Application Solutions include:
Hot 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 from direct steam and the potential for product burn on. Hot water versus steam also permits a smooth transition from heating to cooling, eliminating hammer and vibration and the potential for shock and damage to glass lined reactors.
Pick Heaters provide accurate, automatic temperature control ensuring optimum effectiveness of the caustic or chemical solutions. 100% heat transfer also saves energy over indirect or sparging systems. Let Pick design a fully automated CIP system to meet your cleaning needs.
Back-flushing filters and rinsing centrifuges at uncontrolled temperatures, typical with indirect heat exchangers can waste water, energy and damage filter plates and frames. Pick's precise temperature control provides the ideal solution for effective filter cleaning without danger of damage.
Tank Car Washing
Pick’s accurate temperature control and unlimited supply of hot water on demand makes tank car washing fast and easy. Ease of operation and maintenance along with proven energy savings make Pick the perfect choice. Contact Pick for a fully automated Tank Car Washing System.
Tank Car and Storage Tank Heating
Heating tank cars with live steam can cause overheating which may result in damage to temperature-sensitive products. Hot water from a Pick System can be maintained at a precise, safe temperature. With a Pick System, water is re-circulated back through the heater requiring minimum energy to replace the BTUs used to heat the product.
Adding Process Water
Pick heats water instantly and demand to any desired temperature before it enters a batch process, reducing the cycle time and increasing productivity.
Gas to Liquid Dispersion
The Pick System effectively disperses a gas or vapor into a liquid; for example, ammonia gas into a liquid. It is also ideal for mixing two condensate streams. Pick provides smooth and even dispersion and operates with a minimum of noise and maintenance. See how Pick can solve your Condensate Mixing requirements.
General Plant Clean Up
The Pick Variable Flow Heater is the answer for general plant sanitation. Its unique design provides instant hot water at a precisely controlled temperature over a wide operating range. Only Pick can accommodate wide variations in water flows and frequent start-stop applications such as hose stations and still deliver accurately controlled hot water on demand. It is ideal for a central heating system for all your plant sanitation and clean up needs.
With a Pick System the temperature in processing the filling lines can be precisely maintained at any desired setting. This assures a smooth flow of product without fear of damage from overheating.
Vacuum Dryer/ Blender
Pick's automatic, temperature-controlled system is ideal for providing hot water for jacketed dryers. Hot water versus steam provides even temperature control throughout the jacket, eliminating hot spots and overheating. Heat up is rapid and temperature can be controlled to within +1°C.
