Blichmann Engineering has created the ultimate plate chiller for homebrewing! Grape and Granary is proud to carry the Therminator. The Therminator is a plate chiller that helps bring the temperature of your wort quickly and more efficiently than a traditional submersible chiller. Additionally, because the unit is so compact it makes for an easy clean up after your brew day is complete.
Constructed of 316 stainless steel brazed together with pure copper (which helps dissipate heat), Blichmann's Therminator is the perfect leak-free solution to rapid wort cooling.
A counterflow plate style chiller. 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 316 stainless steel plates and fittings. Chill like the pro's.
Brazed together with pure copper in an oxygen free furnace- no potential leaks like a gasketed unit. Chills 10 gal in 5 minutes to 68 deg F using 58 deg F cooling water at 5 gpm. Ultra compact (7.5" w x 4" d x 3" h). Super low restriction - ideal for gravity feed. Easy to clean and sanitize- small enough to boil *. Garden hose thread connections on water side- no extra adaptors to buy. 1/2' male NPT fittings on wort side mates up with virtually all common hose connector types. Easier to sanitize than female fittings. Saves water- lowest water consumption on the market!
Comes with heavy gauge stainless mounting bracket.
*Boiling will not harm the Therminator but the adhesives used to affix the rubber protective edge on the back of the exchanger will not withstand the boiling temps.
*Great for use with Thrumometer (tm)
* Sold at the manufacturers minimum advertised price. Discounts do not apply to this item.
Wow Review by Jay
The move from a copper coil wort chiller to this model is like going from candles to electric light. It speeds up the brew day considerably. Which is especially appreciated at the end of the day when you're ready to get things cleaned up.
It seems the wort flows very freely through it with just gravity, but I'm using it inline with the motor and stone from the Quick-Carb set-up I already owned to also pump and oxygenate the wort. So, once the boil is done, it's only about five minutes later that I'm pitching yeast. It's a huge improvement. (Posted on 11/14/2017)
