DDI Congratulates Joe Gentle of process Equipment Solutions, for obtaining the 1st DDI Heat Exchanger/Parker Boiler – combination

DDI Congratulates Joe Gentle of process Equipment Solutions, for obtaining the 1st DDI Heat Exchanger/Parker Boiler – combination.

This achievement will open the doors for DDI Heat Exchangers Inc and Parker Boilers Co., to compete as a joint effort in the Heat Exchanger/Boiler package.

The DDI Heat Exchanger can have Sludge in both sides and even be used as Sludge-to-Sludge Heat Recovery. (In this case it is used as Water to Sludge).
The Parker Boiler has dual input, Natural and Bio Gas.

Please find attached an E Drawing of the 2 units where the Boiler is mounted on top the DDI Rectangular wide gap channeled Heat Exchanger.
(you can rotate or zoom in etc to any side or from any angle).

DDI Pig Cleaning

DDI incorporated a Pig Cleaning System to work with the DDI Rectangular channels.

The Advantages having the Pig Cleaning System are:

1- Allows for cleaning via a “Pig” with out a need for Sludge flow Drainage.

2- Allows for cleaning via a “Pig” with out opening the DOORS.

3- Allows for cleaning via a “Pig” the Internal of a Rectangular channeled Heat Exchanger, to reduce the Fouling and improve the Heat Exchangers efficiency.

4- It can be added to any DDI standard Dia flange.

5- It can be used in the Water side too.

6- Allows for launching of the Pig and Extraction/Catching it too with the same parts (reverse order).

7- It avoids the risk of “losing” the Pig in the pipes, or the pig being stuck in a pipe.

8- Allows for having a clean (no liquid) working area, to insert and remove the Pig. (for the benefit of the Technicians). I.e. The cavity could be emptied and cleaned with fresh water.

9- Allows for a NO OBSTRUCTION in the flow of the Sludge, while the process is on.

10- Practical modifications designed manufactured by DDI utilizing available Valves.

We want to thank for all who dropped by at our booth in WEFTEC New Orleans Show, to hear about our NON PLUG Heat Exchangers and HEAT RECOVERY and innovated equipment.

2 Heat Exchangers that operate in a Waste Water Treatment Plant CONTINUOUSLY for about 9 years WITHOUT ANY BLOCKAGE or any Maintance

DDI the manufacturer of the “Cube”, “Square” Channels, Low Maintance, Heat Exchangers, is proud to announce that there are 2 Heat Exchangers that operate in a Waste Water Treatment Plant CONTINUOUSLY for about 9 years WITHOUT ANY BLOCKAGE or any Maintance.

DDI opened one of the Heat Exchangers for inspection inside (both doors) for signs of blockage or any other possible problem. The channels seemed clear of any sign, or risk, of blockage. Tear and wear was minimal. Sign of rust was very faint, basically non-existent. The Pressures and Flows were tested in about 1.5 times the original design. We also performed an AIR pressure test to check for minute, tiny leakages, NONE WAS FOUND.

We did change the gazettes on the two doors (see pictures below).

3- DDI now has a Boilers and Lobe Pumps package as part of Our DDI Non Plug Heat Exchangers.

4- DDI is proud to have 35 REPRESENTATIVES covering most of North America. (A list could be found at www.ddi-heatexchangers.com)

Doors opened the first time after 8.5 years.
The gaskets after 8.5 years.
Inside – looks clean and no damages after 8.5 years.


We will be exhibiting at the WEFTEC 2004 show in
New Orleans in October 2004.

Please look out for our presentation at the
10th World Congress on Anaerobic Digestion.
Which will be held in Montreal, Canada from August 29th,
until September 2nd, 2004.

DDI is a well-established company (since 1980) experienced in the design and manufacturing of plate type.

“CUBE”™, “Square”™, NON-PLUGABLE Heat Exchangers specifically suitable for Heat Recovery  from liquid waste materials containing large size solids such as Municipal Sludges & other processes.

DDI’s unique Heat Exchanger & Recovery design was developed with large capital, R&D investment and solutions provided by several top design engineers working on R&D with the Government’s help & encouragement.

These days, the Heat Recovery and Energy savings have become even more critical in every industry.

DDI has designed and installed Sludge Heat Exchangers that have been operating for as long as 7 (seven) years without the need of any maintenance.

The new DDI HE “high tech” for the WWTP (Waste Water Treatment Plants) can be used to heat sludge in a Mesophilic digester (35º C, or 95º F) or a Thermophilic digester (55º C, 134º F) or to conform to the new Class A solids disposal law, via heating to about (71º C, 160º F).

This heated sludge could only be used in our NON-PLUG Heat Exchanger to economically and efficiently RECOVER the heat, by heating the incoming cold sludge.

Our specialized type of HEAT EXCHANGERS are destined for:

A)  Recovery of Wasted Heat in Sewage Treatment Plants (or other industries), by the preheating of Cold Raw Sludge with the outgoing Hot Sludge.

B)     Preheating of Raw Sludge with hot liquid before introduction to the Anaerobic digesters.

C)  Cooling of Digested Sludge from Thermophilic to Mesophilic.

The cost for this innovative Heat Recovery Equipment could be recovered within a few months, allowing for substantial savings to the Municipality or Industry, year after year.

With the use of DDI equipment, ENVIRONMENTAL benefits can be realized together with Reduced Maintenance Costs.

DDI has a unique Finance plan whereby the customer may pay partially from the energy saved.

DDI Exhibited at the WEFTEC  2002 show in Chicago and WEFTEC 2003 show in Los Angeles and WEFTEC 2004 in New Orleans.
DDI will be in WEFTEC 2005 in Washington.

See our website for price COMPARISON of DDI HEAT EXCHANGERS to the COMPETITION. The table illustrates, that due to maintenance costs, the competition might cost 200,120 US$ more in 10 years (or 450,560 US$ in 20 years).
