Culinary Steam Generator

PROBLEM

A client wanted to heat treat solid food product using culinary steam.

SOLUTION

The unit (shown during the trial stage at the Hipex food laboratory) boiled water with a re-boiler attached to a separation vessel to produce culinary steam.  It was constructed out of grade 2205 duplex stainless steel to reduce corrosion.  As with any other Hipex pressure vessel, the design was completed with full calculations and registered with the relevant Workcover authority.
