Direct steam injection heaters – what is all the hype?

Direct steam injection heaters use 100% of the available steam energy to heat water-based fluids. The steam is injected directly into the fluid being heated with no energy loss, resulting in steam energy savings of up to 30%. They allow you to have precise outlet temperature control and rapid response to process temperature change requirements. You also greatly reduce or eliminate the need to clean or repair tube bundles and eliminate the need for steam traps and troublesome condensate pumps.
