Sorry, Like I said before, I have ZERO experience with a machine that large, and was just throwing out an idea. I couldn't imagine having to fill up a 55 gallon drum with ice so I was envisioning Niblique's "Scratch built" chiller in a larger scale. Doing that made my head hurt, so instead of building a "taller" chiller, I was thinking more along the lines of a "wider" one with intake and output ports at opposite ends.
Once again, this is just a theory and I have no idea if it will work in your situation.

Listen to this man, he knows of what he speaks.
And if you come up with a solution for ground hugging fog in the south, please share. I live in atlanta and last year the ground temperature (not air) of the grass was about 68* IIRC. Even with wet grass, no matter how cold I got the fog leaving the chiller, it would quickly warm up and rise up.
Hope you get it figured out.
