Design and manufacturing of 3 reverse osmosis water heating systems
At SACOME, we are specialists in the custom design for our client’s needs and requirements. In this sense, it is increasingly common for our clients to worry about energy savings and introduce heat exchangers in their plants for heat recovery. A very good example of this is the recent supply of 3 reverse osmosis water heating systems for a plant in the United States. This client is one of the most prestigious companies worldwide in the food sector. Each of these systems consists of 2 sections: a first section in which heat is recovered from a hot process water and a second section of final steam heating. The main objective is to obtain a significant energy saving by greatly reducing the amount of steam required in the event that complete steam heating will be carried out without heat recovery.
Moreover, these equipment have the main design parameters of our Sanitary Line: sanitary inner tubes (and in this case without welding), eccentric reductions, external polished finish, sanitary flanged connections, corrugated inner tubes, good distribution of the inner tubes for maximum drainage, etc. In addition, in this case we use small diameter tubes (12 x 1 mm) to achieve the most compact suitable solution. In the same way, we consider flanged connections to allow our client to disassemble the interconnection elbows and perform easy maintenance and inspection of the tubular heat exchangers.
In short, at SACOME we are at your disposal to carry out energy saving studies by installing heat recuperators. Do not hesitate to contact us and indicate the processes in which you want to have an energy saving and we will inform you the time in which the investment of the tubular heat exchangers will be amortized.
Heat exchangers technical documentation
Heat Exchangers for loops of Purified Water (PW) and Water for Injection (WFI) in the pharmaceutical and biotechnology industries.
The importance of rheology in the design of any processing plant is crucial since the sizing of many of the elements composing it is very dependent on this “resistance”, also taking special relevance with food products: heat exchangers, pipes, valves, pumps, mixers, etc.
To design a heat exchanger it is necessary to have certain data, such as the process flow rate, the temperature and the physical properties of products.
