Steam Sparger Tank Heater

This versatile series of steam heaters is designed for the direct injection of steam into tanks for heating water compatible products in a quiet, vibration free, and 100% efficient fashion. In addition, the sparger tank heater develops a strong stirring action to help keep any solids or particulates in suspension. This stirring action also helps to produce uniform temperature throughout the tank volume allowing accurate thermostatic control.

End Connections & Available Custom Options

Flanged End: Flanged End connection allows an easy mounting of the Scepter to the steam supply line. As a general standard, the scepters have raised face ASME B16.5 flange but can also be provided with a DIN (metric) flange as well.
Threaded End: Komax Systems offers a male and female NPT/BSPT end connection on the scepter to be threaded directly onto the steam line.
Weld Prep End: For custom configuration Komax Systems offers weld prep end connections on static mixers.

*All static mixers are custom made; end connection type can be made per customer request.

The Equalizer® Mixing Module –

The scepter tank steam heater draws in the liquid with a vacuum effect created by momentum of the steam existing in the steam sparger. The liquid then is drawn into the six fixed mixing chambers of the Equalizer™ Mixing Module, where water and steam are divided and recombined by the mixing elements to form multiple impingent mixing zones for uniform temperature control within the tank. This division and recombination of streams shears the steam bubbles to a small size and ensures an operation that is free of vibration, noise, and/or auxiliary air supply.
