Reimers manufactures stainless steel electric steam boilers for those applications requiring pure steam and using de-ionized water having a minimum specific resistivity of 1 megohm/cm. These units provide a stainless steel surface to all wet areas and are designed and constructed within the scope of A.S.M.E. Code. This limits the design pressure to 100 psig and maximum pressure vessel size to 5 cubic feet. We offer various models from .15 to 12 B.H.P.
Stainless boilers minimize contaminants because all-wetted metal parts are Stainless Steel. If copper, iron or other materials cannot be in the steam and/or process, a stainless steel boiler is the choice for clean steam.
Stainless steel is not a single alloy, but a part of a large family of alloys with different properties for each member.
There are five classes of stainless steel: austenitic, ferritic, martensitic, duplex, and precipitation hardening. They are named according to how their microstructure resembles a similar microstructure in steel. The properties of these classes differ but are essentially the same within the same class. Ferritic and austenitic stainless steels are used primarily because of the corrosion resistance, and good mechanical properties over a broad temperature range from cryogenics to high temperature. Stainless steel has been applied successfully in a large variety of environments including acids, fresh water, and seawater.
