Caloris uses eddy current testing (ECT) results to pinpoint problem areas in the tubes of existing evaporators. Targeted fixes can then be applied, potentially saving owners expensive replacement costs. This case study will examine how two different customers used ECTs to determine how to invest in evaporation equipment.
A cheese company in Ohio foresaw the need to upgrade its whey processing equipment in order to accommodate an increase in whey volumes that would result from a plant expansion. The cheese company approached Caloris for assistance with this whey plant upgrade.
A new milk powder production facility was built in a water stressed region with the goal to minimize their environmental footprint as well as conserve water resources. The customer approached Caloris to design and install necessary treatment equipment to recover cow water (vapor condensate) discharging from the evaporation process systems and process it to a quality suitable as Category I, acceptable for use in potable water applications.
Recently, Honda Precision Parts of Georgia, LLC (HPPG), a manufacturer of transmissions in the southeastern United States, was looking for a solution to significantly reduce disposal costs for their facility’s wastewater. One option considered was a wastewater evaporator.
A Caloris customer had an issue with discharging a high volume of industrial wastewater into their wastewater lagoon. The discharge stream was “rinse water,” which is used for clean-in-place (CIP) flushes and rinses of dairy processing equipment before and after various chemical washes.
