CIP Certified Sanitary Inline Steam Heater

Custom Steam Heater 

The Komax sanitary inline steam heater is made of stainless steel, polished (or electropolished), and designed for CIP process. The typical applications for the sanitary inline steam heater in the food and beverage industry are heating of water, CIP (clean in place) solutions, and other heavy viscous slurries such as tomato paste, starches, peanut butter, molasses, and purees.

Using the patented Equalizer™ Mixing Module, no motors/no moving parts are needed to perform the steam absorption, allowing for a continuous process with low to no maintenance or downtime. The Equalizer™ also encourages a lower level of noise pollution and vibrations throughout the line, making the Komax Sanitary inline steam heater provide less stress on the system compared to conventional steam heating devices.

Product Benefits

Equalizer Mixing Module

The Komax Equalizer® Mixing Module consists of six mixing chambers installed with Komax’ helical mixing elements that allow contacting of the steam and product to be heated (i.e. water). These elements will then divide and recombine the process flow to form multiple impingent blending zones that produce high turbulence and small steam bubble sizes for a more uniform temperature output with no vibration, no water hammer, and no excessive noise.

Additional Product Details

Steam Heaters can be used in all sorts of industries, which include but are not limited to: Food and Beverage, Oil and Gas Exploration, Chemical Processing, Mining, Plastics Production, and Natural Gas Production.  
Yes! At Komax Systems, we have four different steam heating offerings. Namely, we offer a direct injection steam heater, a sanitary inline steam heater, a steam sparger tank heater, and a tailings solvent recovery heater. Each of these four products provides a unique steam heating solution to a pipeline process. Get in contact with one of our sales engineers to determine which solution is best for your project!
Komax Steam Heaters are used to increase the temperature of a process fluid by injecting saturated steam into the line. The steam is injected just upstream of our Equalzier(r) Mixing Module, which shears the steam bubbles to very small sizes to reduce any vibrations or shaking that may be caused by water hammer/collapsing steam bubbles.
