ThatDrunkenBird Posted April 29, 2018 Share Posted April 29, 2018 I'm considering using something like this https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B073ZNHVZN/ref=ask_ql_qh_dp_hza for chill filtration of about 150 gallons of product at any one time...I have a 3 ton chiller with a 1hp pump for cooling and a pneumatic diaphragm pump to circulate spirits. I'm concerned about the flow rate of the pumps damaging the heat exchanger, especially the diaphragm pump with its inconsistent, pulsing action. My understanding is these things are best suited for low-pressure, low flow situations. A little background...last year I was able to use one of my jacketed fermenters as a chill tank. We've stepped up production and that's no longer an option. Over the winter Mother Nature was kind to me with cold nights to chill the product but Spring is here and I'm on a budget.
