  1. We are now finalizing a large capacity crash cooling system design for whiskey mash with a closed loop glycol cooler and vertical shell and tube heat exchanger. Anyone interested in the concept, let me know. Mike G 678-773-2794
  2. Welcome, I have some clients doing the same as you- where are you located?
  3. Howdy, I went to college across the border in IN at Angola about a zillion years ago. If you have any questions on cooling systems, give a shout- Mike, 678-773-2794.
  4. Good luck! My roomie’s Dad was a tugboat captain out of Morgan City and is a honorary Cajun, LOL. If you have any questions about chiller systems, give me a shout. Mike G. 678-773-2794
  5. welcome- do you know Jack Baker at Litchfield Distillery? I supplied him his cooling system. Mike
  6. Hi, I can assist you on the coolinhg syste design, selections and strategies on energy savings. Give me a call any time. Mike G 678-773-2794
  7. Good luck! If you need some mash cooling ideas, I will be coming out with an air-cooled mash cooler, a closed loop glycol cooler coupled to a shell and coil heat exchanger. Mike G
  8. Hi, l believe we exchanged emails a couple years back when you had some coolin questions. Glad to hear you’redoing mike gwell.
  9. As you know, expansion on the distilling end will also require the extra crash cooling of the mash. The new system design I propose uses a hybrid cooler (with cooling tower -like performance) with matching shell and coil as exchange. This system has several installationswhich Iwill have data to match photos. Call me anytime for thumbnail sketch of the system. Mike
  10. I have a reconditioned 10 hp. W/ 2-5compressors (one new), one new fan motor an a one year old circulating pump. Rest of unit is original 2017. CCost would be $11,000 plus freight. One month warranty on parts dicluding refrigerant. You could tie it in to a well water circuit with a plate exchanger, too. Mike G. 678-773-2794
  11. You need to get to 60F of chilled water for the still. Hybrid chillers like the one pictured will get glycol down to around 80-85 in summer, so here is where you need refrigerated devices.I have chillers in Buffalo and on the Finger Lakes,NY, if you are interested?
  12. I have supplied chillers for canning for a couple years. Usually a small glycol chiller will do the trick to chill product to temp for use on the canning line.
  13. Going back to avoiding too warm glycol return on chiller- 1. I used a two stage heat exchanger for crash cool, stg 1 uses hybrid cooler, stg 2 uses chiller with large reservoir. 2. Another case I am using a bypass to bleed chiller cold glycol to the chiller return until return temp is acceptable. Next proposed distillery will use a large hybrid cooler plus chiller but will have enough winter temps to run hybrid dry, saving 115 HP in winter use. Mash tun is 2500 Gal with two still runs per day. If you need information on the HYbrid Cooler, email me for engineering data.
  14. Yes to the reservoir for crashing. If your run calculates 30,000 Btu/hr, you can go up to a 2.5 or 3 HP. If you stretched out the run time by lowering heat, you could get it done with a 2 HP, there is a different style for most chillers, 2 HP being the cut off for the smaller sizes and 3HP for larger sizes which are for sure more hefty. Cost difference could be as much as 3 thousand dollars.
  15. 10 ton chiller way to large- more like a 2 HP. I use 10 HP for a 500 Gal pot, then add if I have fermenter loads, plus reservoir if I have mash cooling.
