Concrete Plant Water Heating Systems, Proven and Tested Positive

A firm specializing in the niche of helping concrete plant operators identify, size and select water heaters for concrete plants as well as other equipment used at concrete plants offers customer tips as they prepare for the upcoming winter rush.
WAUKESHA, Wis. - Sept. 19, 2013 - PRLog -- Concrete plant owners are beginning to think about fall and winter logistics and evaluating their options for hot water sources. Many concrete plants require a proven, tested and reliable hot water source to produce concrete within a project specification, especially concrete plants located in the North and Midwest. Equipment for heating water is available in all sizes as well as quality types and can be hard to distinguish between. FESCO Direct LLC is a leading supplier of water heating equipment in addition to concrete plants and other equipment used for manufacturing concrete. FESCO Direct has been helping concrete batch plant operators evaluate their operation, project and needs and select the best water heater to meet their short and long term goals. More information on the specific concrete plant water heating systems is available on the company’s website.

Concrete plants are commonly used in conjunction with construction of all types including roads, bridges, buildings (commercial and residential), structural supports, blocks, as well as other products that are manufactured from concrete. While some concrete mixtures do not have to meet a rigid specification, some projects especially those used in construction must meet certain specifications. In cold weather territories the use of water heating equipment is common, as is the use of water cooling equipment and ice in hot weather climates during the summer. The use of temperature manipulated aggregates and water in your concrete plant along with admixtures are the most common ways to ensure a consistent mix that can meet even the most detailed mixture specifications.

Selecting and sizing a water heater for concrete plants is challenging. Ready mix concrete plants may use 600 gallons of water or more in each truck loaded.  High production concrete plants are often capable of loading a truck every 2 minutes requiring more than 18,000 gallons of heated water over an hour. While not every concrete plant needs to be sized for maximum production, sizing the water heater and selecting the proper style for your specific business is very important. FESCO Direct knowledgeable sales team works with each individual customer to ensure they are properly evaluating the water requirement of their mix design and sizing the water system to suit their needs.  FESCO Direct officials boast they help concrete plant owners find their plants sweet spot with a large enough system to meet the demand, but not more than is needed.

Another area of choice for concrete plant owners is the type of water heating system they are using. There are direct contact water heaters, and in-direct, steam, boilers, and other types. Different systems require different fuel types and all have their own advantages and disadvantages. Factors considered include: overall efficiency, upfront costs, operational costs, length of time required, conditions and specific location, fuel sources and of course production rates.
