Heat exchangers are versatile pieces of equipment designed for use in a variety of applications and industries. These integral heating system elements work as part of an industrial heating system to regulate the temperature of viscous fluids, like oil and asphalt. While they come in a number of different styles and designs, including bayonet immersion […]
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. […]
A custom heat exchanger design allows a salsa manufacturer to effectively complete process cooling of the product and expeditiously clean-in-place between batches and shifts. California-based Southwest Thermal Technology was approached by one of its OEM customers to provide a shell-and-tube cooler to chill a client’s salsa prior to bottling. The request was more challenging than […]
Industrial heat exchangers can be used for a variety of purposes in a number of industries. Most often, they are used for heating viscous fluids and materials, and they’re incorporated as a component of a larger industrial heating system. Curious about your options when it comes to industrial heat exchangers? Whether you’re in the market […]
In 2012, a producer of pure aloe for medicinal and nutritional products approached Enerquip with a unique cooling problem. In the tropical region where aloe is harvested, the ambient temperatures hover near 95° F (35°C) most of the time. This tropical climate was accelerating bacterial growth in the product, which was lowering its value and […]
Fall and winter present the perfect opportunity to address any maintenance concerns.
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.
When the pressure drop is well below the allowable maximum, the heat exchanger may not be reaching its full heat transfer rate potential.
Choosing the right heat transfer fluid for your operation involves many considerations. Here are some key details to know about HTFs.
