Aqua-Nova represents the 3rd generation of Multi-effect WFI Water Still and Pure Steam Generators where proven, reliable technique and modern design are combined in an efficient way.

Our original design from 1981, with ‘float’ type heat exchangers and low steam velocities combined with cyclone separation and proportional media regulation, is still the most reliable way of producing Water For Injection (WFI) and Pure Steam (PS) as per the latest, international pharmacopoeias.


System Operation

AQUA-NOVA Pure Steam Generators operates in the same way as the 1st column of a multi-effect still. All feed water is normally heated to a minimum temperature >143 °C. The PS Generator operation is self-regulating even at pressure variations in heating steam and feed water and adjusts automatically to the consumption variations, needing no feed water tank.

All units are inspected and approved by the pressure vessel authorities, according to the relevant pressure vessel code.

Product Specification

Our ‘float’ type heat exchangers are fully submerged in the water thereby avoiding thermal stress, which can originate micro cracks in the material. The tubes and the mantle work under the same conditions of steam & water whereby contraction and expansion is absolutely uniform.
