PHE-SWP500 is the brazed (not be dismantled) plate heat exchanger with architecture B28x86. This equipment is used for the cooling of beer wort with maximal capacity 500 liters of beer wort per one hour, cooling down from 90°C to 25°C (if cold water 12°C is used as coolant) or from 25°C to 6°C (if glycol -4°C is used) . Two pieces of this PHE (double PHE system) are able to cool wort from 90°C to 6°C .
Description of the wort cooling process :
This is a necessary equipment for preparation of wort produced by each brewhouse. The single-stage plate heat exchanger is intended for cooling of the wort from 90 ° C to 25°C (a fermenting temperature for production of “ale” beer type) using the cooling medium with temperature from 12°C to 15°C (cold water).
If you use a double system (two pieces of this plate heat exchanger) then the second PHE system is intended for cooling of the wort from 25°C to 6°C (a fermenting temperature for production of “lager” beer type) using the cooling medium with temperature from -4°C (glycol).
The heat exchanger is not equipped with temperature and flow sensors and control elements.
Technical specifications :
- This equipment consists of stainless steel plates (AISI 316) . All parts in contact with the beer are in stainless steel.
- The heat exchangers cannot be dismounted.
- Dimensions : 526/117/183 mm
- All fittings are with outer thread 1+1/4″ (5/4″).
- Maximal pressure 40 bar
- Weight 16 kg
Cooling or heating of beer wort up to 500 lt/hour from 90°C to 25°C (single PHE system) or from 90°C to 6°C (double PHE system).
