Steam Lab Video


At CSI, we have built a steam lab to help us better understand the movement of steam through a jacketed heating system. The successful operation of any steam jacketing requires the free flow of steam throughout the entire system and the efficient removal of condensate from the system. If condensate is allowed to collect in the jacketing, or if it prevents the flow of steam to the jacketing, this will reduce the system’s thermal performance and could result in processing issues. The following 3-minute movie was filmed in our steam lab and shows steam and condensate flow through a jacketed heating system. The movie contains audio to describe the system setup, so remember to turn on your speakers.
