In recent years, the demand for plant-based milk alternatives has skyrocketed, transcending beyond vegan and dietary-conscious consumers. And while this “milk” isn’t really milk, but more of a plant juice, their popularity continues to rise. In 2020, approximately 35% of American households embraced plant-based milk, and this trend continues to surge. While plant-based milk options […]
When it comes to optimizing shell and tube heat exchangers, a multitude of factors comes into play. These elements wield significant influence over not just the size of the exchanger but also its performance, efficiency, and overall cost. Think of it as a delicate equilibrium, where variables such as heat transfer rates, fluid flow velocities, […]
Many types of high-quality metal components benefit from electropolishing. This electrochemical finishing process is used to create smooth, ultra-clean surfaces that perform better and last longer. To help you determine if electropolishing is the right treatment option for your needs, this blog will discuss how the process works, as well as its key benefits and […]
In order to optimize efficiency and safety in production processes, many industries rely on shell and tube heat exchangers to transfer heat from one place to another. As you review your process requirements, a water source is often a top consideration and factor based on the product running through the shell and tube heat exchanger. […]
Designing a Shell and Tube Heat Exchanger for Viscous Applications When designing a shell and tube heat exchanger for viscous products, such as a whey application in the dairy industry or an asphalt application in the roofing industry, there are several options that can be considered to ensure efficient and effective heat transfer. Some of […]
Tim Tolley, Principal of Process Engineering at Excel Engineering, shares why he’s been choosing to work with Enerquip since 1997. “In the 24 years that I’ve been using your equipment, there has not been one piece of equipment that has ever had to be replaced,” says Tim Tolley.
Understanding Sanitary Standards It is important to understand the standards and code requirements that apply to processing equipment. And as industries grow and evolve, more regulation is sure to follow. It’s wise to get ahead of the curve, by designing in features that are preferred by the FDA and other state and federal agencies upfront. […]
As more consumers seek out raw milk, instances of foodborne illness linked to raw milk consumption are going up.
A few aspects of this are ensuring your process is designed to prevent and detect potential contamination and that your equipment is adequate for the job and thoroughly cleaned.
