Plate heat exchangers are the most efficient and economical heat exchangers in the market. When used with wort chilling, you will save the most in time and water.
To clean them, simply back flush with clean water and then bake in an oven to evaporate out all of the water for storage between brews.
If you are looking for an economical chiller, choose one of the B3-12A models. The B3-23A models have twice the length of the economical chillers and are the preferred models by most home brewers. If you need performance, we highly recommend using the B3-36A models. Remember that the length of the unit is most important for efficient heat transfer while adding plates is generally to relieve pressure drop through the channels (with some added heat transfer). It's usually better to buy a longer unit than to get one with more plates for the sake of performance.
Note: Our beer wort chillers have garden hose fittings for the water side. If you prefer to use standard pipe fittings or need a bigger unit than the B3-36A (serious brewers) please check for other plate heat exchangers by Duda Energy. Any heat exchanger can be used in wort chilling. We carry these units with the most convenient fittings for typical homebrew applications.

SS304 has good general corrosion resistance to a range of organic and in-organic fluids. It will have poor resistance to sulfuric and hydrochloric acids. Crevice corrosion may also occur when chlorides (salts) are present in the fluid. Since chlorides are in all natural sources of water it is best to use distilled water whenever possible. typically, a unit will last about 10 years with regular tap water depending on salt content. Not recommended for use with salt water.

Fits easily into smaller brew kettles. 25' copper tubing. It is important to cool beer (wort) to yeast pitching temperature in the shortest possible time. By putting a wort chiller into a brew kettle at the end of the boil and running cool water through the chiller, it is possible to cool the wort below 80 degrees in 12 to 15 minutes. This reduces the lag time between the boil and active yeast fermentation. This unit comes with the fittings needed to hook up your own garden hoses to the wort chiller.Approximate dimensions: 7" to the top coil, 17" inches total height to the bend in the inlet/outlet.
