, yogurt, fast food, margarita machines, clean rooms, laboratories, food safe, dry cleaner, all industries, residential, hot tub heater/plunge pool, and air conditioning, CHILLKING® has a model for you.

About Our Products


    Custom, Horizontal, and Vertical are available from 1 to 100 tons. An auto fill mechanism is available on all models with tanks. Water distribution manifolds can be constructed to meet your exact needs. Our innovative distribution water manifold drastically reduces the normal manifold footprint. CHILLKING® is an innovator by reducing manifold design to fit in a cabinet 30"W X 19"H X 12"D. In most cases up to ten pieces of equipment can be run on this manifold system.
  • Evaporator In Tank

    Units equipped with the stainless steel tank have the evaporator in tank. Our unique to CHILLKING® design maximizes the refrigeration circuit and flows the water around the evaporator to attain maximum heat exchange.
  • Electrical

    CHILLKING® uses nothing but UL approved components. Our systems can be wired single phase, three phase 208V and three phase 460V, 480V or 575V-600V. Temperature Controller and Circuit • The temperature control circuit is wired using the dependable and versatile RANCO® controller. This unit can be wired 24V, 120V, or 240V. Many other options are available.


  • CHILLKING® Chiller systems have the best of components in our refrigeration circuit. Horizontal, Vertical and Remote chillers have Copeland® compressors with a suction filter and liquid dryer ensures many years of dependable service.



CHILLKING® opened as Pat's Refrigeration in 1995. I worked for several years prior to that building one off chillers and installing equipment. My son James and I started as J.P.'s Express Service in 1997, installing refrigeration and restaurant equipment along with building chillers as we sold them. We saw a need for a quality heavy duty chiller in the restaurant and food processing industry, at that point we designed, built, and had ETL certified a line up of 2 tons to 10 tons. We designed those chillers to avoid the problems we had experienced with other brands. Thinking those 8 models of chillers were more than we could ever need. In 2003, CHILLKING® Chillers Inc. was incorporated in the state of Texas to match our brand name. We then made the decision to concentrate on water chillers. Our name emphasized the direction and goals of our company. The response has been excellent and our business has grown. CHILLKING® Chillers now has distributors worldwide and has chillers operating worldwide. CHILLKING® Manufacturing Group LTD based in Dublin Ireland is a branch of CHILLKING® Chillers Inc. We have plans for a CHILLKING® owned distributorship based in the area of the city of Athlone.

CHILLKING® has grown rapidly and now has models of ETL listed UL approved chillers for most any industry. We are also EU CE listed. CHILLKING® manufactures chillers sized from 3,000 BTU chillers to 200 tons(2,400,000 BTU). CHILLKING® recently purchased property on Texas Highway 95 and built a new factory. We completed our move towards the end of 2015 and opened the new year of 2016 in our new manufacturing facility. CHILLKING® has been building chillers for over twenty years and our goal remains the same. "Build the most trouble free chiller in the industry". The original 5 ton chiller built in 1995 is still running and has only required routine maintenance. CHILLKING® guarantees every chiller with a CHILLKING® designed evaporator to exceed its BTU rating by 10% at 90F ambient temperature or 110F condenser temperature. Every chiller is tested under load and each has a BTU test for 110% LWT. We are the only chiller manufacturer with such a guarantee.

Although CHILLKING® started manufacturing chillers to support ice cream machines and slush machines we now manufacture chillers for any industry. CHILLKING® has approximately 500 chillers in Sonic Drive-Ins®. CHILLKING® is also the only authorized chiller manufacturer for IDQ® (International Dairy Queen) and numerous other chains producing ice cream or yogurt. Some of our customers are Dell, Disney World, and Hilton. Many cancer treatment centers and MRI centers use CHILLKING®. From ice cream, to beer, whisky, and wine or industrial we have you covered. CHILLKING® will also design a chiller for special applications. Often for no added fee.

CHILLKING® CHILLERS Inc. has two factory laws that the factory must abide by. They are:

1. Each CHILLKING® with a CHILLKING® designed evaporator must exceed 110% of its listed tonnage or it does not ship.

2. Use as little energy as possible within the boundaries of the laws of thermal-dynamics.


New Products

CHILLKING® has been busy producing new products. More and more businesses are needing environment control such as dehumidification and clean air. Our new dehumidifiers are top of the line in keeping with CHILLKING®'s tradition of producing equipment that is superior to the competition.

Greenhouses are controlling their environment to grow healthy for us crops. In addition the MJ legalization in states has created a huge demand for dehumidification and clean air. DehuKing Dehumidifiers are built using nothing but stainless steel frames, metalwork, and cabinets. Greenhouses are so humid that standard metals will oxidize and be destroyed after a few years.

DehuKing realized the need for a durable commercial industrial dehumidifier. Realizing that space is better used to produce crops or products DehuKing reduced the footprint of our dehumidifiers. More BTUs and smaller space taken. Not only do our dehumidifiers remove moisture from the air, but we also clean the air.

Every dehumidifier has air filters which can be ordered in different grades of filters. DehuKing has made available to our users many options such as electrostatic filters, ionizers, charcoal filters, and various grades of filters. Paint booths, industrial, commercial, retail space, medical, and greenhouses can all benefit from dehumidification and cleaning the air as it flows through the unit.



CHILLKING® has partnered with BioTherm Solutions in providing a cost savings air conditioning system for greenhouses. Several years ago CHILLKING® designed and patented a system to increase the yield of CNG when fueling vehicles. We see natural gas as the fuel of the future, most don’t realize that it’s a renewable fuel, methane gas is the main ingredient. Methane is now being recovered from dumps, garbage dumps, or any biodegradable in the soil. Plants are being built to produce methane.

CHILLKING® has always been energy conscious by building chillers that produce 110% of their tonnage rating. Not only does CHILLKING® exceed ratings we do it with less energy and at 90F ambient temperature. Most companies rate at 70F to 75F. It’s important to use less energy and to produce less pollutants. We were the first chiller company to use environment friendly refrigerant 410a. Large industrial applications will benefit by using natural gas chillers.

CHILLKING®'s natural gas chillers use a GM base engine on most of our natural gas chillers. Natural gas is a clean burning fuel, for that reason the oil stays cleaner and wear is reduced. These engines can be quickly rebuilt with easy to get parts. Fuel consumption is reduced by engine design, compressor sizing, and attention to detail when CHILLKING® build the chiller. Smooth bends with large radius curves reduce back pressure. We insist on tightly fitted joints without excessive solder in the joint. Not only does this reduce the workload on the compressor it reduces load on the engine also.

Commercial chillers and industrial chillers built by CHILLKING® can be modified upon request. All delivered products from CHILLKING® are ETL CE approved. We want your chiller to give good service and save you money. These natural gas powered chillers reduce money spent in chilling or cooling your environment. Most savings are 60% to 80% reduction in utilities and fuel combined. A $6,000 a month bill is reduced by up to $4,800. A bill of $1,200 to $2,400 a month is much more favorable and can pay for the natural gas chiller.

With more and more greenhouses producing foods and other crops there is a demand for controlled environments in the greenhouse. Natural gas chillers can be used to provide chilled water/glycol for the dehumidification air handlers and for air conditioning. We build a dehumidifier air handler that can be precisely set to have zero temperature change. Heat is recovered from the engine exhaust to provide hot water for the hot water HEX. Greenhouse, commercial, industrial, retail, medical and many more can benefit with a natural gas CHILLKING® chiller. Contact CHILLKING® or BioTherm Solutions for your quote.
