We're one big step away from being physically operational - the chilled water loop. After getting back a couple bids that were well over double what we'd budgeted, we've decided to take this one on ourselves. Right now, I've got one big question, but I'm sure there will be plenty more. The question is ... Do I need pumps on the return line to get the water back to the holding tank? Let me explain the system to help you better answer the question: The chilled water will be stored in a 3000 gallon poly tank that sits outdoors. The water will be chilled by a 35 ton glycol chiller and heat exchangerWater pumped from holding tank ---> into heat exhanger (with glycol loop on the other side of the heat-x) ---> then out to the distillery equipment ---> then returning back to the holding tank We have 8 pieces of equipment that need chilled water: 500 Gallon Vendome Pot Still (Dephlegmator and Condenser) 22' Dehner Continuous Still (Dephlegmator and Condenser) 1000 Gallon Jacketed Mash Cooker (Steam Sparged) (5) U-Jacketed Letina Fermentation Tanks Mike Gronski is helping me with the main pump and heat exchanger. I'm planning on a 3" main chilled water line. We will "drop" off of this main line to each piece of equipment. Depending on the pressure of the main pump, we may add pressure reducers before each piece of equipment. To keep everything nice and clean, everything needs to run overhead just like the steam pipe. The return lines also need to run overhead ... otherwise I'd let gravity take care of the issue. So ... Do I need pumps on the return line to get the water back to the holding tank? If so, any recommendations? And I'm all ears to everyone's 2 cents on the whole system. Big thanks in advance for any advice. I'm sure I'll have more questions as we get into this. P.S. Don't try to drag-and-drop pictures onto a post.

I have 2 used Armstrong water pumps for sale. $100 each OR BEST OFFER. They were used in a hot water process in an industrial plant and all worked perfectly when removed last year. Pump heads are carbon steel and are Armstrong model 4270-06. Motors are Baldor .33HP 115/230 Volt single phase. Pumps sat under a barn lean to and will need to be pulled apart and cleaned up but should work perfectly fine. I am using 3 just like these in my operation. Here is a link to the pump model on Armstrong's site: http://armstrongfluidtechnology.com/en/products/4270-and-4270-stock-motor-mounted-pump Please email firstname.lastname@example.org for more info Thanks, Adam
