Fermentation Chiller- An Ultimate Buying Guide by TopChiller

Fermentation Chiller is the most popular glycol cooling chiller industrial application for the fermentation process.

When it comes to fermenting, the temperature is one of the most important steps and factors that is regulated by the Fermentation Chiller.

Fermentation Chiller is designed with features of high efficiency, low cost, durable cooling systems that can be operated by anyone after simple explanation.

Due to easy installation and low maintenance, it is highly recommended for industrial applications.

If you want to purchase a Fermentation Chiller, you will need a buying guide to help you in detail about every aspect of it.

This guide will completely guide you about perspectives of Fermentation Chiller and surely help you in purchasing and installation.

Let’s start it.

What is Fermentation Chiller?

Fermentation Chiller is an electrochemical glycol cooling device that is being used to adequately maintain a certain temperature that is suitable for fermentation.

Fermentation Chiller allows you to control your fermenting environment at a low electrical consumption cost compared to a ferment cooling refrigerator.

A chemical process that proceeds anaerobically to produce different products like wine, alcohol, and beer in presence of microbes is called fermentation.

Microbes work efficiently at a specific temperature that is being maintained in a fermenter through a Fermentation Chiller.

The process of fermenting releases heat, if the brew becomes too hot, flavors can be affected, alcohol levels may change, and yeast can die completely. So a Fermentation Chiller is mandatory to control temperature.

Fermentation Chiller is also referred to as fluid or glycol chiller and is commonly used in Brewery, Winery, and Distilled Spirits production operations.

The glycol cooling system used in the fermentation process is a critical part of producing safe and high-quality consumer products.

What are the Main Components of a Fermentation Chiller?

There are seven main components of a Fermentation Chiller working on the same principle as other Chillers.

  1. Refrigerant Tank

The refrigerant tank acts as the main storage unit for refrigerants thus permitting you to release it in different capacities.

The refrigerant tank of the Fermentation Chiller is also available in different capacities depending on the size of the chiller you may use.

  1. Compressor

The compressor increases the pressure and speed of a refrigerant thus enabling it to travel around the fermentation.

There are different types of compressors that you can use including, screw compressors, centrifugal compressors, and scroll compressors depending upon the requirements.

  1. Distribution Unit

The distribution unit supplies all the fluids that you need within the Fermentation Chiller.

The distribution unit consists of pipes and tanks of different sizes and types to store and supply the required fluids.

  1. Control Panel

You will use the control panel to construct, program, and monitor all the operations within the Fermentation Chiller.

The Control Unit of the Fermentation Chiller has a touch screen and a remote-control system that assists you to perform all the tasks even from a distance.

  1. Evaporator

The Evaporator system is directed to collect the heat that is released from the main fermentation unit. It has different parts such as distribution pipes which transfer the heat for extraction and elimination to the condenser Unit.

  1. Condenser

The condenser unit is the key component that will help in the removal of heat from the Fermentation Chiller.

In condenser water or air both can be used as the main chilling agent that will carry away the heat from the system.

  1. Expansion Valves

You will use the expansion valves to control the flow of the refrigerant back to the compressor unit of the Fermentation Chiller.

Expansion valves lower the pressure of the refrigerant and allow it to move back to the compressor in controlled quantities.

Fermentation Chiller Compressor

What is the Working Principle of a Fermentation Chiller?

Fermentation Chiller working is based on the following principles of operation;

  1. Phase Change

A liquid coolant (glycol) changes into a gas when heated, and when the gaseous coolant is supercooled, it condenses back into a liquid glycol.

  1. Heat Flow

Heat energy flows from an area of high concentration to an area of lower concentration and maintains ambient temperature.

  1. Boiling Point

Pressure is being reduced over glycol liquid, decreases its boiling point and increasing pressure increases its boiling point.

Stage 1: The refrigeration circuit is a crucial part that selects how a Fermentation Chiller Works. The refrigeration cycle initiates with the compressor unit. The compressor compresses the refrigerant glycol and provides speed and pressure to flow in the evaporator

Stage2: Refrigerant flows over fermenter fluids in tubes, absorbs heat from brewing liquid, and converts into vapors (gaseous form)

Stage3: Gaseous refrigerant moves in the condenser. Condensers contain either chilled water or air to exchange heat. It will retake heat from refrigerant converting it again into liquid form.

Stage 4: Expansion valves are used to release excess heat of the fermenter directly out from the system. These valves release heat from condensing to the ambient air.

Stage 5: Refrigerant again moves towards compressor having low pressure. The compressor again provides high pressure and speed to the refrigerant to repeat the whole cycle.
