These water bearing systems are likely to freeze in cold weather

Water Bearing Systems Most Likely To Freeze.

Consider the following two questions:

1. Which systems use water in your facility? Water supply lines, condensate systems, piping, and safety showers probably come to mind.

2. What happens if those systems freeze? Interrupted systems, overheated equipment, and dangerous working conditions are all possible.

If water-bearing systems are left unprotected, the first cold front could make these worst-case scenarios a reality. Even heat-traced systems are at risk for freezing should electric tracing malfunction.

To ensure that your equipment and processes remain operational all winter long, consider implementing the HAT/FP automatic freeze protection valve.

Safety Shower & Face/Eyewash Stations

Exposed water lines on safety shower and face/eyewash stations are often left unprotected from freezing conditions. Installed at the lowest point on a safety station, the HAT/FP automatically bleeds cold water to prevent freezing and maintain safe working conditions for employees (as well as OSHA compliance).

 

Condensate Systems

An unavoidable by-product of steam heated processes, steam condensate is often recaptured for reuse. As such, steam condensate return lines are omnipresent in production facilities. The HAT/FP guards these often-lengthy return lines from costly damages due to freezing temperatures.

 

Water Supply Lines

Often located in non-temperature controlled environments, water supply lines are particularly vulnerable to cold weather. The HAT/FP valve automatically opens to drain cooled water and closes when warm water back fills to conserve water, eliminating the cost of human error associated with manual freeze valves.

 

Designed and manufactured in the U.S.A., our valves are constructed with stainless-steel for a guaranteed long service life protecting your investments.

No heat tracing system is infallible, and it snows in Hawaii from time to time. For a worry-free winter, implement the HAT/FP freeze protection valve.

Winter is coming – get ready and winterize your fleet!

The GURU Rebuild Program – keeping your freeze protection functioning at peak performance all winter long.

How old are your GURUs? A simple question, but one that many maintenance managers may not know the answer to.

The GURU Plug relies on a paraffin wax actuator to “pop” and drain water tanks before freeze damage can occur in cold weather. As the GURU ages, there is a tendency for it to lose a small amount of stroke. While this would never compromise your freeze protection, it can eventually lead to nuisance dumping above the valve’s set-point.

To avoid this, we recommend replacing your GURU Plugs every 18-24 months and developed the GURU Rebuild Program to provide an economical and green way to do so.

The GURU Rebuild Program restores used GURU plugs to full functionality. After being sent in to our factory, each plug is disassembled, cleaned, checked, and its interior components are replaced. Each refurbished valve goes through our standard testing procedure to confirm correct operation before being returned to the customer.

Rebuild Program Benefits

Undeniably the most beneficial part of the program, GURU Plugs are processed and returned in like-new condition for about half the cost of a new valve. This has proven to be a significant cost-savings option for locomotive operators who may have hundreds of GURUs installed at once.

An additional program benefit is what it generates less of – waste. Instead of simply trashing used GURUs that are nuisance dumping and purchasing a new one, the rebuild program recycles the majority of the valve’s components. This reduces overall environmental impact, so you can feel good knowing that we at ThermOmegaTech® are protecting both your investments and the planet.

How To Determine Your GURU Plug’s Age

Not sure how old your GURU Plug is? Our valves have a yearly-rotated color cap to easily identify the year it was sold. In addition, each cap is laser marked on the top with it’s month and year of manufacture. As per the below color cap chart, if your GURU isn’t red or white, it’s time to send them back!

As always, thank you for your continued support.

Protect Your Employees From Scalding Water With The HAT/SP Valve

In warmer months, the sun can easily overheat external water carrying pipes, resulting in emergency safety showers and face/eyewash stations being supplied with dangerously hot scalding water.

Even facilities with exclusively internal water carrying pipes are at risk of having water overheated by malfunctioning steam or electric pipe tracing systems.

