Typical Renewable Energy Industry Applications
This cooking vessel uses an isolated heating fluid circuit with a SUPERCHANGER® cook water heater. A second SUPERCHANGER, employed as an economizer/preheater within the circuit, uses low-grade surplus heat streams to reduce steam consumption in the cook water heater.
A Wide-Gap SUPERCHANGER Plate & Frame Exchanger used as an external heater maintains the correct heat in the stirred primary steep tank. The secondary steep tanks are fabricated using PLATECOIL® Prime Surface Exchangers as heating jackets.
Heated vessels in this continuous process can be fabricated using PLATECOIL heating banks as immersion heaters. These include both first- and second-stage hydrolysis vessels and the acid reconcentrator tower. PLATECOIL banks can also be configured as air heaters in systems such as the biomass dryer.
