Liquid - Liquid Heater Rapid Design


Usually imbibition water is hot condenstate from the process house, often contaminated with sugar and not suitable for boiler feed water. This hot condensate is too hot for imbibition duty, for two reasons;

This hot condensate must be cooled before it can be used as imbibition. The obvious product to cool it against is the mixed juice from the mills. Hence a liquid liquid heater

  1. The Sugar Engineers' Liquid-Liquid juice heater design is based on the well-established technology described in Rein, 2007, p. 216
  2. It is a modular design which makes for very simple field erection. Very little, if any, site welding is required.
  3. The condensate and juice will flow counter-current to each other for good heat transfer.
  4. Each module consists of a number of passes of standard stainless steel tubes in a standard nominal bore pipe, flanged at each end, with standard IS/BS/DIN/ISO/ANSI/GB flanges (according to the Client's preference).

The design will include:

  1. A detailed and fully dimensioned CAD drawing sent by email
  2. An Engineering specification document
  3. A Process datasheet showing the flows and temperatures and pressures

We are also able to offer Project Management Services for the design, engineering, fabrication and erection of your equipment to ensure it is delivered on time, in budget, to the correct quality.

A partially dimensioned drawing indicative of the design you will receive is available for download.
