Kreyer Chilly MAX chiller & heating unit

The Kreyer range of refrigeration and heating units are manufactured by internationally renowned Kreyer, a WTG Quantor brand, who have over 40 years of specialist knowledge in wine temperature control at all stages of vinification. The units are designed to meet the rigorous requirements of modern winemaking. They are also ideal for the temperature control of beer, cider, juice, spirits and soft drinks (see Kreyer tab).

The Kreyer Chilly MAX is a compact, mobile cooling and heating unit, and the optimal solution for small to medium scale drink producers who wish to cool their products, but also need to heat their products from time to time.

  • The Chilly MAX is available in 3 sizes, with capacities from 6.4 - 2.7 kW (8.58 - 17.03 HP)
  • Equipped with hermetically closed motor compressor and a complete cooling water circuit containing a stainless steel water tank and centrifugal pump
  • Equipped with an additional heater which is integrated inside a stainless steel water-tank
  • Highly efficient micro-channel condenser that ensures even more efficient heat transfer
  • Ventilator mounted on top, so the unit can be placed near a wall with any side facing it
  • Removable sides for easy access for maintenance

Whether you require an individual unit or a complete cooling/temperature control system with ringmains and Speidel tanks* (insulated or standard) with heating/cooling jackets, we can help.

Our engineers install and commission complete cooling/temperature regulation systems, this includes the construction of a bespoke ringmain (pipework) and bracketry.

Company Development

The Kreyer brand was founded in 1970 in Villefranche sur Saône, France - the centre of the Beaujolais wine production area. In 1998 the company changed ownership and was incorporated by Wine Technology GmbH (WTG), an Austrian, American & German partnership, and since then headquarters have been located in the triangle of Germany, France & Luxembourg, in the heart of the Mosel winegrowing region. Further company expansion led to the development of larger production facilities. The company has since expanded and changed its name to WTG-Quantor GmbH. WTG-Quantor is now represented in all major wine-growing countries worldwide, incorporating over 80 countries, including Chile, South Africa and Australia.


Quantor's equipment range covers the following functions:

  • Cold settling of must and juices
  • Fermentation control, including control by CO2 monitoring
  • Malolactic fermentation control (with heating option standard on most units)
  • Micro/macro oxygenation
  • Rapid cooling of wort
  • Long term control of product storage temperature
  • Product chilling prior to carbonation
  • Cold stabilisation
