Convection, Capacity, Glycol, Cooling, Conduction, Flow
Cooling in a modern brewery is generally provided by glycol whereas in older breweries ammonia was the refrigerant of choice. Its use is now very uncommon due to the significant safety risks associated with it. Therefore this lecture focuses on the basic concepts and practicalities of glycol cooling in the brewery.
