Sloop I really wasn't aware that teak was unsteamable, I've steamed white oak, mahogony, cherry and teak, I've been using a wagner wallpaper steamer and a 8" dia pvc tube about 6' long,( very portable and easy to stow ) the tube has 3/8th dowels though it about every foot for a material rest and the tube has a vent hole to vent and drain at the lower bottom ( ya gotta keep a slight angle on the tube to drain ) also, you would the drain hole large enough to have a easy & steady flow of steam, not a jet steam
As far as temp and time? temp is around 200 degs; most steamer don't go any higher as theres' no need, time varies around 1-1.5 plus hrs depending on material.
