This coil has two vertical bends going up. This configuration is not only used for HERMS systems where brewers don't want to drill a hole in the sidewall but fermentors as well. The coil can be submersed in a fermentor through the lid and glycol or cold water is pumped through the coil to maintain the temperature. The tubing is made out of 304/304L stainless and is measured 3/8" OD (Outside Diameter). This coil has a 8" Outside Diameter and the height is made per your request. You must note in the comment section upon checkout the overall height from bottom coil to top connections. If you would like spacing between the coils for easy cleaning, please note this in the comment section as well. No additional comments will leave the coil compressed for shipping and customer can space coils to their requirements.
Using a HERMS coil eliminates the need for a burner under your mash to maintain temperature and it will also help clarify your wort. While you mash, your wort will travel through the coil which is installed in your HLT (Hot Liquor Tank). The HLT will be hot and ready for sparging so you can also maintain your mash temperature with this as well. While your running your wort through your coil your also filtering giving you great clarity. HERMS systems help increase your efficiency and get you the original gravity your trying to achieve.
That's not all a HERMS coil can do, it can also cool! Simply fill your HLT with ice and you've creating a cooling coil!
The maximum overall height listed in our shopping cart is set at 20" Coils with any additional height will require a larger box which can increase shipping costs
