Hot Water Set
Hot water sets (HWS) are used across multiple industries to provide controlled water temperature to various process requirements like ingredient hot water, tank jacket heating and cleaning / sanitization. We have experience designing HWS that use various types of heating equipment, such as direct steam injection, brazed plate heat exchangers and shell-and-tube heat exchangers.
Hot Water Generators, Steam Water Heaters
Our Hot Water Sets are engineered to match each application. Water flow rate, heating range and steam supply characteristics are all considered when designing each system.
● Brazed Plate Heat Exchanger.
● Hot Water Recirculation Pump.
● Pressure Reducing Valve.
● Automatic Steam Control Valve.
● Steam Trap.
● Expansion Tank.
● Manual Shutoff Valve.
● Pressure Gauges.
● Stainless Steel Base and Rack with Adjustable Feet.
● Steam Safety Relief Valve.
● Y-Strainer on Steam Line.
The system senses the current temperature of the process using an RTD. It then compares the current temperature to the set point using an electronic controller. The controller sends a corrective electric signal to the positioner. The signal then controls pneumatic air supply to the steam control valve which increases or decreases the steam flow into the system. The change in steam flow raises or lowers the water (service fluid) temperature.
Hot water sets (HWS) are designed to indirectly heat water using steam energy by means of a steam-to-water heat exchanger, commonly used in food & beverage, pharmaceutical and chemical industries. Hot water is often preferred over steam because it provides a closer and more controllable temperature approach to the final desired product temperature. This is often critical when processing heat sensitive products that risk burn on or coagulation.

High-temperature short-time (HTST) pasteurization, or flash pasteurization, is commonly utilized in food and beverage industries. Products are heated and held at a specific temperature and time, followed by quick cooling to ensure complete destruction of contained pathogenic microorganisms. Compared to batch pasteurization, HTST system offers advantages of lower utility costs and higher continuous throughput. Use of regenerative heating and cooling in heat exchangers can further increase operational efficiency.
Clean-in-place (CIP) is a procedure by which process lines, tanks and equipment are sanitized without any disassembly. We will specify, design and fabricate CIP systems tailored to your needs, whether it be manual or fully automated. Single tank or multi-tank CIP Systems are available including temperature control and detergent injection capabilities, and can be built for efficient reuse of water, chemicals and energy.
