These photos are of a rooftop Gas-to-Steam Humidifier that was recently provided by Q Applied Systems, Corp and installed at a San Diego diagnostic laboratory. The humidifier was manufactured by Pure Humidifier Company and was part of a design/build installation by Apex Mechanical. The diagnostics laboratory area requires 100% make-up air and the process requires a humidity range between 35%RH – 60%RH. Due to exponential growth the lab must operate extended shifts with no downtime. Ultimately, a gas-to-steam humidifier was selected for this project. The humidifier is designed for use with reverse osmosis or de-ionized make-up water which allows for a continuous output without the need for a blow down cycle that is employed with models using regular tap or softened make-up water. The factory weather enclosure allowed for the steam supply piping, electrical, make-up water and drain lines to be routed through the service chase built into the enclosure floor.
Humidity control is an important part of many industries and processes. Even in Southern California, where the weather is most appealing to humans, we still must address the extremely dry Santa Ana winds as well as cold winter nights. With 100% make-up air, as in the case above, humidification is required to combat the outside air conditions that can negatively impact the room conditions in only a matter of minutes. Humidification systems can be designed to assure the minimum operating requirements or to provide very fine moisture stability over a required temperature range. Many factors are taken into consideration when selecting a system. Contact Q Applied Systems today and we can assist in determining the best system options for your specific application.
