Eliminate Hot Spots on a Heat Exchanger
Does your heat exchanger unevenly heat?
Because heat exchangers use indirect heat transfer through surfaces, they become coated with product or hard water scaling causing the heat exchanger to loose efficiency. Hot spots and cool spots may also occur resulting in uneven heating and poor product quality.
Due to our patented self-cleaning design, replacing a heat exchanger with direct steam injection steam cookers solves these problems. A baby formula maker increased product quality and the bottom line when they switched from a heat exchanger to our Jetcooker™.
Does your current 3 way valve steam heater scale and foul?
Some steam heaters foul and scale because of their inner workings and spring parts causing them to clog and need frequent acid baths.This reduces productivity and increases maintenance costs.
Replacing these heaters with a Hydro-Thermal 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 via choked flow causing a self-cleaning action. When properly sized for the process conditions and the application, our energy efficient steam heater virtually eliminates scaling and fouling making it the most reliable process heater on the market.
A food processing plant replaced our competitor's 3 way valve with our heater and increased up-time by 20%!
