Throughput and consistency are essential to industries using stainless steel tanks that keep compounds fresh and moving around the factory. Batch operators specializing in pharmaceutical, food, cosmetic, or chemical products know the benefit of coil jackets for stainless steel tanks, and we’re here to give you more information. Continue reading three ways coil jackets benefit your stainless steel tanks.
Coil Jackets Offer Better Heat and Cooling Distribution
Heat transfer is an essential factor of coil jackets. These jackets have a lower utility velocity that controls the fouling rate and mixing, so cooling flows through each section of contents thoroughly. However, they have varied limitations when used with low liquid levels. The fluid seldom comes in contact with lower-level coils. While coil jackets might not be best for tanks with low liquid levels, they distribute better heat and cooling in the tank’s core and around the coil jacket’s surface area.
Coils Increase Split Range Control
Coil jackets control split range and utility very well. A recirculation pump controls the utility, which transmits the flow out and back into the coil jacket. Utilizing a recirculation pump for coil jackets stops the split range control from abruptly halting in its system design.
Coil Jackets Keep Everything Flowing
Since the first coil jacket design in 1960, many stainless steel jacket fabricators have improved the design to make cooling and heating faster. The geometry allows water or steam to flow freely through a jacket inlet in one direction. The water would encircle the entire tank, ensuring the high-temperature containments were at a consistent temperature.
Coil jackets can benefit your stainless steel tanks by pairing your production with an expert metal fabrication company. Our professional metal fabricators at Custom Manufacturing & Polishing, Inc. excel at what they do. They ensure every customer has coil jackets with an outstanding heat transfer surface
so their chemicals stay fresh and at a consistent temperature. Let us help you get your tank’s throughput and consistency in check!
