Anti-Foaming Energy Conservation System:
The AFEC technology developed by the N.E.P.
engineering team offers a unique safety and energy conservation
management of expensive boiling water and steam. The AFEC system
is made of a mass measuring water sensor, anti-foam sensor, electronic
high temperature sensor, interactive LCD display and microprocessor
The AFEC system is unique because:
The water sensor cannot be falsely triggered by
foam formation on the top of the boiling water. This eliminates
the problem of heating elements burning out in free air.
The additional foam-sensing probe, which is unique
to our design, would automatically initiate a drain cycle upon foam
formation. Unlike other humidifiers, the drain can be initiated
only when necessary without having continuous skimming to drain
expensive boiling water. This is an excellent energy conservation
The SK300 is unique in having fast actin
electronic safety temperature sensors inside the steam container in
very close proximity to the heating elements. Other humidifiers
use only a bimetallic external electro-mechanical temperature switch
(which is also standard on all SK300s). Therefore, the AFEC
system provides an additional layer of protection.
