Looks like the OP was a long time ago, but here it is anyway. Since I do a bunch of lagers I needed a way to chill faster and colder than a counterflow chiller could do. I built in a filter of sorts in between the counterflow and plate chillers to catch cold break and hop material. The counterflow cools with regular tap water, and the plate chills with glycol. I adjust temp by adusting the glycol "out" valve on the garden hose quick disconnects. Works great. My only complaint is that really the only way to clean the filter is to dismantle and scrub it. This entails disconnecting the glycol, O2, and wort hoses and moving the whole contraption to the sink to capture the invariably spilled wort. It's bulky and heavy, but it works great.

I've had trouble with wort backing up into the O2 carb stone and oxygen line. To battle that problem I just bought two gas one-way valves that will help so hopefully I don't have to sanitize the O2 line each time too.

Design flow rate is 5,423 gallons per minute. In beer terms, that's about 58,000 bottles per minute or 43,000 pints per minute or 2,400 cases per min, or 1,100 kegs per minute or 175 US beer barrels per minute - take your pick! Smile

This reminds me of an article I read in the WSJ a few years ago. Apparently, in some cities/towns in Belgium, the local governments are running underground pipelines directly from the Breweries to the Brew Pubs. Guess the streets are too narrow to handle huge delivery trucks...
