Industrial Process Chillers

Mercury offer the Thermex range of industrial process chillers.  Thermex industrial process chillers are designed to suit any application from domestic and office to large scale industrial applications. These high quality Australian designed and manufactured chillers are built to endure extreme ambient conditions – up to 52°C.

We offer chiller solutions for all applications from 0.5kw up to 450kw cooling capacity. These chillers can be individually customised with a large range of options to suit every cooling requirement. Variable speed inverter scroll technology options allow stepless capacity control from 15% up to 100% are some of the most energy effecient chillers on the market. Inverter drives improve chiller effeciency and reduce running costs to save money over the life of the chiller installation. Call us to learn more.

Remote Drinking Water Storage Units

Refrigerated central storage drinking water cooler units are designed for applications where they are short peaks of cold water consumption and the consumption of the water is remote to the cooling unit.

Applications such as schools where students need cold water at recess or lunch and the system has time to recover before the next peak. The systems are designed – in the school environment – to be installed with drinking troughs.

Thermex has under trough units, under sink units and remote storage units in the range.


  • Large variety of capacities.
  • Stored water to help cope with peaks.
  • Fully compliant cold-water tank Insulation.
  • Environmentally friendly R-134a refrigerant.
  • Cold water tank pressure relief valve as standard.
  • Tank rated to 750kPa.
  • Power requirement – 220/240V 50 Hz – Single phase Galvanised steel chassis.
  • Factory set to supply 10°C chilled water.
  • Compliant to WaterMark certification.
  • Removable lid for easy access to refrigeration system Drain for easy maintenance and tank cleaning.
  • 5 years warranty on the tank.
  • Removable condensing unit for easy maintenance.
