The new insulated steam dispersion tubes, offered as a humidification system option, reduce wasted energy by up to 85 percent while significantly reducing airstream heat gain and dispersion-generated condensate production, states the company. These improvements are achieved by reducing the thermal conductivity of dispersion tubes with polyvinylidene fluoride (PVDF), a robust insulating material approved for plenum use (with a fire/smoke index of 0/0) and rated for continuous high-temperature (300°F) operation. The PVDF insulating material has a closed-cell construction; it will not degrade when exposed to UVC germicidal light. The PVDF-insulated tubes are available as an option for new and existing Ultra-sorb® and Rapid-sorb® steam dispersion systems.
