Tripe Washing

A Midwest beef processing plant needed to maintain accurate temperature control and product quality for tripe washing in batch tanks. They were utilizing a direct fire heater to take the central hot water loop up to 155°F [68°C]. They then needed to augment that to 200°F [93°C] for proper tripe washing at fluctuating flow rates from 0 to 30gpm [0-7 m³/hr] running for 5 minutes and then off for 5 minutes. A competitive direct steam injection heater was doing this augmenting, but they were struggling to keep temperature due to scaling and performance issues, which is critical to the product quality and overall batch process.

SOLUTION

The end user replaced the competitor DSI heater with a H2010 EZ Heater® Skid system to assure accurate temperature control throughout the process. They now sustain precise temperature control, ensures product quality and eliminate excessive maintenance.

GOAL

• Maintain accurate temperature control
• Improve product quality
• Eliminate scaling
• Decrease batch time

ACCOMPLISHMENTS

• Eliminated over 1 hr/day in maintenance
• Precise temperature control
• Total uptime with no product loss
