Pick Heaters for Energy and Power Industry

Steam Injection for the Energy & Power Industry

Pick Direct Steam Injection Heaters are a proven solution for many water heating applications in the Power Industry.

Pick Heaters exceptional temperature control (within 1°C) as compared to other direct or indirect heating methods can play a critical role in improving plant performance.


Pick’s compact size compared to indirect heat exchangers allows more flexibility in installation. Couple this with ease of maintenance and reliability and Pick Direct Steam Injection Heaters are clearly the water heating choice for the Energy & Power Industry.

Application Solutions include:


Boiler Feed Water

A Power Plant generates steam for a neighboring paper recycling mill. The plant required an instantaneous supply of hot water for varying demand, as condensate could not be returned from the mill.

Reverse Osmosis

A regional power plant installed two new Reverse Osmosis (R/O) systems to reduce the amount of conventional chemical treatment for boiler feed water. Direct Steam Injection improved the efficiency of the system, since cold water hampers the ability of water to pass through membranes.

Flue Gas Desulphurization

Environmental regulations require power plants to employ flue gas desulphurization (FGD) to control sulfur dioxide (SO2) emissions. A dependable hot water supply is required to maximize efficiency in the lime slaking process.

Regeneration of Resin Beds

Power generation plants use cation and anion resin bed exchangers to treat boiler feed water.

Desuperheating of Steam

The Pick Desuperheater provides a reliable method for reducing temperature of a super-heated steam supply.

Why Direct Steam Injection Liquid Heating is the Preferred Choice for Many Industrial Applications

Customers have many choices for heating water, liquids or slurries, but Direct Steam Injection (DSI) Heaters should be at the top of the list of options for these challenging applications.

Choosing the Right Pick Direct Steam Injection Heater for Your Needs

When choosing a Direct Steam Injection Heater, there are a few factors you need to consider, including the type of liquid being heated, how much the liquid flow varies during operation or if you have a unique size or material requirements. Once you have considered these factors, you can start to narrow down your choices.

Benefit of Precise and Accurate Temperature Control with Steam Injection Heaters

Direct Steam Injection (DSI) Heaters are systems that inject steam directly into a liquid or slurry to heat it up to a desired temperature. DSI heaters offer many advantages over other heating methods of heat exchange, but one of the most important benefits is their precise and accurate temperature control.

Facing the Limits of Indirect Heat Exchange (Part 1)

The challenges of heating fluids and providing a steady hot water supply are important to a wide range of industry types, and there are many solutions that engineers employ to meet those challenges. Not all solutions are equal, however; following a selection path designed to save up-front costs may not always be the best strategy. There are numerous factors to consider, including ones that may be less obvious.

Finding the Solution of Direct Steam Injection (Part 2)

The limits to indirect heat exchange examined in Part 1 become more significant as greater temperature or pressure is required for heat and hot water applications. In many cases, the solution for design engineers is to opt instead for direct steam injection (DSI).
