Q:I have to bend strips of sapele 3/4” x 1 1/2” x 9’ to a large arc. I can manually bend the wood. That said there is a bit of pucker factor. Will this generate enough steam for a 10’ box. I just want to soften the wood to help make the bend.

Answer This Question

A:  We suggest a steam box of up to about 2160 cubic inches interior space per steamer. This is a box that is 6" x 6" x 60". For a peice 9' long, you'll need a 10' box, which will require two steam generators, started sequentially so you don't run out of steam from both at the same time. Let us know if you have more questions at 1-888-783-2612.

    Q:Does this unit require distilled water?
    by|Nov 26, 2023
    1 Answer
    Answer This Question

    A:  It's not a requirement, it just allows the steamer to work properly for a longer period of time. As hard water deposits gather on the heating element, it will be less and less efficient and will eventually stop making heat. Distilled water, almost entirely, eliminates that issue. Good luck with your projects.

      Q:Could this be used for a portable sauna steam generator? Is it hot or cold steam?
      by|Feb 25, 2023
      1 Answer
      Answer This Question

      A:  We do not recommend you use this steamer as a portable sauna. It does not have a very big tank so you would have to refill it often and there is no way to control the amount of steam coming out. I am not sure what cold steam is but if you want to know if it is wet or dry steam, it is wet. Feel free to call us at 1-800-328-8251 if you would like to discuss this or have any further questions.

        Easy to follow instructions and set up. Made a steam box using the hose fitting provided. Reached 212 degrees within 15 minutes and held that temperature for the full steaming process.

        Unfortunately the steamer leaked continuously and had next to zero pressure. I could have accomplished the same effect with a pot of boiling water. It just boiled the water and the steam boiled out the sides as much as sending it down the outlet tube.
