Pressurised steam generator


Frequently Asked Questions

Can my Philips iron overheat or build too much pressure?

The pressure and temperature are controlled by a pressostat and a thermostat respectively.

If the pressure or temperature becomes too high, the boiler is switched off automatically.

The boiler will cool down and the pressure will be released.
