Government agencies like the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) and Food and Drug Administration (FDA) require food, beverage, and pharmaceutical processing companies to incorporate sanitation and environmental controls into their workflows. When the manufacturing of a product calls for aseptic measures, all the process records are audited for compliance with regulations before releasing the product to the market. As such, it is crucial that all sanitation activities are rigorously followed every day.
Importance of Stainless Steel Steam Generators
Steam is widely used as a sterilization agent—but not all steam is equally pure. Steam of different purity levels is required for different applications. There are common categories for industrial steam:
- Clean steam. The feed water for clean steam must not be treated with water treatment chemicals. Clean steam is used for humidification and sterilization.
- Sterilization steam. DIN 58950-7 (the standard for steam sterilizers for pharmaceutical products) calls for another category of steam for use in sterilizing parenteral drugs in closed containers. The high limit of the conductivity of this steam is 10µm/cm, which is above the limit for WFI. This steam is also utilized in the sterilization of goods that are not in direct contact with the pharmaceutical product.
Stainless steel steam generators are ideal for producing clean steam and sterilization steam.
Stainless Steel Clean Steam Generators from Electro-Steam
Electro-Steam Generator Corp (Electro-Steam) manufactures clean steam generators for use by the pharmaceutical industry. These generators are also suitable for use by biotechnical labs and factories. They are widely used for the humidification, heating, and sterilization of the equipment, products, and utensils used by these industries.
The models of steam generators available from Electro-Steam include:
- LG Models – 10, 15, 20, 25, 30 and 40 kW.
- LB Models – 40, 50, 60, 80, 100, 120, 150, 180, and 240-480 kW
- SS LG Models – 10-40 kW
- SS LB Models – 40-60, 80, and 100-240 kW
The LG series models are benchtop, low-pressure units, while the LB units are more powerful than LG. Electro-Steam can also fabricate custom units for unique application specifications. All of the above units are highly efficient and are fabricated with high quality 316L stainless steel on all wetted surfaces.
While some units can provide more than 100 psi, most of them provide pressures from 0–100 psi. Most of these steam generators are also available as indirect steam to clean steam models in facilities that already have utility steam. The power ratings for these models range from 30kW to 240kW.
All our steam generators come with:
- Adjustable pressure controls
- Automatic low water cutoff protection
- Automatic operation
- Safety valves
Standalone models come in stainless steel cabinets and integral models are available with stainless steel electrical enclosures.
Steam Generators From Electro-Steam
Electro-Steam has been manufacturing electric steam generators since 1952. We make high-quality stainless steel steam generators that are easy to install, operate, and maintain. Our units will provide many years of reliable service if properly maintained. With the exception of our hawk series, all of our steam generators are built by an ASME Certificate holder in accordance with ASME BPVC Section I – Rules for Construction of Power Boilers (“ASME BPVC Section I”). They also comply with the requirements outlined in The National Board Synopsis of Boiler and Pressure Vessel Laws, Rules and Regulations (NB-370) RULES FOR CONSTRUCTION AND STAMPING section, which for many jurisdictions include but are not limited to ASME BPVC Section I, ASME CSD-1, ASME B31.1, and REGISTRATION WITH THE NATIONAL BOARD.
Thousands of our units are in use by customers around the world. This is ample testament to our high-quality products and standard of excellence. Our units are competitively priced with a one-year standard warranty, with options available for extending the warranty period.
