The reason for it is that at a pressure of 15 PSI (pound per square inch) water boils at a higher temperature (250°F, 121°C) than at ambient pressure.



The reason for it is that at a pressure of 15 PSI (pound per square inch) water boils at a higher temperature (250°F, 121°C) than at ambient pressure.(212°F, 100°C). This high temperature kills the contaminants if applied for a sufficient long time span.
