Non-wetting distance is an important consideration in the proper application of steam humidification equipment. Shorter distances required for absorption simplify the job of the design engineer by allowing proper placement of temperature and humidity controllers and other components without fear of inaccurate readings or moisture-damaged equipment. Air-handling unit manufacturers concerned about the “footprint” of their units and end users with limited space in mechanical rooms also benefit.
The Armstrong HumidiPack® is a prefabricated steam humidifier system that is ready for insertion in the duct. The HumidiPack consists of a separator/header and multiple-tube dispersion assembly when supplied for use with an Armstrong steam-generating humdifier. A steam supply control valve, strainer, steam trap and one or two header drain traps are added when HumidiPack is used on pressurized steam.
The HumidiPack accepts steam, separates entrained moisture from it, and admits it to a duct or air-handler air stream via the dispersion assembly to substantially reduce non-wetting distance when compared to traditional humidifiers.
