Firestorm® heater is updated for food service
Heatec, an Astec Industries Company located in Chattanooga, Tennessee, has introduced a new version of their Firestorm® water heater that is certified for food service. The heater is certified in accordance with NSF/ANSI Standard 5. This certification means that all parts of the heater that contact the water it heats are lead free. The heater is entitled to bear the official NSF seal of approval:
Firestorm heaters can now be produced with outputs up to 36 million Btu/hour.
Heatec originally introduced the Firestorm heater in 2006 to heat mix water used to make concrete. However, it is highly suitable for use in a variety of other industries. A key feature is its on-demand water heating that eliminates the need for water storage tanks. Another key feature is its extremely high thermal efficiency of 99 percent, which provides significant savings on fuel costs.
Heatec designs and builds this heater at their modern factory in Chattanooga, Tennessee. They also assist with on-site installation at customer plants and terminals.
