A new ‘intelligent’ professional steam generator for use with public facility steam rooms has been launched by Tylö.
Integrated with the company’s latest ‘h1’ user-friendly touch-screen control panel, the easy-to-service wall mounted ‘Tylö PRO’ steam generator has a ‘quick steam’ function that leaves the unit on standby to provide instant steam on demand, thereby saving energy and helping to reduce the unit’s output during low-level use periods.
The generator measures the water quality and automatically empties flushes and refills the tank if the water quality deteriorates, without any noticeable effect on performance.
At the same time Tylö has overcome the need for the generator to be descaled at regular intervals. By increasing the outlet on the motor-driven drain valve (Ø 1¼”), lime scale is flushed out with the rinse water instead of accumulating inside the water tank. As a result, there is no need to use descaling products.
The unit’s ‘maintenance-friendly design’ means servicing is simple, with the steam generator, water tank and tubular heating elements all swinging out from behind a removable service hatch. In addition the stainless steel water tank can be taken apart to service the tubular elements and visually inspect the tank itself.
Touch control operation
By using the ‘h1’ touch control facility operators can pre-set the maximum temperature and lighting level within a steam room. The panel also shows the real-time temperature and in-operation time mode.
Operators can set the generator’s running time for up to 23 hours and pre-set ‘start’ and ‘stop’ within a 24-hour period. The ‘h1’ is available in multiple languages and has a range of other advanced settings and testing programs. It also allows operators to manually control the steam and carry out basic trouble shooting to monitor the status of the generator.
The ‘Tylö PRO’ generators, which are available in 230 and 400 voltage versions with either a 9 kW or 12 kW output, are fitted with an automatic safety valve that limits the temperature to avoid overheating.
