Don’t be fooled by improper claims of disinfection
At Advap we believe people should live happy, healthy lives. Fueled by a frustration that traditional cleaning products are loaded with chemicals tied to cancer risk, we’ve spent 25 years pioneering steam vapor systems and continually improving them. Our proprietary Thermal Accelerated Nano Crystal Sanitation (TANCS®) technology is a factory-installed internal component designed to kill microscopic organic matter such as germs, bacteria, and viruses in mere seconds. In fact, in a study published in the American Journal of Infection Control, researchers in the School of Environmental Health at the University of Michigan found that TANCS®-equipped steam vapor systems achieve a greater kill rate in 3 seconds than a 20-minute exposure to bleach. As with anything that starts trending, Advap-inspired lookalike products with no scientific verification, lab testing, or peer review to back their claims are popping up over the web in the pandemic era. Before you consider buying these products, it’s important you understand what claims the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) does and does not allow. Disinfection devices are subject to rigorous EPA testing, and an establishment is assigned a unique number only if their products pass. Advap’s number is “EPA Est. No. 8121-WA-01” and—by law—it must appear on each steam vapor system we offer for sale. Products without an EPA establishment number are, at best, sanitizer devices. Although sanitize and disinfect are often used interchangeably, there is a significant difference between the two.

Designed to perform and built to last
Buying a good steam vapor system is an investment in your health and it should last a long time. Advap steam vapor systems are more expensive than some competitive models, but you get what you pay for. By using the highest quality components, a dedicated team of experienced technicians, and cutting edge manufacturing processes and technology development such as TANCS®, we are able to build the world’s best steam vapor systems.
Continuous refill technology
Our continuous refill system allows water to be added at any time. Simply open the reservoir cap, which is not pressurized. The boiler still holds superheated steam when water is sought from the reservoir. This allows you to work non-stop.
Hard impact-resistant shell
Our steam vapor systems are constructed from nearly indestructible polycarbonate plastic—the stuff that football helmets are made from. It’s lightweight yet incredibly tough. And unlike stainless steel, it absorbs minimal heat.
Lifetime boiler warranty
Our warranties cover parts, performance, and return shipping both ways. Since fewer than 2% of the products in the U.S. currently under warranty have been returned to us for service, it’s the best warranty you’ll probably never need.
