Case Study: Frame Mounted Thermal Process Assembly
Frame Mounted Concept
Fabricate components on a supporting frame including tanks, control panel, disconnect switches, valves, pump(s), instruments, and piping
Frame Mounted Advantage
Case Study Background
A major beverage manufacturer needed to heat 40 gallons per minute of single strength juice from 70 to 145°F, then cool the juice to 105°F for packaging.
The customer contracted Placer Process Systems to provide a solution that would process their juice, integrate with their existing process, meet all sanitary requirements, and minimize production downtime.
Placer Process Systems successfully designed, fabricated, and installed a frame mounted system, with direct heat regen through a plate and frame heat exchanger, that met all the customer’s requirements.
Assembly Frame Sub-Systems
The frame assembly had 5 key components:
- Stainless steel support frame
- Plate & frame heat exchanger
- Sanitary booster pump
- Pressure and temperature sensors
- Sanitary control valves
All assembly piping is sanitary polished ID/OD tubing
Plate & Frame Heat Exchanger
Placer Process Systems sized and integrated a plate & frame heat exchanger to accomplish customer’s process needs:
Sanitary Booster Pump
Placer Process Systems integrated a sanitary booster pump designed to supply the correct flow and pressure to the customer’s existing system:
Placer Process Systems supplied and integrated all sensors needed for required operation:
Pressure And Temperature Sensors
Placer Process Systems used single seat sanitary valves with automated pneumatic actuators
Our customer received a high quality system that integrated fully with their existing process.
Our assembly is currently in use in their facility and is providing reliable and economical service.