While potentially scalding water being delivered through emergency fixtures is a safety hazard by itself, hot water above 100°F (37.8°C) may also cause an exacerbated chemical reaction.

Scalding Water Info graphic

To avoid scalding or a dangerous chemical reaction, the HAT/SP scald protection valve monitors and drains overheated water from safety stations to protect workers.

Installed in-line, the HAT/SP monitors ambient or fluid temperatures. When the valve’s internal thermostatic actuator senses that the temperature has reached 98°F (36.7°C), the valve will automatically modulate open and drain. Once the back-filling water temperature has fallen to 95°F (35°C), the valve closes to conserve water.

HAT/SP Scalding Water Protection Valve

HAT/SP Scald Protection Valve

Designed and manufactured in the USA, the HAT/SP functions mechanically and does not require a source of electricity to operate.

A Washdown Station for Every Industrial Application

In food processing, dairy, beverage, chemical, petrochemical, and pharmaceutical facilities maintaining a clean environment is critical to product quality and operational efficiency. Washdown stations are used to quickly and efficiently clean and sanitize equipment in place between production runs or shift changes.

ThermOmegaTech® offers three different washdown station options:

STVM® Steam & Water Washdown Station

The STVM® Washdown Station provides an effective high temperature wash in an easy-to-maintain package. Utilizing our patented Silent Venturi Mixing Valve (STVM®) technology, this washdown station mixes together steam and water to produce a high-powered wash at a user-defined temperature.STVM Washdown Station

Designed to be self-scouring, the mixing valve prevents mineral buildup in tight spaces, decreasing maintenance frequency. To further reduce time spent on required regular maintenance, the unit is in-line serviceable. The user simply switches out the STVM® cartridge with another on hand and the unit is back up and running in minutes.

Safety is our priority, so every STVM® Washdown Station has two built-in safety features – interlocking ball valves to prevent steam-only operation, and an automatic shut-off when output is 15°F over the unit’s temperature set-point (either 150°F or 185°F) or when cold water flow is interrupted.

HCX Water & Water Washdown Station

HCX Washdown StationFor facilities without an available steam supply, the HCX Washdown Station is an ideal solution. This unit utilizes individual globe valves to mix hot and cold water to a user-defined temperature, clearly displayed on the integrated temperature display gauge.

To prevent accidental scalding, the unit is offered with our unique SmartFlow feature. This in-line, over-temperature safety valve automatically stops flow should the unit’s output exceed a factory specified set-point.

HCS Single-Channel Washdown Station

HCS Washdown StationThe HCS Washdown Station simplifies washdown applications even further, providing a high-powered single stream of either cold water or pre-heated hot water at the turn of a ball valve. The unit employs an integrated temperature gauge to confirm output temperature.

Hot Water At The Turn Of A Tap, Even On The 56th Floor

Located in the heart of Austin, TX, The Austonian is a premier luxury residence boasting 360° views, unparalleled amenities, and a Four Star rating from Austin Energy Green Building. Towering over downtown at 683 feet tall, The Austonian is the tallest residential tower West of the Mississippi River.
The Austonian Hot Water At The Turn Of A Tap, Even On The 56th Floor
Despite its laundry list of amenities, The Austonian’s managers were not satisfied with hot water delivery time to the building’s units. In some cases, 2-3 minutes were needed for warm water to reach fixtures.

A team of engineers was assembled and tasked with finding a solution and improving hot water delivery times.

With more than 50 floors to retrofit, the CircuitSolver® was deemed the ideal and only solution to The Austonian’s domestic hot water system challenge.
Hot water distribution lines had originally been placed in corridor ceilings and branched into residential units during construction. Certified plumbers installed CircuitSolvers® in each unit’s ceiling near the hot water return line. Located behind false air vents for easy access, shut-off valves were placed on either side of the CircuitSolvers® for ease of maintenance in the future.

A majority of the work done was in corridors and access to private residences had to be scheduled. Fortunately construction time in residences was minimized due to CircuitSolver’s® simple installation and set-up.

