Pick Steam Injection Heater Design/Operation

Our method of injection sets Pick apart from all other Direct Steam Heaters.


As steam enters, it acts against a spring-loaded piston to expose an orifice pattern.  Steam is dispersed through the precisely arranged orifices in many fine streams, promoting rapid mixing and heat transfer. Helical flights inside the chamber ensure complete and thorough mixing of steam and liquid.


As steam input varies, the piston modulates to adjust the number of exposed orifices providing rapid response to process changes.  This maintains motive force of the steam, thus eliminating harmful shock and vibration caused by steam hammer.


The Pick Heater also offers exceptional temperature control, wide operating range, low noise level, and compact design.
