Sioux Corp, celebrating its 75th anniversary in 2014, has been the top supplier of water heaters for concrete plants for over forty years. The M series water heaters have been the standard concrete plant water heater because of their reliability and affordability. This industrial water heater is designed for applications where large quantities of water are required in a short period of time. The M series is versatile and can recirculate hot water from any new or existing vented water tank, which is popular with concrete plant owner upgrading an existing hot water heater on a budget.
The new Hybrid is an on demand hot water heater for concrete plants that provides concrete plants owners with 99% efficiency during operation. This level of efficiency is not only environmentally friendly but also cost effective because it saves money in operation costs. Less fuel is consumed to heat the same amount of water as other concrete plant water heaters. This concrete plant hot water heater also fits into most concrete plants easily without the need for tall ceilings or large space footprints because of its compact horizontal design.
Water temperature is a critical component in mixing concrete. The temperature of concrete when it is mixed at a concrete plant directly impacts the speed in which the concrete will cure and the breaking strength of the concrete when it is completely cured. Considering the skyscrapers, bridges, and other infrastructure that is manufactured from concrete, the ability to control the characteristics of concrete has become very important. Temperature controlled water; both hot and cold are used regularly in concrete production to obtain tight design characteristics and to extend companies operating seasons into hot and cold weather.
