In the last couple Monday Morning Minutes, we showed how the type of humidifier dispersion method could affect the absorption distance. Let’s look at an example.

Ex: 5000 CFM at 55OF Duct temperature to provide a room RH at 35% at 70OF with 50% outside air.


graphic showing how the humidifier dispersion method could affect the absorption distance

  1. Traditional single tube dispersion……… 59” inches absorption
  2. Rapidsorb multiple tube dispersion..….. 22” inches absorption
  3. Ultrasorb panel type dispersion………… 6” inches absorption

As you can see, in tight spaces, Ultrasorb or Rapidsorb can solve wetting problems in ducts.

Next week, we’ll look at how to save energy.
