Brand New $340 obo

Duda Diesel Wort Chiller 60 Plate Heat Exchanger Stainless Steel Copper Brazed B3-52A

This unit has 1" male NPT fittings.
Other identical items are listed on ebay for over $529 plus over $28 shipping!!!

I will offer *****FREE SHIPPING***** in the continental U.S. using FedEx Ground or a similar method.

I purchased this unit directly from the distributor a couple months ago for use in a small commercial brewery. In the mean while, bought a unit that had sanitary fittings. This unit never left the original shipping box and is brand new, never used. However, the vendor would not refund or even partially refund my money(!!!), so it is up for sale. My loss is your gain!!

This purchase will include (2) street elbows (1" male x 1" female) if needed for plumbing adapters. These alone are a $23 value. Again, both items are brand new, never used. I could also offer tri clover adapters if anyone needs sanitary fittings.

Specs from the vendor:

Welding Material 99.9% Copper Corrosion Resistance SS304 has good general corrosion resistance to a range of organic and in-organic fluids. It will have poor resistance to sulfuric and hydrochloric acids. Crevice corrosion may also occur when chlorides (salts) are present in the fluid. Since chlorides are in all natural sources of water it is best to use distilled water whenever possible. Typically, a unit will last about 10 years with regular tap water depending on salt content. Not recommended for use with salt water.

Is this still available?

Would it work for 15 gal batches? Or be just WAY to big?

I am still trying to sell that heat exchanger. We bought it for a larger system, but it is impossible to go too big. You will simply need less water (or other cooling media) on the cooling side. I know you would love this piece of equipment and I'm letting it go for less than 1/2 of what we paid for!! Let me know if you are interested, I need to sell it this week!! Thanks.
