Steam Units

Steam Units

IBG Steam-units are used for curing epoxy or polyester resin impregnated inliners. Another field of application is the installation of PVC or PE pipes in the forming process. IBG Steam units can also be used as a hybrid system for curing with hot water.

  • State of the art PLC – Software (IBG steamcure 1.6) control system
  • Industry 4.0 life data plus documentation
  • Up to 60 % less oil and energy consumption, thanks to the optimized efficiencies programming of the IBG steamcure
  • stainless steel piping
  • 10 years warranty on stainless steel pipes
  • 2 years warranty on the complete system
  • 24/7 worldwide service support through online access by IBG technicians
  • Compact design up to 2000 kg/h steam for inliners up to DN 2.100 (84 inch)
  • TÜV tested & certified steam components and welding seam
  • All system components are driven by frequency converter (low energy input)
  • IBG hybrid system for steam & boiled water
  • More than 220 steam units worldwide delivered.



IBG steam units can be used for the rehabilitation of DN 50 – 2.000 mm / 2” to 80”

pipes and are made entirely of components with steam certification. They are according to customer requirement and challenges on the construction site. The models are therefore available in different sizes and designs.

 Software: IBG Steamcure® 1.6 

The software IBG steamcure® 1.6, is used for reliable installation and documentation of inliner in pipe system. The software enables the control of the optimal energy input as well as the automatic regulation of the curing parameters. This permanent calculation of the optimal parameters regarding steam quantity; air quantity; volume flow rate; temperature and pressure would not be possible with a manual operation and an energy input reduction of up to 60% would be unachievable. Due to the Industry 4.0 standard, a permanent documentation of the process parameters (if requested via Internet connection with real-time data transmission) is carried out, which forms a determining basis regarding the QA standards. This is the basis for reproducible construction site quality. Also of high importance is the wireless connection of the B-Station (incl. battery pack), which allows a continuous control of the outlet valves (pressure and temperature) without additional personnel on site. The software is available in all common languages and technical units (of measure).

Training: IBG steamcure® 1.6 & Steam-units

BG offers basic training for all systems at our training center in Alzenau. In addition, all system operators are accompanied and trained by IBG technicians on a construction site assignment. This makes it possible to avoid initial application problems and creates confidence among the employees. Also in the further course of application, our technicians are available for problem solutions via internet access at any time. This avoids considerable travel costs and the response time is extremely short. The "plug&play" system design of IBG HydroTech also has a positive influence on this, enabling the user to easily replace components on site in the event of damage. Supplementary training courses can also be requested from our service office at any time.
