Supply and Installation of a Hot Water Plant at Ongwediva Meat Processing Facitly
Ministry of Agriculture Date: 2020
A modern hot water plant was installed based on heat pump technology. Stiebel Eltron storage tanks as well as heat pumps are supplied that are extremely energy efficient and long life expectancy while at the same time low on maintenance. Further energy savings are achieved as the system is connected to heat recovery units as part of the refrigeration plant.
The challenge of such a system is to guarantee even loading and unloading of the tanks with water to guarantee a uniform temperature distribution in all tanks. This has been achieved by careful piping planing based on the Tichelmann principal.
The system comprises of the following:
- 6x 1000 L buffer tanks
- 2x 23kW heat pump units.
- various pumps and control unit
