How can you bring steam to your hammam?

It is required for Hammam to use steam generator. Electric steam humidifier is most of the time preferred for its fast response, compact size and easy installation.

However, selection of the proper humidification solution should be based on the following:

  • What is the required maximum humidification capacity (load) required?
  • What sources of energies are available on site?

A perfume pump should be installed on the steam distribution pipe.
