Key Benefits of an ATTEC System
Whether designed with a stand-alone control system or to be integrated with your plant process, ATTEC® systems are completely customized to your process needs. Each system will be shipped only after we have personally tested the pressure and controls in our in-house lab testing facilities, and our field service technicians are available to help with start-up support to assure your smart investment in an ATTEC system. They will also provide you with thorough documentation for your plant records.
...offer better customized support
Designed to optimize the Hydroheater's performance, every ATTEC system is engineered, built, and installed to the individual specifications of your process. This includes process requirements & type, flows, and certifications (3A, ASME, CE/PED, CRN).
...are easy to CIP
Many direct steam injection heaters incorporate a sparger in their design, making CIP difficult. Our simple stream-lined design makes it easy to clean in place.
...offer smoother operation without fouling
Many externally modulated direct steam injection heaters cause hammering, scaling, and plugging. Internally modulated Hydroheaters ensure constant steam pressure and velocity, producing a uniformly heated product without process issues.

ATTEC eliminates "burn on", improving quality while reducing maintenance...
Inside a jacketed kettle, product can "burn on", causing loss of product, contamination, and heat transfer fouling. Those problems can in turn result in lower product quality, increased processing time, higher energy consumption, and more maintenance. The Hydroheater ATTEC system works by injecting steam directly into the product - eliminating "burn on".
ATTEC heats more consistently...
Steam spargers in a kettle can produce hot spots that overcook product. Hydroheater has no sparger, and no resultant hot spots. Its combining tube can be adjusted to ensure steam contact with all slurry granules for complete, even heating.
ATTEC is more energy efficient...
With kettles, heat can be lost as steam escapes from the surface. Hydroheater is 100% energy efficient, using only the steam necessary to properly heat the product.
