Steam Coils

Luvata steam coils are specifically designed with condensate management in mind. Tube and connection size are combined to limit condensate retention in the coil, preventing water hammer while delivering even distribution of steam on the entire face.

With single-tube coils, the steam supply and condensate return headers and connections are normally at the opposite ends of the coil. Uniform steam distribution to each of the coil core tubes is accomplished through careful header-assembly design. The steam supply connection should be located in the centre of the header, with a perforated plate-type baffle located directly behind this connection. Carefully sized orifices are located in each of the core tube entrances into the header. 

Dual-tube coils utilise a smaller inner tube, with precisely spaced, directional, orifice-type perforations. This helps to direct condensate flow to the return header. The steam supply, condensate-return headers, and connections may be fabricated in 'same-end' or 'opposite-end' orientation.

Standard or steam distributing construction is available for high and low pressure applications. Standard steam type is 5/8" or 1" tube steam coil, known as the single-tube design. 

Any steam coil can freeze when exposed to sub-zero temperatures without the proper drainage of the condensate. Steam-distributing 5/8" and 1" tubes are "freeze resistant", known as the dual-tube design.

Vacuum Breaker

The addition of a vacuum breaker will allow the coil to drain the liquid from the coil and keep the coil from a freezing condition.  As the demand for heat returns, it will help eliminate 'water-hammer' conditions.

Free floating core

Steam casings are designed to let the core float free, to allow thermal expansion without creating stress and wear on the tubes. Since the core is not supported by the tubes there is no resultant tube wear.

Custom Installation

The environmental testing chamber at McKinley Climatic Laboratory, Eglin Air-Force Base depends on custom-installed Heatcraft coils to test the durability and performance of aircraft systems at temperatures of -650F.
