Engineered Cooling Modules

  • Engineered Cooling Modules-ECM Series

    Russells Engineered Cooling Modules (ECM’S) are a perfect solution for applications where an existing room needs temperature or humidity control. Our ECM’s incorporate almost 40 years of experience along with all the latest technology. Russells ECM’s are a turnkey conditioning unit that houses the plenum, blower fans (2 or 4 fans) heat, cooling and humidity control. These units roll right up to your existing box or room and can be very easily customized to your needs.


    • Temperature range for single stage refrigeration: -22˚F/-30˚C to 350˚F/177˚C
    • Temperature range for cascade refrigeration: -100˚F/-73˚C to 350˚F/177˚C
    • Change rates from 9˚F/5˚C/min. to 36˚F/20˚C/min. (Faster rates achieved with LN2 cooling)
    • Humidity Range: 10% to 95% RH within the bounds of a 185°F/85°C max. dry bulb and a 40°F/4°C min. dewpoint.