Residents are reportedly pleased with improved hot water delivery times following CircuitSolver® installation. Units with wait times of multiple minutes saw a dramatic reduction, and fixtures now reach proper temperature in 20-30 seconds. A reduction of water waste and the implementation of lower horsepower pumps has also resulted in significant utility cost savings.
This success story is one among many, and thousands of installations around the country benefit from implementing the CircuitSolver®.

Cooling Fluid Control Valves Ensure Uniform Product Quality

(Warminster, PA)Spring marching towards the promise of summer is a welcome relief from frigid winter weather. But while we are enjoying warmer days, many industrial applications and processes need to be precisely maintained within a specific temperature range all year round, no matter the season.

Some processes/equipment that require continual thermal management include liquid cooled compressors, die-casting equipment, thermal energy storage, engines, molding equipment, batteries and electronics. Our temperature control valves continuously sense fluid temperature and automatically modulate to regulate outlet fluid temperature within a narrow and pre-selected range.

Completely self-operating, our valves open and establish flow on rising temperatures using thermostatic actuator technology, making them ideal for industrial applications requiring highly-precise thermal control.

HAT/RA Reverse Acting Heat Actuated Trap Valves Cooling Fluid Control ValvesThese valves improve process efficiency, reduce system wear, maintain consistent product quality, conserve energy, and can save money.

HAT/RA & TV/HAT-RA

The HAT/RA and TV/HAT-RA valves are used to regulate the flow of cooling media in thermal relief applications requiring the removal of heat from a variety of equipment or processes. These valves are installed in-line and regulate flow as needed to maintain optimal operating temperatures and minimize consumption and waste.

HAT/RA-LP & TV/HAT-RA-LP

The HAT/RA-LP and TV/HAT-RA-LP valves operate similarly to the HAT/RA and TV/HAT-RA with the additional feature of  “leak ports” that never fully close for increased sensitivity to upstream process temperature variations.

Our cooling control valves are 100% Made In America with stainless steel components for a long, corrosion-free service life.

ThermOmegaTech® GURU® Plug Rebuild Program Maintains Freeze Protection at Peak Performance

(Warminster, PA USA) Dana Logue, Product Manager – ThermOmegaTech®’s Railroad Division announces the company’s GURU® Rebuild Program.

GURU Flag and Key Rail Freeze ProtectionThermOmegaTech®’s GURU® Plugs utilize self-actuating, thermostatic technology to automatically monitor the water temperature in a locomotives engine coolant and water storage tanks. When the actuator senses that the temperature in the water-bearing system has reached the set point of the valve, the plug opens and drains the water from the tank before it can freeze. The plugs are completely mechanical and require no electrical or air connections to operate.

ThermOmegaTech® recommends that GURU®s should be replaced every 18-24 months. According to Mrs. Logue, “The characteristic tendency of the GURU® Plug actuator is to lose some small amount of stroke as it ages. While this change is a ‘safe’ tendency relating to freeze protection, the upward creep could cause nuisance-dumping. Our rebuild program returns the refurbished valves to the standards of a new plug, achieving peak performance.”

 An innovator in freeze protection, ThermOmegaTech®’s GURU®s are the North American railroad standard for protecting locomotives. Each year, GURU® technology protects billions of dollars in rail equipment from expensive freeze damage and lengthy repairs. The Rebuild Program is designed to clean, refurbish, test, and return used GURU® plugs to full operation.

Mrs. Logue notes that during the rebuild process, the plug is completely disassembled and checked. Interior components are replaced, and the refurbished valve goes through three tests to ensure full functionality before being returned to the customer: Cartridge Test, Leak Test, and Pop Test.

The program will be operated out of ThermOmegaTech®’s company headquarters and manufacturing facility in Warminster, PA USA where the valves were originally assembled, tested, and distributed to their end users. GURU PC® valves, used to protect passenger cars from freeze damage, are also eligible for the GURU® Rebuild Program.
