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 8: Adiabatic Humidification

In the previous blog we discussed isothermal humidification.  Today, we’re going to talk about the other method for humidification, which is called “adiabatic.”

Adiabatic humidification puts water (not steam) directly into the air using a spray mechanism or wetted medium, and the heat from the surrounding air causes the water to evaporate. So instead of...

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....
