The heated water can be pumped to reservoirs and used for wash water, provide pre-heated water for a boiler, or be used in hydronic heating systems. At the ODRF it is used to pre-heat the water used to clean and sterilize the tank and tubing in the milk room, which is a significant energy requirement on dairies.
