AmeriVap Systems, an industry pioneer in industrial dry steam generators, has pushed the envelope even further with the introduction of its BlūSteam unit. The unit, so-called because the steam is actually blue at the tip, reaches temperatures up to 500 degrees internally, and approximately 320 degrees at the point of contact.
The BlūSteam unit was developed over the past few years in response to customers who needed extra high heat and the lowest possible moisture for critical cleaning applications. Normal AmeriVap Xtreme Steam units are already robust, delivering 365 degrees internal boiler temperature, and 220 degrees at the point of contact. The new BlūSteam units reach 500 degrees internally and approximately 320 degrees at the point of contact.. With these extreme temperatures, the AmeriVap steam generators come with specially designed hoses to contain the heat.
Applications for such dry heat vary from critical pharmaceutical and neutraceutical operations to the semi-conductor and aeronautic industries. For industries like food processing, it is typical to have a three prong effort to kill harmful pathogenic bacteria: chemicals, dwell time of the chemicals, and proper temperature. The BlūSteam turns this on its ear: chemicals are no longer needed, dwell time is cut to seconds, and temperature is, well, extreme. In fact, with pathogen death at 165 degrees, 100% bacterial kills are all but certain.
A second beneficial byproduct of all of this heat is extremely low moisture, approximately 1%. This dry hot steam is so pure it is actually clear blue at the tip, hence the name. This dry hot steam is capable of removing exceedingly stubborn residues like flux solder and other corrosion inhibiting compounds used in specialty metal processing and the semi-conductor industry. In addition the company is experimenting with corrosion inhibiting solutions to inject into the available chemical reservoirs (these are available on all Xtreme Steam models, but are rarely used as the heat precludes the need for any chemicals) for specialty part treating.
Available in 20kw-80kw units, the BlūSteam models are very versatile: the operator has full control of moisture and steam volume as well as the steam temperature. This enables the BlūSteam to tackle a variety of applications, using the wide assortment of available attachments.
