Super Heated Steam

Superheated steam is steam that has been heated to a temperature higher than the boiling point of water at the given pressure. It’s like taking regular steam and giving it an extra boost of heat, without it turning back into water.

Because it’s so hot, superheated steam has excellent drying capabilities. It can dry things very quickly and efficiently, while using less energy than traditional drying methods. It’s also good because it’s a clean, environmentally friendly way to dry things.
