Breezaire WKCE Series Cooling System Wine Fridge WKCE 1060 Overview
WKCE 1060 is a direct replacement for WKC 1060 & OEM 1060.
All Breezaire cooling systems are specialized designs that create a kind of carefully controlled environment demanded products that are highly sensitive to changes in temperature and humidity. They are not intended for use in standard refrigeration applications. Here are some features every Breezaire cooling unit have:
The ideal temperature for storing and aging wine is between 50 and 60 degrees Fahrenheit. Each BREEZAIRE system includes an adjustable thermostat that makes it possible for the user to precisely control the conditions in the wine cellar. When initially bringing the temperature down to the desired level and in maintaining the target temperature, the system produces a gentle stream of cool air never a blast of cold air that could subject the wine to abrupt temperature changes.
- Automatic Humidity Control
Humidity must be present in the wine cellar to prevent cork and label deterioration. The gentle cooling action of the system maintains the relative humidity in the 50 to 75 percent range, eliminating excess moisture but never allowing the air to become dry enough to create an undesirable condition. (Additional moisture may be required in extremely dry climates.)
All BREEZAIRE systems are engineered to control vibration by dampening mounts throughout the cooling system. All units are hand-assembled and tested to ensure that they meet the most exacting standards, resulting in a wine that has greater clarity and brilliance.
BREEZAIRE systems perform their task quietly and unobtrusively to preserve the atmosphere of isolation from the outside world that makes a visit to a wine cellar a unique experience.
An attractive metal cabinet that blends in with the décor of your cellar area and can be flush mounted to any wall.
BREEZAIRE's most popular systems are completely self-contained modules that are simply mounted in a wall and connected to a standard 115 AC source. No plumbing, complicated wiring, or special procedures including the on-site installation of refrigerants are required.
All BREEZAIRE systems are designed to deliver superior performance. Constructed using only the highest quality components, and hand assembly by skilled craftsmen in our U.S. production facilities.
- Comprehensive Warranty Coverage
Owners enjoy the security of warranty coverage that reflects BREEZAIRE’s high standards.
Support in the form of expertise in system selection, enclosure design, and enclosure problem solving is just a phone call away.
The Breezaire WKCE Series Cooling System Wine Fridge WKCE 1060 is a compact design with cold air discharge at the bottom, which makes them ideal for installation in cabinets. Because of this configuration, this cooling unit is not rated for a specified number of cubic feet. They are intended for cabinets and other constricted enclosures. Ask your Breezaire Dealer for details.
TheBreezaire WKCE 1060 has a digital electronic (Sentry III+) control system which features:
- Each Wine Cellar cooling units have large, easy to read, a green LED display.
- Accurate, easy to adjust, readable set points with a continuous reading of enclosure temperature or displaying of a set point when changing enclosure temperatures.
- Power outage protection, which delays unit start-up after power outages.
- Using a thermoelectric wine cellar system it blocked airflow protection, which shuts down the unit and protects your wine in case of high temperatures caused by condenser blockage.
- Each compressor wine cooler controls temperature by enclosure air sensors or optional bottle probe.
- Units are shipped from the factory fully charged and ready for use when mounted in a wall and connected to 115 AC volt source
HUMIDITY & INSTALLATION: By the nature of their operation, thermoelectric wine cellar cooling units will maintain a stable humidity level, lower than the relative ambient humidity. In situations where the ambient humidity is high, the Wine Cellar cooling units will lower the humidity to desirable storage levels. In situations where the ambient relative humidity is very low, the desired enclosure relative humidity may not be achieved without adding moisture. To add moisture to the enclosure only use slow, natural evaporation from a small porous water container. Do not use a humidifier.
TEMPERATURE & INSTALLATION: These compact compressor wine cooler units are designed to cool 25 degrees less than the ambient temperature of the venting side of the unit. In some cases, improper placement or installation may cause the unit's performance to be degraded. The condensing unit must have a constant supply of fresh air, less than 85 degrees F. If the condensing unit is located in a confined area with poor ventilation, the unit will not be able to reject the heat it is removing from the enclosure and a malfunctioning unit will be suspected, even though the unit is mechanically sound. Call us to discuss your installation concerns.
Bottle Probe (Optional)
The BREEZAIRE Bottle Probe can be used on all models. The bottle probe is used when you want to control the temperature of the wine cellar according to the liquid in the bottles. When the bottle probe is plugged into the unit it will take place of the internal air sensor.
How to use the Bottle Probe:
Allow the enclosure to stabilize at the desired temperature for several days (72hours). Using a normal size wine bottle clean bottle and then fill it with water insert the bottle probe into the bottle, and place it in the enclosure. Do not connect the bottle probe to the unit until the bottle has sufficient time to cool to the enclosure temperature (72 hours). Connect the bottle probe to the outlet located on the face of the unit. The on and off operation of the unit is now controlled by the temperature of the liquid in the bottle. The temperature displayed is that of the liquid in the bottle. Unplugging of the bottle probe will return the unit to the internal air sensor and will be reading the wine cellar temperature. The bottle probe cord is 5’ long.
