Plate chillers are the most coveted of the chillers due to their high efficiency, efficacy, and small footprint. The Therminator™ is the fastest way to chill your wort to yeast pitching temperature and get your fermentation off to a quick, bacteria-free start. All of the plates and fittings are going to be 316 stainless steel and brazed together using pure copper in an oxygen-free furnace. The Therminator is identical to commercial brewery chilling setups and can chill 10 gallons of wort in 5 minutes to 68˚ F using 58˚ F cooler water at a rate of 5 GPM. This makes it ideal for southern climates where the groundwater during the summer can be tough to work with. As already mentioned, this unit is super compact and comes in at 7.5" W, 4" D, 3" H. The super low restriction makes this unit workable as a gravity feed and it’s enough to boil for sanitizing! The unit also now comes with a mounting bracket AND Blichmanns barbed Quick Disconnects. The water inlet/outlet are outfitted with garden hose connections so there are no extra fittings necessary. The wort inlet/outlet is outfitted with 1/2” NPT fittings.
