    Default Help with Induction heating for steam

    Hi,

    I'm working on a project that would require the ability to heat water into steam via electric induction, preferably DC or via AC converter if necessary.

    I'm thinking a monotube design with an induction coil surrounding it that could produce steam from 2 quarts of water in say 30 seconds or less.

    Anyone here have experience with that kind of design?

    Thanks,

    I think my Denon I used to have did that. I'd have to check the manual to know for sure though. It had a lot of buttons on it.

    I'd rather buy buckets of steam from the hardware store instead.

    Come on guys; this is a serious thread. In a few more minutes someone else (with one post too) will recommend a state of the art, cheap, reliable, world class, reference Steam Generator. I am waiting for that because I've been looking for something like this for years.

    Just remove the top (side) cover on your computer open and put a water cooler on top of the CPU. Fill the water slowly into the tube (pipe) slowly and dip it in a bucket of water. Pull the other end of the pipe high enough so the water will not flow by itself. Steam should comes off from the open end if you do it right. Oh....yeah, I forgot - you should be running the virus check software at full speed and see how the CPU heats up very quickly.

    It may not be 30 seconds but see if you can improve the time by running more programs simultaneously at the same time.

    The correct mathmatical way to do it is apply this formula.

    DC induction heating?

    I think you need to hit the textbooks a little harder.

    I use induction heating at work for 30 years.

    Why are you asking this question?

    Definitely use a single tube. I would use one with vanes on the inside to maximize surface area between the water and the metal.

    Get a copy of Davies & Simpson's Induction Heating Handbook through interlibrary-loan.
