New Condensing Gas-Fired Humidifier From DriSteem Combines High Efficiency and Ultra-Low NOx in One Unit

DriSteem GTS humidifier LX series

DRI-STEEM Corporation (DriSteem), a leading manufacturer of humidification, evaporative cooling, and water treatment products, introduces a new gas-fired humidifier that combines the highest efficiency on the market with ultra-low NOx in a single unit.

The new GTS® humidifier LX series* is the most recent addition to DriSteem’s market-leading GTS gas-fired humidifiers. Steam capacities from 50 to 150 pounds per hour give the LX series the flexibility to tackle almost any application. The LX series offers: 

  • Condensing design provides for highest efficiency and PVC venting: Saves money on energy costs with greater than 90% efficiency.
  • Ultra-low NOx for a clean environment and to meet increasingly stringent regulations: Ultra-low nitrogen oxide emissions of under 20 ppm conform to SCAQMD (South Coast Air Quality Management District) 1146.2 air quality management standards for gas-fired humidifiers.
  •  Reduced installation costs: The LX series patent-pending condensing technology ensures that the flue temperature stays under 140 °F, allowing for the use of PVC, CPVC, or polypropylene flue piping which is less expensive, easier to work with than stainless steel, and can be vented through sidewalls, saving on installation costs.  
  • 5:1 turndown ratio for accurate humidity control: The LX series has a 5:1 turndown ratio for accurate humidity control through a wide range of load conditions, providing consistent output from low to maximum demand. ​
  • Sensing technology that adjusts drain intervals automatically, in addition to accurately measuring water tank level: The LX series humidifiers’ electronic water level control accurately manages tank filling and draining with all water types from tap to deionized. This universal water control means that there is no need to change configurations based on water type when ordering equipment or retrofitting to fit new water sources in the field. ​
  • Space-saving design for ease of installation and placement flexibility: All LX series humidifiers feature a small footprint for easy installation in crowded mechanical rooms, with a wall mounting option for 50 and 75 lbs/hr models for even more placement flexibility. For installing outdoors, there is a climate-controlled outdoor enclosure option available.

“The new LX series offers a next generation breakthrough for energy savings, installation flexibility, and environmental protection,” comments Phil Lilja, DriSteem Product Manager.

DriSteem’s GTS humidifiers are the industry’s first and best-selling gas-to-steam humidifiers, with over 22 years of proven performance. The LX series will be available for order beginning January 29, 2018. To learn more and to find the DriSteem sales representative nearest you, visit or call 952-949-2415.
