Q-Jet™ Direct Steam Injection Process Heaters

When the success of your operation relies on the ability to bring process fluids up to temperature instantaneously, a heater that offers tight control, quick startup, and low maintenance is an important decision.

ProFlow’s Q-Jet™ Direct Steam Injection (DSI) Process Heaters immediately bring your process up to temperature using our unique micro-jet array. This array features multiple controlled nozzles, which introduce steam into the process liquid. Faster and more controlled, this method transfers heat energy over a much larger surface area than can a single-jet method. Steam disperses more thoroughly with Q-Jet than with single-jet, uncontrolled heaters, allowing it to thoroughly condense, which significantly reduces the destructive vibration of steam hammer.


Q-Jet DSI Process Heater Features

  • It is the most energy efficient way to transfer BTUs from high pressure steam into any compatible process flow stream. Direct Steam Injection ensures that 100% of the BTUs are absorbed.
  • It provides accurate, dependable temperature control with today’s PID Controllers.  Each Q-Jet Direct Steam Injection Process Heater is accurately sized for the particular process heating application, taking into consideration the steam supply, temperature rise required, and the process flow through rate.
  • It occupies less plant space & uses less auxiliary equipment than any other heat exchanger.

Q-Jet DSI Process Heater Benefits

  • Rapid controlled steam condensation which prevents steam hammer
  • Precise temperature control across high flow through spans
  • Adaptable to any process piping configuration
  • Little or no pressure drop through the heater
  • More compact size – requires less installed space
  • Lowest maintenance of any heating method
