Steam Distributing Coils
Steam distributing coils from Super Radiator Coils are specially designed to minimize the potential freeze-up of steam condensate when the coil is used with extremely cold fresh air, typically below 32°F.
The basic design of steam distributing coils features an inner tube inserted down the entire length of the outer tube. The steam is fed through the inner tube and into the space between the inner and outer tube, either at the end of the tube or through perforations, and then condenses. The outer tube is plugged or capped so that the condensate remains under pressure and is distributed to the return header.
Steam distributing coils are designed to feed live steam across the entire coil face providing even heat distribution and to minimize freeze risks. The design typically involves a pitched core/casing design to encourage the flow of the condensate back to the drain line.
Our steam distributing coils are used in several industries, including food storage & processing, military, HVAC, and power generation.
