Brewery glycol chillers American BCK Series American Chillers

Brewery chillers used in the fermentation and pull down (cold crashing) process typically circulate 28°F degree glycol for 33°F degree beer. Brewery chillers run at temperatures below 32°F (freezing) and thus require propylene glycol (food grade HVAC type anti-freeze)

Brewery glycol chillers American BCK Series

1 HP to 80 HP

Packaged Brewery Chiller with tank and pump all in one package

    • Popular with brewers because of its all-in-one design
    • Offers a simplified installation
    • Set the chiller, run wires, connect the fluid supply and return lines, fill with water/glycol and start-up

Modular Brewery Chillers with tank and pump(s) ship separate. Ideal for growing breweries

    • Allows a brewery with rapid growth plans to add chiller modules as the brewery grows, without replacing the chiller
    • Matching present needs without over sizing – saves on budget and electricity
    • When the roof can’t support the weight of the glycol tank and pump(s)
    • When chiller is located a long distance from brew tanks
    • Can be added to an existing system as a booster chiller
    • Our sales engineers can help select components that work best for each brewery

Split Brewery Chillers keep the hot condenser air outdoors and all fluid components indoors. The indoor and outdoor units are connected with refrigeration line sets

  • Multiple circuits are available in single phase power for sizes above 5 tons when 3 phase power not available

American Brewery Chillers are engineered with premium refrigeration components, similar to the critical systems required to run supermarket refrigerators and freezers. We use Copeland Scroll Compressors (in most sizes) which are superior to hermetic compressors (used by many competitors) in reliability and efficiency and comes with a 5 year warranty.

Each American Chiller ships with a chiller remote control panel for indoor installation so the brew master can easily control the chiller.
