The steam generation as a source of energy takes place through the use of plate heat exchangers and the so-called steam heaters.
As it is well-known, water can be solid, liquid or gaseous. If we add thermal energy to the water, its temperature rises to the point of becoming steam. The evaporation of water requires large amounts of energy and as this occurs, both the water and the steam produced are always kept at the same temperature.
If what we want is to make steam becomes a source of energy, there are a number of heat exchangers specially designed to heat water using industrial steam.
Its main features are a unique design and the strength of the stainless steel plate, besides its plate heat exchanger gaskets that can withstand temperatures up to 180° C.
There are many industries that use steam heaters in their manufacturing processes. Among them stand out the chemistry and pharmaceutical industries.
