Heat Exchanger and Boiler Maintenance: Chemical Descaling

Have you ever ironed a pair of dark pants only to have small white flakes fall out of the iron’s steam holes and make white streaks across your clothes? This is especially a problem in older irons that have never been cleaned. Your iron is in many ways like a commercial steam boiler. After a long time making steam, a boiler can clog up with white flakes and get trapped in the boiler system. This white buildup in both the steam iron and the boiler is a layer of calcium and other minerals called scale, or sometimes limescale. As the water evaporates, the minerals in the water don’t turn into steam when the machine is in use; they are left behind to form scale inside the equipment.

As annoying as those little white flakes are for your dark pants, imagine what those deposits do to the heating elements of large industrial equipment like boilers and heat exchangers. On some equipment, the scale buildup can be inches thick. An inch, or even a much thinner layer of scale is more than an annoyance, it’s a serious maintenance problem that diminishes system efficiency, reduces heat transfer, and increases operating costs. Just like maintaining and cleaning your steam iron, facility managers have to do the same for their heat exchangers and boilers.

Cleaning and Sanitation in Craft Beer Brewing

[B]rewing is 90 percent cleaning and 10 percent paperwork” according to experts at Craft Brewing Business. This statement is no surprise to the thousands of craft brewers across the country who depend on clean brewing systems to produce high quality beers. If their beer tastes bad, they go out of business. But a clean brewing system means more than just good tasting beer. Keeping contaminated beer away from the consumer is also a public health issue.

The Federal Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) signed into law in 2011, now gives the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) jurisdiction in breweries. In the interest of protecting the public, the FDA will come and inspect your brewery for cleanliness and adherence to federal food production regulations.

How Sustainability Trends Will Impact Your Food Processing Business

Sustainable Food Processing Methods

As anyone in the food processing business knows, FSMA law has been driving many of the changes in the industry the past few years. However, as always, consumer-driven trends are also impacting the industry. Recently, Forbes highlighted five trends that are defining the food industry. In addition to wanting more healthy and local food, many consumers are focused on eliminating waste in the food ecosystem.
