Investing in a high quality heating and/or cooling system is crucial when temperature plays a vital role in determining the quality of your finished product.
A ‘jacketed vessel’ or ‘water jacketed vessel’ is a container created to enable a user to accurately control the temperature of its contents. Within the jacket surrounding the container, fluid (often water) is circulated, to either heat or cool your product, or to maintain it at a certain temperature.
The Adelphi range of jacketed vessels are manufactured in pharmaceutical grade 316L stainless steel, with a 304 stainless steel 1/4 bar low pressure water jacket. They are suitable for use with a non-pressurised water supply, with hot or cold water for heating or cooling. These vessels are supplied with a 1/4″ BSP water inlet at the bottom of the jacket and a 1/2″ BSP outlet at the top. They have crevice and pit free interiors and are polished throughout, to ensure only the highest levels of hygiene for your product.
In many instances, products can require both heating and cooling. You may, for example, need your product to be heated to a set temperature, before being quickly cooled during the final stage of the manufacturing process. This may necessitate a chiller being configured to work with your jacketed vessel. Adelphi can provide expert advice about such configurations; we have recently created a bespoke 100L jacketed vessel for a customer manufacturing E-Liquids, which included a chilling unit (see image below).
Our jacketed vessels are connected to a vessel’s jacket using pipes or hoses, which creates a closed loop; this ensures that the fluid within the jacket never comes into contact with your product in the inside container.
At Adelphi, we are able to create jacketed vessels from 2L to 50L as standard, but other sizes are available upon request. Our largest ever bespoke project was a 2,500L water jacketed vessel for natural health industry giant Nelsons Spatone. Their Trefriw Wells Spa water is heated to approximately twelve degrees, to facilitate easier mixing with flavourings. Read more about this creation here >>>
Jacketed vessels are often utilised by manufacturers in the following industries:
- Adhesives and Sealants
- Cosmetics and Personal Care
- Food and Beverage
- E-Liquid & CBD Oil
