How to calculate the steam load for a steam bath?

  • 1 kg/h (0,75 Kw/h) per qm³ of steam bath size

There is no steam production, even though the steam generator has been activated and the display is active.

  • Possibly there is poor air circulation and the steam bath temperature has remained above the programmed set value for a long period of time, then install an exhaust fan
  • In case the unit has been switched off remotely, then switch on the unit using the remote switch, or install a jumper between the terminals
  • If the temperature exceeds the set desired value and no steam demand is present, then please check the desired and actual temperature values

The set temperature has not been reached.

  • Maybe there is an incorrect output estimate, please check the output data, the steam bath insulation and the dimensions
  • Maybe there is a phase failure (external fuse), then replace a fuse
  • It is possible that the unit’s steam generation output limitation prevents a full output. Please check the steam generation output limitation parameter
  • If the unit is being operated at “cylinder full” (only with electrode steam humidifiers), please see message “maintenance” / “cylinder”

There is no visible steam in the cabin.

  • The steam bath is too well insulated. Provide for removal of heat
  • Maybe there is insufficient air circulation in the steam bath, then install an exhaust fan or check the exhaust fan
  • Maybe there is excessive heat supply (i.e. from heated benches or walls). In that case reduce the heat supply

The temperature is too high.

  • Maybe the temperature sensor has not been correctly calibrated. Check the parameter “adjustment” of the actual temperature value

The essence delivery into the steam bath is absent or insufficient.

  • Maybe there is no essence in the reservoir. In that case,  replenish the essence
  • Maybe the essence injector has not been activated. Activate the essence injector (check power supply to the essence injector)
  • Maybe the essence delivery duration is too short. In that case, increase the essence delivery duration
  • Maybe the essence delivery interval is too long. In that case, shorten the essence delivery interval
  • Maybe the fuse or relay in the control for essence delivery is faulty. Replace fuse. Check power supply to the essence solenoid valve
  • Maybe the tube in the peristaltic pump is defective (essence flows back into the essence reservoir through the return line). In that case, replace the tube into the peristaltic pump

There is excessive essence delivery into the steam bath.

  • Maybe the essence delivery duration is too long. In that case reduce the essence delivery duration
  • Maybe the essence delivery interval is too short. In that case lengthen the essence delivery interval

No steam is exiting the steam nozzle. Water leaks periodically from the drain hose while the pump is not running.

  • Maybe there is an excess pressure in the duct system (max. overpressure 1200 Pa). In that case lengthen the drain hose
  • Maybe there is a false steam direction installation (water bag). In that case lay the steam hose as specified in the manual

Electrode generator: There is light / sparks in the cylinder.

  • The appearance of light or sparks suggests rapid loss of electrode material (brown-black deposits) and very high water conductivity. Please check the water values
  • Maybe the blow-down pump is not working properly or is defective. In that case, increase the blow-down frequency and / or the blow-down volume. Also, check the blow-down pump function and replace the blow-down pump if necessary

Electrode generator: Uneven electrode wear.

  • Maybe the electrode(s) is / are not supplied with power. In that case, check the breaker and replace if necessary
  • Maybe the main contactor does not operate. In that case, check main contactor and replace if needed
  • Maybe there is a uneven work load. In that case, check the power supply (measure voltage differential)
  • There could be an uneven immersion depth of electrodes. The unit has not been mounted plumbed and leveled. In that case, install a unit plumb and level
