Steamist Granted Patent for Dual-Sensor Control Technology

Two Is Better Than One

Revealing the Steamist Patented Technology

A U.S. Patent has been issued covering dual temperature sensor technology for Steamist’s residential steam shower controls. All of our current digital control models are equipped with this patented proprietary feature, which helps prevent uncomfortable temperature swings – taking user comfort to a higher level.

The human body is very sensitive to temperature changes. Fluctuations of more than a few degrees inside a steam shower can make the user experience much less enjoyable. Maintaining the user’s desired “setpoint” temperature is largely dependent on the accuracy of sensor readings from the control inside the steam enclosure.

A typical steam shower control only has one sensor, which often detects conflicting temperatures from inside the enclosure and from the cold tile wall to which it is mounted. These “false cold” readings cause the control to direct the steam generator to add more steam, pushing temperatures above the user’s comfort level.

Steamist’s newly patented technology overcomes this problem by adding a second sensor, positioned to get a more accurate reading of actual temperature inside the steam enclosure. Steamist 550, 450 and 250 steam shower controls all calculate the need for steam based on combined dual-sensor input.
