Breezaire WKCE Series Wine Cooling System WKCE 2200
Wine collectors and others who store or age delicate products have special requirements that cannot be satisfied by standard refrigeration equipment. Unlike air conditioners or commercial refrigeration systems, our units gently cool the air without removing the moisture essential for maintaining cork integrity and the wine itself.
Only excess moisture is removed in order to maintain 50% to 75% relative humidity. Our units are not intended to chill wines to a low serving temperature or to cool “service cabinets” which are opened or entered frequently.
Over the years we have worked very hard to constantly improve and update our products while maintaining the ability to repair any production unit we have ever made. Today’s units are exact replacements for units built since 1985.
All BREEZAIRE cooling systems are specialized designs that create the kind of carefully controlled environment demanded by products that are highly sensitive to changes in temperature and humidity. They are not intended for use in standard refrigeration applications.
The WKCE Series cooling units are a compact design with cold air discharge on the bottom, which makes them ideal for installation in cabinets.
Because of their configuration the WKCE series cooling units are not rated for specified number of cubic feet. They are intended for cabinets and other constricted enclosures.
All standard WKCE models are configured as follows:
- Electrical cord & cold air coming out of the front of the unit
- Hot air/condenser coming out of the rear.
For a different configuration, please contact us at 855-454-8548 or email email@example.com
The WKCE has a digital electronic (Sentry III+) control system.
Sentry III+ control system offers the following:
- Large, easy to read, green LED display.
- Accurate, easy to adjust temperature set points with continuous display of cabinet temperature.
- Power outage protection, which delays units start up after power outages.
- Blocked airflow protection, which shuts down unit and protects wine in case of high temperatures caused by condenser blockage or fan failure.
- Controls temperature by enclosure (cellar) air sensors or optional bottle probe.
- Units are shipped from the factory fully charged and ready for use when mounted in a wall and connected to 115 AC volt source
The ideal temperature for storing and aging wine is between 50 and 60 degrees Fahrenheit. Each BREEZAIRE system includes an adjustable thermostat that makes it possible for the user to precisely control the conditions in the wine cellar. When initially bringing the temperature down to the desired level and in maintaining the target temperature, the system produces a gentle stream of cool air never a blast of cold air that could subject the wine to abrupt temperature changes.
Automatic Humidity Control
Humidity must be present in the wine cellar to prevent cork and label deterioration. The gentle cooling action of the system maintains the relative humidity in the 50 to 75 percent range, eliminating excess moisture but never allowing the air to become dry enough to create an undesirable condition. (Additional moisture may be required in extreme dry climates.)
All BREEZAIRE systems are engineered to control vibration by dampening mounts throught out the cooling system. All units are hand assembled and tested to ensure that they meet the most exacting standards, resulting in wine that have greater clarity and brilliance.
Ultra Quiet Operation
BREEZAIRE systems perform their task quietly and unobtrusively to preserve the atmosphere of isolation from the outside world that makes a visit to a wine cellar an unique experience.
