Kadant Canada Corp. now offers a direct steam injection water heater product line. Direct steam injection water heaters, also referred to as direct injection heaters, are used to rapidly and accurately heat water and water-based slurries by injecting steam directly into the fluid.

Direct injection heaters can be used in boiler feedwater preheating, fibrous slurries such as pulp stock and biomass pretreatment, paper starch processing, sanitization and tank cleaning, and anaerobic treatment of organic waste, among other applications.

Direct injection heating uses all the sensible and latent heat of steam to heat the fluid. It can provide equal heating to that of an indirect heat exchanger process with 20% to 30% less energy. The improved energy efficiency results in less steam consumption with no reduction in output.
