Item Description

Our Glycol chiller allows users to achieve lower temperatures than our standard line of chillers. Our triple helix copper coil allows us to keep the setup small yet powerful. The glycol chiller is suitable for applications down to about 5F depending on the heat load. This makes it ideal for the brewing market, along with many other low temperature applications. The built in controller maintains the temperature of the glycol at the set point.  It can be used as a typical laboratory bath chiller or by using a submersible pump, chilled glycol can be pumped out to equipment requiring cooling. There are 8 inlet and 8 outlet 3/8″ tubing fittings in the lid of the reservoir along with an addition hole to run the power cord for a pump through. The insulated reservoir holds 3 gallons of glycol.

Depending on application (desired operating temp/freeze point) you can use any combination of water/glycol you prefer. It’s typical for brewing applications to use about 40-50% glycol to water.  On our testing down to -14F we used a 50/50 mix without any freezing issues.


For brewing applications:

The chiller can be used on up to 8 fermenters at the same time.

This chiller is intended for maintaining fermentation temperatures or crash cooling and is not recommended for dropping wort from boiling temps. It is a common practice to either use a 2 stage system where the chiller pre-cools tap water that then cools the boiling wort, or tap water is used first to drop the temps down to about 100F, then switch over to using the chiller.

It is typical to use one pump per fermenter or vessel you wish to cool. In this type of setup each pump requires an individual controller to turn each pump on/off independently. The controller on the Glycol Chiller will regulate the temperature of the glycol (for example 28F), the controllers on the pumps would regulate the temperature of each vessel independently by regulating the flow of 28F glycol to that vessel.

Cooling provided:

  • 5250 BTU @ 28F


Sizing a Glycol Chiller for Brewing:

These suggestions assume a decently insulated vessel (neoprene jacket or better) in a modest ambient temperature of 80F. If your setup is uninsulated or running in hotter ambient conditions, you’ll need to allow for more BTU per hour. The cold crash is figured for about 18 hours. If you want a faster crash you’ll need to add more BTU’s per hour. When in doubt, use the suggestions for a vessel 1-2 sizes bigger than your actual size.

2 reviews for 1 HP Glycol Chiller

  1. Sean Paschall (verified owner)

    We use this 1HP glycol chiller to maintain fermenter temps in our 3 bbl brewery.
    This compact unit has the ability to maintain accurate temp control on 3 active fermenters including a brite tank holding at 34° during carbonation.
    We are now able to ferment in one, lager in a second fermenter, and cold crash simultaneously.
    Amazing product, and professional customer service. We highly recommend.

  2. Zachary Fearnside

    Chiller works wonderfully out of the box. Eric at Penguin Chillers has been incredibly attentive and worked with us tirelessly to address any issues in field. Will continue using them and have already introduced them to a few of our clients!
