    ultimateSAM is a pressurised or atmospheric-pressure steam distributor, designed to distribute dry steam uniformly and efficiently in ducts or air handling units. SAM stands for Short-Absorption Manifold, meaning a steam distributor with a short absorption distance (even less than 200 mm).

    It has been designed to be “made to measure” for the AHU or duct, while ensuring low air heat gain (max. 2 °C/4 °F). All of the metal parts installed inside the AHU or duct are made from AISI 304 steel, so as to guarantee hygiene and a long operating life.

    The features of the ultimateSAM steam distribution system make it the perfect system for all AHU/duct humidification needs, providing designers, installers and service personnel with the best possible solution.

    The wide range of products, with a vast choice of steam flow-rates and numerous options, make it the ideal system for various applications, including hospitals and the pharmaceutical industry.

    Energy efficiency

    Maximum energy savings. Insulated models reduce air heating and condensation.


    Suitable for high-precision humidification thanks to uniform steam distribution in the AHU/duct and the valves with electrical operation for even more accurate modulation. 

    Hygiene and materials

    Made from AISI 304, with PPS components (Ryton with a continuous operating temperature of 220°C/428°F). The gaskets in contact with the steam are made from silicone for high temperatures (150°C/300°F max) or EPDM for those not in contact with the steam.
