MAXITHERM manufactures steam to hot water applications using a vertical flooded steam heat exchanger design.
Benefits of an an instantaneous steam to hot water heaters using a vertical flooded heat exchanger:
Two key factors have led to the growth of instantaneous steam hot water heater popularity. First, they are much smaller than conventional storage tank heaters. Secondly, testing and research has shown that the smaller reservoir and higher temperatures do not create a breeding ground for Legionella bacteria.
Size is the most frequent consideration. Floor space is at a premium in modern mechanical rooms. The difference in footprint between a 16 square foot instantaneous skid and a 2000 gallon storage tank can be worth thousands of dollars.
