Eden Prairie, MN, June 13, 2017 (Newswire.com) - DRI-STEEM Corporation (DriSteem), the leading manufacturer of humidification, evaporative cooling, and water treatment products, is proud to announce that BUILDINGS magazine has named its Ultra-sorb® Model XV steam dispersion panel as a 2017 Money-Saving Product Award winner.
Designed specifically to deliver significant water and energy savings, DriSteem’s Ultra-sorb XV steam dispersion panel boasts four features that contribute to savings in resource and operating costs:
1. Reduce wasted energy and condensate up to 85%
The high-efficiency insulated steam dispersion tubes of the Ultra-sorb XV panel substantially reduce airstream heat gain and condensate production in pressurized steam applications.
2. Higher capacities per tube increase efficiency, reduce cost
Since the insulated dispersion tubes of the Ultra-sorb XV panel produce less condensate, they have more steam available for humidification, increasing the capacity of each tube so fewer tubes may be needed to meet application requirements, further lowering condensate production and heat gain while reducing resource consumption and cost.
3. Zero water waste
The Ultra-sorb XV panel vaporizes dispersion-generated condensate and returns pressurized condensate to the boiler without additional pumps, valves, vents, or controls. These dispersion panels are designed with integral heat exchangers to save additional energy while eliminating water waste and the need for P-traps and condensate pumps in pressurized steam applications. All condensate and its heat energy returns to the boiler while still hot, saving energy, water, and boiler chemicals.
4. Lowest installation cost
Ultra-sorb XV panels ship preassembled and install quickly with easy mounting, steam, and condensate connection. There is no need for a condensate drain or installation of related drain piping. Ultra-sorb XV panels are built to order in 1” increments, permitting a perfect fit to air handling unit or duct dimensions. The low-height steam header maximizes available humidification face dimensions and minimizes duct blank-off requirements, reducing duct pressure losses.
“We are thrilled that the Ultra-sorb XV was selected for the 2017 BUILDINGS Money-Saving Product Award. DriSteem’s Ultra-sorb steam dispersion panels have been trusted for their quality in the industry for 25 years,” said Phil Lilja, DriSteem Product Manager. “We are especially proud of the Ultra-sorb XV with its ability to reduce the consumption of energy and water, and provide significant cost savings for any application.”
Finalists were evaluated by the BUILDINGS editorial staff for the money-saving qualities they offer to building owners and facility managers in areas such as energy consumption, water savings, lighting, security, roofing, and maintenance. DriSteem’s Ultra-sorb XV is showcased in the magazine’s June 2017 issue, as part of an elite group of money-saving products.
