What is a Glycol Chiller System?

A glycol cooling system is a type of long-draw system that is commonly used in bars, taverns, and pubs. In general, a long-draw system helps provide ice-cold beer to places relatively far from where kegged beer is stored. To put it simply, a long-draw system is designed for high-volume beer dispensing in that it depends on a walk-in cooler to store tapped kegs of beer, beer lines that run several feet, and a means of keeping the beer cold between the walk-in and the dispensing point.

There are two common types of beer systems used in bars, taverns, pubs, and and even restaurants to provide cold draft beer to customers or patrons: forced-air systems and glycol beer-cooling systems.  

In a glycol cooler system, beer passes through tubes to a chiller plate and becomes cold. The chilling process works by forcing a cold liquid (glycol) along tubes to a chiller plate, which is usually cast aluminum, and then through the tap system, thereby keeping the beer cold. The glycol never actually comes in contact with the beer.

How Do Glycol Cooling Systems Work?

So how exactly does a glycol beer chiller work? Glycol is non-evaporating refrigeration liquid. Its properties allow it to achieve cold temperatures without freezing. In a glycol beer system, the multiple beer lines are combined side by side with glycol lines, which are, in turn, bundled inside an insulating foam rubber tube. By chilling the liquid glycol and pumping it into lines that run alongside the beer lines, the beer is chilled and maintained within one degree of the temperature in the walk-in cooler.

Advantages of Glycol Chillers Compared to Forced-Air Chillers

We at Rapids Wholesale recommend glycol-cooled draft beer systems for those looking for longer beer runs for their tavern, pub, or bar. Why? Forced-air systems work great but are often limited to shorter beer lines. Glycol cooling systems, on the other hand, work well at greater distances and are excellent for beer lines that run up to twenty-five feet or more. It is common knowledge that beer should be kept cold all the way to the faucet or dispenser; otherwise, the quality, taste, and texture of the beer will greatly suffer. Glycol beer systems that are properly designed, installed, maintained, and used properly work perfectly and waste little beer. This means the ideal chilled draft beer that will make your customers happy.
