Direct-injection steam heater causes a low pressure drop in existing flow. This means no extra input is needed to progress the system except steam. These benefits help pulp-and-paper mills achieve energy efficiency and pursue lean manufacturing goals, says one maker of direct-injection steam heaters. The compact heaters incorporate a smoothly flowing steam path that encourages the use of momentum in steam injection. The design helps the steam input retain momentum, and this conservation of energy is passed onto the product flow. Heater can be supplied with an equalizer mixing module. It contains six parallel mixing chambers where pulp stock and steam are contacted and mixed.
