Intellihot adds delicious to its repertoire!
When this well-known producer of snack foods acquired a large industrial building in Beaumont, CA, the management chose Intellihot’s robust, low-maintenance technology to provide the plant with a highly efficient water heating system to meet the large volume of output they were expecting.
This producer of snack food including pork rinds and cracklins is headquartered in in Lima, OH. The company has six facilities in the United States and three international ventures. The company also produces popular snacks like Cinnamon Churros, Original OnYums and Chile Limon Chicharinas. Its family of brands include Rudolph’s, Southern Recipe, Pepe’s El Original, Gaslamp Popcorn and Lee’s Pig Skins.
The new facility at Beaumont, CA was expecting a high volume of production and needed a system that could meet its large demand for hot water. The managers were also looking for efficient, reliable equipment with 0% downtime, and that required lower maintenance than the typical tank-type systems commonly used today.
The Intellihot Solution
Two Intellihot iQ1501s were installed for a combined capacity of 3,000,000 Btu/hr and easily handle the plant’s rigorous production schedule. The units provide 70 GPM of 140 degree water all day long. The heaters also work together to offer the plant 92% thermal efficiency with redundancy of 12:1 and an industry best 100:1 turn-down ratio.
