Soup Plant Increased Up-time by 20% and Saved Thousands in Maintenance Costs
An internationally known soup and juice plant replaced our competitors 3-way steam valve because it failed monthly due to clogging issues. The Hydro-Thermal direct steam injection flow control valve is superior due to its patented self-cleaning design. Replacing our competitors 3-way valve with our Hydroheater solves this problem because it is the only one with a unique stem plug and diffuser allowing it to inject precise amounts of steam at sonic velocity; causing a self-cleaning action. By installing our direct steam injection heater, the plant's up-time increased by over 20% and saved thousands of dollars in monthly repair costs.
As important to the plant as increased production was their need for consistent hot water into four jacketed vessels in their cooking process. The EZ Heater® provides this consistency, even at varying flow rates, and also provides water at the exact temperatures needed. The water also heats to set-point temperature almost instantaneously. Since these units were installed, no unscheduled down-time due to our heater has been reported.
