Steam is an essential part of our daily lives even though we may not notice it as much. Let’s say you go to a restaurant for lunch, there is a very high chance that some of your food is prepared using steam and not to forget the cleaning of all the utensils. Not only in restaurants, steam has extensive applications in Spas, saloons and gyms. Residential complexes also use steam for daily chores like ironing, community kitchen cooking.
Steam is vital to a number of commercial industries. A huge amount of it is necessary for the successful production of moulded bricks. We’ve all seen the uses of steam in cleaning, whether it’s hot water to remove stains and dirt from our clothes, or the ejection of steam from an iron. You can see the benefits of this quite simply – on a commercial scale, steam can greatly increase the efficiency of processes like pressing and ironing. And also beer producers have been making the most of steam production for a long time. The mash of a beer – made up malt, hops and water – must be heated to various temperatures between two and four hours long.
Steam generated from a steam boiler is used in the process, of course, but that’s not where the usefulness of steam ends – breweries also use steam to clean barrels and bottles again before they are refilled.
Steam is also used in Hospitals and hotels for laundry and cooking, in Textile industry for swivelling dryers, dyeing, rolling and weaving. With the advent of Clean-In-Place and Steam-In-Place processes the cleaning of interior systems without disassembly has proven to be a boon for many industries like Beverage, Brewing, Processes foods, Pharmaceutical and Cosmetics.
