Hot Water System

History
Hot Water Systems are engineered to provide accurate, reliable and cost effective temperature control for process load.
The Hot Water System is available for use with plant steam or electricity as the heat source. Both steam and electric units come in
single and dual zone configurations.
Flowtech also designs and manufactures specialized equipment for non-standard applications. Our engineers have extensive experience in process chilling and heating applications for such industries as Chemicals, Petroleum, Plastics, Rubber, Paper, Power, Steel, Food And Pharmaceuticals.

Why Hot Water System needed?
• The temperature in the jacket can be controlled much more accurately with hot water than with steam. This higher degree of control protects against damage to or loss of product through overheating
• Hot water distributes heat more evenly than steam. This eliminates hot spots which often cause product to bake onto the walls of the vessel, and at worst, ruin the entire batch.
• Hot water ensures a better quality end product. This is particularly important in processes requiring very precise product temperature control.
• In critical processes utilizing glass-lined reactors, steam shocks can damage the glass lining. Hot water allows smooth transitions from heating to cooling with no thermal shock.


Type Of Hot Water System
1. Direct steam heating.
2. Indirect steam heating (Using PHE or Shell and Tube condenser).
3. Electrical Heating.

Solution
Single fluid heating cooling systems (SFHC) / Temperature Control Unit (TCU) are coming-up as an ideal solution to overcome most of the limitations with traditional multiutility based heat transfer and control system. where high accuracy and wide temperature ranges are critical for the development of new compounds and API’s.

How it Works?
Single fluid heating cooling system is normally connected to a single reactor, where the Temperature of the system is varied as per the process requirement, Thus maintaining the constant temperature difference between the process and fluid temperature.
This gives precise control over heating and cooling cycle. Thus, not only the temperature is controlled as a critical process parameter but also the heating-and-cooling time is controlled as a critical parameter. This results in batch-to-batch consistency and higher yield.
