Hot Water Wash Tank

ESI’s hot water wash tanks are used to remove excess salt from salt cured rubber profiles. Because the salt solidifies immediately when touched with cold-water, hot water sprayed with special high velocity nozzles is used. Tanks can be supplied in various lengths and with one or more zones. Multiple zone hot water washes are fitted with a cascading water system so that the cleanest water is used in the downstream section and the salt concentration increases in each zone closer to the salt tank. Special electric heaters, mounted to the exterior of the reservoir are utilized to avoid heater failure due to salt buildup. Water temperature is closely controlled and insulation is utilized to ensure tank efficiency. Tanks can also be supplied with integrated spray cooling on a common frame as the hot water wash.
