SubCom®’s robust heat transfer capabilities have taken on the toughest operating conditions and set a new standard for direct contact liquid heating solutions.
Low emissions burners, reduced maintenance costs, durable construction and short payback periods that lead to unparalleled efficiency that can approach 100% make SubCom® an excellent choice for direct contact process liquid heating.
Submerged combustion will outperform other heating methods especially in dirty and corrosive conditions where direct contact heating greatly improves performance.
The benefits of SubCom® in a liquid heating application make it the best direct contact heating method for challenging liquids and slurry streams.
SubCom® also excels in the heating of dense slurries. With no fluid passages to plug with solids or heating surfaces to scale over, it is a heating technology that is intrinsically efficient. That efficiency is further optimized by the turbulent action of gas sparging, which keeps solids suspended in the liquid and increases overall heat transfer rate and efficiency.
The mining industry offers significant opportunities to demonstrate the power of SubCom® liquid heating solutions due to the breadth of projects available.
Key mining applications for SubCom® include:
