SubCom®’s robust direct fired heaters have taken on the toughest operating conditions and set a new standard for direct-contact liquid heating solutions through our direct-contact heat exchangers and direct-contact heat transfer capabilities.
Low emissions burners, reduced maintenance costs, durable construction, and short payback periods that lead to unparalleled efficiency that can approach 100% make SubCom® direct fired heaters 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® direct fired heaters in a liquid heating application make it the best direct contact heating method for challenging liquids and slurry streams.
SubCom® direct fired heaters also excel in the heating of dense slurries. SubCom® is an intrinsically highly efficient heating technology with no fluid passages to plug with solids or heating surfaces to scale over. That efficiency is further optimized by the turbulent action of steam sparging or gas sparging, which keeps solids suspended in the liquid heat burner and increases the overall heat transfer rate making it very energy efficient.
The mining industry offers significant opportunities to demonstrate the power of liquid heating solutions offered by SubCom® direct fired heaters. This is due to the breadth of projects available.
