With the cost of fuel and other energy sources rather expensive finding energy efficient ways to heat liquids for oil refineries, industrial buildings, food processing plants and other industrial plants is quite important. Komax Systems has led the way in energy efficiency, especially with its direct injection steam heater.
The Komax direct injection Steam Heater has no moving parts and can provide small or large amounts of hot unlimited hot water instantly with very accurate temperature settings with 99% to 100% efficiency and it is 20% to 25% more efficient then other heat exchangers and 30% more energy efficient then indirect systems, heater coils in hot water supply tanks. In addition to that the installation costs require a very low capital. Not only are our direct injection steam heaters energy efficient and low cost but they also dramatically reduce noise, reduce vibration, reduce scaling and reduce water hammer compared to other steam heaters that are on the market.
The steam and cold water in their direct steam heater are mixed together instantly by their extraordinary internal static mixer. A temperature controller activates the steam control valve that can be manually or electronically set to the temperature that is needed and the tank heater develops a very energetic stirring action to keep any particles or solids in suspension. The Komax direct injection steam heater is also less expensive then other heat exchangers on the market and is also quite easy to install. Due to the fact that it has no moving parts, it’s also easier and less costly to operate and since the heater is the same diameter as the incoming cold water feed line it takes up less space then other steam heaters and it will easily fit into an existing pipeline, requiring only a steam supply. All in all, the Komax Direct Injection Steam Heater is a very energy efficient and cost saving steam heater.
