DriSteem Installation of Steam Dispersion Panels at General Mills MN Campus to Create a Healthy and Comfortable Work Environment

Eden Prairie, MN – January 15, 2020 - DRI-STEEM Corporation (DriSteem), the leading manufacturer of humidification, evaporative cooling, and water treatment products, announced today the success on the installation of steam dispersion panels at food giant, General Mills’ Golden Valley, MN campus.  The decision to install the steam dispersion panels was the result of the company’s interest in creating a healthy working environment for their employees.

Besides offering  employees a wellness program, General Mills also advocates for employees on health-related workplace concerns with one of their main areas of concern being indoor air quality. Prior to the install, General Mills had complaints regarding static shock and was concerned about static shock affecting its office equipment.

General Mills’ health and facilities team recommended a humidification system and upgraded their undersized system by hardwiring them into the building’s automation system for ease of centralized monitoring and control. DriSteem’s steam dispersion panels were a major part of this upgrade and their design and installation has allowed for a significant decrease in static electricity, dryness and overall health on the campus.

“It’s always so fulfilling when you are able to go above and beyond meeting the needs of your customers,” said Sima Higginson, Product Manager.  “DriSteem is pleased to provide the key components to meeting a health and comfort focused humidification standard.”

DriSteem’s Ultra-sorb(R) Model MP is a multi-purpose humidifier dispersion panel for both pressurized and atmospheric steam application in AHUs or ducts. Designed for rapid, drip-free absorption, steam does not condense on downstream devices. The Ultra-sorb MP dispersion panel::

  • Disperses steam generated by pressurized steam boilers or by non-pressurized steam generators
  • Provides Ultra-sorb performance for jobs requiring less capacity than Models LV and LH
  • Offers the lowest cost of installation
  • Is available with DriSteem’s industry-leading high-performance dispersion tube insulation
