Mine is a counterflow chiller. The internal tube is 3/8 ID, so any system that uses the same size line has the same risk.

However this was the first time I've ever had a clogging problem in years of use. The more I think about it, I may rig some simple, sanitary mechanism so I can backflush the chiller with hot wort if this happens again.

Ex fermentum, scientia.
