Ebay has the Duda diesel 40 plate chiller shipped for less Than $150. It would seem a step up from the 30 plates going around with the sponsors ( :ph34r: ) and factoring postage probably cheaper ...... If its as good quality. So folks anyone use one or just care to share some thoughts on the piece?

So is a smaller unit with more plates more efficient than larger unit with less plates?

You'd have to work out the difference in surface area I suppose.

Well working on 0.012m2 per plate so 120cm2 x 40 = 4800cm2

The mashmaster 30 plate has an area of 6440cm2.

So costs more and has less surface area.

Thanks Keifer
Where did you get the specs / surface area for the MM30?

According to Duda Diesal info:

  • More heat exchanger length means much higher efficiency. The longer the better.
  • More plates on a heat exchanger adds some extra heat transfer, but is intended to reduce pressure drop. Pressure drop reduces flow rate which reduces heat transfer.
