ARI Armaturen is offering a compact steam-to-water heat exchange system that is ideal for applications such as the generation of domestic hot water and process heating tasks such as cleaning in place.

ARI-Encosys was developed to provide a compact, low-maintenance heat exchange system that will produce hot water instantaneously up to 2100kW, whatever the load conditions.

Nick Davies, UK sales director, said: ‘The stainless-steel construction of Encosys is combined with precisely matched steam and temperature controls that regulate at +/-1C under steady load conditions and provide swift response to large or sudden load changes.

‘Maintenance requirements are minimal and the system rarely requires a bi-annual insurance inspection due to the low volume of the heat exchanger compared to traditional shell and tube options.

‘By heating the secondary water and sub-cooling the condensate in the same plate heat exchanger, energy savings can be achieved and cost of ownership is further reduced because improved energy efficiency means lower fuel bills and lower CO2 emissions,’ he added.

Safety is also important and the system comes complete with a self-acting, TUV-approved, high-temperature cut-out valve to protect the unit from over-heating and users from scalding.

In addition, Encosys has been designed without the need for a separate water storage vessel, thus removing a potential breeding place for Legionella or other harmful bacteria.

Encosys is suitable for various applications including the generation of domestic hot water, low-temperature hot water (LTHW) and process heating duties such as hot water hose-down, heat recovery and cleaning in place.

With a width of less than 800mm, Encosys is suitable for small plant rooms and will easily fit through a single plant room door – the largest unit occupies less than 3m2 and the smallest less than 1.5m2.

All units are delivered fully assembled and tested ready for connection to services with minimal installation time.

Options are available to provide a complete system to suit any application.

ARI engineers can visit and assess requirements in order to recommend the best model for a particular application.
