The Therminator™ from Blichmann Engineering 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 a tremendously low restriction, making it ideal for gravity feed (no pumps required).
The Blichmann items ship directly from the manufacturer. Please allow 1-3 weeks for delivery.
We strongly recommend purchasing the optional backflush assembly for use in cleaning the Therminator.
While The Therminator™ can be gravity fed, a pump, like our Northern Brewer Stainless Steel Wort Pump, can help increase flow rates through the chiller and allow for more mounting options.
