What is?

For baths and saunas presence of steam - this is a basic requirement.

After all, he carries out a range of functions for which we love to visit the steam room:

  • It removes from the body of dirt invisible to the human eye. No wonder that the steam generators are also widely used to clean clothing and automotive interiors, window washing windows and cleaning of premises. This is a great way to achieve the ideal of purity without the use of chemicals;
Pairs perfectly demonstrates its cleaning capabilities, not only in the bath

  • Removes from the body of accumulated labor urban everyday toxins and wastes. And believe me, there is something to be eliminated in modern lifestyles;
  • Healthier skin and hair;

To enhance the healing effect it is recommended to choose a model with an additional compartment, which you can add essential oils. This greatly enhance the health effects of steam, as well as give it a nice smell.

The essential oils increase the healing effect of steam

  • Beneficial effects on the respiratory system.

Previously, in order to fill the bath saturated with light steam, having all of these effects, on a mandatory basis was constructed furnace heater.

This complex designs requiring:

  • Bookmarks individual foundation;
  • Perform complex masonry works;
The construction of the brick stove - not an easy task

The construction of the brick stove - not an easy task

  • Arrangement effective chimney;
  • Compliance with the masses of fire safety rules.

Now it will be enough to establish a small, aesthetically pleasing and easy to handle electric a steam generator, whose task is exclusively in the transformation of water into steam for baths or Russian Turkish hammam. This is accomplished by one of three methods:

Methods for converting water into steam with electricity

  1. electrode. electrons travel from one electrode to another through the liquid greatly raises its temperature up to the vaporization;

  1. Due to the work of heaters. In this case, heating is carried out by means of special heating elements, similar to those installed in the heater;
Heating elements are also able to easily establish the required amount of steam in the presence of a sufficient volume of water

  1. Induction. Here the translation of water in the vapor state is on the same principle that microwave ovens operate.

Any of the options to create a pair of suitable consistency for the Turkish bath and Russian steam.

The basic elements of the steam generator

Each steam generator for bath has:

  • Water tank. Here it served "raw materials" to create the necessary vapor;
  • The block in which the liquid preparation;
  • PumpPerforming water movement;
  • PumpCarrying out movement of the pair;
  • steam generation apparatus;
  • Management system unit;
  • sensors monitorResponsible for the safe operation of the unit.

Advantages and disadvantages

Why does the steam generator should be placed in the bath? To this every man for himself can find the answer among the impressive list of advantages of this solution:

dignity

  1. Automating the process of vaporization. Forget about pre-kindling, firewood and timely toss of pouring water on hot stones. Enough to include the reporting unit that can be done in many models, even from a distance using a remote control. You also have the right to set the timer system on and off, so that it becomes operational and at all a pleasure;

  1. Guaranteed DC continuous evaporation process without jumps in temperature and humidity changes unauthorized. In this case, your intervention in the operation of the equipment is not required, so feel free to enjoy a visit to the steam room that is focused on its service;
The steam coming from the steam generator, is constant in their physical properties

  1. The relatively low capacityWhich varies in different models from 3 up to 12 kW. As a result, we can say that the use of such equipment is cheaper solid-fuel furnaces;
  2. Simple instructions for installation work. A little tricky with the connection still have to, but it's no match does not go with the time consuming process of the construction of a full stove. In fact, it is no longer necessary, bring enough to the steam room or latent heating put in it an electrical heating device;
  3. Compact and stylish appearance. Not only that, a lot of places do not need to allocate a steam generator, which is very important for small banek, so you still use it to decorate a room;

disadvantages

But without the drawbacks, of course, too, was not, and they also need to consider if you wish to arrange their own bath, electric steam generator:

  1. High enough for the domestic sphere price. Of course, if you, for example, keep an extra charge sauna, then buying whacks fairly quickly. But now for the private use of such acquisition may be made each;
In the public hammam steam generator will pay for itself very quickly

  1. The dependence on power supply. In particular, this can feel the owners of houses located far outside the city limits. In such places, unfortunately, power line failure is not uncommon. As a result, once arrived to warm up now, you can be without a pair, both with and without light, due to the recent storms and broken wires.

subtleties choice

What to look for when choosing a suitable steam generator? First and foremost on the power.

There is nothing complicated, just keep in mind the amount of space that the device will need to serve:

For each room fits a steam generator

For each room fits a steam generator

  • For small volume of parylene to six cubic meters will be sufficient aggregate capacity of only 4-5 kW;
  • If the steam room reaches in sizes 10-12 cubic meters, then there is need device for 8-10 kW;
  • Spacious same room volume in excess of eighteen cubic meters, then you need to buy a device with capacity of 12 kW.

Also, more may be different connection method to water:

  • Autonomous. Here you can manually topped up with the amount of water in the tank;
  • Auto. In this case, the steam generator receives fluid directly from the water system without your participation.

Despite the fact that the automatic models at first glance seem to be preferable, if you carried water from a municipal system, I recommend still opt for an autonomous vehicle. In the opposite case highly probable frequent and costly equipment damage due to the presence of large amounts of various impurities and chlorine used in the water to generate steam.

Making your own hands

The steam generator for a bath with his hands can also be made, although it is not so easy.

If you are willing to spend a sufficient amount of time and effort, then here is the course required to perform work:

  1. we find empty propane tank the desired volume;
EXAMPLE propane cylinder

EXAMPLE propane cylinder

  1. We produce from it gas residues and carefully remove the brass valve;
  2. the inside of carefully washed out a dish detergent up until the smell of burning does not disappear completely;
Selection of detergent will not cause difficulties

Selection of detergent will not cause difficulties

  1. Give the capacity to fully dry naturally;
  2. The lower part of the cylinder we equip TANS of calculation, that for every 10 liters of water required power of 3 kW. Thus their roof fixing system must be able to withstand pressures of up to six atmospheres removal rate and be able to replace in case of the fused cells;
EXAMPLE heating element for heating water

EXAMPLE heating element for heating water

  1. The upper portion assemble four tubes with special thread for installation automation, as well as the pressure relief valves and filling liquid;
  2. On the side wall, departing 100 mm from the top, set the ball valve. This is an excellent indicator of the presence of the required amount of water in the tank. Suffice it to open it before filling and wait from it nachot flow;
  3. Brass valve previously removed, cut in two parts, the upper rod is removed and drill holes pyatnadtsatimillimetrovye, which is then cut into thread;
  4. Screw ball valveBy which hereinafter will be pair selection;
  5. install arrow gauges to control the pressure and temperature;
EXAMPLE dial gauge

EXAMPLE dial gauge

  1. Ready The device is installed in a dry steam room adjacent to the room.

The length of the steam pipe recommend making the minimum. This will reduce the number of drop-down condensate.
