    York made this one in 2005, don't know if they still market it. If that doesn't work you could always try this.

    10 ton Trane but they are expensive 2-5 Ton scroll compressors. Some old mansions in the South have them. Need only one outside unit (5'x4'x4h') and can pipe a 1 1/2 " water lines wherever you want. knock yourself out. Have a cool mint jullip there Chase. Thank you, thank you very much

    Make one!

    We used to service a customer (PITA) with a wine cellar. Just a standard 2 ton outdoor unit feeding a little chiller barrel. Then the chilled water was piped to a fan coil in the cellar. We first replaced the old Whirlpool condenser with a 7A0024 American Standard then replaced the chiller barrel later.

    I think that York link is another company who buys York outdoor units and puts on a kit and sells to dry cleaners. What they need chilled water for I don't know. They advertise in the trade magazines too.

    http://www.packagedchiller.com/ here's another one.

    They need chilled water to run through the condencer for the refrigeration unit that condences the perk.

    It takes three people to do anything around here. Two do the work, one explains to the crowd of people who showed up when they seen smoke and flames.

    Capacities down to two tons. Three phase standard but single phase on request. They have coil in tank heat exchange which makes them less sensitive to variations in flow; we've even seen them freeze-up to the point of no flow without permanent damage.

    look into geothermal companies. www.waterfurnace.com for instance makes units with VERY wide operating ranges. Their Envision NSW and NDW units are water-to-water systems (1.5 to 15 Tons) that can be configured in pretty much any way imaginable, and operate over pretty much any temp range. They are enclosed in a relatively simple 'box', with power, control, and water connections. Can be mounted pretty much anywhere.
