Vacuum steam conversion

FredS Member Posts: 2
As a research project, we are looking into the possibility of converting existing old multifamily low pressure steam systems to vacuum systems. The motivation for doing this is to gain the benefits of greater efficiency and comfort possible by creating steam at lower temperatures with faster distribution, and reduced water consumption.

If anyone has any thoughts on the feasibility (or impossibility) of accomplishing this, please post them or contact me. We would be interested in what obstacles would have to be overcome, design details necessary to make such a conversion work, what the realistic benefits might be, and the long term viability (maintenance issues) of the system.
