Plant steam is fine for applications where it doesn’t come into direct contact with the product, as well as in many applications where the product would be unaffected by low levels of contamination. However, the possibility that water treatment chemicals or other contaminants such as cross-contamination from cleaning-in-place (CIP) could end up contaminating the product is increasingly seen as unacceptable.
Many food and drink manufacturers are, therefore, looking to up their game by switching to cleaner forms of steam. It is a move that other, high-purity operators such as pharmaceutical manufacturers, healthcare providers and electronics companies have already made, either for regulatory / guidance or product quality reasons.
