Humidification Basics Part 10: Types of Humidifiers

Humidification Basics Part 10: Types of Humidifiers

Now that we know there are two processes (adiabatic or isothermal) by which we can achieve humidification, let’s talk about the various types of humidifying equipment within these process categories.

Starting with isothermal, there are several types of humidifiers and configurations to choose from. The common denominator is....

Humidification Basics Part 7: Isothermal Humidification

In many ways, Psychrometrics is like a Rubik's Cube. Change one thing, and you automatically change something else.  But instead of shifting colored cubes around, we’re shifting measures of air, moisture, and temperature.  And, like the Rubik’s cube, there is more than one way....

Humidification Basics Part 4:  How to Calculate Humidification Load for Natural and Mechanical Ventilated Spaces

How do we determine how much moisture should be added to the air for a given application? In other words, how do we calculate the humidification load for a given building?

The basis of this calculation is the same, whether you intend on using natural, mechanical, or economizer cycle ventilation. Natural and mechanical ventilation methods are virtually the same, which is why....
