Industrial process heating equipment and solutions specialist Babcock Wanson has supplied a new TPC-B Thermal Fluid Heater to Crisp Malt to replace the existing Babcock Wanson heater that has been in operation for an incredible 30 years!

Crisp Malt, a British malting company dating back to 1870, supplies high quality English, Scottish and Organic malts to award-winning breweries and distilleries across the globe. Crisp Malt combines traditional and modern malting techniques at its sites in England and Scotland. 

An important part of the process is the drying of the malt. At its Fakenham site, a Babcock Wanson Thermal Fluid Heater has been performing this task for the past 30 years. Having well and truly served its purpose, a replacement was required, and the company naturally returned to Babcock Wanson. 

A new TPC 6000B Thermal Fluid Heater was recommended, based on its reliability, high efficiency and large output. 

The TPC 6000B is the largest Thermal Fluid Heater in the TPC-B range. These fully automatic coil type, multi-pass heaters come complete with integrated burner, control system and safety devices. They provide optimal distribution of the heat, high fluid velocity in the exchange tubes and continuous flow monitoring to ensure long thermal fluid and system life and the highest level of safety. 

The new TPC 6000B Thermal Fluid Heater installed at Crisp Malt offers several advantages over its elderly predecessor, including improved controls, Human Machine Interface and overall efficiency, plus a considerable reduction in emissions to comply with current regulations.

The TPC 6000B Thermal Fluid Heater was supplied by Babcock Wanson along with new pumps and valves. 

Whilst the new heater was being produced, Crisp Malt took advantage of Babcock Wanson’s Thermal Fluid Heating system rental service. Two ‘plug and play’ TPC 2000B Thermal Fluid Heaters were delivered to site and set up by Babcock Wanson’s experienced commissioning engineers to guarantee production.

Following the installation of the new heaters, a full-service agreement has also been implemented.

Babcock Wanson offers a complete range of products and services for boiler houses and other process heating needs, from steam boilers, thermal fluid heaters, rapid steam generators and hot water boilers to VOC and odour treatment by thermal oxidation, water treatment or process air heating solutions. The company aims to help optimise customer’s energy production with high quality products and efficient service.
