Hicksville, NY (September 8, 2014) Universal Photonics Incorporated, (UPI) manufacturer and global distributor of advanced surfacing products, unveiled the latest development for optical laboratory processing: the CHILLMATE OUTDOOR SERIES. A first to hit the optical industry, the CHILLMATE OUTDOOR SERIES takes the heat out of the lab, and with a zero footprint, frees up valuable lab space. 

Removing chillers from the lab takes the heat they generate right along with them. Ambient room temperature can be controlled with less effort and at a much lower cost and moving the chilling process outside of the laboratory presents a new range of possibilities for increased productivity! While chillers are anchored outdoors, the CHILLMATE Control Center is conveniently accessible within the lab. “We have a commitment to providing solutions. Our customers presented a problem and once again, UPI delivered an innovative, state-of-the-art solution.” says John Pecorella, member of the UPI Technical Sales force.

The OUTDOOR SERIES is a natural extension of UPI’s patented CHILLMATE line and as such has been engineered to maintain constant cool temperatures, eliminating unwanted fluctuations in temperature and reducing lens defects. Like all chillers in the CHILLMATE line, the OUTDOOR SERIES can be used with fining and polishing machines, as well as centrifuges, delivering the same optimum results. The CHILLMATES, available for water or slurry systems, utilize a fully hermetic compressor and CFC-free refrigeration. All are available as standalone units and can be retrofitted into nearly any existing system. The OUTDOOR SERIES, made of high grade galvanized steel, is built to withstand years of extreme weather exposure. They are offered in a range of models, including custom to meet any lab’s production level.Outdoor installation, by a team of UPI technicians, is quick and seamless, with daily lab production left virtually uninterrupted.

Universal Photonics' remains at the forefront of innovative polishing technology after more than 85 years because they continue to deliver the very latest advancements. For more information about Universal Photonics and its chilling & filtering equipment, please visit
