heaterSteam process is the ideal solution for applications in which reliability and operating flexibility are needed when feedwater characteristics not always under control.
- Flexibility: works regardless of feedwater characteristics.
- Modularity: heaterSteam process can control up to 19 units in parallel via a proportional signal.
- Simplified maintenance: the thermal shock cycles remove any scale build-up on the heaters.
heaterSteam process completes the range of heater humidifiers, offering a modular and versatile solution.
heaterSteam process is the ideal solution for applications in which reliability and operating flexibility are needed when feedwater characteristics not always under control or may vary over time, such as marine applications. In these cases, or even when the feedwater needs to be softened, immersed electrode humidification is usually problematic, if not impossible.
In general, with heater technology, the quality of steam production can be affected by the generation of foam due to the use of softened water. Water that is very rich in minerals, on the other hand, increases maintenance requirements. heaterSteam process, however, fears no type of water: the heaters used in heaterSteam process are made from Incoloy® 825, a highly resistant and versatile superalloy developed to work in variable feedwater conditions. Protection against overheating guarantees safety and reliability in all situations, while the thermal shock function periodically detaches any scale from the heaters, diminishing the frequency and complexity of maintenance operations.
The versatility of heaterSteam process is also reflected in its modularity. The Master/Slave “mirror” function in fact allows up to 19 units to be controlled in parallel using a proportional signal, thus extending the capacity of the humidification system to 2-1600 kg/h without any complications whatsoever.
