  1. Hi All, For sale is a three segment heat exchanger with 1” tri-clamp fittings and about 60 feet of 1” copper pipe per section. The copper was brazed at all joints and has bar stock reinforcement on the coils. We used this mostly in an open cooling loop - meaning cooling water came from our well and was dumped to free flowing irrigation. We also used it with a closed loop cooling system, but to do that you have to use a return pump to avoid pressurizing the drums - the lids will pop off at a few psi. We were able to cool 185F mash to 80F at between 8 gpm and 15gpm depending on incoming water temp. We went to a larger jacketed pipe heat exchanger a few years ago. One of the bourbons we made with this won a gold medal at San Francisco, beating Buffalo Trace, Eagle Rare and several other big names. If you are looking to start a bourbon operation on a budget, this is a nice choice. Should be paired with a stout positive displacement pump (I’m a Waukesha man myself), as this is a long way to pump mash. We went through this and up a 2” pipe to the top of a 13’ tall fermenter with no issues. There are clear braided hose sections between the drums so you can see where the mash is, and the coils are tri-clamped into the drums for removal and cleaning. We would simply purge it out with clean hot water after draining the drums You can come by and look at it if you’re in the area - this is located in Durham, NC. Asking $2,750. It would cost you more than that just to buy the drums and copper tubing. DM if interested.
  2. What’s your distillery called Glenn?
  3. We still have a few bags of 500 Spiles left. Let me know if you need some
  4. Can't see any of the pictures or the document. Interested in learning more.
  5. We are selling surplus 1" x 1/4" round pointed white oak spiles for barrel sampling. These are very good quality and will not flavor your spirit the way cedar spiles will. We had to buy a huge amount to obtain them, so we're selling off the excess. Selling these in lots of 500 for $35 including first-class USPS delivery. Send me your email and we'll get your order out immediately.
  6. I think VFDs (Lenze AC/Tech is our go-to), are absolutely necessary on everything you can put them on. We use them for mash cooling pumps, reversible rolling lobe pumps, roller mill, agitators, you name it. We have saved a motor that was improperly wired once because the VFD shut it down before it could fry the windings. You can also use it as an easy way to add an emergency stop button away from your equipment.
  7. I was trying to research this unit by myself, but I wasn't able to determine if this is approved by TTB for tax gauging? If you could post a link to the TTB approval I would appreciate it. We may be interested in buying it from you.
  8. I strongly recommend going on eBay and looking for a used Waukesha pump. They will handle almost any viscosity you can throw at them and if you get a big one like the 064, it will easily pump bourbon mash at 50 gallons per minute. Just remember that a lot of bad things can happen in 10 seconds when your moving mash that fast through a 2” hose. Also, these work great when controlled by a Lenz VFD and a 5 horse gearmotor. You can literally move almost anything with them.
  9. Can you tell me the motor size and the throughput in pounds per hour on a fine grind? We are interested.
  10. Hey guys, I know you all have your fingers on the pulse of the supply chain for plastic, but you might consider this thread and lighten up a little bit: http://adiforums.com/topic/11758-small-bottles/
  11. Hi All, We overbought these 8oz PET bottles for sanitizer, and now we have more than we need. We have a few 20,000 unit lots of these for sale, and we're selling them a little over our cost. Please understand that we aren't making money on these, so only ask us for a sample if you're really serious about them. Call me at 919-323-2777 if you'd like to buy or want a sample. The price is $1.72 FOB our temporary warehouse space in Wendell, NC. These work great for sanitizer, and we've sold thousands of them filled with WHO with no issues. We fill them on our automated line, and we haven't had a single return or non-working pump. They run great on our R310 labeler as well.
  12. Hey man, I know we’re all under some stress, but there’s no need to accuse someone of hoarding anything. We ordered these some time back, and we got some extras. We’re not looking for sympathy, and if people want to try getting them from Alibaba, that’s fine. These are here in the US, and we know they’re good working items. It is possible to read something on the forum and not respond. We’re selling them at our cost, and if you want a smaller quantity you should ask instead of flaming . just saying
