Arkansas Kraft recognized the significance of this capability in improving machine efficiency and productivity, leading to the installation of a full Dryer Management System, along with the stationary syphons and Turbulator bars.
Because of the use of the shell and tube exchanger with turbulator rods, the Ecotherm system can heat up water in one second, he says, in comparison to conventional hot water systems, where internal heat exchangers require a long time to heat up and the boiler's burner will have to be constantly turned off and on, resulting in a waste of energy.
