Product Details

The Shirron wort plate chiller is a highly-efficient, compact plate-type wort chiller similar in design to the Therminator. This chiller is made of 10 plates of 316 stainless steel that have been brazed together with pure copper in an oxygen-free furnace. The Shirron Chiller has a bit less surface area than the Therminator, but in our testing it was still very effective at rapidly reducing wort to pitching temperatures.

This chiller has 1/2" NPT threaded male hookups for the wort, and male Garden Hose fittings for the chilling and waste water. Wort may be pumped or gravity fed through the chiller.

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

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

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

had a therminator , worked well, but the plates are close together causing blockages , THE SHIRRION HAS MORE separate plates ???

Best Answer: The Shirron has about half the number of plates as a therminator, which means they are tighter together. Long story short, the shirron is easier to clog than the therminator in my experience, but both are subject to clogging when pushing very hoppy wort through them. A per filter is recommended for both chillers. Otherwise the chillzilla is much less apt to clogging

What else do I need to use this?
Ryan K on May 13, 2015
Best Answer: You need two 1/2 threaded barbed fittings to attach hosing, one for in and one for out. The water in and out are standard garden hose threads. It is difficult to use a plate chiller without a kettle with ball valve to feed the hot wort into the chiller. While gravity can provide all the force needed to chill, it works best when using a high temp pump to feed the chiller. Those two, while not required, make its use much easier.
