This dual stage counter-current heater exchanger can use up to two sources of water to knock down the temperature of wort post-boil. The first stage will often use tap water and the second stage will use pre-chilled water to bring the temperature of the wort lower than water can do by itself (for example, if the tap water is warmer than the desired chilled temperature of the wort). This chiller is capable of knocking down even our 15BBL brewing systems in under an hour. (See our single stage heat exchanger if one wants to use a single source of chilled water, for example, either water that is pre-chilled in one of our cold liquor tanks, or if tap water is below 50F/10C.) 

As an added benefit, if one uses the next batch's brew water to cool the wort (and transfers it into a waiting brew tank and/or hot liquor tank), less energy will be required when heating on brew day, saving electricity.  

It is easy to use these exchangers with BREWHA's latest 5-in-1 unitank. Simple connect your pump inlet to the uppermost 5-in-1 port (near the top of the wort level when boiling), and the pump discharge into the wort inlet on the heat exchanger. Connect the wort outlet of the heat exchanger back to the 5-in-1 dump port and run boiling wort through the wort side of the heat exchanger for a couple minutes to sanitize it (returning the wort back into the 5-in-1). Then start adding cold water to the water side of the heat exchanger. The wort will be chilled and should be returned to the 5-in-1 through a 'tee' connected to the bottom dump port of the tank so that as cold wort fills the tank, it displaced the boiled wort out the top port and into the heat exchanger. The 'tee' minimizes currents so that the chilled wort enters slowly in the bottom, evenly displacing the hot wort out the top, and not breaking the temperature stratified layer (hot wort exiting at the top, cold wort entering at the bottom). The tee also allows for a temperature sensor to be installed to monitor the temperature of the wort as it is returned back into the 5-in-1 unitank.
