Direct Steam Heats Water on Demand
Does your plant run out of hot water?
Running out of hot water can lead to a loss of production and inconvenient plant shutdowns. Each of these plants experienced production slow-downs until they replaced their heat exchanger with a Hydro-Thermal highly engineered fluid heating valve.
Meat processing plant: the 3rd shift cleanup crew constantly ran out of hot water during wash-downs.
Can topping factory: the water was not always at the exact temperature for safe UDSA and FDA regulation top-off.
Dairy plant: the water ran out or was not always at the right temperature for USDA approved pasteurization.
How do you get enough utility hot water?
If you are currently heating utility or process water with a heat exchanger, it will be a smart investment to install a direct steam injection heater from Hydro-Thermal. Not only will you have all the hot water you need, but the direct steam injection heater needs far less maintenance and upkeep than any heat exchanger on the market and will save money in energy costs and maintenance down-time.
Using a steam mixing valve, known as direct contact steam injection, provides utility or process water on demand and at almost instantaneous set-point temperatures (even with a central hot water system that has multiple stations, ask us how). It is 100% energy efficient and the most economical and hassle-free heating method for all industrial hot water needs.
What do you need to do to replace a heat exchanger?
We know there is some up-front planning and work that goes into any utility or process fluid heating change, so we've made it as simple and hassle-free as possible by designing standard skids with common pipe sizes.
These compact skids, the EZ Skid™, easily plumb in to existing piping, water and steam supply lines to provide unlimited hot water at exacting temperatures. However, if you are looking for just a heater, our engineering staff will provide you with the most efficient EZ Heater® model and our technicians are available for on-site start-up services.
