Steam heaters are been found to be more efficient than heat exchangers.

Benefits of Steam Heaters
Steam heaters have a number of benefits in the industrial setting. First and foremost, steam heaters are safer a heating loop.
There are no risks of leakages in the steam heater. This also makes them more reliable and provides them with a better longevity than boilers or heat exchangers. The better the quality of the steam heater, the longer it will last without complaints.
Steam heaters are easier to maintain because there is no fan and not many moving parts. Steam heaters are also quieter than water heaters, reducing disturbance when the machine functioning. Steam being lighter than fluid, transportation time is shorter, and the pressure is also low.
Steam heaters require no pumping, unlike fluids. Steam naturally rises, and when it condenses it creates a low pressure filled by more steam.
That’s not all. Steam heaters being smaller than water heaters, the cost of installation and maintenance is far less than that of water heaters. Even smaller manufacturing on a tight budget can also install a steam heater.
