What is Superheated Steam?

Superheated steam is an extremely high-temperature vapor generated by heating the saturated steam obtained by boiling water.

Superheated steam is now drawing attention in the food, medical, and other industries where cleaning, disinfection, and drying play a crucial role. Superheated steam has the following specific advantages compared to saturated steam or hot air.

Four Advantages of Superheated Steam

High Temperature at Normal Pressure

Steam can be superheated without applying high pressure. Therefore, piping can be simple and high temperatures can be achieved regardless of the pressure vessel or boiler specifications.

Extremely High Thermal Conductivity

Compared to heated air, superheated steam has a high thermal capacity per unit volume, offering extremely high thermal conductivity.

Highly Efficient Drying Capability

Compared to hot air, superheated steam has much more powerful drying capability as it is vapor with high thermal conductivity.

Low Oxygen Conditions

Superheated steam is the gaseous state of water with low oxygen conditions. This prevents oxidation of heated items and lowers the possibility of fires or explosions.
