Proper condensing of the cooking vapors created in the process is critical to efficient processing. IF the cooking vapors are not removed quickly and efficiently process efficiency both in terms of throughput and in terms of energy consumption will suffer.
Alloy offers Contact Condensing, Air Condensing and Heat Recovery systems. Heat recovery systems provide all the hot water needed for slaughter and rendering for FREE.
Alloy has the industry experience to design, size, manufacture and install a system to assure operational efficiency as well as meet your other process needs. Why not call or email us to see how Alloy Condensing can improve your bottom line.
While a condensing system is not an odor control system, it does concentrate the odors making them easier to treat.
Every pound of vapor produced contains approximately 1,000 btu's of energy. Heat recovery systems recapture that energy by transferring the energy into a new medium, typically water. By passing the vapor through the tubes in a Shell and Tube heat exchanger and running water through the shell the BTU's contained in the vapor are transferred to the water providing hot water for "FREE" as no additional energy is not required to heat the water.
These systems use potable water producing potable hot water for a multitude of uses:
Because of the billions of BTU's recaptured daily, these systems typically have a payback between 12 and 18 months and should be utilized whenever there is a need for hot water.
Alloy has been supplying these systems for over fifty years and are a knowledgeable partner to design, build, install and service these systems. Are Energy costs an issue at your facility? Let's talk about Heat Recovery.
Cyclones are used in the vapor system to protect the condenser from materials that might be in the vapor stream. Alloy cyclones are designed to provide the pressure drop required for them to operate efficiently resulting in a high removal rate of fat and solids from the vapor stream.
Heat Exchangers are often referred to as condensers. Alloy provides Contact, Air, and Shell and Tube Heat Exchangers. Regardless of the type of exchanger, they are Stainless Steel on all contact surfaces and sized to provide efficient condensing of vapors to water.
The ducting used on your condensing system needs to be properly engineered to provide the correct velocity of the vapors. If the velocity is too high the result is carryover of materials in the vapor steam, if it’s too low, materials drop out in the ducting reducing the area of the duct and creating operational issues. Having supplied vapor systems and ducting since the mid 1960's, Alloy has the technical and practical experience to design the system for peak efficiency. Can we help you with your vapor system?
Non-condensible fans are often referred to as Vacuum Fans, which is a mis-nomer these fans do not create vacuum, instead they remove the non-condensible gases taht either enter the system due to leaks or are generated by the processing system. Regardless of the source of these gases if they are not removed they can cause the system to vapor lock resulting in either the system becoming less efficient or condensing comes to complete stop.
Alloy has the experience to properly size the fans to provide keep your process working efficiently.
How large of fan shoud you have? Why not get with our Applications group and let's make sure your system is operating correctly?
Alloy has the experience to offer you controls for your condensing system as we have done dozens of times over the years. The controls can be as simple as monitoring the system and providing audible and visual feedback when the system falls outside of desired parameters to systems that permit remote monitoring and adjustments of the operational parameters remotely.
