Usage of hot water boiler systems in practice

Industrial hot water boiler systems for generating thermal heat are very similar to the household heating boilers in our cellars. The main difference is that industrial boilers are dimension-ed significantly larger, so their heating capacity is not only sufficient for a family home but also for hotels, hospitals, skyscrapers, industrial buildings or entire districts. When using process heat generated by steam boiler systems the individual applications are far more versatile. They are used in many industry sectors. But is all this just hot air or what exactly is the steam used for?
Let us choose a few industrial sectors and have a closer look at them.

Boiler for Food industry
Food must often be heated or boiled during processing. Thus this industrial sector obviously needs plenty of thermal energy. However, some steam applications are still stunning; a good example is potato processing.
Cold potatoes are filled in a big pressure vessel and hot steam is abruptly injected. The abrupt heat supply causes the potato peels to fall off so they do not have to be peeled by hand any more. Now, isn’t it tempting to fetch the old steam cleaner from the cellar and use it as a cooking aid?

Boiler for Breweries
Most people know that a good and tasty beer consists of hops, malt and water. However, before enjoying the beer there is a complex production process. Malt has to be ground coarsely and mixed with water. The brewer calls this mashing. The mash must be heated to various temperatures in two to four hours. Now guess which heat carrier is normally used for this? That’s it, the steam we previously generated with the steam boiler.

Subsequently, hops are added and the mixture has to cool down. Then yeast is added and triggers the fermentation so that the beer gets the desired effect. Depending on the type the beer still has to mature for up to three months until it can be filled in bottles or barrels. Now we get to the...
