HevaSteam Packaged Steam/Water Plate Heat Exchangers

 

The Arbe range of HevaSteam packaged steam/water heat exchangers offer a compact and economical solution for heat transfer requirements. The HevaSteam unit is a self-contained unit, with all the required equipment and controls to ensure safe & efficient operation. The unit is supplied with a steam trapping system as standard for condensate control, but can also be supplied be steam pumps, both mechanically and electrically operated.

 

  • Dedicated ranges for domestic hot water production & heating water production (LTHW, MTHW & HTHW)

  • Standard units with primary duties from 35 kW to 11,000 kW, with special models available up to 30,000 kW

  • Standard units with PID controllers, with BACnet control options and PLC controls & touch-screen technology also available

  • Control options with tight temperature tolerance for critical process operations

  • Available with either APS plate heat exchangers or CT shell & tube heat exchangers

  • Small unit size with high heat transfer capacity

  • High resistance to pressure and temperature fluctuations

  • Cost efficiency

  • Stainless steel secondary connections

  • Easy installation

 

Applications:

  • Domestic hot water

  • Heating systems (LTHW, MTHW & HTHW)

  • Process wash-down systems

 

Our range of HevaSteam packaged plate heat exchangers are designed and manufactured to the latest standards and are fully compliant with the Pressure Equipment Directive.

HevaSteam Packages for Domestic Hot Water

The HevaSteam package design for domestic hot water systems, potable and process, consist of a standard range of equipment. Our systems offer full and comprehensive safety devices to cover most specificational requirements, suitable for NHS, chemical and process applications, in addition to traditional HVAC systems.

The Heat Exchanger:

The package is fitted with our APK range of heat exchangers as standard, with stainless steel AISI 316L plates and EPDM-STEAM gaskets as standard, with operating temperatures of up to 180 DegC.

Primary Steam Controls:

Our standard units are fitted block and bleed isolation valves with a proving valve. The package is fitted with fast acting control valves with electromagnetic actuators, operating with extremely high accuracy and speed, whilst giving close temperature control of the hot water. Each and every package is also fitted with a separate high limit valve with an electro-hydraulic actuator, with a spring return function to shut off the system on high temperature limit and power failure, ensuring complete safety of the secondary system.

Condensate Control:

The standard design of the HevaSteam unit consists of a condensate trap assembly, using high quality steam traps, each sized to suit the particular application. We recommend a maximum condensate back pressure of 5 metres / 0.5 BarG. Should the condensate back pressure be higher than this, or if the condensate destination be a distance away from the steam package, we would recommend the use of a condensate pump, either a steam pump integrated within the steam package, or an external condensate recovery unit. A condensate recovery unit can either be electrically powered (as our ACR units, please click here for further information) or a mechanically powered steam pump package.

Secondary Equipment:

There are a few options available for the secondary system side to ensure the best operation of the package. The equipment we may recommend being fitted can include secondary pumps, buffer vessels and secondary overheat protection kits

Primary Steam Controls:

Our standard units are fitted block and bleed isolation valves with a proving valve. The package is fitted with fast acting control valves with various options for actuators depending on output and application, whilst giving close temperature control of the hot water. Each and every package is also fitted with a separate high limit valve with an electro-hydraulic actuator, with a spring return function to shut off the system on high temperature limit and power failure, ensuring complete safety of the secondary system. Pneumatic valves and controls are also available

The standard design of the HevaSteam unit consists of a condensate trap assembly, using high quality steam traps, each sized to suit the particular application. We recommend a maximum condensate back pressure of 5 metres / 0.5 BarG. Should the condensate back pressure be higher than this, or if the condensate destination be a distance away from the steam package, we would recommend the use of a condensate pump, either a steam pump integrated within the steam package, or an external condensate recovery unit.

Secondary Equipment:

There are a few options available for the secondary system side to ensure the best operation of the package. The equipment we may recommend being fitted can include secondary system circulating or shunt pumps, low loss headers, pressurisation equipment and secondary overheat protection kits

HevaSteam Packages for Process & Wash-Down Systems

The HevaSteam package design for process and wash-down devices to cover most specificational requirements, suitable for factories and other process driven applications. HVAC systems can also be integrated into the package where required using safe and compatible control systems.

The Heat Exchanger:

The package is fitted with our APK range of heat exchangers as standard, with stainless steel AISI 316L plates and EPDM-STEAM gaskets as standard, with operating temperatures of up to 180 DegC. We can also fit tubular heat exchangers along with plate & shell type exchangers.

Primary Steam Controls:

Our standard units are fitted block and bleed isolation valves with a proving valve. The package is fitted with fast acting control valves with various options for actuators depending on output and application, whilst giving close temperature control of the hot water. Each and every package is also fitted with a separate high limit valve with an electro-hydraulic actuator, with a spring return function to shut off the system on high temperature limit and power failure, ensuring complete safety of the secondary system.

A condensate recovery unit can either be electrically powered (as our ACR units, please click here for further information) or a mechanically powered steam pump package.

Secondary Equipment:

There are a few options available for the secondary system side to ensure the best operation of the package. The equipment we may recommend being fitted can include secondary shunt pumps, secondary system pumps and buffer vessels. Process domestic hot water systems can generally be designed to operate at higher temperatures than HevaSteam DHW packages so extra safety measures are taken within the design to ensure safe operation of the unit. We can also install extra take-off lines from the package for variable temperature systems, such as the Morning Foods project where we took a potable hot water line for the public health system, which was supplied with a temperature controlled outlet to the system.

Arbe recently completed installation of a complete heat recovery system for a food factory. The remit was to design a hot water system that would recover heat from cold room refrigeration units which would be used to preheat water in a calorifier and thus reduce power usage on the refrigeration unit as the cooling fans would not need to be used
