The ProblemThe carbon level (heavy ends) was too high and carbon insoluble particles were stuck to the system internals and baked on hard. Since carbon is an insulator and the build reduces efficiency at the process end it resulted in higher running costs.
What Abergavenny Fine Foods wanted to achieveIncreased efficiency, a reduction in downtime and heat-up time.
The Global Heat Transfer solutionGlobal Heat Transfer took a hot, circulating and “closed” sample to determine the problem and then drained, flushed and cleaned the system using GlobalTherm C1 before replacing the oil.
ImpactSignificant reduction in heat-up time and improved efficiency.
