More Info

From the product description, check product page for current description, price and availability:

The 220 volt Icemaster G40.1 is a versatile and complete glycol chiller that will let you chill everything from fermenters to keg beer with the proper hoses. The Icemaster features 4 stainless beer chilling lines without a pump and a pumped water line for chilling things like fermenters. It can be run with plain water, although to get maximum cooling and the ability to set it below 0 Centigrade, run it with a 20% propylene glycol solution.

This uses 390 watts of power on a 220 volt line. Casters are included for rolling the unit on smooth indoor surfaces. Also known as an Icebank Chiller. When running, this unit sounds like a loud microwave, so it should not be placed near sleeping quarters, for example. However, once it gets to its target temperature, it does not run all the time, and is completely silent between compressor cycles.

IMPORTANT: This runs on 220 volt current, and cannot be used without a step up transformer in the USA. For suitable 220 volt step up transformer, search the internet for ‘AC-1000 STEP UP’ from Siran USA and other makers (www.sinran-usa.com). These 1000 watt units are available for under $60.00

Chilling Fermenters

These 3/8” stainless barb outlets are marked WATER IN and WATER OUT and accept standard 3/8” interior diameter wort chiller tubing. The Icemaster features a generic STC-1000 centigrade temperature control (tons of stuff on the internet about this unit), and if you plan to chill a fermenter, set the STC-1000 control to your desired fermenter temperature in Celcius, so the water or glycol in the unit will be the temperature you want the ferment to be. Then hook up a cooling coil to the WATER IN and WATER OUT lines and put the coil in your fermenter to chill your ferment. You may find you have to set the STC-1000 4 degrees cooler than your target ferment temperature depending on your set up and ambient temperature.

Chilling Draft Beer
You can also think of the Icemaster as the ultimate jockey box for cooling draft beer. To do this, hook up your unrefrigerated keg beer to one of the 4 Beer Inlet Stainless lines using your beer line (these barbs are 8mm DuoTight fitting compatible). Hook up your beer faucet to the corresponding Beer Outlet stainless line, and you are ready to chill beer for immediate dispense. For the most effective beer cooling, a 20% glycol fill is recommended. One pass through one of the 4 stainless beer chilling lines will drop beer temperature by about 15 degrees.

Wort Chilling

If you use a counter flow chiller like our item L21, you can chill 5 gallons of water from 212° F to about 80° F if the unit is filled with 33° F water, and you connect the counter flow to the WATER IN and WATER Out pumped lines. Keep in mind the unit will heat up to around 75° during the chilling process. Better results will be obtained if you use a glycol mix in the Icemaster, although the glycol is a bit more of a mess. An immersion chiller is not efficient enough to work with this unit.

 

This is a multiple purpose unit.  It can be used for wort chilling, cooling draft beer and draft beer lines and for fermentation temp control.  Note that this is a 220v unit, however… you can obtain a step up transformer inexpensively.  See the product page for more info.
