Hose Station Service


A bacon and sausage production facility was looking to replace their leaking shell-and-tube heat exchanger that had a problem with calcium build-up. They needed a reliable system that could provide them with the hot water needed to operate hose stations for plant clean-up and during production.


Process Conditions:

Water Flow Rate: 7 - 25 GPM
Discharge Temperature: 160ºF
Steam Flow Required: 298 - 1088 lb/hr



Pick Model 6X10 Cast Iron Variable Flow Heater takes up less space than the previous heat exchanger. The Pick Heater requires very little maintenance and upkeep. In fact, the hard water has not negatively affected the Pick Heater. 


Satisfied customer, Bert Walton, Maintenance Supervisor of Pederson’s Natural Farms in Hamilton, TX reports:

“We use our Pick Heater to supply an uninterrupted flow of consistently heated water to our production and sanitation processes. 

We count on our Pick Heater every day and it has never failed us in the 5+ years since it’s installation.

I am very pleased with our Pick Heater and would highly recommend it to anyone that is interested.”
