You get into the shower before work. Although you normally only open the dial halfway for scorching heat, this morning you crank it all the way to hot and still have to suffer through glacial cold water. Limited heating is an inconvenience for residential systems, but in production environments, these inconveniences can lead to detrimental losses in time and money. The need for instant heat explains itself: zero down time, no warm up time, no need for indirect heating elements, and with the right heater, no waste of space. These are what you get with Komax heaters, but the secondary effects of direct steam injection heating are just as important for the vivaciousness of production. They look like this:
-Less Vibration: Direct steam injection eliminates the noise and vibration that can lead to rattling pipes and water hammer. These inconveniences can quickly cause deterioration to connections within the system’s parts or can leave cracks in the walls or joints. The reduction of these annoyances leads to a much younger feeling system and also to more accurate measurements of temperature, consistency, and flow.
10:1 Turn Down: Komax direct steam heating allows for consistent accuracy with various flows of liquid. Whether at maximum or minimum flow, the heightened accuracy means there will be no waste from minimal volume requirements like in previous heaters. As with the Scepter Heater, this direct steam heater also mixes fluids completely as a favorable side effect of the heating process.
These heaters promote both environments with consistent output and also varying needs in liquid heating. Nothing will ever have to be heated and then wait around for use. With both Komax’s Scepter Heater and Inline Direct Steam Heater, not only will production thrive, but money will also be saved on the easy installation and low capital cost.
