Large pharmaceutical facility wanted to convert their batch processing method for bio-waste treatment to a continuous flow system. Temperature of 130ºC had to be reached and held for 5 minutes to effectively “kill” and neutralize living cells. The waste stream is then cooled prior to discharge to sewer. A 304L stainless steel shell and tube heat exchanger was also considered. Waste treatment time would be significantly reduced from the normal 30-45 minute batch.
Temperature Rise: 70ºC
Discharge Temperature: 140ºC (285ºF)
Steam Supply Pressure: 100 PSIG
Liquid Supply Pressure: 53 PSIG
Steam Flow: 830-2,054 lbs/hr
