Typical model numbers are shown below. If a pressure rating is not required please inquire about MHGA models.
MHI provides UL/CE-rated controllers.
A pressure vessel third-party rating is offered (e.g. Section V111. Div. 1). Electric Panel Ratings UL, cUL, and CE.
The minimum temperature is 200°C. Pressure and flow rate are independent settings. ASME PV ratings are provided when requested. The control panel can be CE or UL or with cUL ratings. Flow rate can be varied from about 30% to the full amount of the specific model.
For fine-tuning pilot process development for quick scale up to production.

Typical and frequently asked questions:
Q: I need a variable steam rate generator at a maximum temperature of 400°C to 800°C. Can I use your steam generator GHGA models? Ans: Yes, the GHGA models are the correct choice for variable flow and variable temperature requests. The price will also depend on the pressure vessel rating and range of variable (adjustable) steam flow. Typically we are asked for 3-6 Kg variable or 4-12 Kg variable steam at the high temperature with unit-adjustable backpressure.
Q: Can you provide a shell of 40 Bar. Ans: Yes we can provide ASME Section V111, Div 1 standards with external rating.
Q: Can I get a touch screen HMI control panel. A: Yes, of course, this is our standard on some models.
Q: I have a 49 KW boiler, can I use your steam generator instead? Ans: Yes: The closest fit is the GHGA-36-(PV) or the OAb-50. Unlike boilers, the steam generator units can be on-off at will. No idling required. The temperature output of the steam will be between 150C and 800C depending on the model, flow settings, and power settings. The GHGA-36-(PV) unit will produce 36 Kg/hr steam at the maximum temperature. The OAB-50 unit will produce 50 Kg/hr steam at the maximum temperature The price will depend on the pressure required and other selected features. The lowest-priced systems are when the steam flow rate is fixed.
Q: Do steam generators work differently than boilers? Ans. Yes, steam generators work differently compared to pressure boilers (1) they are instant on-off, no idling required (2) in a clever way the pressure will only build to the maximum line requirement to improve the efficiency (3) temperatures can be set for very high temperature with high-quality dry steam, and (4) they can be easily matched to other line or cross-line pressure flows. Saves energy. Adds to the world sustainability index. Allows for new reactions and higher productivity options to be explored.
Q: I have a 200 Bar steam line that feeds the entire industrial testing plant, can I use discrete 40 Bar steam GHGA units from you? Ans: Yes the savings are enormous and chances are that you will also be converting from coal, oil, or gas-fired boiler to a clean electric unit. On-off at will. Use units at discrete locations. No dangerously long piping at high pressure and no idling.
Highly Scalable OAB® or GHGA units can produce from 4 kg/hr to over 1000 kg/hr. The modular design allows for easy upgrades and utilizing the unit where it is needed, all without routing steam or venting pipes. MHI is well known for high-quality electronic power and temperature control panels.
