Can I use Star San to safely sanitize in the inside of my copper counter-flow chiller? If so, what would be the considerations for its use?

Starsan Useage

Yes, you can use it and here ya go...

All surfaces should be cleaned and rinsed before sanitizing with STAR SAN.

Directions: A dilution of 1 ounce to 5 gallons of water, STAR SAN will provide 200 ppm of dodecylbenzenesulfonic acid. After 1 to 2 minutes contact time, drain sanitizing solution equipment thoroughly. If used at a rate of more than 200 ppm, a potable rinse is required.

Part Soaking: Use 1 ounce of STAR SAN per 5 gallons of water. Parts must have contact with solution for 30 seconds and put on wet. When solution begins to cloud, sweeten with Star San or Phosphoric Acid. Solution must remain at a pH at 3 or below to maintain proper sanitizing level.

DANGER: Corrosive to skin and eye, contains Phosphoric Acid. Harmful if swallowed. Do not get in eyes, on skin or on clothing. Wear protective goggles and clothing when using. Avoid contamination of food. DO NOT MIX STAR SAN with chlorinated cleaners as chlorine gas will result. See Label for more precautionary information.

For contact with skin and eye, flush with cool water for 15 minutes. If redness develops, seek medical attention.
