THE HGA-M-04 is a unique device that provides low to high-humidity air or gases like CO2, N2, Ar, and He mixture with H2O. The maximum power is 4KW for this unit. A high-temperature superheated mix of steam-air or steam-gas output. Note that the parameters for air and steam are given in the Unit Features tab. The unit has adjustable humidity.
The high-humidity steam/air mixtures will have varying temperatures depending on the mix. Please review the unit features in the adjacent tab.
Superheated steam is an odorless high-temperature gas (not to be confused with hot water mist). OPUMP-1 (water pump) is a highly recommended option for metering the water flow. Several more options are available and recommended. The airflow control option (flow meter) is generally required.
The BPAN-O-PLUS option is required only if power adjustment is contemplated. Please ensure minimum air and water flow to prevent burnout without the power controller in use.
Voltage: 240 VAC. Please indicate the request on the pull-down menu in the selected options.
Current: Approx. 18 Amps @ 240VAC
Power Consumption: ~4000 Watts
The size envelope is approximately as follows:
Dimensions are about 18″ long and 5.5″ in diameter.
Safety precautions must be taken when dealing with hot gasses, including steam.
Safety: PLEASE DO NOT USE UNIT ON COMBUSTIBLE LIQUIDS. THE DANGER OF SUPERHEATED STEAM SHOULD BE WELL UNDERSTOOD. PLEASE WEAR GLOVES, GLASSES AND A HARD HAT. PROTECTIVE CLOTHING IS REQUIRED. STEAM CAN PENETRATE CLOTHES. Patents applied and pending.
Installation: Installation and use manual provided with the product. The airflow generator is in the user’s scope.
Options: Control thermocouple for the hot air generator part is included. An electrical 240V 50/60Hz supply is required for this unit. 4 KW system requires compressed gas input. Compressed gas is user scope.

Please click on the specifications tab for a typically expected performance at a known setting. Not all the setting widows for power mixture and temperature are known.
If the BPAN-O-PLUS power controller is not purchased, maximum power will require a minimum of 9 to 10 SCFM Airflow or N2 flow.
The temperature is controlled by water flow, airflow, and power controller (if purchased)
