Hot Water Set for Heating a cooking vessel. Includes a steam powered condensate pump.
TriStar Hot Water Sets are engineered to match each application. Water temperature, water flow rate, steam supply characteristics, and condensate recovery are all considered when designing each system.
Flow rates range from 25 GPM to 400 GPM. Shell and Tube Design or Brazed Plate Designs in both carbon steel and 316 stainless steel models are available.
A complete control system for applications where sudden or large load changes, or rapid temperature changes occur. 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 4-20 ma 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. Components include:
Simple, and economical, control loop utilizing hydraulic line for controlling relatively stable systems, where small valve stroke modulations will correct temperature drift. The temperature sensing bulb sends a hydraulic control signal to the special steam valve. Components include the Self-Operating Temperature Regulator and the Thermowell for the temperature sensor.
TriStar LTD Hot Water Set with Brazed Plate Heat Exchanger and Stainless Steel Piping
Depending on the steam supply pressure and quality, a steam control valve is selected to provide the correct amount of steam to meet the water heating demand.
Three different type of controls are available for the steam control valve:
For plants and applications where the hot water set is going to be operated by the plant's Distributed Control System (DCS). Also for applications where the temperature sensor (RTD) is located far from the hot water set. A pneumatically operated steam control valve is supplied. Two signal types are available:
