The electric iron steamer converts electrical energy into heat energy, and the temperature is determined by the power and the duration of the power-on. Under the same power, the longer the power-on time, the higher the temperature.
As for how electrical energy is converted into heat energy, this has to be done through heating elements. The heating elements of electric irons are divided into two types. These two heating elements have different advantages and disadvantages. One is a mica skeleton heating element, and the other is an It is a metal tube heating element. The mica skeleton structure is simple, the heat is uniform, and the maintenance is easy, but the service life is short, the oxidation speed is fast, and the impact of humid air is obvious. The metal tube has high thermal efficiency, high strength, long service life, and good moisture resistance, but the structure is more complicated, which is more troublesome than mica skeleton maintenance.
Electric irons are mainly divided into four types: ordinary type, temperature control type, steam type, and steam spray type.
Ordinary electric irons are early products, and there are almost no products on the market. Structurally, it is also very simple. The components generally include a bottom plate, a pressure plate, a handle, an electric heating element, etc., but the disadvantage is obvious, that is, it does not have the function of adjusting the temperature.
A temperature control device is added to the temperature-regulated electric iron. Generally, there is a knob on the electric iron, which is used to control the temperature. It is usually adjustable between 60°C and 250°C.
The steam-type electric iron adds a generator and a steam control device on the basis of the temperature-adjustable electric iron, which can not only adjust the temperature but also spray steam.
The steam spray type iron is a type with higher functions. On the basis of the steam type electric iron, a spray system is added, that is to say, this type of electric iron has the functions of temperature adjustment, air injection, and spray, so Of course, it has become an electric iron with the best ironing effect, and it is more popular in the market.
