HIGH EFFICIENCY WATER HEATERS FOR RURAL FOOD INDUSTRIES.
HIGH EFFICIENCY WATER HEATER FOR RURAL INDUSTRIES
Rural food industries in India require hot water for food processing like boiling, blanching, steeping etc. Fuel costs are a major cost addition in the process and are expensive and sometimes difficult for procuring. A water heater was designed ensuring a very large surface area of contact with flue gases and fire ensuring quick and efficient heating of water. The geometry of the contact area is such that the water convection currents ensure rapid contact with the heating surface. Hot water is directly used in several processes and additional heating is done as required. The whole system is designed in stainless steel and withstands corrosion to ensure long life.
Hot water can also be used in several ;processes like textile dying, silk reeling, washing utensils, etc.
TARGET AREA / POPULATION
Small food proccessing industry, hotels and units requiring hot water
INNOVATION and DESIGN FACTOR
The innovation factor in the system are ;
Design of a efficient vessel geometry for maximum surface area of flue gas and flame.
Design of inlet and outlet pipes for ensuring non - mixing of cold and hot water
Designing a corrosion proof long life product.
To design and develop a higher capacity water heaters using bio mass and dry waste.
