Steam-Flo steam generators by Sioux
Sioux’s line of Steam-Flo steam generators is quickly becoming the selected choice for curing CIPP and installing fold-and-form PVC pipe liners. The Steam-Flo increases production by transferring heat faster than hot-water curing or ambient curing. The steam cure system increases efficiency with faster setup, and reduces water usage and sewer system pollution. Steam curing releases lower styrene levels and odors, and reduces the risk of liner failure due to heating the liner too quickly. Sioux has been designing and building low-pressure steam generators since 1939. Sioux units are rugged, compact and easy to operate. Sioux offers many different mounting options including completely self-contained, trailer-mounted systems. Sioux specializes in application-specific designs and has the capabilities to design the exact piece of equipment you need. 877/763-4039; www.sioux.com/trenchless-pipeliner-rehabilitation.html
