Pick Model 6X7-3 Constant Flow Heater. After the Pick Heater was installed it was determined that the process could be operated at a much lower temperature. Direct Steam Injection and the Pick “flow-through” design eliminated the gumming problem.
The Pick Heater consumes about 10% less steam than the plate exchanger, saving the customer fuel and steam. The heater also features an electronic steam valve actuator and temperature controller because no compressed air was available in that area of the plant.
