ZChillers are double tube counter flow wort chillers. The interior tubing is a Spiral Star Design. This spiraling increases the surface area of copper that’s in contact with your wort. It also increases turbulence. More movement across more surface area means your wort chills quickly.
from AIH: “The ZChiller utilizes the enhanced thermal gradients of a counterflow wort chiller with the added benefit of greater surface area for heat transfer. Instead of a simple, cylindrical inner tube, the ZChiller utilizes a unique, convoluted â€œspiral starâ€ design that enables superior heat transfer out of the wort as well as unparalleled cooling uniformity for consistent cold breaks and record cooling times. The chilling ability matches or exceeds that of plate chillers without the downside of disruptive clogs.”
These advantages result in:
- Reduced chilling time.
- More efficient cold break to remove unwanted proteins and particulates from your beer.
- Cleaner aroma profile because of decrease in DMS production, giving you a more pronounced aroma that you have worked so hard for.
- Easier cleaning, especially when compared to a plate chiller.
