Advantages of Direct Steam Injection
Exceptional Energy Savings
Compared to heat exchangers and spargers direct contact steam heating is nearly 100% energy efficient.
Precise Temperature Control
Hydroheaters maintain precise temperature control using internal modulation of the steam.
The patented self-cleaning Hydroheater eliminates the chance of downtime and risking employee safety due to cleaning. When properly maintained, Hydroheaters can perform at optimal levels, never causing an un-scheduled shut-down.
Instant Temperature Rise
Steam mixes with the water or process fluid inside the valve at very high (often sonic) velocity causing an almost instantaneous temperature attainment.
Hydroheaters are small in comparison to heat exchangers, fitting into the pipeline and freeing up production floor space.
Due to patented internal modulation (valve mixing), the Hydroheater maintains a quiet hammer-free operation.
