Boiler Feedwater Heater
Direct Steam Injection heating for pre-heating the boiler feedwater can improve the thermodynamic efficiency of a Industrial Steam Boiler system. Pre-heating boiler feedwater can reduces plant operating costs and also helps to avoid thermal shock to the boiler metal.
Read how the Pro-Sonix boiler feedwater direct steam injection heating systems are great for replacing aging or outdated heat exchangers in coal fired power plants.
Deaerator Feedwater Heating
Raising the temps on returning boiler feedwater will allow for the oxygen to be more efficiently released in the deaerator than at lower temps.
Check out a real life case study for deaerator feedwater heating with direct steam injection with Pro-Sonix powerful PSX heater system.
Lime Slaker Heating
A number of industries use hydrated lime addition for their processes. Hydrated lime (or calcium hydroxide, or slaked lime) is usually a dry powder resulting from the controlled slaking of quicklime with water. The exothermic or released heat of reaction is captured and used to evaporate the excess slaking water. High calcium quicklime readily reacts with water to form hydrated lime.
Flue Gas Desulphurization
The addition of hot water to a lime slaker can help improve and reduce the reaction time thus saving costs by reducing the amount of lime used. High turn down and fast response for seasonal changes in water temps.
Pre-heating Vessels & Turbines
For vessels and turbines that operate at very high temperatures, above 300 °F, the PSX Heater can re-circulate hot water that is ramped up in temperature to avoid the risk of thermal shock on welds and metal surfaces. Direct Steam Injection heating can be used to heat water or glycol to allow a controlled warm-up of these systems.
Proper temperature control and the ability to handle high amounts of superheated steam make the I-Series Direct Steam Injection heater a good selection for R/O water heating.
Sour Water Stripping & Evaporative Flash Recovery
Sour water (reboiler) presents unique challenges for traditional heating methods. The ProSonix Direct Steam Injection heater can address corrosive issues and is designed to eliminate plugging & fouling problems with it's self cleaning design.
Vent & Waste Steam Recovery
The PSX J-Series Jet Sparger can help recover flash and vent steam that is typically released can be recovered and injected back into the process for energy savings.
Tank & Vessel Heating – Jet Sparger Optimization
Heating of water tanks or vessels in many applications is done to stage hot water for use in production, cleaning, line & filter flushing, and a number of other uses. Common methods of tank heating are through the use of heat exchangers, eductors, or spargers. The incoming water is usually around 45 – 60°F and is typically heated anywhere from 100°F – 150°F for applications involving sanitizing or cleaning.
