What is the most common thing to do with hot liquor from the heat exchanger? Is it best to send to the floor (in a dump) or to a Hot Liquor Tank?

When outfitting a brewery we typically send the heated water to the hot liquor tank. This is a significant saving of resource (water) and energy (heat). I hope this is helpful.

The best way to deal with the hot liquor from the HE is to recycle it. To dump them will waste too much heat and energy. According to our production experience, you could connect the cold water outlet to the HLT with a pipe(after cooling the hot wort, the cold water's temperature would rise much almost 40 C to 55 C). The HLT with jacket could store the hot liquor. In this way you will save more energy.
Hope it helps you.

It's best to direct that hot water to your HLT.  If you brew soon, you'll have hot or warm water to begin with and will use less energy to get up to strike temp.  If you don't brew soon, you at least recovered the water.

Some breweries are using tankless water heaters, and they don't have this option as a result.  That is one downside of a tankless water heater system.
