Hydro-Thermal Industrial Heater

The Industrial Direct Steam Injection Heater
The Hydroheater heats water, or other slurries, to a specified temperature through direct injection of a controlled amount of steam.
If you require:

Uniform cooking of your liquid or slurry
Precise temperature control
Shorter production time
Reduced unscheduled downtime
Reduced carbon footprint

Then the Industrial Hydroheater is the product you must consider!

Benefits of the Hydroheater

The Hydroheater® provides you with the following significant benefits:

Reduces energy/steam consumption
100% Thermal Efficiency; uses both latent and sensible heat of the steam
Eliminates energy losses through condensate return
Eliminates the heat transfer barrier of heat exchangers for improved efficiency
Reduces process heating time
Quicker startups (tankless water system)
Single pass in-line process heating
Faster tank heating (self-pumping recirculation loop)
Sonic velocity steam injection allows for instantaneous heating
No need to use an external steam valve-the hydroheater uses internal modulation
Precise temperature control to +/- 0.5 degree over large liquid turndown ratio
Fast response to changes in temperature setpoint

Maintenance benefits

Prevents scaling through sonic velocity and turbulent mixing action
No worry of plates and tubes ever fouling
Continuously cleaned by its own turbulent mixing action
Eliminates need for condensate system (smaller footprint)
Generally recommended annual maintenance
Wide range of Applications
Capable of heating process fluids up to 75% solids
Effective at heating high viscosity process fluids
Provides high shear at point of steam injection for uniform heating and cooking of starch, ethanol and various other applications
