Steam Supply Pressure:
Point-of-Use: Beef Feet
This large Midwest beef processing plant needed to maintain precise temperature control at a point-of-use hot water station for beef feet cleaning (a CCP - critical control point). As the final product is for human consumption, beef feet cleaning must reach and maintain proper temperature per USDA requirements. If 160°F [71°C] is not met, this will result in a loss of product, time, and energy.
Hydro-Thermal® replaced (3) Emech mixing valves with an H2015 EZ Skid™ system dedicated to the beef feet point-of-use station. By adding this system, the plant was able to lower its central hot water system set-point from 160°F [71°C] to 140°F [60°C].
By replacing their valves with the EZ Skid™, the processing plant saved on energy, time, maintenance and ensured product quality with an estimated $42,000/yr in energy savings.
