What Is The Process?

A volume of mains water is stored at (X) temperature and used when required such as water used in dough mixing. This water is drinking water quality which is called potable water.

Batch Cooling Application Considerations

  • What is the maximum ambient temperature?
  • What is the maximum inlet water temperature?
  • What is your required water temperature?
  • What is the maximum request single batch?
  • What is the time of batch dispense?
  • What is the quantity of batches per hour?
  • Is the water doser with pump command present?
  • Does the water in the leg to the batch area return on a return pipe?

Why Is Cooling Required For The Batch Cooling Process?

Mains water can be as high as 20°C. Some applications require main’s water as low as 1°C.

How To Calculate The Cooling

To calculate the duty we need to understand the maximum batch size, number of batches per hour, this will equate to how much water is used per hour for the number of cycles.

To calculate the duty; maximum mains water temperature – required temperature x flow per hour (/) 860 = cooling duty KW.

What Must The Cooling System Include?

Mains Water – Must included flow meter, pressure regulating valve and commissioning valve before heat exchanger
Chilled water circuit – Must include a 3 way valve arrangement to keep accurate control
System water – Must included a pump to offer continuous flow
Water circuit must be food grade (non ferrous/stainless steel) and cleanable
Propylene glycol must be used as food grade
