Hot Water Sets – Safer Thermal Energy Systems

Regulate & maintain temperature with KOSS Hot Water Sets – wall-mounted and skidded designs are fully customizable. Koss Industrial, Inc. designs and manufactures a Hot Water Set to best complement your application and unique specifications.  We also provide high quality Process Piping Services, along with many others!

Why Hot Water?

Hot water offers advantages such as precise temperature control with even heat distribution, eliminating hot spots and providing quality control and ease of cleaning. Not only is the system easier to regulate, but a Hot Water Set is also easier to operate than a steam system.

Functioning at lower pressure, a KOSS Hot Water Set doesn’t require special jacketing and provides a safer environment (by not needing high-pressure steam runs throughout the plant).  Regulating & maintaining temperature is a breeze with Hot Water Sets – KOSS’ hot water systems are fabricated to USDA & WDA Sanitary Standards and are constructed from durable stainless steel.  We can design/fabricate hot water sets to meet your specific needs and requirements.

Hot Water Offers:

  • Precise Temperature Control
  • Even Heat Distribution
    -eliminates hot spots
    -quality control/ease of cleaning
  • Lower Pressure
    -doesn’t require special jacketing
  • A Safer Environment
    -as opposed to having high pressure steam runs throughout the plant

When would I NOT use Hot Water Sets?  Heat transfer in a steam system is higher than a hot water system, so you wouldn’t consider using hot water if your process includes UHT treatment.  Find out more about KOSS Culinary Steam and Heating & Cooling solutions online, or call 1.800.844.6261.

Koss Industrial’s hot water sets are designed & fabricated to USDA & WDA Sanitary Standards and are constructed from durable stainless. Heat Exchanger has 3A symbol. We design & fabricate hot water sets to meet the customer’s unique needs.

Available Options include: various material finishes, controls for hot water set, skid/wall mounting, different styles of expansion tanks, insulation, heat exchangers (ASME or U-Tube; 8, 10, 12 in. U-Tube Heat Exchangers operating above 15 psig mawp will be ASME stamped)

Plate Heat Exchanger

Alfa Laval Baseline Plate Heat ExchangerA plate heat exchanger is a specific type of heat exchanger that uses metal plates in order to transfer heat between two fluids.  Plate heat exchangers are more beneficial than the regular U-tube or straight tube heat exchangers because the fluids are exposed to a larger surface area due to the fluids capability to spread out over the plates.  Now, the transfer of heat can take place while simultaneously increasing the speed of the temperature change.

Hot Water Sets

Hot Water SetKoss Industrial, Inc. builds their own hot water sets to custom specifications to meet any applications requirements.  Koss Industrial, Inc. follows all USDA and WDA requirements for their valves.  Koss Industrial, Inc.  can also add a variety of options, such as stainless steel motors, various control systems, etc.,  to these units so the hot water sets are  sure to meet the customer’s needs.

Hot water sets are key components in the HTST Pasteurization Units.  Besides this role, they can be used to heat  multiple number process tanks that manufacture products to precise specifications (i.e. hot water heated cheese vats).
