How cold does a glycol chiller get?

Water vs. To cite an example, 10% ethylene glycol will freeze at 25.9°F while a 60% glycol solution will freeze at -63°F.

Can you run glycol through PVC?

Can you use PVC for glycol?

Both ABS and Copper are good choices for brewery glycol piping. What should be avoided is PVC, even Sch. 80, although PVC is likely the most commonly used material in the industry primarily due to its low cost and ease of use.

How much does it cost to install glycol system?

Glycol chillers start at $1,000 and can cost as much as $5,000 depending on the length of the run of the lines (this is dictated by the distance from the walk-in to the tap handles). A longer run will require more and stronger pumps, which increases the cost of your cooling system.

What temperature should I set my glycol chiller?
