We did a test on how much time it needs to cool the water.

Material used on this experiment:
ANS Opti Clear 30cm Cube Tank (27 Litre)
AL 30 Mini Chiller
Jebao AP300 Mini water pump (150l/h)

 

 

 

We use Jebao AP300 mini water pump to run the chiller. Installation is very easy

 

 

 

 

This test shows how long it takes to cool down water to 25 °C. At room temperature of around 29 degrees Celsius.

Below is a table on the result

Time

15.30

28.6

17.40

25.0

 

It takes around 9 hours to bring down from 29.3 to 25.0 °C.

 

AL Mini Chiller stops when it reach the desire temperature, work again when 1°C higher then desire temperature. We did another test to see if how long it takes to bring down from 26°C to 25°C. Below is a table on the result

Around 1 hour to bring down 1°C.

 

We try to cool it to 24°C but it did go down even 0.1°C for 3 hours. Room temperature: 29.6°C. We assume that it can only cool down to 25°C under room temperature of 29°C for a 27 liter tank.

 

You will be able to cool down more if you have lesser water, but it also depend on what room temperature you have.

 

Do some calculation to see which model you would need to use.
