I've been trying to steam heavy cream but have not been very successful. It ends up creating a thick heavy foam at the top and not integrating very well circulating into the whole body of the liquid.

Any body have any success or tips with steaming heavy cream?

No, doesn't really work. 
You need the proteins, sugars, fats and just the right amount of water to properly steam milk. 
The variance of these across the range of milks is actually quite small. 
You can steam oat milk as it's essentially emulsified rape oil (yuk!) 
But not cream. 

Why are you trying out of curiosity?

Well, I've been doing Keto for the last couple years, and mostly have been doing iced americanos with a splash of heavy cream. But as the weather has started getting cooler this fall, I've really been wanting to make a good cappuccino. Heavy cream is great for keto, (almost no sugar and very low carbs).

I had a little bit of success where I mix the heavy cream with hot water first. Makes it slightly less issues of a heavy foam cap on top.

I suppose I'll just have to use trial and error to see if I can get something passable for a cappuccino micro foam.

Oh dear, thought keto might be the culprit. 
I hope you are checking your ApoB status! 

I'd do your body a massive favour and drop keto and have a decent flat white!
