Australian chiller manufacturer helps maintain reliability of thrill ride at Dreamworld Resort

  1. In industrial applications, a chiller is used to cool and pump water or other liquid through process equipment. Many people may not realise that chillers are a key part of operations in the majority of industries. Without a reliable chiller, many companies would be unable to complete day to day operations. From producers of ice cream to chocolate makers, hospitals and pharmaceutical companies, a reliable and efficient chiller is crucial to maintain process consistency and product quality.     

When Australia’s Dreamworld Resort on the Gold Coast was building a new rollercoaster, they knew that selecting a reliable and durable chiller was essential to maintaining the quality experience for their customers. Without the ability to keep the hydraulic oil cool, the ride would not be able to operate consistently which would significantly affect the park’s revenue and credibility.


The Mick Doohan Motocoaster is now one of Dreamworld’s most popular extreme thrill rides at the resort. With riders held in by a unique restraint system of life sized replicas of 500cc racing bikes, the rollercoaster attracts hundreds of patrons on a daily basis. With a 605 metre track, eighteen extreme turns and a maximum speed of 72km/h, the ride places high demand on its hydraulic system. The chiller, provided by Australian chiller manufacturer Summit Matsu Chilling Systems, is used to cool the hydraulic oil in the system that drives the rollercoaster. Bob Tan, from the resort emphasised the importance of the chiller “it’s essential, otherwise the oil gets too hot and the ride can’t operate.”  

The technical expertise that comes with the manufacturing process means that Summit Matsu is able to design specific solutions for customer problems. With over 40 years experience in the industry, they provide the most reliable equipment on the market. Mr. Tan commented that the competitive offer that Summit Matsu made was bolstered by the fact that the company is Australian. He spoke about the benefits of having the equipment manufactured in Australia “It’s much easier to talk to a company based in Australia, not only because of the language but also the time zone makes getting in contact much faster.”
