Max Action Posted January 22, 2014 Share Posted January 22, 2014 I'm looking at jacketed tanks to use for mashing grain, and looking for opinions on alternating steam and cold water through the same jacket for heating/cooling. I've visited other distilleries where this is being done, but I'm worried about stressing the steel with big swings in temperatures. Am I just being paranoid, or should I also be looking for a separate heat exchanger for cooling? The tank I'm currently considering is used surplus from a pharmaceutical company made by a reputable fabricator, and rated for 50 psi on the jackets.
