Freeze or chill filtering

Recommended Posts

For those that are freeze or chill filtering your vodka, what kind of system do you use? We are looking for a relatively inexpensive system since our vodka will not be our primary product.

Thanks!

Low cost is a heat exchanger and well water but your well water should be less than 60 f

The cold filtering glycol chillers I have always supplied were used below 32F glycol, usually around 25F.

Wouldn't it be cheaper to just buy an extra large chest freezer, drop a stainless steel lining in and chill in there, then filter out?

I have a small used & reconditioned 3 HP chiller which can be used, $6,000 or a little less- It would be run tested at the factory.

230/3/60. It would get you 18,000 Btu/hr at 25F glycol temp for your filtering.
