Direct Steam Injection Heating

What is Direct Steam Injection Heating?


In a direct steam injection heating application, steam is mixed directly with the fluid being processed. The mixing is instantaneous, quiet and 100% of the steam energy is transferred to the fluid. Because steam is part of the process there is no need for a condensate return. The high velocity steam injection design of the steam injection heater eliminates scaling, fouling and steam hammering. Direct steam injection heaters are inline heaters so are installed in existing piping and do not require additional floor space.

ProSonix manufactures a complete line of direct steam injection heaters for industrial applications. The steam to water heat exchanger is utilized for applications for water heating, slurry heating, hi viscosity fluids, and hot water storage tank heating. From simple applications to tough to process slurries, ProSonix has an equipment solution.
