A tomato sauce producer was using a three-way steam-valve jet cooker and getting poor results. The unit had difficulty maintaining target temperatures and vibrated severely, causing concerns over the piping’s integrity.
The operating conditions were as follows:
- Flow rates of 25 to 75 gal/min (9.4 kl/m).
- The inlet temperature was an ambient low of 45°F (7°C).
- Outlet temperature was 195°F (91°C).
- Steam pressure was 120 to 130 psig (8.2 to 8.9 bar).
