How the Hot Water EZ Heater Works
This unique patented design assures precise steam control and produces predictable results based on the position of the stem plug. A variable-area steam nozzle meters steam flow at the point where steam and liquid first contact and mix. This technique eliminates the need for an external steam control valve.
Choked flow is the phenomenon of accelerating a vapor to maximum velocity by creating a pressure differential through an engineered nozzle. Establishing choked flow precisely controls the heating of the liquid by metering the steam flow.
Here's how it works:
» Directly plumbed into the process piping
» Water enters the inlet flowing past the patented diffuser
» Steam enters at the inlet traveling through the diffuser as it's injected into the water through small holes
(The process utilizes our patented MACH® Diffuser Technology)
» An actuator, controlled by the downstream temperature gauge, moves the stem plug exposing the
necessary amount of holes, discharging the exact amount of steam needed to reach set-point
» The turbulent nature of this high velocity discharge enables steam to instantaneously penetrate,
disperse and efficiently produce uniform heating
Designed for specific operating conditions The EZ Heater is made for your specific operating conditions. We need to know a little bit about your process and plant set-up in order to design the heater or skid that will work best for your conditons.
