Humidity Solutions has introduced the Neptronic X-Stream steam distributor, capable of reducing energy wastage in steam humidifiers serving HVAC systems by as much as 85%, with a typical return on investment within 15 months.
Th X-Stream is compatible with resistive, gas-fired, steam-to-steam and direct steam injection humidifiers. Its energy saving capabilities played a key role in the Neptronic SKD direct steam injection humidifier winning the Innovation Award at AHR Expo 2014.
The innovative X-Stream design incorporates steam ejector eyelets that supply steam perpendicular to the air flow to deliver shorter evaporation distanced. The eyelets also feature an internal slope that returns condensate to the steam dispersion channel. The result is that steam supply consumption and wasted condensate are both reduced significantly. In addition to the energy savings, lifecycle costs are further reduced by zero maintenance requirements during the life of the X-Stream.
The internal design prevents contact between insulation and saturated steam, while the header design ensures that steam is distributed equally to all steam dispersion channels. The dispersion channels can be factory fitted or assembled on site.
