Pure steam distribution
The pure steam distribution must be designed so that the least quantity of condensates enters the equipment to be sterilised. Components in contact with clean steam must be of the same characteristics in respect of materials and surface finish as the water distribution loops. This distribution must be well insulated to minimise heat losses and the production of condensate, and also to achieve energy savings in the system.
The main items of the clean steam network are:
- Fittings (Elbows, Tees…)
- Point of use Valves
- Steam Traps
