Retort System Helps Save Energy
Save water and energy with Allpax's system for retort rooms. The system reduces the cost of water disposal and usage by 50 percent while making free hot water available for plant operations. The process gives manufacturers the ability to use the hot water from a standard water spray retort cycle during the first stages of cooling to capture hot water, and then in the second stages of cooling to contain the warm water and use it in the next cycle instead of disposing of it. In steam retort operations, a waste-heat recovery system captures steam in a vented tank where it condenses into hot water. This water can be used to supplement hot water in lavatories and cleaning stations or it can be run through heat exchangers for heating food or other processes at the plant.
