ACE’s “Mini-Pack™”, the semi-instantaneous potable water heater, is a perfect fit for the health care industry. With their proven design, small foot-print, high volume output, and close temperature control, hundreds of units have been installed successfully.
Vertical or horizontal Mini-Pack models are available, along with a double-wall option. All models minimize floor space usage and eliminate the need for large costly storage tanks which can be the breeding ground for Legionella. The double-wall tube Mini-Pack offers a proven, practical way to comply with the latest National Uniform Plumbing Code requirement for protection against cross contamination.
The Mini-Pack has an all stainless steel shell with a copper “U” tube bundle that heats potable water using either steam or boiler water. A small pump circulates potable water in the shell over the tube bundle using a small volume of heated water that is contained in the upper section of the Mini-Pack and is mixed with the circulated system water from the building. The stainless steel shell also ensures rust free hot water.
Output flows from 1 to 300 gallons per minute are possible. Separate Mini-Packs can be provided for multiple temperature applications or mixing valves can be used to provide the desired temperature for each requirement. A temperature sensor accurately adjusts the steam (or water) control valve to maintain the desired output water temperature to within plus or minus 4 degrees Fahrenheit over the normal operating range of the Mini-Pack.
Installing and maintaining your ACE Mini-Packs is easy. Multiple units can be used to avoid disruption of the hot water supply during normal servicing, while vertical mounting, in most sizes, allows the tube bundle to be removed without disturbing the water piping. The popular Mini-Pack comes completely packaged, ready for hook-up. All of the operating control valves, strainers, circulating pumps, safety relief valves, gauges and temperature controls are pre-engineered and factory packaged for easy installation and quick start-up.
The ACE Mini-Pack makes it easy for you to keep your health care facility in peak performance.
