Twenty gas water heaters (GWH) must supply hot water at or above 150OF
@ 4 gpm to 20 flight-type, conveyor dishwashers to remove mold release from
injection molded plastic parts. Each washer demands an average of 2 GPM of
150O water, 24 hours/day, 5 days/week.
Water Heater: Rheem Vanguard Model
6E743A, 199,900 Btu/hr input, 183 GPH @ 110 degree F rise, 170,000 Btu/hr output,
85% conversion efficiency.
Major Problems Solved: (1) Fouling of conventional
heat exchangers; (2) Insufficient supply of water hot enough to meet
“We have used plate and
frame, and shell and tube heat exchangers in our processing operation.
These were high maintenance, plugging up constantly. We switched to GFX
units to resolve the plugging problems. They work! Our water heating system
no longer has any trouble keeping up with demand. The GFX units have never
plugged. The GFXs have been in for over 11/2 years; they are doing so well
I’ve Forgotten about them.” -- says Jason Blankenship,
Director of Engineering Meramec Group, Inc.; Missouri, USA; manufacturer of
molded Polyurethane products. (Quote from www.gfxtechnology.com/testimonials.html)
