Direct steam injection into cooling water line at pump suction

Question

Currently there is an operation scenario at one of our plant which directly injecting steam into cooling water line at pump suction in order to generate hot water at 60 deg C for circulation, by doing this its generate vapor at pump suction and lead to cavitation which ultimately damage pump and mechanical seals. Please advise better solution to this rather than installing a heat exchanger.
