'Immersion Chiller' simulation project by AnnaFless


I created a new simulation project called 'Immersion Chiller':

Cooling of hot wort using an immersion chiller

More of my public projects can be found here.


About the Project

In the beer brewing process, an immersion chiller is used to quickly cool down boiling wort to room temperature. Immersion chillers are most commonly made from coiled copper tubing and are placed inside of the boil kettle at the end of the hop boiling phase. During the chilling process, cold water is run through the coils at a constant rate to chill the wort to 25 C (77 F) in 15 minutes or less. In this analysis, the chilling process was modeled using two different analysis types: Conjugate Heat Transfer and Convective Heat Transfer.


The geometry was modeled in Onshape and imported to SimScale directly using the SimScale Connector App for Onshape.
