  1. Hey Rich, Up here outside the Perimeter of Atlanta- if you need any help on the cooling/heating side, give me a shout, Shipped a cooling system to Daytona, FL last yr to a rum producer there. We put an extra Tstat in the system so he can toggle between 45F water for still cooling and 25F for chill filtering.
  2. We now have added filtration services- equipment plus consulting for brewers and distillers. Soon to be added, filtration package drawings.
  3. What options do you have available for reconditioned chillers?

  4. Make sure you install a strainer on the inlet of the city water- always winds up you have sediment in the city water line.
  5. In the past, I have supplied these type systems to hospitals for emergency cooling for MRI equipment in case the cooling chiller fails- it's a matter of control valves and for interfacing with a glycol system, you must have a city water to glycol heat exchanger to prevent city water from entering the glycol loop, making a mess of your process loop! It's fairly pricey if done as automatic sensing system, but not so much if a manual switchover is involved. Call me if you want details and a budget $$. Mike Gronski, 678-773-2794
  6. Not updated on our website, we are now offering cooling systems and steam boilers- both shipped from TN if you want a visit to either!
  7. If anyone needs the cooling or heating systems to go-along, I do have some reconditioned chillers available along with new chillers and boilers. Call Mike 678-773-2794. Have a wonderful Christmas everyone!!!
  8. You have more options if you are simply cooling wort or non-whiskey liquids. I most commonly recommend the Trident U-tube, for whiskey mash- they had the unit designed by a PE and have great success with it. Jackets can be problematic for larger mash tuns above 500 Gal, and generally an external exchanger is used or even added as a booster. Cooling with a coil dipped into a fermenter with mash because the circulation is not there for the mash over the tubes, unless you constantly pump the mash around, and even then you really can't do the job 100%. When you get into very large mash tuns, "wide gap" plate exchangers are used as well, but the starting price tag on these is over $15K for the smallest ones I've quoted.

  10. 240/1/60 can be built on new units or reconditioned to units where the compressor needs to be replaced. Right now I have no units I can recondition over to 230/1/60, sorry. I was thinking you could purchase two of the 3 HP chillers. It would be cheaper to buy one 5 HP 240/1/60 new at this point.
  11. Here's a flow chart for the cooling side. FLOW CHART- DISTILLERY WITH WINTER COOLER.pdf
  12. You need a 2400 L reservoir for the mash cooling, unless you can use that much well water and it's in great shape (treatment). Most use a chiller with either treated water (process water treatment) or glycol mix (if your chiller is outdoors). I would say a 5 HP chiller would do it for the mash cooling with the reservoir with either a second process pump or the chiller pump diverting some of the chilled water back to the reservoir since your mash tun won't be able to accept all the flow from the chiller pump. The still should be ok as well with that size chiller. I take it you're up in Canada. I do have a couple 3 HP reconditioned chillers available- what voltage are you running the equipment? Mike Gronski
  13. I can supply you a 20 HP boiler, shipped from Nashville. Re-done dimensional sheet available next week. Mike G 770-995-4066
  14. Good luck! We have quite a few chiller systems in TN, latest in Sevierville.
  15. If you need any help with referrals to customers for glycol chillers, give me a shout.  I work with many manufacturers on a referral basis, and would be happy to talk to you anytime.

    BTW, I grew up just West of you in Corning, NY and lived in Buffalo for many years.

    Now I live outside Atlanta avoiding the summers and am happy for winters, but looking to move up into the TN hill country!
