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.

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.

Improve Jacketed Heating Systems with Direct Steam Injection

Steam still has an important role to play in jacketed heating, but a Direct Steam Injection (DSI) Heater provides the most precise and energy-efficient method for heating the jacket water to the desired temperature.

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).
