FOOD INDUSTRY: DAIRY PRODUCTS, SLAUGHTERHOUSES & EDIBLE OILS
The food and beverage industry depends on processing materials that will not contaminate the supply. Generally, reactors are used to raise the temperature of the fluids to complement the processes. In these cases, thanks to its high resistance to temperature and corrosion, the PE-X pipe allows a greater lifespan of the pipeline without any risk of rusted pipe pieces being mixed with the fluid to be transported.
Pexgol can be use in two specific processes:
WATER RECYCLE TREATMENT
In all processes of the food industry, manufacturers are required to have hot water in permanent circulation (between 70° and 85° C) with certain chlorine concentrate for the cleaning of tools and work equipment. Stainless steel is generally used for this type of application, but besides being very expensive, it can have serious corrosion problems due to the bacteria developing from the combination of chlorine and calcium at high temperature.
Pexgol offers an economical solution for this matter, being easy and efficient to install and to maintain.
Pexgol is an unbeatable solution when residues need to be transported. In the Food Industry it’s very common to encounter slurries and abrasive fluids that need to be transported for waste. Pexgol’s resistance to wear is 3 to 5 times superior to a conventional steel pipe.
One the most common processes is the transportation of oil slurry that usually has sedimentation problems running between 70° and 80°C. Thanks to its capabilities,
Pexgol is the ideal solution for this.
- Nearly Eliminates Production Down Time: In addition, the longer service lifespan and ease of maintenance nearly eliminates production down time due to piping issues.
- Longer pipe coils: Pexgol pipes can be coiled up to 1000 meters, saving connection costs, installation time and increasing safety during installation.
- Superior resistance to incrustation: Associated with low roughness coefficient of the internal surface of the pipe.
Hazen Williams Coefficient: Pexgol –>155 Steel –>100
- Resistant to sulfuric acid and other chemicals.
