The Story Of The Old Heat Exchanger And Its Hot Replacement

Once upon a very recent time, a northeastern college had to force a trusted and loyal heat exchanger into retirement. It was indeed a difficult decision. Performance was suffering, and keeping it around was costing the college money. It could no longer meet the requirements of the vibrant, young students who demanded hot water for showers, 24/7. The old and faithful heat exchanger was literally losing its steam.

 

With school starting in less than 5 weeks, the college facilities team knew who to call—Maiocco & Associates, the local experts in heat transfer solutions.

 

The Hot Replacement

In less than a month, Maiocco assessed, inspected, specified, and delivered one very HOT replacement — the Hot-Pak™  instantaneous water heater equipped with a stainless steel heat exchanger and engineered for years of trouble free operation. The HOT-PAK exchanger came with unit-mounted controls and was pre-piped to connect easily to the existing piping. Installation was a dream, and the transition was seamless. Maiocco beat the deadline and delivered this hot, new solution under budget.

 

The torch has been officially passed. The HOT-PAK replacement has been trouble free for over year and the college expects predictable, high performance for 25-30 years to come.

 

The Story Of The Old Heat Exchanger And Its Hot Replacement

A 10,000 Pound Solution

A 10,000 Pound Solution

When the facility management team at a Northeastern meat and food production facility needed to replace a 20-year-old heat exchanger that was responsible for heating all of the water in the entire plant, they had two choices:

 

1.  Call the original equipment manufacturer;

2.  Call a heat transfer solution specialist.

 

They did both.

 

The original equipment manufacturer was no longer able to provide a replacement solution — a situation that is happening more and more with equipment manufacturers. The call to Maiocco & Associates — their long-term supplier of heat transfer solutions of every kind — resulted in an immediate onsite visit for an assessment and a cost-effective solution.

 

The Solution

  • A 20-foot long, 10,000 pound custom heat exchanger
  • Equipment that was engineered and built so that it could be dropped in place requiring no modifications to
    existing piping
  • Assurance that this turnkey project would result in increased capacity and efficiency Delivery and installation performed on time to preclude serious fouling issues within the tubes of the current system
  • Professional order management, tracking, and onsite installation coordination

 

Got it. Did it. Done
