Condair has extended its range of electric steam humidifiers to include new IP55 rated models suitable for outdoor installation. The enclosures on the Condair RS resistive steam and Condair EL electrode boiler steam humidifiers enable the units to be located on rooftops and exposed to the elements.
Rather than installing standard humidifiers inside a protective housing on a rooftop, the new outdoor units have purpose-built IP55-rated casings. This means they take up much less room and are easier to install.
The enclosures incorporate a thermostat-controlled heater and fan unit to maintain the internal temperature at an optimum level with outside ambient conditions ranging from -20° to 40°C. An anti-freeze valve will ensure the humidifier completely drains should the unit experience temperatures of less than 6°C during periods of in-operation.
The new outdoor humidifiers can be wall-mounted, allowing them to be attached to an AHU, or free-standing. Lockable doors are removable for easy access and optional internal lighting improves visibility for servicing and maintenance.
