here is a clean one cut apart. Most breweries have a plate and frame instead of the brazed ones we use because they can take it apart and clean.

That image should put some concern out there about the use of plate chillers. There are a bazillion spots inside it that have very low flow with eddy currents. Because of that, they are difficult to completely clean. IMHO.

I've posted a similar cutaway image before:



I'm a firm believer in immersion & counter flow chillers.

Wow, if the therminator didn't have a good track record and i seen this picture before i bought it, I never would have. Like stated above, there are way to many places for trub to get stuck in and never removed.
