Steam Revolution


Steam generation is not a new revolution but simply a revisit of practices long gone. After all, steam was the driving force of the Industrial Revolution that began in England over 150 years ago. The world then had coal fueled steam trains, engines, boats, tractor and steam was used extensively for cleaning of factories.


With the advent of the ever present petro-chemical era, steam machines, appliances and its achievements were gradually withdrawn from the market place and replaced with combustion and jet engines, new cleaning agents, fertilizers and pesticides. The world is now completely dominated by the need for oil to make many of the products that we have grown to depend on.


The Italian boiler manufacturers started experimenting again with electrically powered, portable steam-vapor machines for cleaning in the 1970/80s, recognizing the enormous potential of highly pressurized, low moisture content steam as an indoor and general cleaner. They were excited by the sensational results they achieved with the early prototypes. The effectiveness on difficult surfaces and the sanitizing capabilities by these highly portable steamers far exceeded their initial hopes. Therefore steam-vapor sanitation had begun its inexorable growth as the modern, environmentally friendly cleaning alternative in Italy.


Unfortunately many of the early appliances brought to the market were cumbersome to use and unable to maintain a constant steam pressure to support effective cleaning and sanitizing. Experimentation and product development since has resulted in the evolution of the powerful, highly efficient and user friendly appliances that are available today. Menikini is the world's leading specialist manufacturer of steam-vapor appliances for decades.


Acceptance of these modern appliances with continuous steam and steam with vacuum combinations, throughout Europe and America in both domestic and commercial applications is unprecedented and has ensured steam vapor technologies position as the method of choice for efficiency and sustainability in our modern, fast paced world.
