30 gpm heat exchanger and 1 1/4 inch servo valve

Hiniker Heat Exchanger, Flowmeter, and Servo Valve

The 30 gpm heat exchanger and 1 1/4 inch servo valve were introduced in 2007. This new design provides more flow capacity than previous models. The heat exchanger condenses the vapor into a liquid, allowing accurate measurement and control.

High speeds, high rates, large applicators and low nurse tank pressure necessitate the need for two heat exchangers and possibly pulling multiple tanks.

Hiniker Dual Heat Exchanger (for increased capacity)

The Hiniker Dual Heat Exchanger package includes the 1 1/4 inch stainless steel flowmeter, the 1 1/4 inch stainless steel servo valve, and a durable universal mounting system with 1/2 inch plate steel mount brackets to fit on applicators with 4 inch to 7 inch tubing. The components are pre assembled with 3000 lb. forged steel unions and fittings and extra heavy Schedule 80 pipe nipples which meets current specifications as set forth by The Fertilizer Institute, Compressed Gas Association, and American National Standards Institute. Piping and fittings not listed by these governing bodies should not be used for anhydrous ammonia application. SAFTEY FIRST!! To allow for maximum flexibility, shutoff valve, manifold, and plumbing from the tank are not included in this package but can be ordered separately.
