Refurbishment of a water tube boiler in a food plant
Reinva has carried out the refurbishment of a biomass water tube boiler in a food production plant, by changing the entire water tube section of the boiler, fueled by biomass, by the technicians of the company specialized in providing a complete service to energy processes and steam technology.
After the refurbishment of the biomass water tube boiler, the pressure equipment is fully operational in the food production factory. The aforementioned plant dedicates its activity to the manufacture of must concentrate (grape juice), subsequently used in a wide variety of products in the food, health or cosmetics sector. With this process of making juices for food, the must is available directly or mixed with other fruits. The transformation process consists of subjecting the juice to evaporation under vacuum, after which the concentrate is obtained.
The biomass steam boiler used in this food plant is of the water tube type and consumes grape pomace as fuel, although this type of fuel boiler can operate with different types of fuel such as olive pits and olive pomace and alperujo, coffee remains, industrial wood waste, dried fruit shells, sawdust, straw or others.
Characteristics of water tube boilers
Water-tube boilers are made up of a bundle of tubes through which water circulates and which is crossed externally by the flow of hot gases. In general, water-tube boilers are the most suitable for use at higher pressures and temperatures, and also for steam production from 50 T/h, since, although they are more sensitive to load and pressure fluctuations, they manage to vaporize water in a very short time.
