Why one stage heat exchanger becomes popular in wort cooling?
Wort is cooled by plate hear exchanger. There are one stage and two stages heat exchanger for wort cooling.
Previously, two stages heat exchanger is much more popular.
While one stage heat exchanger become fashion in those days by considering energy conservation and control.
Here let’s find why one stage heat exchanger becomes more and more popular:
1. One stage heat exchanger use cold brewing water as refrigerating medium instead of alcohol or glycol.
As we all know we have to throw all beer if alcohol or glycol leakage.
2. One stage cooling can improve the utilization of heat energy as one stage cooling can get high temperaturehot water tank
3. One stage cooling is much easier to control as cold brewing water have more stable medium specification than two stages cooling.
4. One stage cooling do good for chiller as one stage cooling heat exchanger have 45% higher exchanging area.
5. One stage cooling can salve 30-40% energy
