A: Dry steaming directly converts electrical energy into heat energy. Dry steaming is cleaner because it does not contain moisture. Such as far infrared products. Wet steaming is the production of high-temperature steam by heating volcanic rocks and watering them. The temperature of the volcanic stones in the furnace is high, and the effect of dry steaming can be achieved without adding water (use without water will affect the service life of the furnace, so this method of use is not recommended), the heating furnace occupies a certain space, especially suitable for larger saunas house. Such as sauna stove products.
