The Steam Bath Generator
The main purpose of a steam bath is to envelop you in steam so that you can detoxify your body through sweat. Without a steam generator, there is no steam bath, which is why you must take measures to ensure that you’re getting the right one for your unique situation.
A steam generator, when activated, converts water to steam. It’s composed of a water feed and leveling system, a stainless-steel water reservoir, and an industrial-grade heating element. About the size of a briefcase, the steam generator automatically takes
in water, boils it, and delivers hot steam to the chamber.
A steam generator is classified by the power rating of its heating elements, measured in kilowatts. The higher the kilowatts, the faster it’s able to produce steam. Though the smallest steam generators may be able to run on 120 volts, most units need to be connected to a 240-volt line. A licensed electrician should do this installation; otherwise, the warranty may become void.
When properly sized, the steam generator should be able to produce a bath temperature of 115 to 125°F (46 to 52°C) with 98 percent humidity. The correct size is typically determined by finding the cubic space of the steam room (length x width x height); however, other factors influence sizing, such as steam bath design and construction materials.
