Sizing chilling system


Recommended Posts

Are there any standard formulas for properly sizing a general purpose cooling system? Our equipment is as followed:


* 300 G steam jacketed still

* 300 G mash-tun

* 1,000,000 btu steam boiler


* Product condenser: 3-8 G/min flow rate

* 4 jacketed 300 G fermenters

* Flow-through wort chiller

Assume 1-2 runs a day.

I understand it's a balance between chiller capacity and resevoir size. To draw from someone elses analogy i found here: if the boiler is the engine, what would be the most cost efficient way to "break" this system? I'm thinking a small chiller with a large water resevoir...what size though?
