Instant Hot Water
Many food processes require varying loads of hot water at a low temperature rise during production, and hot water load can shift significantly higher for nighttime cleaning & sanitizing. The PSX Steam Injection Heater has a high turn down capacity for both steam and water flow allowing to handle load changes eliminating steam cavitation and temperature control issues. Hot water can also be used for can topping, freezer de-icing, bottle pastuerization, and many other hot water needs.
Cleaning & Sanitizing
ProSonix Direct Steam Injection heaters provide accurate, automatic temperature control, ensuring optimum effectiveness water heating, and caustic or chemical solutions. 100% heat transfer also saves energy over conventional heating systems.
Heating Jacketed Kettles
Direct Steam Injection heating of water offers many important advantages over steam for jacketed heating. Jacket water temperature is precisely controlled, allowing water to surround the jacket at an even temperature, eliminating hot spots and the potential for product burn-on. Hot water versus steam also permits a smooth transition form heating to cooling, eliminating hammer and vibration and the potential for shock and damage to the glass lining.
Blanching of Vegetables & Potatoes
In the Food industry, blanching of vegetables & potatoes is a common practice. Enzymes in vegetables are inactivated by the blanching process. Blanching is the exposure of the vegetables to boiling water or steam for a brief period of time. The vegetable must then be rapidly cooled in ice water to prevent it from cooking. there are a numbers of applications where containers need to be cleaned and pauperized prior to being filled in the packaging process. Companies such as Fruit & Vegetable Juice processors, Potato Processors, Vegetable & Fruit canning and so forth are all processes that require hot water supply for cleaning and washing of packages and containers prior to filling.
Check out how our inline steam injection for vegetable blanching systems operate and how they can be applied to your processing center.
Meat & Poultry Processing
Hot Water for Chicken Feet and Paw Scalders
The ProSonix heater is well suited for carcass washing stations where maintaining precise temperature control and resistance to buildup and fouling are important. The heater can be used for beef carcass washing, bird wash cabinets, evisceration, paw scalder water make-up, etc.
Be sure to check out our success story for a chicken paw scalder system installation for an example of the capabilities of our superb direct steam injection systems.
Starch Corn Wet Milling
The ProSonix C-Series Jet Cooker is well suited for liquefaction of starch for the production of corn syrup and sweeteners in wet milling processes, along with starch cooking for thickening of sauces and soups. Precise temperature control, thorough mixing of starch and steam, and resistance to buildup and fouling allow for more efficient liquefaction of the starch slurry.
Our direct steam injection for corn starch milling systems are the best in the market.
Back-flushing filters and rinsing centrifuges at uncontrolled temperatures, typical with heat exchangers, can waste water and energy and damage filter plates and frames. ProSonix precise temperature control provides the ideal solution for effective filter cleaning without danger of damage.
Tank Car Cleaning
ProSonix accurate temperature control and unlimited supply of hot water on demand makes tank car cleaning & sanitizing fast and easy. Ease of operation and maintenance and proven energy savings make ProSonix the perfect choice.
Anaerobic Digestion & Wastewater Processing
The ProSonix Inline direct steam injection heater is well suited for anaerobic digestion of organic food waste such as cheese whey, cattle and poultry waste, and post processing food waste. Digestion of Biosolids can reduce landfill costs and produce methane as a useful fuel source.
On Demand Hot Water
ProSonix will heat water instantly and on demand to any desired temperature before it enters a batch process, reducing the cycle time and increasing productivity.
ProSonix Direct Steam Injection heater is the answer for on demand hot water for applications such as pasteurization in beverage bottling and others packaging applications. Its unique design provides hot water at a precisely controlled temperature over a wide operating range. ProSonix can accommodate wide variations in water flows and frequent start-stop applications.
