Product Details

The Therminator is a stainless steel plate-type wort chiller, a miniature version of the plate chillers that the pros use. It is, unquestionably, the fastest and most efficient way to chill your wort to yeast pitching temperature.

The Therminator can chill 10 gallons of boiling wort to pitching temperature within 5 minutes when using 58°F cooling water at 5 gpm. This super-efficient chiller uses less water than any other chiller on the market, and is especially great for brewers in southern climates!

The plates and fittings are all 316 stainless steel; they have been brazed together with pure copper in an oxygen-free furnace. There is no potential for leaking, as in a gasketed unit. The fittings for the water are garden hose threads, and the wort side uses 1/2" male NPT fittings. This chiller has tremendously low restriction, making it ideal for gravity feed (no pumps required).

We strongly recommend purchasing the optional backflush assembly for use in cleaning the Therminator.

High temperature Thermoplastic or Silicone tubing with a set of Quick Disconnects will add the ultimate flexibility during the brew day. 

While the Therminator can be gravity fed, a pump, like our Steelhead pump, can help control flow rates through the chiller and allow for more mounting options.

Are there any special precautions you need to take when adding chocolate to the boil and using a plate chiller?
SkipperJack on Jun 30, 2015
Best Answer: You just want to make sure its gets fully dissolved and is not solid anymore. Besides that, the chocolate should not pose a concern, unless adding nibs. Then you would want a prefilter

So do I need a pump for my wort when using this or can I just do a gravity feed? And if I can just use gravity how do I get all my wort thru the chiller?
A shopper on May 3, 2015
Best Answer: Yes, you can gravity feed the Therminator. You simply need to make sure that your kettle is situated up above the chiller and the chiller is up above the fermentor, so that you have sufficient flow all the way through. Placing a clamp or a valve between the chiller and the fermentor can help control the flow for better chilling performance. A pump can help to eliminate lifting a heavy and boiling hot kettle though.

In order to gravity feed the Therminator is it necessary to have a kettle with a valve? Is there a way to use this with a kettle without a valve?
A shopper on Jun 4, 2015
Best Answer: A valve is really ideal, so that you can control the flow of the wort and get the best temperature performance. Secondly, many of the plastic racking cane options, including the auto siphon, can be damaged by high temperatures. If your kettle does not have a valve built in, you can add one using one of the weldless kettle valve kits. You simply need to drill a hole in the kettle to do so.
