Penguin Chillers | Commercial Glycol Chiller
Penguin's Commercial Glycol Chiller line is built on a stainless steel frame. It’s their recommendation to use a 35% – 40% glycol to water mix due to the ease of calculating the mix ratio and the buffer it provides. Depending upon the application (desired operating temp/freeze point) you can use any combination of water to glycol mix ratio that you prefer however, it’s a standard practice for brewing applications to use a 35% to 40% mix ratio.
- Mixing Example: 1 Gallon of Glycol + 1.75 Gallon of Water = 36.3% Glycol Mix.
- 1.75 Gallons of liquid also equals 7 quarts or 14 Pints or 28 Cups of liquid.
Their chillers are perfect for maintaining fermentation temperatures or during crash cooling. However it’s not recommended to use them for dropping wort from boiling temperatures. It is a common practice to use either a 2-stage system where the chiller pre-cools the water which then cools the boiling wort or you can use water to drop the temperatures down to about 100° Fahrenheit, then switch over to using the chiller.
NOTE: the glycol mixture returning to the chiller should never be allowed to reach more than 100° Fahrenheit.
