Silverado Hot Break

Big tomato needed to improve processing efficiency and quality by replacing multiple older rotary hotbreaks.  NMI Industrial provided a simplified 240 ton-per-hour solution by designing, fabricating and installing a revolutionary vertical heat exchanger system.  The forced circulated flooded design reduced temperature differential across exchanger tubes to dramatically improve product consistency and throughput while reducing operating costs.
