The Condair ME evaporative humidifier offers low-energy humidification and evaporative cooling to an air-handling unit or duct. A single unit can deliver up to 1000 kg/h of moisture and 630 kW of evaporative cooling to an air stream using less than 300 W of electricity.

The humidifierís patented hydraulic unit has many features that differentiate the system from other evaporative humidifiers. The compact unit is made of toughened glass-reinforced plastic and includes a water tank, up to five pumps and a pumped drain. It can be located inside or outside of an AHU. Exterior mounting enables all mechanical components to be located outside the duct and most maintenance to be carried out without any AHU downtime.

The use of several water pumps rather than s single large pump enables energy consumption to be proportional to the required output.

The pumped drain returns the system to full output more rapidly after flushes. Other features include water conductivity and temperature sensors, push-fit connections, finger-release screws and hand-mounted pump mounts for easy servicing.

The complete hydraulic unit can be quickly removed and replaced, minimising downtime and redundancy planning.

The water tray of the evaporative module can be fitted with a submerged UV water purifier, which continues to be effective even when there is no demand for humidification and the pumps are not operating.
