The heaterSteam range: steam distribution
The CAREL heaterSteam is an important step beyond the current resistance humidifiers available on the market and is the first humidifier in the world with IoT (Internet of Things).
The heaterSteam can be used for humidification in a duct with stainless steel steam lances or directly in a room by using the CAREL steam exhaust hood. In the most critical applications for maximum performance, the ultimateSAM is the ideal partner for the heaterSteam. The steam distribution system with high efficiency: this guarantees a very short recording distance of just a few centimeters, while at the same time, condensation is prevented as much as possible. By using the special steam nozzles for wall mounting, steam can be blown into steam baths.

heaterSteam process can operate in conditions in which feedwater quality is not controlled or varies over time.
Using the “mirror” function, humidification system capacity can be expanded up to 1600 kg/h without complications.
- Simplified maintenance
Thermal shock removes any scale residues from the heating elements, thus reducing maintenance requirements.
- Reliability and performance
Rotation and redundancy guarantee service continuity even during maintenance. Accuracy of ±1% RH around the set point across a range of continuous modulation from 0 to 100%.
The Modbus® and BACnet™ protocols, available as standard without requiring additional optional cards, ensure seamless integration of heaterSteam into any system.
- Elements protected against overheating (unique in the market).
- Independent of water quality.
- High degree of accuracy.
- The heaterSteam can control up to 19 units in parallel (capacity can be extended to 1,600 kg/h).

Electric heater humidification
Reliable and precise technology for high-tech applications. Steam production is modulated with the highest precision, using any feedwater.
The features of steam humidification make this technique the preferred solution in applications where the priority is hygiene, such as research laboratories or the agriculture and food industry: steam is in fact completely aseptic and does not carry solid particles, an intrinsic quality that is assured without needing to treat the feedwater.
Nonetheless, the operation of some types of isothermal humidification technology, such as immersed electrodes, is affected considerably by feedwater quality: in applications where feedwater properties are constant over time or softened water needs to be used, immersed electrode humidification is quite complex, if not impossible.
In addition to these limits, which for example prevent the use of demineralised water (useful to drastically reduce maintenance requirements), there are also technological limits in terms of the obtainable relative humidity control precision.
The heaterSteam range
heaterSteam has been completely upgraded from all points of view, with unique hardware and software functions. It is available in two versions: process and titanium.
A modular and flexible solution that represents the basis of the electric heater humidifier range.
Versatile and reliable
The ideal solution for applications requiring both reliability and operating flexibility.The Incoloy® 825 heating elements allow operation in complex conditions, even when feedwater quality is not controlled.Integrated protection against overheating (unique on the market) and the patented Anti-Foaming System are guarantees of application reliability. The modulating limit probe prevents condensate formation without abrupt interruptions in steam production.
heaterSteam titanium, the world’s only humidifier with titanium heaters, represents the pinnacle of this family of cutting-edge humidifiers.
Mission critical DNA
The reliability of titanium, combined with protection against overheating (unique on the market), makes heaterSteam titanium the natural solution for applications in which service continuity is crucial.In particular, the unit can operate on any type of treated water, even extremely aggressive water with a conductivity below 1 μS/cm and softened down to 0° fH: the titanium heating elements are completely resistant to corrosion.
Such ultra-pure water is often used in the pharmaceutical industry, and its characteristics mean it may be aggressive to the materials that are normally to construct humidifiers.In addition, the exclusive master/slave “Endurance” function manages redundancy and rotation, guaranteeing service continuity even during maintenance
CAREL c.pHC controller
The heaterSteam c.pHC electronic controller has been designed and developed by CAREL to ensure simple set-up and commissioning and exceptional performance.The two versions of heaterSteam, while being focused on different applications, share some important basic functions, such as:
- Start-up wizard
- AFS (Anti-Foaming System)
- Modulating limit probe
- Thermal shock
- Supervision (Modbus, BACnet)
- Cloud based monitoring
