Commercial and industrial water heating systems are never exactly the same, which is why RECO USA often custom designs a system to meet a client’s particular requirements, as we did for this client project. In this article, we’ll dive into why we installed two 950-gallon stainless steel vessels with double wall heat exchangers for a national food manufacturer.
Varying Hot Water Demand Swings
It’s not uncommon for a food manufacturer to have massively different load needs throughout the day. In the instance of this manufacturer, their demand for domestic hot water varied from 10 GPM to 600 GPM over a very short period of time.
The client uses this domestic water in their batch process and for the washdown and clean-up of equipment, which is why demand spikes are typically high but fairly short lived.
Installing Two 950-Gallon Solid Duplex Stainless Steel Vessels
In order to solve the problem of varying load demand, we supplied two 950-gallon solid duplex, stainless steel vessels with double-walled heat exchangers, which can produce hot water at the rate of 600 gallons per minute (GPM).
Armed with 1,900-gallons of hot water and a system capable of producing an astonishing 600 gallons per minute, we made running out of a hot water a thing of the past for this food manufacturer.
How Long Does It Take to Build a System Like This?
Original planning started over a year before the project officially began, which is not uncommon for large-scale hot water projects like this one. However, from the time we got the official purchase order, it took us approximately 3 months to design, build, and ship the tanks to the client’s location, which is also here in the United States.
In addition, we put these vessels through the rigorous ASME quality control standards that we put all our vessels through.
Was the Client Satisfied with their New Hot Water System?
The customer is very satisfied with the operation of their new commercial water heating system, which now accommodates large variations in hot water usage. We’ve helped them eliminate all the varying demand problems that previously plagued their production line.
