What is Purchased: Steam Generator Main Unit (The Patented Slimline Steam Generator), the Water Pump (O-Pump1) and the Temperature Read-out (TC-Read). Resting legs included. Manual included.
Requirements at the User Site: Please plan on a compressor for air or gas with flow valve (unless chosen from the option menu).
Electrical 110/120V electric supply. Water.
Note that the stand configuration is the unit with stand. A Back Option is also offered with a gripper.
- Back Pack with hand pump and End-affecter Weed Nozzle Extension. Note the standard O-Pump1 will always be included regardless of the purchase of the back-pack pump unit.
- Spray Nozzle with Pressure Dispenser
Superheated Steam/Air or Gas (Vapor) Mixture. High Humidity Device. Power 1 KW.
High temperature superheated mix of steam-air or steam-gas output. Superheated steam is an odorless high temperature gas (not to be confused with hot water mist). OPUMP-1 for metered water flow is a required option. Several options available and recommended.
Frequency: 50/60 HZ
Current: Approx. 9 Amps @ 110VAC
Power Consumption: ~1000 Watts
Potential uses: For drying, cleaning, layering, epoxy drying and other film uses where superheated steam is required at one atmospheric pressure. Ideal for steam drying or steam oxidation. Product has uses in surface technologies, cleaning technologies, drying technologies, curing technologies, nano technologies. Attempt use also for precipitating crystals of several small sizes including nano crystals from solutions. Precipitation droplet sizes may be controlled by controlling rate of cooling, impingement conditions and type of surface.
High Humidity Control: Steam temperature and the relative mass of moisture in steam-air mixture (specific humidity) depends on water valve setting and air inflow setting. This unique device can give more than 40% specific humidity at temperatures greater than 100C (compare with a specific humidity of less than 3% in fully saturated air at room temperature i.e. air with RH=100%).
Typical settings: This unit requires a compressed air source and a metered water pump like the O-Pump-1. Setting: (Full power of 1 kW): Air 1.45 CFM (inlet at ~30C) and water 330ml in 45 mins (inlet ~30C) yields steam-air temperature of about 350C. Air 1.4CFM (inlet at ~30C) and water 200ml in 20 mins (inlet ~30C) yields steam-air temperature of about 250C. Air 1.8CFM (inlet at ~30C) and water 200ml in 20 mins (inlet ~30C) yields steam-air temperature of about 150C. User is required to provide air flow device. The unit come with a manual which has comprehensive valve setting data (manual available only with purchase). These setting may vary with use and other conditions. The values above should be considered as approximate. Your results may vary with unit and the type of use.
Safety precautions must be taken when dealing with hot gasses. Please write or visit MHI website a free manuscript on superheated steam or refer to any standard book on steam thermodynamics.
Safety: PLEASE DO NOT USE UNIT WITH or OUTPUT WITH COMBUSTIBLE LIQUIDS.
DANGER OF SUPERHEATED STEAM that can cause serious burns SHOULD BE WELL UNDERSTOOD. PLEASE USE GLOVES, GLASSES AND HARD HAT. PROTECTIVE CLOTHING REQUIRED. STEAM CAN PENETRATE CLOTHES. Patents applied and pending.
Installation: Installation and use manual provided with product. Air flow generator (compressed air) is in user scope. Air compressor with 5 SCFM output is required at the user site.
Required Options: Control thermocouple read-out for the hot air generator part of the required options. The O-Pump1 is a required option.
Other Options that can be purchased are the Back Pack Water Container with calibrated hand pump. A nozzle extender for about 18″ may also be purchased. This is used for the weed or soil use as the output contains multiple holes.
Superheated Steam/Air or Gas Vapor Mixture. High Humidity Device. Power 1 KW.
Voltage 110V (50/60Hz)
Several Options are Offered like the BackPack Water Pump and Air Compressor. If the spray nozzle with dispenser option is chosen – please call Bayzi Corporation for details.
