Multinational food producer reaps benefits of HRS corrugated heat exchanger
A food ingredients plant in the northern Malaysian province of Seberang Perai, in the state of Penang, owned by a major multinational food producer, had a history of using smooth-tube heat exchangers for a range of cooling, heating and condensation. However, despite reservations about switching to corrugated tube exchangers, the client wanted to increase energy efficiency, reduce maintenance and cleaning requirements, and lower operational costs.
- Reduced stem use: Current steam use is around 310 kg/hr – significantly less than was previously used for the process.
- Continued production of high quality enzymes and bioproducts for food manufactures
- Reduced cleaning and maintenance
Testimonies“From the initial discussion which began two years ago, it is great to see that a year of successful operation has convinced our client of the benefits of HRS’s corrugated tube technology. They are seeing real benefits in terms of running costs and energy use and are now looking at replacing additional smooth-tube units to increase these benefits across their business.” Remus Lim, HRS General Manager, Malaysia “The unit is very robust and I’m pleased with its performance. It has certainly reduced our steam consumption.” Client spokesperson
