What Are Cox Water Heaters

Brass Founders Cox Water Heaters.

The Cox Water Heater is a simple, economic and environmentally friendly way to heat cold water by the use of steam.

Cox Water Heaters provide the advantage of taking waste steam to heat cold water efficiently, economically and with no damaging effects to the environment with the added benefit of a constant source of cheap hot water.

Cox water heater bodies are made from high quality corrosion resistant materials. The closed circuit nature of the heater means that when installed and used in accordance with the technical brochure, the discharged hot water from the outlet cannot constitute a hazard.

Where To Use

Cox Water Heater Applications.

Cox Water Heaters have found applications in industries where process steam is available, and where hot water is required for various purposes including:

  • Cleaning Process Work Of All Descriptions
  • Temperature Maintenance Of Circulating Water In Various Applications
  • Economiser Feed Water Pre-Heat
  • Temperature Boosting Of Water In Coil Heated Storage Tanks
  • Boiler Feed Water Heating
  • Heaters For Breweries, Dairies, Distilleries, Tanneries, Chemical And Paper Industries

How Cox Water Heaters Work.

The design of the Cox Water Heater maintains the basic practice of mixing steam and cold water, whilst at the same time eliminating the undesirable features mentioned above. This is achieved by a system of steam nozzles and a carefully arranged water supply mixing with the steam in the heat exchange chamber. The chamber incorporates a large available condensation surface as a consequence of the metal ‘Raschig` rings that fill it. Complete condensation of the steam is thereby achieved without any of the knocking which would otherwise occur as a consequence of the sudden changes in volume.

The heaters are capable of working with varying steam and water pressures within the design specification of the unit. There is no need for the steam and water supply pressures to be equal, although the heating capacity is of course dependent on the pressure and the amount of steam that is conveyed to the heater. As the total heat content of the steam is utilised, with minimum heat loss, a considerably larger output is achieved than with conventional tubular or plate heat exchangers.
