Avoid Shutdowns with Direct Steam Injection
Government food safety and sanitation regulations require water at exact temperatures. Whether your process requires 140°F or 180°F, the Hydroheater® can reach set-point temperature quickly and hold that temperature precisely to avoid unscheduled shutdowns. Our expert engineers apply our proprietary direct steam injection technology to help you replace old process heating technology, such as heat exchangers, to meet your most difficult heating requirements. By replacing your heat exchanger or sparger with a Hydro-Thermal® Hydroheater you can eliminate costly shutdowns that can last a few hours or for days if USDA regulations are not met.
|"Our batch cooking process goes so much quicker and smoother since we replaced that other three-way heating valve with a Hydro-Thermal water heater. Our tanks fill faster and the exact temperature cooks our batches faster too. We've increased production 32% with this new steam cooker. This is the most cost effective heat transfer technology we've ever used."
