A thermoelectric water chiller system for cooling fluids, and including a cold sink which defines quiescent areas where convection currents are minimized to facilitate ice formation around the cold sink is provided. The cold sink cooperates with water held in a sealed tank. A cover member which covers the cold sink can be employed which would cooperate with the tank to form a fluid-tight seal therewith. Components needing periodic cleaning are preferably removable from the system, but the tank could be permanently installed. A fan-cooled thermoelectric m...
[ What is claimed is:] [1.] A fluid chiller system comprising:a housing;a tank for holding a fluid, said tank being supported on and extending within said housing;a dispensing valve assembly extending from said tank outwardly through said housing;a cooling unit, sealed to said tank, for cooling at least a portion of the fluid within said tank;temperature sensors to monitor temperatures at two different locations with respect to said chiller system, one of said sensors monitoring temperature of ambient air surrounding said fluid chiller system; anda contr...
