You are already aware of the chillers that JC Younger supplies to industries like Cannabis, Medical, Bakeries, and Breweries, but did you also know that JC Younger can provide the chilling solutions for the Micro Machining and Electrical Discharge Machining industries as well? These very specialized chillers are called Deionized Chillers. Read on to see if this might be the type chiller application you have been looking for.

Deionized Chillers Explained

In the micro-machining industry, very small and delicate parts are cut using  EDM (Electrical Discharge Machining) where an electrode is used to cut, and shape these delicate parts. This is a highly accurate process, and the piece being cut is constantly being subjected to a dielectric solution to keep the cutting debris free of the piece being cut. This process alone can be damaging to these parts since they are constantly exposed to shrinking and swelling from extreme temperature changes as the piece is being flushed to remove cutting debris. By implementing a Deionized Chiller, you are constantly delivering a Deionized Water Solution to enhance the machine cutting ability, and producing highly accurate micro-machined parts. These chillers use, as the name implies, deionized water that has been stripped down of any impurities including;
  • Calcium
  • Magnesium
  • Sulfates
  • Iron
  • Hydrogen
  • Sodium
  • Silicon
  • Chlorides
  • Carbonates
  • Nitrates
  • Hydroxyl
By eliminating these elemental ions, the deionized water can be used in high voltage applications since it resists the flow of electrical currents. Deionized Water is highly corrosive to stainless steel and should only be used in a Deionized Chiller application. This type of chiller is ideal for a variety of industrial processing from the industries of manufacturing to biotech. The cutting material can range from metal, to stone, and in some applications even glass. When properly used in stainless steel applications there are many benefits of implementing a Deionized Chiller. Some of those benefits include;
  • Saving time and money
  • Providing a protective element to equipment and/or materials used
  • Overheating prevention element
  • Further, optimizing your current operations
By using this high purity level of water that has no ability to conduct electrical currents, you get an extra layer of protection for highly expensive and delicate materials. This creates an ideal situation where precise lab results are critical, as well as saving energy, and providing a constant operating temperature for machining pieces for industries such as;
  • Glass manufacturing
  • Car engines
  • Aquariums
  • Pressure cleaning equipment
  • Fire extinguishers
  • Industrial machinery
  • Biotech
  • Pharmaceutical
  • EDM and laser
  • Cooling systems
So, as you can see, there are many benefits and many industries that can benefit from implementing Deionized Chiller Solutions. Another ideal application for the use of a Deionized Chiller is by running this chiller in tandem with your EDM cutting tools for effective Spindle Cooling. An effective Spindle Cooling application is when you need to precisely maintain a certain temperature in the EDM as it cuts, or machines precise pieces. A Deionized Chiller is designed to do just that and give your EDM an extra layer of thermal protection, thereby prolonging the life of your EDM cutting equipment. Here at the JC Younger company, we certainly hope that you now have a better understanding of what an effective Deionized Chiller does, and how it can provide you with extra machining capabilities to bring your machining processes to the next level. On the other hand, perhaps you have decided that a Deionized Chiller is worth exploring, and you would like to further discuss the possibilities with one of our professional chiller experts. If that is the case, then by all means feel free to contact a member of the JC Younger team and see just how easy it can be to implement a Deionized Chiller into your manufacturing facility.

Sam graduated from Dunwoody College with a degree in HVAC Service, and started out working in the resident side of work. After many years in the residential side of work, Sam took a chance back in 2018 to work in the commercial side of hvac with Jc younger. Since started working with them, Sam has been streamlining Jc younger to make the service side quicker at getting customer back to cooling right away. He always puts the customer needs first, giving them great customer service, and getting them back cooling right away. When Sam is not at work he enjoys hitting up breweries around the area, going up to the cabin, and doing remodeling projects. He also enjoys going out to lake of the woods for some good walleye fishing.In his free time he enjoys taking his grandmother out for meals, fishing and spending time with girlfriend and dog Sara.



Sandy has been in the background of JCY since a baby, growing up playing on chiller systems in the large 12,000SQFT pole shed JCY stores units in. Sandy started working at a young age doing simple tasks like sweeping, painting, organizing Copper fittings and other small tasks. In 2005 Sandy started his 4 year degree at Dunwoody College and graduated in 2007.

During his schooling their he also started his apprenticeship under his fathers supervision. The training consisted of installs of glycol piping in the field, building first chiller and assisting with Chiller service repairs. In 2006 he started learning the in and outs of breweries, and has been JCY’s brewery specialist since then. A challenge he took on was glycol piping a 30 bbl brewery by him self and completed that task in less than 20 day with 16 hour shifts.
