Description
 

The Therminator™ is the fastest way to chill your wort to yeast pitching temperature and get your fermentation off to a quick, bacteria-free start.

  • All 316 stainless steel plates and fittings.
  • Chill like the pros, as the Therminator™ is identical to commercial brewery chillers.
  • Brazed together with pure copper in an oxygen-free furnace, with no potential leaks like a gasketed unit!
  • Chill 10 gallons in 5 minutes to 68°F using 58°F cooling water at 5 gallons per minute (gpm).
  • Ultra compact (7.5" W, 4" D, 3" H).
  • Super-low restriction is ideal for gravity feed.
  • Easy to clean and sanitize, small enough to boil!*
  • Garden-hose thread connections on the water side.
  • 1/2" male NPT fittings on wort side mates up with virtually all common hose-connector types, and they're easier to sanitize than female fittings!
  • With the lowest water consumption on the market, it saves you money!
  • Comes with heavy-gauge stainless mounting bracket.

Blichmann Engineering is committed to continuous product improvement, so design details may change from the photos shown.

The Quick Release Bracket allows the Therminator™ to mount and dismount with ease.

Connection options?
On the wort side, you have a few choices to get from typical 1/2" ID silicone hose into the two 1/2" male NPT wort ports.

  • CamA if you use camlock quick disconnects. We also have a couple plate chiller connection kits available that bundle typical parts (including a premium option that adds a digital thermometer to monitor
  • BLQD-A if you use that type of quick disconnect.
  • Female NPT hose barb - This is the absolute cheapest way to go but not recommended.


On the cooling water side, the unit has 3/4 male garden hose thread (note that this is NOT NPT pipe thread but the very specific American Garden Hose standard). The unit does include a Female to Female adapter for the cold water in so you may thread a garden hose in directly to both the in and out ports. However, this is particularly cumbersome and some form of quick disconnect is very convenient. Hardware store type garden hose QDs will work for a short while but most use gaskets that cannot handle the hot output temperatures. We highly recommend putting our Camlock CamGHA fittings on both ports and using the mating CamGHB and CamGHD for the garden hose connections.
