Steam heating systems are a bit of a mystery for many engineers and contractors. Much of the “old school” knowledge on steam heat exchangers retired years ago. With the limited number of new steam systems being installed today, this subject is rarely covered with any detail. Most healthcare facilities and some industrial facilities use ...Read More
Proper operation of steam humidifiers includes proper handling of the condensate that is created while heating the metal surfaces. This week, we’ll provide some tips for handling humidifier condensate when...Read More
Last week, we reviewed different types of steam humidifier distribution methods, which are inexpensive but have longer absorption distances. Many HVAC installations require very short or non-wetting absorption distances. Humidifier distribution panels provide solutions to this requirement. This week we'll review the options for...
A few weeks ago we reviewed the types of steam humidifiers normally supplied in building HVAC systems. But creating the steam is simply the first step; we also have provide equipment to disperse the steam into the air. This post reviews some of the dispersion methods used in buildings with...Read More
The best way to make sure you have designed your humidification system to have sufficient absorption distance is to use sizing and selection software. By entering in a few values, including the entering and leaving air conditions, you not only get equipment options, but also...Read More
