Insulated steam dispersion tubes are a dual breakthrough

DRI-STEEM® announces a new humidification system option -- insulated tubes for Ultra-sorb® and Rapid-sorb® steam dispersion systems. They provide significant energy savings for either new or existing applications: Wasted energy is reduced by up to 85%, and airstream heat gain and dispersion-generated condensate production are also significantly lowered.
"Insulated steam dispersion tubes are a dual breakthrough," explains DRI-STEEM President Jim Van't Land. "They will provide a major energy- and cost-saving option not only for new steam dispersion systems as we move forward, but also as a retrofit for installed systems."
The energy savings from DRI-STEEM's insulated dispersion tubes can provide product payback in less than one year for electric humidification systems and in about 1.5 years for natural gas humidification systems. These substantial cost-saving improvements are achieved by reducing the thermal conductivity of dispersion tubes with polyvinylidene fluoride (PVDF), an advanced insulation that meets stringent duct/AHU requirements. This robust insulating material has a fire/smoke index of 0/0, and is rated for continuous high-temperature (300 °F) operation.
The PVDF insulating material will not absorb water or support microbial growth, due to its closed-cell construction, and it will not degrade when exposed to UVC germicidal light. Advanced manufacturing processes ensure that the insulation is secured firmly to the dispersion tubes and will not loosen or shift.
