Steam Superheating

Superheated steam is produced by the addition of heat to saturated steam, and it possesses properties that approximate those of a gas rather than a vapor.

Its value typically lies in the tremendous internal energy that can be used for propulsion/drive applications, such as turbines, while remaining above the condensation temperature of water vapor. Superheating ensures that the steam flow through a turbine or engine always remains a compressible gas that will not condense.

Sigma Thermal offers several types of systems that can provide steam superheat.  Direct heating options include Convection heaters, Radiant-Convective heaters, and Electric Circulation heaters.  Indirect heating options include hot oil and salt bath systems.  Whatever your use for superheated steam may be, Sigma Thermal can help you design a solution that best fits you process needs.
